    "description": "<p>The 5G network solutions currently standardised and deployed do not yet enable the full potential of pervasive networking and computing envisioned in 5G initial visions: network services and slices with different QoS profiles do not span multiple operators; security, trust and automation is limited. The evolution of 5G towards a truly production-level stage needs to heavily rely on automated end-to-end network operations, use of distributed Artificial Intelligence (AI) for cognitive network orchestration and management and minimal manual interventions (zero-touch automation). All these elements are key to implement highly pervasive network infrastructures. Moreover, Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLT) can be adopted to implement distributed security and trust<br>\nthrough Smart Contracts among multiple non-trusted parties. In this paper, we propose an initial concept of a zero-touch<br>\nsecurity and trust architecture for ubiquitous computing and connectivity in 5G networks. Our architecture aims at crossdomain<br>\nsecurity &amp; trust orchestration mechanisms by coupling DLTs with AI-driven operations and service lifecycle automation in multi-tenant and multi-stakeholder environments. Three representative use cases are identified through which we will<br>\nvalidate the work which will be validated in the test facilities at 5GBarcelona and 5TONIC/Madrid.</p>",
