One Line Summary

Ensuring that new network architectures have built-in security


Overlay based network virtualization provides a nice way to enable ubiquitous encryption in the data center since it avoids many of the pain points that have historically prevented its deployment. However, while the pieces are mostly there or are coming in the near future, it’s not yet something that is trivial to implement.

This is a follow on to last year’s talk, specifically focusing on what can be done with new protocols and hardware that is starting to emerge.
