A review of TST003 on VIM-OpenStack mapping will be provided. It will also highlight other NFV testing activity in open source projects like OPNFV, or other standards like IETF.

 

09:55

Security

Igor Faynberg | Chair, SEC(Security) WG | ETSI NFV ISG

Expert | CableLabs

 
 

 

This session outlines the challenges of the NFV Security and outlines the key matters that are unique to the NFV environment. Among these, an important case study is Lawful Interception, whose challenges are briefly introduced in the context of a more broad multi-layer access problem.

We emphasize the importance of securing the platform as the trust anchor and developing trust up toward the applications, through the attestation process. After that we briefly report on the standardization thrusts that harness the latest technological developments in security. We focus particularly on the solutions ETSI NFV Security effort that has been carried over the past three years, in close cooperation with ETSI Lawful Interception, ETSI Cyber Security, 3GPP SA3, and Trusted Computing Group.

Reliability Availability & Assurance REL

Stefan Arntzen | Vice Chair, REL(Reliability, Availability & Assurance) WG | ETSI NFV ISG

Architect | Huawei

 
 

 

Software Update Process: Minimizing Service Disruptions and Maintaining Service Availability and Continuity. The objective for this effort is to maintain service availability and continuity during the NFV software update process.

The ETSI NFV Reliability Working Group has described high level methods in [REL003] by which the update/upgrade process can be carried out without impacts on service availability. In addition, various scenarios are described by which NFVI software components can be updated without impacting existing customer traffic. The Reliability Working Group is currently engaged in expanding the scope of this work such that all aspects of the end-to-end update/upgrade process are examined; this is part of the Phase 3 Work Plan.

ETSI NGP NEXT GENERATION PROTOCOLS FORUM

 
 

 

 
 

 

 
 

 

Please note: this Forum is open to all delegates

 
 

 

Layer123 is delighted to host this first NGP Forum, which has been organised by NGP ISG leadership

 
 

 

The purpose of the NGP ISG is to review the future landscape of Internet Protocols and network architectures, analyze their applicability to future use cases, identify and document future requirements and trigger co-ordinated follow up activities.

The driving vision of ETSI NGP is a considerably more efficient and gradually evolving Internet that is far more attentive to service and traffic demands while enhancing efficiency and lowering the total cost of ownership for network operators. Technology requirements from different market segments, such as IoT, high and ultra-high definition video, and 5G networks and services, offer initial scenarios where the next generation of protocols should significantly simplify solutions.

Managing Digital Information in Complex Networking Environments

Bob Kahn | Chairman, CEO & President | CNRI

Recipient of Alan M. Turing award 2004 (jointly with Vint Cerf)

 
 

 

Modern applications have moved well beyond transport to embrace dynamic new types of activities such as collaboration, simulation and virtual reality.Typically, the choice of processing methodology is determined ahead of time with explicit knowledge of the kind of information to be transported. In the future, however, information of all kinds may be intermingled, not known ahead of time, and yet each kind may need to be processed differently.

The digital object architecture is an excellent candidate for enabling such new capabilities. In this talk, it is proposed that systems make use of digital objects with their unique persistent identifiers, known as handles, as architectural underpinnings for information management in such complex digital environments. The identifier/resolution component of the architecture makes use of handle records that contain state information about digital objects, which enables them to be accessed, processed and manifested, as appropriate. This state information could be augmented to provide desirable or even necessary additional network management options. The digital object architecture and its application to information management will be discussed in this presentation.

5G Network Architecture and the Future Mobile Internet

Dipankar Raychaudhuri | Distinguished Professor & Director, WINLAB | Rutgers University

Fellow | IEEE

 
 

 

This talk provides a discussion of one of the central design challenges associated with next-generation "5G" wireless systems – that of effectively converging 3GPP-based mobile networks with the global Internet. Although the trend towards "flat" IP-based architectures for cellular networks is well under way with LTE, significant architectural evolution (or revolution enabled by emerging technologies such as SDN) will be needed to achieve the goal of supporting the needs of mobile devices and applications as "first-class" services on the Internet.

Drawing from our experience with the ongoing NSF-sponsored "MobilityFirst" future Internet architecture project, we outline a "named-object" protocol solution based on the "GUID (Globally Unique Identifier) Service Layer" which enables a clean separation of naming and addressing, and provides intrinsic support for a wide variety of mobility services. The talk concludes with a brief outline of the MobilityFirst proof-of-concept prototype currently being deployed on the GENI meso-scale networking testbed.

