IEEE ICC 2012 Industry Forums Program

The Industry Forums are designed to deliver broad interest in telecommunication industry’s current practiced technology, major technology implementations, complex IT business systems, regulatory impact assessments, economic models, and engineering methods used by industry practitioners.

The Industry Forums are focused on three technology pillars with a total of 18 unique forum sessions planned. The duration of each of the forums is 105 minutes with a moderator and 3-6 speakers of with industry expertise in the featured topical area. After all the speakers have presented, a Q&A discussion will follow among the speakers and the audiences.

Wednesday, June 13 from 14:00 to 15:45

Panel on Security of Cloud Communications and Networking

Convergence and ubiquity are the key characteristics of tomorrow’s service provision infrastructures. Cloud architectures will constitute cost-efficient backbones that will support the transmission, storage, and computing of the applications contents. These architectures can be used for business, scientific, pervasive computing purposes. The diversity of the services delivered through cloud infrastructures increases their vulnerability to security incidents and attacks. The cost and complexity reduction requirements render the design and development of protection mechanisms even more challenging. In addition, key design features such as confidentiality, privacy, authentication, anonymity, survivability, dependability, and fault-tolerance are, in some extent, conflicting. The objective of this forum is to explore research directions and technology trends to address the protection of cloud communications and networking infrastructures.

The major topics that will be discussed by the participants include the following:

  • Survivability and fault-tolerance in networked data-centers
  • Cyber-security laws and their impact on cloud-based services
  • Security economics analysis of pervasive/mobile services
  • Security standards, guidelines, and baselines for cloud infrastructures
  • Case studies of attacks and security incidents

Reputed experts and leaders from the industry will depict a futuristic view of cloud security technology, industry/ market solutions, and business systems and application to solve business, society, or governmental needs.
