[01-03] In-Network Support for End-to-End Diagnostics and Security
Title: In-Network Support for End-to-End Diagnostics and Security
Speaker: 陈昂（Assistant Professor）Rice University
Abstract: One emerging trend of today's networks is that they are becoming highly programmable. Such programmability brings unique opportunities unfound in traditional, fixed-function networks. In this talk, I will describe our recent work in leveraging programmable data planes for network diagnosis and security. The first part of the talk revolves around a logical abstraction called "temporal provenance". This abstraction models the processing of requests in distributed systems for diagnosis, and can be supported by new in-network telemetry primitives. The second part of the talk describes how network programmability enables advanced policies for context-aware security.
