On 22/08/2017 Philippe Massonet presented the paper "Security in Lightweight Network Function Virtualisation for Federated Cloud and IoT" at FICloud 2017 (The IEEE 5th International Conference on Future Internet of Things and Cloud) in Prague, Czech Republic. The paper describes how the BEACON security architecture for federated cloud networking could be extended to federate with sensor networks. The paper proposes securing sensor networks at the edge using Network Function Virtualisation and Service Function Chaining. A key conclusion drawn from discussions at the conference is that there is a need for lightweight NFV/SFC. NFV/SFC solutions for clouds assume the availability of cloud resources to scale and adapt to processing demand. Sensor and actuator networks with limited processing and storage resources need lightweight NFV/SFC solutions.
