Currently 5G communication networks are envisioned to offer in a near future a wide range of high-quality services and unfaltering user experiences. In order to achieve this, several issues including security, privacy, and trust aspects need to be solved so that the 5G networks can be widely welcomed and accepted. Considering above, in this paper, we take a step towards these requirements by proposing a dedicated SDN-based integrated security framework for the Internet of Radio Light (IoRL) system that is following 5G architecture design. In particular, we present how TCP SYN-based scanning activities and DHCP-related network threats like Denial of Service (DoS), traffic eavesdropping, etc. can be detected and mitigated using such an approach. Enclosed experimental results prove that the proposed security framework is effective and efficient and thus can be considered as a promising defensive solution.
