Could SDN Revolutionize Network Security? - Network World

Could SDN Revolutionize Network Security? - Network World | Future Technologies and Expected Impacts | Scoop.it
Enterprise organizations identify attractive use cases where SDN-enabled network security can be used to improve threat detection/response, ease network security policy auditing, and centralize network security policy and configuration management.
Antonio Marcos Alberti's insight:

The relation of SDN and security is vastly unexplored. To software-define security hardware could help on automation and efficacy of security policies. However, for this we need a much broader scoped solution than OpenFlow. With OpenFlow, one can change data flows forwarding according to security policies. This is interesting, but still limited when compared to the full potential of software-defined security equipments.

NovaGenesis: New Internet Architecture

NovaGenesis: New Internet Architecture | Future Technologies and Expected Impacts | Scoop.it

NovaGenesis objective is to create a clean slate architecture for new generation information exchanging and processing. It can be seen as a Future Internet initiative. It aims at creating a new environment for convergent technology evolution. It started in 2008 at Inatel, Minas Gerais, Brazil.
NovaGenesis project aims at creating a new ICT environment to support the full, convergent, and accelerated technology evolution we are experiencing today.


NovaGenesis supports the idea that all technologies are converging to a radical new, worldwide, overspread, convergent architecture for information exchanging and processing.

 NovaGenesis believes that a clean slate architecture is required to create the ideal environment to continue technology evolution in a more cohesive, synergistic, efficient, flexible, and accelerated way.

 

NovaGenesis means "new beginning". The name came from the idea that a radical new environment for ICT can create a new beginning for digital technology evolution. We are just in the beginning of the information age!

 

NovaGenesis adopts the Internet of Information and Services (IoIS) paradigm, where information-centric and service-centric approaches are combined to integrate information treatment, storage, and exchanging. 

Antonio Marcos Alberti's insight:

Imagine if there were no Internet today! How could it be built? How would it be? This is the goal of NovaGenesis project. Create a new Internet architecture, so different that can resemble a new begging, a new digital genesis, where digital existences (services) will discover each other, negotiate, and exchange information. Protocols will be implemented as services, creating a very dynamic stack for the Internet. Physical world entities will be represented by these services, creating a self-organizing swarm of "smart things". Programmable matter can be obtained by service-defined "swarms of micro and nano things". Finally, we are going to integrate this emerging architecture with our minds, converging biological and synthetic intelligences towards a man-machine reality. Elegant, simple, self-similar services will cooperate forming swarms of distributed intelligence, integrating physical and virtual worlds.

Antonio Marcos Alberti's insight:

Internet of Things comes to stay! US$ 3B on investment is a lot of money. The problem with these IoT efforts is that they face the limitations of current Internet architecture. Many technologies in the core of the Internet (TCP, UDP, IP, and many others) are from the 70`s. IoT needs new approaches. Two examples of these limitations are the limited naming and management scalability. In the current Internet architecture, only hosts, ports, and URLs are named. However, IoT requires everything to be named. This is important to precisely and perennially identifying a communication target. Nobody will accept loosing of traceability or doubt on identification on critical sensors or actuators. Also, there is the issues that the current management approach (mainly based on SNMP) will not scale to billions of devices manually managed. We need self-driven approaches for IoT management. It works for cars, it should work for "Things"..

Putting a seal of security on the Internet of Services

Putting a seal of security on the Internet of Services | Future Technologies and Expected Impacts | Scoop.it

Book a flight online, perform an internet banking transaction or make an appointment with your doctor and, in the not-too-distant future, the 'Internet of Services' (IoS) will come into play.

 

IoS is a vision of the future internet in which information, data and software applications - and the tools to develop them - are always accessible, whether locally stored on your own device, in the cloud, or arriving in real time from sensors. Whereas traditional software applications are designed largely to be used in isolation, IoS brings down the barriers, thereby lowering costs and stimulating innovation.

 

IoS services can be designed and implemented by producers, deployed by providers, aggregated by intermediaries and used by consumers. Anybody who wants to develop applications can use the resources in the Internet of Services to develop them, with little upfront investment and the possibility to build upon other people's efforts.


Via trendspotter
Antonio Marcos Alberti's insight:

Many IoS initiatives for the Future Internet does not employ self-certifying names. This is an important drawnback for IoS security. There is a lack of convergence between content-centric networks (CCN)(also known as information-centric networks - ICN) and service-centric networks. Hopefully, some initiatives will eventually converge with ICN, improving traceablity, integrity, provenance, and security of the IoS.

