MEC-enabled 5G Use Cases

The future of mobile and internet technologies are manifesting advancements beyond the existing scope of science. The concepts of automated driving augmented-reality and machine-type-communication are quite sophisticated and require an elevation of the current mobile infrastructure for launching. The fifth-generation (5G) mobile technology serves as the solution though it lacks a proximate networking infrastructure to satisfy the service guarantees. Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC) envisages such an edge computing platform. In this survey we are revealing security vulnerabilities of key 5G-based use cases deployed in the MEC context. Probable security flows of each case are specified while countermeasures are proposed for mitigating them.
