ACM Workshop on Security in Software Defined Networks & Network Function Virtualization (SDN-NFV Security 2016)
New Orleans, LA
March 9-11, 2016
Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) are two emerging networking paradigms, which introduce significant granularity, visibility, flexibility and elasticity to networking, but at the same time bring forth new security challenges. The ACM International Workshop on Security in Software Defined Networks & Network Function Virtualization (SDN-NFV Security 2016) will take place in New Orleans, LA, USA, on March 11, 2016. The target audience will be university researchers, scientists, and industry professionals who need to become acquainted with new theories and technologies related to security challenges in SDN and NFV.
SDN-NFV Security 2016 will be held in conjunction with the 6th ACM Conference on Data and Application Security and Privacy (CODASPY 2016), which is jointly sponsored by ACM SIGSAC.
Two best papers presented at the workshop will be invited to present at the NFV World Congress (
Keynote speaker: Anita Nikolich, National Science Foundation (NSF)
Call for Technical Research Papers
Paper Submission Deadline: December 8, 2015 (Extended)
Notification of Acceptance: December 18, 2015
Camera Ready Submission Deadline: January 8, 2016
The key goal of this workshop is to foster active interactions among diverse researchers and practitioners, and generate added momentum towards research in finding viable solutions to the security challenges faced by two emerging networking paradigms, Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV).
We solicit unpublished research papers, both regular (6 pages max) and short (4 pages max) papers, that address the latest practices, experiences, and lessons learned on SDN and NFV security. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- SDN/NFV-enabled security architecture
- SDN/NFV-based automated network security
- SDN/NFV-based mitigation for attacks
- Authentication/confidentiality in SDN/NFV-based networks
- Proofs of security in SDN/NFV-based networks
- Logic flaws in SDN/NFV implementations
- Attacks/defense to SDN controllers, protocols, and APIs
- SDN-oriented security policy enforcement
- Trust management of SDN applications and controllers
- Development and deployment of NFV-based security functions
(virtual firewalls, virtual IDSs, virtual DDoS mitigation, etc.)
- Safe state migration in NFV
- Network Security as a Service
Regular papers for SDN-NFV Security 2016 should be up to 6 pages, excluding well-marked references and appendices, in double-column ACM format (as specified at Submissions for short papers should be no more than 4 pages.
Submission of papers is through the EasyChair conference system at need to have an account in the system or obtain one prior to submission.