What Will The Internet Look Like In 100 Years - #Internet #infographic #technology
Antonio Marcos Alberti's insight:

Trends... They are very difficult to predict. Internet by definition means a network to interconnect computer networks. It is all about information exchanging among computers. However, the current panorama is more broad than information exchanging. We have big data centers and distributed computing which is about information processing. There is also the need for data storage. Thus, technically speaking we need something more broad than an Internet. We need a convergent information architecture, something the gracefully integrates information exchanging, processing, storage, and displaying. Many of these trends have already prototypes today and would be reality in 100 years. Many of them are not in fact part of the Internet. They are applications. Many of them require more deep architectural solutions, that go beyond of current Internet limitations. Internet of Everything for example!

Internet of Things: The new frontier for data security and privacy (Part 1)

Internet of Things: The new frontier for data security and privacy (Part 1) | Future Technologies and Expected Impacts | Scoop.it
There is no silver bullet to reap the benefits of IoT devices while mitigating potential security and privacy problems. However, companies can best steel themselves against vulnerabilities by baking security and privacy into IoT device design.

Via Roger Smith
Antonio Marcos Alberti's insight:

What we need are new architectures build from scratch considering that the Internet will reach all "Things". The security and privacy on current Internet architecture were introduced incrementally. There are limitations to what can be done this way. Emerging future Internet architectures like XIA (http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~xia/), RINA (http://irati.eu/) or NovaGenesis (www.inatel.br/novagenesis) are intrinsically more secure, since they have been planned for security since their early days.

Why not to put the Internet on the cars? The reality is that the current Internet architecture is not ready for this. We need new Internet architectures that preserve the social, economical, and democratic achievements of this fantastic artifact. There are emerging standards for  Internet of Things that will be interconnected to the TCP/IP stack (the technologies behind the current Internet architecture from the 70`s). However, their interoperability is poor. Imagine there is no Internet today. How would you redesign it? Of course, you will include mobile things like cars.

Google Acquires Seven Robot Companies, Wants to Play a Big Role in Robotics

Google Acquires Seven Robot Companies, Wants to Play a Big Role in Robotics | Future Technologies and Expected Impacts | Scoop.it

A few months ago, Andy Rubin, the engineer who spearheaded the development of Android at Google, initiated a new robotics effort at the company. Rubin, who is personally interested in robots, now wants Google to have a major role in making new kinds of robotics happen. Not just robotic cars, but actual real robots. A recent article in the New York Times has revealed more about Google's plans. According to the article, Google is funding a major new robotics group, and that includes acquiring a bunch of robotics startups:


Among the companies are Schaft, a small team of Japanese roboticists who recently left Tokyo University to develop a humanoid robot, and Industrial Perception, a start-up here that has developed computer vision systems and robot arms for loading and unloading trucks. Also acquired were Meka and Redwood Robotics, makers of humanoid robots and robot arms in San Francisco, and Bot & Dolly, a maker of robotic camera systems that were recently used to create special effects in the movie “Gravity.” A related firm, Autofuss, which focuses on advertising and design, and Holomni, a small design firm that makes high-tech wheels, were acquired as well.

 


The seven companies are capable of creating technologies needed to build a mobile, dexterous robot. Mr. Rubin said he was pursuing additional acquisitions.

 

 

Some brief highlights:

Schaft is one of the Track A teams participating in the DARPA Robotics Challenge with their own custom robot based on the HRP-2.Industrial Perception spun out of Willow Garage back in March of 2012; read our Startup Spotlight post on them here.Meka Robotics builds research robots with series elastic actuators in them; they're probably best known for the M1 humanoid (pictured above in front of the Google logo) and Dreamer, which you can read about here.Redwood Robotics is (was) a collaboration between Willow Garage, SRI, and Meka that was supposedly designing a very low cost robotic arm. We've been asking around and haven't heard much for the last year or so, maybe now we know why.And of course, there's Bot & Dolly, which uses robot arms for precise and repeatable camera control, making things way more awesome than "precise and repeatable camera control" probably makes you think of.

 

Obviously, we're curious about what other acquisitions Rubin is pursuing, and more generally, just what Google is actually working on. Fortunately for us, the Google robotics group will at least initially be based right here in Palo Alto, meaning that I'll get a chance to put my spy drones and ninja outfit to good use.
