What it takes to secure programmable networks

Speaker:  Zeeshan Pervez – Paisley, United Kingdom
Topic(s):  Networks and Communications


In this lecture, I will present research and technical challenges of securing programmable networks i.e., software-defined networks. Dividing a network into control, data, and application plans leverage infrastructure provider to have better management and provisioning control over the entire network. However, this ease of control has opened up significant research and technical challenges especially in developing cyber resilience. This lecture will explain the limitations of existing data and network security policies, procedures, and frameworks in combating modern-day cyberattacks. The lecture will present the advancements in network traffic analysis and deep neural networks to safeguard the underlying networking infrastructure. It will shed light on how the programmability of networks can significantly benefit from these developments, within the context of cyber resilience.
