Exploring Challenges in Securing 10 Gbps R&E Networks
Time 12/06/06 03:00PM-04:00PM
Research and education networks are some of the fastest in the world and there are no conventional firewalls, IDS, or IPS that can operate at these speeds. The computing power of the microprocessor or network processor is simply insufficient to address security problems at 10 Gbps. However, a computational architecture called Multiple Instruction Single Data (MISD) based on massive, fine-grain parallelism is ideally suited for deep packet inspection and can keep up with the fastest networks today. The Peter Kiewit Institute represents a dynamic partnership between the University of Nebraska at Omaha's College of Information Science and Technology, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln's College of Engineering and Technology, and business and industry. At the Peter Kiewit Institute, we have been examining and exploring the technologies, design considerations, implementation choices and challenges for securing 10 Gbps links. This talk will provide an overview of the problem space and a deep dive into the solutions we have been studying.
