Welcome to NSERC/Ericsson IRC in SDN/NFV Security

The main objective of the NSERC/Ericsson Industrial Research Chair (IRC) in SDN/NFV Security is to develop a series of solutions to improve the security of Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and Software-Defined Networking (SDN)-based cloud and edge computing virtual infrastructures, with special application to virtual radio access network (vRAN). The new knowledge and technologies that would be transferred to the industrial partner and Canadian telecommunications industry through this research include security solutions that encompass a full lifecycle at both the core and edge of telecommunication networks, i.e., monitoring the security compliance of SDN/NFV-based virtual infrastructures, detecting misconfigurations or attacks causing compliance breaches, and mitigating the detected threats proactively.
