3rd International Workshop on Cyber-Security Threats, Trust and Privacy Management in Software-defined and Virtualized Infrastructures (SecSoft)
Co-hosted at 7th IEEE International Conference on Network Softwarization (NetSoft2021) that will be held from June 28 to July 2, 2021 in Tokyo, Japan. IEEE NetSoft has been created as a flagship conference aiming at addressing “Softwarization” of networks and systemic trends concerning the convergence of Cloud Computing, Software-Defined Networking (SDN), and Network Function Virtualization (NFV).
The main purpose of the SecSoft workshop is to integrate the “Security, Safety, Trust and Privacy support in virtualized environments” conference topic. Beyond security mechanisms at the hypervisor or domain level, the softwarization of legacy security appliances, and federation schemes between multiple domains, this Workshop will look ahead to more dynamic, agile, and autonomic forms of detection and reaction of advanced threats, including the persistence ones. The specific focus will be on secure and trustworthy digital services, including pure virtual services as well as cyber-physical systems. The objective is to stimulate a constructive discussion on overall frameworks and specific aspects that are necessary to build wide situational awareness and to timely counter cyber-attacks: pervasive monitoring and deep inspection, cross-correlation in time and space dimensions and detection, automated control and management of complex orchestratable systems, forensics and legal investigation, trustworthiness and privacy.
The SecSoft workshop is a joint initiative from EU Cyber-Security projects: ASTRID, CYBER-TRUST, GUARD, SIMARGL, DATAVAULTS, RAINBOW and PALANTIR.
