A survey on security issues of 5G NR: Perspective of artificial dust and artificial rain
Misbah Shafi, Rakesh Kumar Jha, Manish Sabraj

5G NR (New Radio) incorporates concepts of novel technologies such as spectrum sharing, D2D communication, UDN, and massive MIMO. However, providing security and identifying the security threats to these technologies occupies the prime concern. This paper intends to provide an ample survey of security issues and their countermeasures encompassed in the technologies of 5G NR. Further, security concerns of each technology are defined mathematically. Thereby defining the impact on the factors of security. Moreover, a methodology is developed in which the influence on security due to artificially generated rain and artificially generated dust on the wireless communication network is studied. By doing so, an attacking scenario is identified, where a half-duplex attack in D2D communication is attained. Half-duplex attack specifies the attack solely on the downlink to spoof the allocated resources, with reduced miss-rate. Thus, ultra-reliable and adequate advances are required to be addressed to remove the obstacles that create a hindrance in achieving the secured and authenticated communicating network.
