The interconnection of many communicating objects means a huge amount of data to be moved from one point to another and data to be stored in some devices. Several questions arise about cybersecurity solutions and data treated in the wireless communication networks. One crucial aspect to be considered is who makes the connection between applications, networks, and services, and how the devices/objects based on different technologies can safely operate in the same environment. With the complex plethora of communication technologies in 6G, will it be possible to envisage global governance and security, or will it be necessary to figure out a local governance? To address these questions, a legal perspective needs to be considered, with experts in different domains, technical and legal, able to consider at the same time technical constraints and ethical issues, in the perspective of realizing “responsible” by design approaches.
