|2:00 – 2:30||Welcome & Introduction by Ivan Pepelnjak
Microsegmentation: a new security paradigm
Now imagine you could replace that 20th century paradigm with nimble filters in front of every host or virtual machine in your data center, and maybe even get rid of VLANs. Welcome to the wonderful new world of microsegmentation (at least according to vendor promises).
They keynote will take a cautious approach to this novel idea, start with the human- and process challenges microsegmentation brings, explain its benefits and shortcomings, and mention a few potential use cases.
|2:30 – 3:30||Mitja Robas, Senior IT Architect at NIL
Implementing NSX – real-life journey from idea to practice
The presentation will discuss lessons learned and path along with obstacles of getting from an idea to a working VMware NSX SDN/NFV solution based on a real-life example with tools and components used along that journey.

Microsegmentation with SDN – A Practical Approach
Threats evolve and focus on lateral movement, so it’s time to evolve the security concepts as well. Microsegmentation gives you the possibility to build a network of honeycombs for your datacenter infrastructure and to control east-west traffic.
|4:15 – 4:45||
Thomas Wacker, Director Secure Network Connectivity at UBS AG
Reducing Complexity of Enterprise Data Center Networks
This talk will explore the drivers and opportunities behind the latest major data center network rebuild at UBS, lay out the high-level architecture and focus on automation both of the build and operations of the new network. It will show how far we’ve taken (micro-) segmentation, and what the next steps will be, and how this all changes how we think of networks.
|5:15 – 6:00||Christof Jungo, Security Architect, SecIntel GmbH (formerly at Swisscom AG)
Securing the SDN Network
Internet Service Providers (ISP) deploy and operate an array of diverse and fast changing technologies to provide cutting edge solutions to their private and business customers. Thereby they rely on a complex chain of suppliers for hardware and software. Typically the choice of security supplier is limited, for example for high performance networking using virtualization.
The security and integrity of software defined networks is a concern with the dependence on third party components for critical functionality. While we cannot prevent the potential compromise of components in the supply chain, we can test the integrity and functionality of devices upon delivery or in operation.
In Swisscoms cloud initiative, security is a major topic. Leveraging SDN technologies for security beyond micro segmentation to protect the cloud infrastructure under the premise of high speed networking and virtualization is quite a challenge. They create a framework to systematically test the speed, integrity and security of critical infrastructure components. The purpose of this setup is the systematic and continuous testing of the integrity of components critical to the business.
In this talk I present results (by June 2015) of the initiatives and challenges in security and integrity of SDN with focus cloud services and critical infrastructure and also speak about joint developments with different vendors.
