3rd IEEE/IFIP International Workshop on
Security for Emerging Distributed Network Technologies (DISSECT)

In conjunction with IEEE/IFIP
International Symposium on Integrated Network Management (IM 2017)

Lisbon, Portugal, 8 or 12 MAY 2017

* Paper Registration: December 15th, 2016
* Paper Submission: December 19th, 2016

Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an extended
version to a Special Issue of the International Journal on Network
Management ( ***

Emerging open networking technologies and paradigms, such as
Software-Defined Networking, Network Function Virtualization, and
Programmable Networks, are reshaping the way networks are
designed,deployed, and managed. The benefits are manifold, including
an unprecedented flexibility for network operation and management, and
a favorable environment for delivering innovative network applications
and services. However, this paradigm shift brings a multitude of
security challenges that have to be addressed in order to provide
secure, trustworthy, and privacy-preserving data communication and
network services. Addressing these challenges may require not only
revisiting existing solutions (e.g., for intrusion detection, privacy
preserving, and resilience against attacks), but also designing novel
security and resilience schemes tailored to the specific design of
open networking technologies and infrastructures.

DISSECT 2017 will put focus on security issues and challenges arising
with the emergence of novel networking technologies and paradigms,
towards a secure and integrated management in the cloud and 5G era.
The workshop will shed light on new challenges and present current
research on the various security aspects of next-generation networking
technologies and service management frameworks.

DISSECT will offer a venue for bringing together students,
researchers, and professionals from academia and industry sharing
common interest on security challenges related to the design and
management of the distributed networks and infrastructures. DISSECT is
intended to (1) discussing these challenges as well as future trends
on security management, (2) present and discuss work-in-progress
security-related research on cutting-edge technologies, and (3)
strengthening collaboration and research ties among peers.

Topics of Interest:

In this workshop, the research community from industry and academia
will be invited to contribute with manuscripts describing novel,
work-in-progress research on the design of solutions to relevant
security issues on a wide variety of next generation networking
technologies. The topics of interest of the workshop include, but are
not limited to

- Secure and resilient design and deployment of open networking
- Privacy-preserving solutions
- Security models and threats
- Security and privacy properties and policies
- Verification and enforcement of security properties
- Trust and identity management
- NFV- based security functions and services
- Security of software-defined infrastructures, protocols and
- Threat modeling
- Security and availability management
- Security for Internet of Things
- Intrusion detection, tolerance, and prevention
- Network forensics and auditing
- Detection and resilience against large-scale distributed attacks
- Security of programmable components
- Security-related business and legal aspects
- Security challenges and trends for open networking technologies
- Secure programmable data plane
