5G-ENSURE & CHARISMA @2nd International Workshop on Security in NFV-SDN (SNS 2017)

3 July 2017 @ 9:00 - 17:00 CEST

The 2nd edition of the International Workshop on Security in NFV-SDN (SNS2017) takes place on 3 July in conjunction with the 3rd IEEE Conference on Network Softwarisation (IEEE NetSoft 2017), 3-7 July at the School of Engineering and Architecture, University of Bologna, Italy.

Network Function Virtualisation (NFV) and Software Defined Network (SDN) technologies are radically changing telecommunication networks. NFV virtualises network services to reduce the dependency on underlying hardware which aids resource management, provides faster service enablement and lowers OPEX and CAPEX. SDN separates the control functions from the underlying physical network by decoupling the control and data planes thereby offering improved programmability, ease of deployment, management, reduced costs, better scalability, availability, flexibility and fine‐grain control of traffic. But how does this widespread adoption of NVF‐SDN impact on network security, especially with an increased attack surface implied by virtualisation?

This workshop invites high‐quality submissions in the areas of NFV and SDN security and related areas. Submitted papers should highlight methods and approaches that can be used to analyse the security risks, requirements and techniques related to NFV and SDN and to provide methods and approaches to assure security and mitigate threats in NFV and SDN.

The workshop is co-chaired by 5G-ENSURE and CHARISMA projects.

Topics of interest (not limited to)
-Security threats and vulnerabilities introduced by NFV and SDN technologies
-Management and orchestration of NFV and SDN elements for security
-Security, reliability and privacy through SDN and NFV in 5G networks
-Threat detection and mitigation through SDN and NFV
-Security policy specification and management in SDN and NFV systems
