Secure Federated Learning in 5G networks

Mechanisms to reduce threats to end-user privacy are needed to take full advantage of ML. We seamlessly integrate Federated Learning (FL) into the 3GPP 5G Network Data Analytics (NWDA) architecture, and add a Multi-Party Computation (MPC) protocol for protecting the confidentiality of local updates. We evaluate the protocol and find that it has much lower overhead than previous work, without affecting ML performance.
