Software Defined Perimeter: A New Approach to Security

Time 10/05/15 11:20AM-12:10PM

Room Room 26-A

Session Abstract

Software Defined Perimeter (SDP) is a new approach to security that is able to protect Internet connected application servers against cyber attacks. SDP works by authenticating a users device and identity before granting access to application servers (conceptually it creates the Internet equivalent of a need-to-know network). SDP leverages standard security components such as MFA, SAML and Mutual TLS but sequences them in a novel way to mitigate cyber attacks from DDoS, Credential Theft to Server Exploits. SDP was started as a public domain research project of the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) and has had strong support from companies ranging from Coca Cola to Verizon and Mazda.

This session will provide participants an overview of SDP as well as discussion of how they may participate.
