1st International Workshop on Security in NFV-SDN (SNS2016)

Monday, 7 November, 2016

As NFV and SDN are the most significant new networking paradigms for 5G networks, their security implications are of paramount importance. While adoption of these network paradigms may raise security challenges, these new techniques may also be employed to create new, powerful security solutions.

This is the focus of the 1st International Workshop on security in NFV-SDN (SNS2016) taking place in Palo Alto, California, on 7 November 2016 under the umbrella of IEEE NFV-SDN.

The workshop features two keynotes and six accepted papers. The keynotes focus on:

  • Insights into 5G security research and standardisation activities, discussing the 5G security challenges and opportunities. It outlines what Nokia Bell Labs Security Research, which is part of many of these activities important for building the secure communication networks of the future. Peter Schneider, Nokia Bell Labs Security Research.
  • Putting into perspective the emerging and promising Software Defined Security, covering various security aspects from protection towards remediation as well as other research directions in security impacting the development and deployment of SDN/NFV. Dotaro Emmanuel, Thales Secure Communications & Information Systems.
