The President’s National Security Telecommunications Advisory Committee scheduled an Aug. 12 vote on an upcoming report on the use of software-defined networking and its cybersecurity implications when it comes to protecting 5G networks, Nextgov reported Friday.

Ray Dolan, co-chair of the subcommittee on SDN, said at a teleconference Friday the report’s first draft will be available in April for preliminary feedback.

Josh Steinman, deputy assistant to the president for cybersecurity, and Bradford Willke, acting director of stakeholder engagement and cyber infrastructure resilience at the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, were among the administration officials during the call that said SDN would be the primary option to ensure 5G network security.
