Defending Against New-Flow Attack in SDN-Based Internet of Things

Defending Against New-Flow Attack in SDN-Based Internet of Things

In this paper, the authors examine the new-flow attack, which can disable the SDN-based IoT by exhausting the switches or the controller. The authors propose a smart security mechanism (SSM) which uses a dynamic access control method that can mitigate the attack by intercepting the attack flows at their access switch.

A Network Operating System for becoming a Differentiator

A Network Operating System for Becoming a "Differentiator"

Continuing our discussion of future telecommunications infrastructures becoming the "nervous system" of the Digital Society and Economy, we now look at network operating systems. Robust yet fragile, network operating systems will be key in embedding the features of the transformative nervous system of the Digital Society and Economy.
