Leveraging from the virtualised 5G control plane, we introduce an offload-based approach where the incoming traffic is attracted to new weight-managed resources. Besides improving the control plane availability, our analytic model based on game theory enables an intelligent resource scaling according to the attacker’s payoff. To demonstrate the feasibility and the effectiveness of our approach we also present a testbed comprising of multiple simulated users connected at a real virtualised EPC based on the Open Air Interface platform. The results obtained from the testbed show an offloading level up to 60% on the attack target, when duplicating the attacked resource.
