The IEEE International Workshop on Security in Virtualized Networks (Sec-VirtNet 2016) will be held on June 10, 2016 in Seoul Korea with the 2nd IEEE International Conference on Network Softwarization (NetSoft 2016, sites.ieee.org/netsoft). Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) technologies fundamentally change the network architecture as well as the way networks (e.g., mobile or transport networks) will be deployed and operated. This new generation of virtualized and multi-tenant networks comes with various promises (e.g., CAPEX and OPEX optimization) but also raises several new security challenges, in particular because network functions will no longer be embedded and thus “protected” within network equipments. Besides, network virtualization also brings various opportunities for security such as the possibility to offer software-based security appliances or Security as a Service.
The Sec-VirtNet 2016 workshop focuses on novel research topics dealing with security in these virtualized networks. Submitted papers should provide theoretical or practical approaches to identify and address the critical security issues of such virtualized networks or, conversely, to exploit these promising virtualization and SDN technologies in order to offer innovative security services.
