The Strategy is focused on four lines of effort: (1) Facilitating domestic 5G rollout; (2) assessing the cybersecurity risks to and identifying core security principles of 5G capabilities and infrastructure; (3) addressing risks to United States economic and national security during development and deployment of 5G infrastructure worldwide; and (4) promoting responsible global development and deployment of secure and reliable 5G infrastructure. In accordance with both the Act and the Strategy, the National Security and National Economic Councils are developing an Implementation Plan, in consultation with relevant departments and agencies, to execute the actions identified to secure 5G infrastructure and development. The Implementation Plan will follow the four lines of effort identified in the Strategy, laying out specific activities to achieve the goals of the Strategy. Request for Comment: Through this Request for Comments, NTIA is seeking public input to inform the development of the Implementation Plan. NTIA is looking for information as to how the U.S. Government can best facilitate the accelerated development and rollout of 5G infrastructure in the United States and with our international partners, and lay the groundwork for innovation beyond 5G.

    Request for Comment: Through this Request for Comments, NTIA is 
seeking public input to inform the development of the Implementation 
Plan. NTIA is looking for information as to how the U.S. Government can

Specifically, NTIA is seeking feedback on the following questions, 
organized by the four lines of effort laid out by the Strategy.

Questions

    Line of Effort One: Facilitate Domestic 5G Rollout.

research, development, testing, and evaluation of new technologies and 
architectures?
    (3) What steps can the U.S. Government take to further motivate the 
domestic-based 5G commercial ecosystem to increase 5G research, 
development, and testing?
    (4) What areas of research and development should the U.S. 
Government prioritize to achieve and maintain U.S. leadership in 5G? 
How can the U.S. Government create an environment that encourages 
private sector investment in 5G technologies and beyond? If possible, 
identify specific goals that the U.S. Government should pursue as part 
of its research, development, and testing strategy.
    Line of Effort Two: Assess Risks to and Identify Core Security 
Principles of 5G Infrastructure.

development of core security principles for 5G infrastructure?
    (2) What factors should the U.S. Government consider when 
evaluating the trustworthiness or potential security gaps in U.S. 5G 
infrastructure, including the 5G infrastructure supply chain? What are 
the gaps?
    (3) What constitutes a useful and verifiable security control 
regime? What role should security requirements play, and what 
mechanisms can be used to ensure these security requirements are 
adopted?
    (4) Are there stakeholder-driven approaches that the U.S. 
Government should consider to promote adoption of policies, 
requirements, guidelines, and procurement strategies necessary to 
establish secure, effective, and reliable 5G infrastructure?
    (5) Is there a need for incentives to address security gaps in 5G 
infrastructure? If so, what types of incentives should the U.S. 
Government consider in addressing these gaps? Are there incentive 
models that have proven successful that could be applied to 5G 
infrastructure security?
    Line of Effort Three: Address Risks to U.S. Economic and National 
Security during Development and Deployment of 5G Infrastructure 
Worldwide.
    (1) What opportunities does the deployment of 5G networks worldwide 
create for U.S. companies?
    (2) How can the U.S. Government best address the economic and 
national security risks presented by the use of 5G worldwide?
    (3) How should the U.S. Government best promote 5G vendor diversity 
and foster market competition?
    (4) What incentives and other policy options may best close or 
narrow any security gaps and ensure the economic viability of the 
United States domestic industrial base, including research and 
development in critical technologies and workforce development in 5G 
and beyond?
    Line of Effort Four: Promote Responsible Global Development and 
Deployment of 5G.
    (1) How can the U.S. Government best lead the responsible 
international development and deployment of 5G technology and promote 
the availability of secure and reliable equipment and services in the 
market?

private sector participation in standards development for 5G 
technologies?
    (3) What tools or approaches could be used to mitigate risk from 
other countries' 5G infrastructure? How should the U.S. Government 
measure success in this activity?
    (4) Are there market or other incentives the U.S. Government should 
promote or foster to encourage international cooperation around secure 
and trusted 5G infrastructure deployment?
    (5) Both the Department of Commerce and the Federal Communications 
Commission (FCC) have rulemakings underway to address the security of 
the telecommunications infrastructure supply chain.\4\ Are there other 
models that identify and manage risks that might be valuable to
