SDN Security 2018 academic masterclass 12 December 2018 @ 2:00 pm
This webinar will introduce the state of SDN Security in 2018 based on research undertaken at the Centre for Secure Information Technologies (CSIT), Queen’s University Belfast. With SDN now 10 years old, what is the true level of security? We’ll consider this question in the context of current deployments and discuss future advances with a tour of SDNFV security with respect to the Internet of Things, blockchain technologies and machine learning.
