It is ITU-T’s first standard project in the field of unidentified threat detection and prevention. The first ITU standard project for unidentified network threat detection and defense will become one of the core foundations for the network and telecommunications field to deal with advanced network threats and attacks. More importantly, it has laid the foundation for the unidentified threat defense of other related standard researches, such as the spam defense technology based on dynamic behavior detection, unidentified threats detection and defense in 5G end-to-end telecommunications networks as well as in the IoT scenario. ITU is highly concerned with the field of Advanced Persistent Threat. Since August 2018, ITU has been involved in two seminars on Advanced Persistent Threat, inviting the industry experts to explore defense and detection solutions to advanced threats and attacks. In January 2019, ITU conducted another in-depth study on the applications and risks of artificial intelligence and machine learning in the field of security. At ITU seminars, Tian Tian, a senior engineer of ZTE Corporation introduced ZTE's long-term achievements in the APT detection and analysis field. Its efficient, intelligent and accurate detection and defense solutions are highly recognized by ITU, laying the foundation for the first ITU standard project for unidentified network threat detection and defense. With rich experience in the field of network security, ZTE will continue to share research and application practices with the industry in the future and be devoted to network and information security governance and guarantee.
