Clever Project Publication: Real – time clustering based on deep embeddings for threat detection in 6G networks

ABSTRACT Trials and deployments of sixth Generation (6G) wireless networks, delivering extreme capacity, reliability, and efficiency, are expected as early as 2030. Attempts from both industry and academia are trying to define the next generation network infrastructure. 6G will set in motion the fourth industrial revolution, delivering global, integrated intelligence. In this scenario, Artificial Intelligence (AI)-assisted architecture for 6G networks will realize knowledge discovery, automatic network adjustment and intelligent service provisioning. The long-term vision for implementing 6G security is to implement an autonomous, self-learning AI-assisted architecture that can perform threat mitigation without disrupting the normal use, enabling the resilience and reliability of the network and fulfilling security automation. This work roposes a first implementation of a proactive threat discovery service to be deployed at 6G base stations, paving the way for collective network intelligence in the context of cybersecurity mechanisms. Specifically, a fully unsupervised Deep Learning (DL) model is presented, able to recognize both Denial of Service (DoS) Hulk and DoS Goldeneye, with 97.0% and 92.2% mean F1-score respectively.
