The purpose of the ITU-T Manual on Security in Telecommunications and Information Technology is to provide a broad introduction to the security work of ITU-T. It is directed towards those who have responsibility for, or an interest in, information and communications security and the related standards, and those who simply need to gain a better understanding of ICT security issues and the corresponding ITU-T Recommendations.



Some specific approaches to network security

In this section, approaches to protect various types of network are reviewed. The section begins with a look at the security requirements for Next Generation Networks. This is followed by a review of mobile communications networks which are in transition from mobility based on a single technology (such as CDMA or GSM) to mobility across heterogeneous platforms using the Internet Protocol (IP). Next, security provisions for home networks and cable television are examined. Lastly, the challenges of security for ubiquitous sensor networks are presented.
