    Abstract: As the demand for delivery of new services grows in today's hyper-connected world, it is becoming difficult for the network to keep up with the pace at which these demands need to be met. At the core of the problem are devices that are built using fixed-function forwarding plane. Scaling or adding new features to these devices is a long, expensive and time-consuming process, one that does not keep pace with the speed of this digital transformation. Software-Defined Networking (SDN) has opened up the control plane of the network but the forwarding plane is still closed and fixed. With the advent of P4 and programmable Ethernet switch silicon, it is now possible to create a network with the features you want. This brings the agility and speed of software to the network. This presentation will give an overview of P4, Barefoot Network's Tofino, and new use cases they enable.

  • Title:Edge Computing for IOT
    Abstract: The cloud is too far to ingest millions to billions of records per minute and support needs for IOT, location based analytics, machine learning and so on. There is a need for edge computing i.e. to do computation and data processing right at the edge of the network where IoT connects the physical world to the Cloud. Another way to think of this as need of cloud intelligence closer to the IoT devices. This is also useful in remote locations where it can be difficult to get an internet connection, such as oil rigs or cruise ships, or those in regions with regulations that require that data be kept locally. In this session, we will discuss various architectures and approaches for edge computing.

  • Title:Asymmetric Attacks Mandate Credible Cyber Defense
    Abstract: Each mission critical system, such as a database or Web application server, may have over 100,000 vulnerabilities that may be exploited. A typical cyber vulnerability assessment discovers over 10% unique open vulnerabilities that can compromise the asset assessed. It takes just one exploit for the Cyber Risk = Disruptive Business Risk! This today translates to a seven or eight figure compliance or breach risk! The threat to industry systems and business in general, today, from cyber-attacks is asymmetric. Attack surfaces are increasing. The combination of IoT+DDoS, ransomware, and other targeted cyberattacks will challenge even the best of security defenses. To ensure enterprises address this asymmetric threat, businesses must implement a credible cybersecurity program.
