TOPIC:

Security Implications of Software Defined Networking and Network Function Virtualisation

Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualisation (NFV) will revolutionise IT networking over the next decade, not just in the data centre, but in corporate networks, and in the networks of backbone providers. What are the implications for security? Does it help, or is it a big risk? This session will briefly introduce SDN and NFV, and why these technologies are important, then discuss the pros and cons of SDN & NFV from a security perspective.
