Trust in Telecom Systems – A perspective from the HORSE project

In today’s telecommunications landscape, trust is essential for security. It’s based on attributes like identity verification, expected behavior, authorized access, and capability. Traditional systems assumed trust once granted, posing security risks over time. To address this, the Zero Trust architecture questions trust at every resource request, focusing on user identity and device health. Policies are continually updated to determine trustworthiness.
