Securing Heterogeneous SDN-based Cloud Environments

Robert Cannistra | Distinguished Professional Lecturer of Computer Science and Information Technology | Marist College

 

 

Brittany Ross, James Crowley, Marcos Barbieri | Marist College

 
 

 

With the inception of SDN and NFV, we have significantly increased the number of heterogeneous networks installed in cloud environments. While this allows the provider to use the best-in-class, or even the lowest cost hardware alternative, security attacks, threats, and vulnerabilities are increasing daily.

When an attacker is unable to use reconnaissance tools to determine what resources or vulnerabilities exist on the network then the attack and potential threat is mitigated before it even begins. We accomplish this using a heterogeneous SDN with NFV replying on automation, programmability and intelligence thus providing elasticity of the infrastructure.

Honeypots for Cloud Providers

Matthew Johnson | Professional Lecturer of Computer Science and Information Technology | Marist College

 

 

Vallie Joseph, Piradon Liengtiraphan, Daniel Jast | Marist College

 
 

 

While traditional and even emergent firewalls serve to protect network and application resources, the primary goal is to have true anonymity and security across the network NFV appliances deployed as VNFs can be risky, unless they are deployed correctly. In the world of continuous, emerging threats, we approach this problem by first creating a honeypot that would fingerprint as the detected resource. The data collected from the honeypot is then analyzed by an open source analytics software code named "Longtail" to generate information that serve to represent the general trend of attacks toward the secured resource.

In this presentation, we will present the what, how, why and when in reference to provisioning a honeypot within a cloud provider in order to fingerprint a real secured resource.

PANEL DEBATE – What steps is the industry taking to harmonise competing Orchestration visions?

 
 

 

What are the prospects for resolution towards a set of industry-standard Orchestration tools? What can operators use to maximise competitiveness today, while minimising the risks they perceive of proprietary lock-in?

 
 

 

• What are the industry standards around orchestration? And which bodies are involved? OSSii, ETSI, TM Forum, MEF, etc?
• What is the role of open source in all this? Relevant or not? OPNFV? OPEN-O? Open Source MANO? And maybe ECOMP?
• Does NFV change the picture around Orchestration?
• What about the advent of Cloud? Is there a shift? Are operators charting new Orchestration strategies?

ETSI MEC MOBILE EDGE COMPUTING FORUM

 
 

 

 
 

 

Layer123 is delighted to host this first MEC Forum, which has been organised by ETSI MEC ISG and WG leadership

 
 

 

The work of the MEC initiative aims to unite the telco and IT-cloud worlds, providing IT and cloud-computing capabilities within the RAN (Radio Access Network). The ISG MEC will specify the elements that are required to enable applications to be hosted in a multi-vendor Mobile-edge Computing environment.

The scope of work on MEC will be highly focused and complement the work on NFV. MEC will enable applications and services (Layer 4 and above) to be hosted 'on top' of the mobile network elements, i.e. above the network layer. These applications and services can benefit from being in close proximity to the customer and from receiving local radio-network contextual information.
