Smart Farming depends on internet of things (IoT) devices and sensors to monitor vast farm fields, guiding farmers’ decisions about crop management through rich data. But it only takes one security flaw for all stakeholders within the ecosystem to be impacted. If hackers gain access to a single sensor, they can navigate their way to the farm-management application servers and manipulate data. Crop productivity levels are falsified, both basic and complex condition-monitoring systems are distorted, and real-time harm occurs through automatic IoT sensors. At stake is not only the productivity of crops, but the food that supplies livestock and humans: What if there was no corn for you?

As the world waits for the introduction of 5G networks, the industry gears up to address the security challenges that may accompany 5G. The 5G networks would essentially promote the use of a huge number of interconnected devices, a tremendous increase in bandwidth, and collaborative functioning of legacy and new access technologies. Undoubtedly, the upcoming 5G environment would demand the deployment of additional security mechanisms to ensure business continuity. 5G systems are meant to be service-oriented, which is why it is important to address the security challenges appropriately and to focus on instilling stronger security and privacy settings in 5G networks.

Background

On February 27th Radware noticed an increase in activity on UDP port 11211. As other organizations began to disclose a trend in UDP amplified attacks over UDP port 11211, Radware’s ERT Research team and the Threat Research Center began preparing for the inevitable. With a Bandwidth Amplification Factor (BAF) ranging between 10,000x and 52,000x, we knew that due to this exposure and publication that attackers would be quick to adopt this method and could easily reach volumes well over 500Gbps.
