With the great success and development of 5G & beyond systems and
other emerging concepts (e.g. 6G) a continued effort toward rich
ubiquitous communication infrastructure, promising wide range of
high-quality services is desired. It is envisioned that communication
in emerging networks will offer significantly greater data bandwidth
and almost infinite capability of networking resulting in unfaltering
user experiences for, among others: virtual/augmented reality, massive
content streaming, telepresence, user-centric computing, crowded area
services, smart personal networks, Internet of Things (IoT), smart
buildings and smart cities.  The communication in 5G networks and
beyond is currently in the center of attention of industry, academia,
and government worldwide.

Emerging network concepts drive many new requirements for different 
network capabilities. As future networks aim at utilizing many promising
 network technologies, such as Software Defined Networking (SDN), 
Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), Information Centric Network 
(ICN), Network Slicing or Cloud Computing and supporting a huge number 
of connected devices integrating above mentioned advanced technologies 
and innovating new techniques will surely bring tremendous challenges 
for security, privacy and trust. Therefore, secure network 
architectures, mechanisms, and protocols are required as the basis for 
emerging networks to address these issues and follow security-by-design 
approach. Finally, since in current and future networks even more user 
data and network traffic will be transmitted, big data security 
solutions should be considered in order to address the magnitude of the 
data volume and ensure data security and privacy.    

From this perspective, the ENS 2024 workshop aims at collecting the
most relevant ongoing research efforts in emerging network security
field. It also serves as a forum for 5G & beyond projects in order
to disseminate their security-related results and boost cooperation,
also foster development of the 5G and beyond Security Community made
of 5G security experts and practitioners who pro-actively discuss and
share information to collectively progress and align on the
field. Last but not least it also aims to bridge 5G & Beyond
community with other communities (e.g. AI) that are key to support
full attainment of 5G & Beyond but also 6G promises and so for
those technologies to release their full potential.

The ENS workshop builds upon three successful editions of the 5G-NS 
(5G Networks Security) workshop organized previously in co-location with
 the ARES conference since 2018.    Topics of interest for current and emerging networks (5G & Beyond, 6G, ...), but are not limited to:

 - Security Architecture and Technologies 
 - Security Management and its automation 
 - Attack & Threat Detection 
 - DDoS Detection & Mitigation 
 - Security Frameworks for Various Applications & Scenarios