 

11:30

Internet-scale Virtual Networking with Identifier-Locator Addressing (ILA)

Petr Lapukhov | Network Engineer | Facebook

 
 

 

In this talk we present Facebook's ongoing experience deploying the Identifier-Locator Addressing (ILA) framework: an IPv6-only model for implementing per-process, location-independent addressing based on concepts originally developed in ILNP. The major benefits include logical addressing of application containers decoupled from physical infrastructure and the ability to uniquely name any process in the network.

We present the motivation and concepts behind the ILA data and control planes and summarize our experience deploying it in the production environment, describing how we leveraged the recent development in Linux kernel such as eBPF and XDP.

 

12:00

The Social Internet of Things: Research Challenges and Future Directions

Giacomo Morabito | Associate Professor | University of Catania

 
 

 

The SIoT concept has been attracting increasing attention and several solutions have been proposed in a multitude of application scenarios such as vehicular communications, robot swarms, e-health, and entertainment. Indeed, by giving objects the possibility to establish social-like relationships several advantages can be achieved in many crucial contexts, like, service discovery, trust management, and heterogeneous platform integration and interaction.

Objectives of this session are to analyze the major opportunities arising from the integration of social networking concepts into the Internet of Things, present the major ongoing research activities in the field, and point out the most critical technical challenges as well as future directions.

Observations on Internet Evolution

Jari Arkko | Chair & General Area Director | IETF

Expert, Internet Architecture | Ericsson

 
 

 

This talk discusses ongoing evolution of Internet technology. While we cover briefly some areas of ongoing work at the IETF elswhere, the focus of the presentation is more on Internet evolution, why these changes are happening, why they are happening now, and what we can expect to happen in the future.

As part of that, we need to look at what changes are possible for various parties in the Internet, deployment incentives, state of deployment, market shares, how Internet solutions in general are evolving, what types of solutions are acceptable to different players, and the interplay of standardised and proprietary solutions.

"If It Ain't Broke, Why Fix It?" – and Why Now?

Kevin Smith | Senior Technology Strategist | Vodafone

 
 

 

TCP/IP has enabled a phenomenal growth in mobile Internet usage since its introduction with 2.5G networks. Its widespread interoperability has supported a plethora of services, from video to Web to gaming to VoIP, to utilise a common Internet stack at servers, networks and clients. However, this has come at the expense of a range of shims and encapsulations that support mobility, compression of large (often redundant) headers, and flow control suited to volatile radio conditions.

With the coming years expected to greatly increase the number of mobile connections, as well as greater volume demands (4K video) and latency constraints, these shims will come under increased strain. Therefore this presentation discusses why it is dilligent to research a new Internet stack that can provide scalability, performance and sustainability for the 5G era.

Applying Recent Advances in Machine Learning to Networking

Dave Meyer | Director, Advanced Network Technology Center | University of Oregon

Chief Scientist & Fellow | Brocade

 
 

 

Machine Learning is one of the hottest technologies around. Over the last year alone we have seen many new applications powered by Machine Learning, including voice recognition and generation, automatic captioning of images, self-driving cars, and beyond. However, we are just starting to realize the potential of Machine Learning in the network setting. In fact, since networks generate large amounts of data (which is just we need to train sophisticated models), Machine Learning for networking is set to take off.

This talk will survey recent advances in Machine Learning and the same technologies can be applied to various networking problems, including anomaly detection for security and performance applications, optimization in an NFV orchestration setting, and classification of network events.

Next-generation Secure Internet Architecture

Adrian Perrig | Professor, Network Security Group | ETH Zurich

Distinguished Fellow | CyLab, Carnegie Mellon University

 
 

 

The Internet has been successful beyond even the most optimistic expectations. However, much to our dismay, the current state of safety and availability of the Internet is far from commensurate given its importance.

Recent patches to improve Internet security and availability have been constrained by the current Internet architecture, business models, and legal aspects. Moreover, there are fundamental design decisions of the current Internet that inherently complicate secure operation. Given the diverse nature of constituents in today's Internet, another important challenge is how to scale authentication of entities (e.g., AS ownership for routing, name servers for DNS, or domains for TLS) to a global environment.

To address these issues, we propose SCION, a next-generation Internet architecture that is secure, available, and offers privacy by design; that provides incentives for a transition to the new architecture; and that considers economic and policy issues at the design stage.

