The implementation plan is being developed by the White House National Security and Economic Councils and is due in September. The plan is required by the Secure 5G and Beyond Act of 2020, which President Trump signed into law in March.
At the same time, the administration published the National Strategy to Secure 5G.
The act calls for a strategy for securing 5G wireless communications systems and infrastructure.
The request was issued by the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA), which advises the president on telecommunications and information policy issues and reports within the Department of Commerce.
The implementation plan will specify activities to achieve the strategy's goals based on four lines of effort, which are facilitating domestic rollout of 5G, assessing cyber security risks and identifying core security principles of 5G technologies, addressing risks to U.S. economic and national security associated with the roll out of 5G capabilities worldwide, and promoting responsible global development of secure 5G infrastructure, the NTIA said in the request for comment.
