Security of Software-Defined Infrastrucure

(logo)

Overview

Software-defined infrastructure (SDI) is a paradigm where the configuration and management of the infrastructure are controlled through software with limited (or no) manual intervention. It generalizes the concept of software-defined networking (SDN) to include application requirements from the infrastructure. Security is critical for SDI given the automated nature of its management and the numerous vulnerabilities introduced by many implementations. In this project, we focus on understanding the full spectrum of security and fault-tolerance requirements in SDI and propose practical solutions.
