The security landscape of the telecommunications networks is changing very rapidly. Advanced Persistent Threats are evolving and will be used widely by attackers. As IoT is now advancing to a large scale business and 5G is maturing to commercial networks, the efficient and effective detection and analysis of vulnerabilities will be a significant issue. In this paper, we introduce 5G network slicing and propose a model where user device testing can be isolated to a dedicated test network slice. By this concept, even very advanced malware in a user device can be detected and analysed.