LinkedIn's Approach to Programmable Data Center

Shawn Zandi | Principal Network Architect | LinkedIn

 
 

 

Highly available and tunable control planes are difficult to build and manage. Is there an alternate way to build a control plane for cloud-scale fabrics that will reduce operational expense (coming as close to zero touch provisioning as possible), while allowing the network to be tuned in near real time based on telemetry and application requirements?

LinkedIn is currently working on such a control plane, starting from the concept of layering different control plane functionality. This talk will provide an overview of the functional division, consider some tools which can be used to meet each, and the consider the resulting operational profile.

NFV Goes Mainstream: How Software-Based Networks Are Enabling IoT and Paving the Way for 5G

Angela Whiteford | VP Marketing & Product Management | Affirmed Networks

 
 

 

With many tier one operators globally making the transition to software-based networks, the challenge many operators now face is accelerating deployments so they can quickly begin receiving capex and opex relief, and shorten the time to market of new service offerings. During this execution phase, it is becoming critical for operators to truly understand the goals of their deployment and service offerings, as deployments can vary based on the application they are supporting. As part of this focus, many operators are finding success working with vendors that have real-world NFV/SDN deployment experience and understand the unique characteristics and requirements of each deployment profile (e.g., IoT, MVNO, Consumer, Enterprise, etc).

By leveraging this expertise, operators are seeing projects completed ahead of schedule and are delivering new services that represent powerful new future revenue streams. Some of the most successful deployments occurring today are being completed by operators who also understand that the move to NFV can also be accomplished with an eye toward new technologies, such as 5G, that are on the horizon and have different requirements than today's 4G networks. By deploying NFV-based architectures today that are currently "5G ready", these operators are getting the scalability and intelligence required by 5G, while accelerating revenue opportunities in the present.

NFV Is Not Cloud Computing: The Unique Challenges of Autoscaling VNFs for Optimal Cost, Performance, and SLA Adherence

Vin Spinelli | SVP, Global Sales & Marketing | RIFT.io

 
 

 

Autoscaling is more than just "spin up a new VM and load a new image". To properly scale a VNF or a network service, you also need to manage and scale the networking, as well as manage life cycle–related events of the VNF/network service. All these must be tied into NFV management and orchestration. There are certainly lessons to be learned from Web-based companies and enterprises that have re-architected data centers with open source software, white box servers and switches, and cloud management software.

However, unlike enterprises and Web-based companies, CommSPs are bound by more stringent governmental regulations and service level agreements (SLAs). Join this session to learn best practices for autoscaling VNFs and network service, using Intel Enhanced Platform Awareness Attributes for optimal infrastructure utilization and maintaining SLAs.

PANEL DISCUSSION – Telco Cloud's Role on the Path to 5G

 
 

 

With adoption of NFV maturing and the industry eye being cast towards 5G along with the opportunities and challenges that it brings, some CommSPs are now looking to telco cloud as the basis by which they can take advantage of the optimized and agile network deployments that have been transforming and creating a service-led telco strategy. They recognize that enterprise cloud adoption is accelerating. However, their new service offerings and levels of cloud maturity are lagging the enterprise. There is a lack of a service creation culture and a reliance on outsourced solutions. They see that telco cloud service offerings must evolve faster than enterprise in order to keep customers in sight.

Join us for a panel discussion where we will delve into this challenge, explore the ideal end state of a service-led telco strategy, and debate the key differentiators that can set a CommSP apart from its competition.

Beyond Threat Management: Security requirements for virtualized workloads in SDN deployments

Srini Addepalli | Sr. Principal Engineer | Intel

 
 

 

Virtualized workloads and infrastructure in SDN deployments have new security requirements in addition to threat management. These new requirements are mainly driven by:
• Deployment of virtualized workloads in 3rd party infrastructure
• Co-locating of virtualized workloads with other tenants
• Auto-scale out of virtualized workloads
• Explosion of micro-services

In this talk we will refer to the mix of new requirements and opportunities for security in SDN deployments. We will discuss in detail the top security requirements for virtualized workloads and infrastructure in SDN deployments such as:
• Maintain confidentiality and integrity of workloads
• Keep the keys secure
• Encrypt everything (east-west & north-south traffic)
• Secure compute and data (isolation of workloads
• Monitor traffic for security analysis
• Insert security functions and policies with agility (Service function chaining)
• Minimize impact on performance
