Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC) has become inevitable in future communication networks due to its pivotal role in latency critical and distributed services. New emerging services seek to further push the concept of MEC to user environments for localized, private and even quicker processing of information. Micro MEC (µMEC) fulfills such needs of emerging services. In this article, we provide an overview of the security landscape of the µMEC philosophy and technologies. Security challenges, potential solutions for those challenges are discussed and the missing gaps are highlighted to stir further research in this direction.
