ACM International Workshop on
Security in Software Defined Networks & Network Function Virtualization (SDN-NFV Security 2016)

The key goal of this workshop is to foster active interactions among diverse researchers and practitioners, and generate added momentum towards research in finding viable solutions to the security challenges faced by two emerging networking paradigms, Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) .

We solicit unpublished research papers, both regular (6 pages max) and short (4 pages max) papers, that address the latest practices, experiences, and lessons learned on SDN and NFV security. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • SDN/NFV-enabled security architecture
  • SDN/NFV-based automated network security
  • SDN/NFV-based mitigation for attacks
  • Authentication/confidentiality in SDN/NFV-based networks
  • Proofs of security in SDN/NFV-based networks
  • Logic flaws in SDN/NFV implementations
  • Attacks/defense to SDN controllers, protocols, and APIs
  • SDN-oriented security policy enforcement
  • Trust management of SDN applications and controllers
  • Development and deployment of NFV-based security functions (virtual firewalls, virtual IDSs, virtual DDoS mitigation, etc.)
  • Safe state migration in NFV
  • Network Security as a Service

Proposed Workshop Structure
Keynote Speech and a Panel
Presentations 20 minutes each – we expect about 10 full/short papers.
