Overview

Security for Software Defined Networks (Networking Talks) provides you with practical advice and principles of security for and by Software Defined Networks.

Description

Security for Software Defined Networks (Networking Talks) introduces security concepts that can be applied to SDN. The course starts with an overview of Software Defined Networking, examining what the architecture provides and detailing the various deployment models. Natalie Timms, CCIE Security, then provides an understanding of SDN and security, outlining how typical security considerations change when applied to an SDN. The course then dives a little deeper, detailing security for and by Software Defined Networks.

Throughout this Networking Talk you will be introduced to concepts such as controller specific hardening, device hardening, network services, application and APIs, management and provisioning, communication channels, agent security services, and agent threat management.

Major sections are as follows:

Lesson 1—SDN Overview

Lesson 2—SDN and Security

Lesson 3—Security for the SDN

Lesson 4—Security by the SDN

Lesson 5—Summary

About the Instructor

Natalie Timms is a former program manager with the CCIE certification team at Cisco, managing exam curriculums and content for the CCIE Security track before becoming an independent consultant.

Natalie has been involved with computer networking for more than 20 years, much of which was spent with Cisco. Natalie has contributed at the IETF standards level and has written many technical papers and is also a Cisco Press author and U.S. patent holder.

Natalie has also been a technical instructor in the Asia Pac region for Wellfleet Communications/Bay Networks and a multiple Cisco Live Distinguished Speaker award winner.

Natalie has a CCIE Security Certification and has a BSc in Computer Science and Statistics from Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia.

Skill Level

  • Intermediate

What You Will Learn

  • How Software-Defined Network (SDN) transitions security from being an overlay service to a core component of the network
  • How SDN must provide secure boundaries around services and access
  • How SDN agents and controllers can be provisioned to be a perimeter to an individual device or service
  • How SDN can provision and enforce a security strategy with the success of this strategy depending on how well the SDN itself is protected

Who Should Take This Course

The target audiences for this video course are those considering SDN deployment, or anyone interested in a starting point for more research on securing an SDN.

The Primary audience includes:

  • Security Professionals
  • Network Architects
  • Business leaders considering SDN

Course Requirements

  • Knowledge of common security attack methodologies
  • Familiarity with security protection methods

Table of Contents

Lesson 1—SDN Overview

In this lesson, we will explore how a Software Defined Network (SDN) transitions security from being an overlay service to a core component of the network. We will take a look at the SDN architecture and deployment models.

Lesson 2—SDN and Security

In this lesson we will take a look at how SDN must provide secure boundaries around services and access. We will compare typical DoS and SDN DoS and also examine the differences between security by the SDN and security for the SDN.

Lesson 3—Security for the SDN

This lesson will explore how SDN agents and controllers can be provisioned to be a perimeter to an individual device or service. To understand this more fully we will take a look at security by the SDN in action.

Lesson 4—Security by the SDN

In this lesson we will see how SDN can provision and enforce a security strategy with the success of this strategy depending on how well the SDN itself is protected. We will explore controller specific hardening, Device Hardening for Agents and Controllers, Network Service security, and more.

Lesson 5—Summary

In this summary lesson we will discuss how SDN is an opportunity to make security the focal point of a network solution rather than an overlay.
