Call For Papers

The workshop will be in conjunction with the IEEE Conference on Network Function Virtualization and Software Defined Networks (IEEE NFV-SDN) that will be held on 6-8 November 2017 at Berlin, Germany.


Network Function Virtualization (NFV) and Software Defined Network (SDN) technologies are radically changing telecommunication networks. NFV virtualizes network services to reduce the dependency on underlying hardware which aids resource management, provides faster service enablement and lowers OPEX and CAPEX. SDN separates the control functions from the underlying physical network by decoupling the control and data planes thereby offering improved programmability, ease of deployment, management, reduced costs, better scalability, availability, flexibility and fine‐grain control of traffic. But how does this widespread adoption of NVF‐SDN impact on network security, especially with an increased attack surface implied by virtualization? In this workshop, we invite high‐quality submissions in the areas of NFV and SDN security and related areas. Submitted papers should highlight methods and approaches that can be used to analyse the security risks, requirements and techniques related to NFV and SDN and to provide methods and approaches to assure security and mitigate threats in NFV and SDN.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following areas:

Security, reliability and privacy through SDN and NFV in 5G networks
Management and orchestration of NFV and SDN elements for security
Secure design of NFV and SDN solutions, security enablers
Security threats and vulnerabilities introduced by NFV and SDN technologies
Threat detection and mitigation through SDN and NFV
Security policy specification and management in SDN and NFV systems
Security related monitoring and analytics in SDN and NFV solutions
5G security architecture, trust and confidence
Authentication, authorization and Accounting in SDN
Security of applying SDN to wireless and mobile network
Security of applying NFV and SDN to IoT
Security of applying NFV and SDN to cloud computing
Security of SDN API
Risk and compliance issues in SDN
Securing SDN infrastructure
Security architecture for SDN
Security standard of SDN
Security of SDN data plane
Security of SDN control plane
Security of SDN application plane
Security of Routing in SDN
Security of network slicing
Security as a service for SDN
