Abstract

Botnets are one of the most powerful cyberthreats affecting continuity
and delivery of existing network services. Detecting and mitigating attacks
promoted by botnets become a greater challenge with the advent of 5G
networks, as the number of connected devices with high mobility capabilities,
the volume of exchange data, and the transmission rates increase significantly.
Here, a 5G-oriented solution is proposed for proactively detecting and
mitigating botnets in a highly dynamic 5G network. 5G subscribers’ mobility
requires dynamic network reconfiguration, which is handled by combining
Software-Defined Network and Network Function Virtualization techniques.
