1 - Threat Detection and Protection of Current and Legacy Protocols and Networks

TTA #1 seeks approaches to protect cell phone users from being tracked, having their calls and text messages monitored without user authorization, or hijacked due to inherent SS7/Diameter challenges. It also seeks vendor agnostic techniques to protect the core network. Goal 1: Data Filtering and Anomaly Detection to Improve SS7 Security Goal 2: Threat Assessment and Mitigations for the Diameter IWF Goal 3: Vendor Agnostic Protection Methods for the Core Network (Please review the BAA Call document for complete details of this TTA and its goals.)

2 - Fifth Generation (5G) Network Security

TTA #2 seeks the development of security capabilities that leverage 5G virtual functions/network slicing to define methods and approaches to achieve: a) flexible 5G security architecture tailored for government environments; b) government controlled security policy; c) end-to-end security for UE to the core; and d) secure voice implementation for federal government users. Technical approaches should indicate whether the approach supports 5G phase 1, 5G phase 2, or both, and whether the 3GPP standards will require changes to implement the approaches demonstrated. The security implications of moving to a new protocol and any need to support backwards compatibility with SS7 and Diameter may also be areas for research, if new protocols are part of the technical approach. Goal 1: Unified Family of 5G Security Techniques Goal 2: Security Architecture for Government Using Network Slicing Goal 3: End-to-End Security from the Mobile Device to the Core Goal 4: Interoperable Secure Voice for the Federal Government (Please review the BAA Call document for complete details of this TTA and its goals.)

3 - Mobile Network Traffic Visibility for the Enterprise

TTA #3 seeks to improve protection for mobile devices and enterprise backend systems in managed mobile networks by monitoring traffic from mobile devices. While adhering to all privacy laws and regulations, there are three goals for this TTA described in greater detail below. The first goal is to develop and implement a capability to identify suspicious network traffic patterns. The second goal is develop methods to direct mobile traffic into an enterprise controlled filtering system. Lastly, the third goal is to develop methods to categorize mobile traffic to support Goal 2. Goal 1: Track Mobile Traffic Goal 2: Enable Mobile Traffic Filtering Goal 3: Categorization of Mobile Traffic (Please review the BAA Call document for complete details of this TTA and its goals.)
