The iCORE Information Security Lab (iCIS) is hosting a Group Talk.

Raushan Dilruba, MSc candidate and ISPIA and iCIS member, will be presenting.

Abstract: Software Defined Networking (SDN) is one of the key networking technologies with application to data centers and cloud, as well as growing application in networking. SDN uses isolation of data planes and control planes to offer more effective control of networks. Security and reliability of communication between controllers and network switches are essential in SDN architecture. We propose a post-quantum secure and reliable solution to securing the OpenFlow channel between SDN controller and the OpenFlow switch, using Shamir Secret Sharing. Our solution delivers (i) Post-Quantum security, (ii) Reliable Message Delivery, and has (iii) Low communication delay, under the defined system and adversarial model.
