Flexible Network Architectures Security: Principles and Issues
The future of Internet security doesn’t lie in doing more of the same. It requires not only a new architecture, but the means of securing that architecture. Two trends have come together to make the topic of this book of vital interest. First, the explosive growth of the Internet connections for the exchange of information via networks increased the dependence of both organizations and individuals on the systems stored and communicated. This, in turn, has increased the awareness for the need to protect the data and add security as chief ingredient in the newly emerged architectures. Second, the disciplines of cryptography and network security have matured and are leading to the development of new techniques and protocols to enforce the network security in Future Internet. This book examines the new security architectures from organizations such as FIArch, GENI, and IETF and how they’ll contribute to a more secure Internet.
