The objective of this workshop is to present state-of-the-art solutions for Cloud solutions, and their associated management and orchestration. The first aspect of this conference will cover new control and orchestration solutions. A second aspect relates to the safety and security of applications made available through Cloud technology and solutions. For this reason new concepts such as an “authentication credentials cloud” solution can increase security in network protocols, as well as fixed and mobile applications. A third element that will be covered involves the solutions and inherent challenges involving the relationship between the control plane (hypervisors) and userspace (virtual machines).

Workshop topics include (but are not limited to):

  • Cloud networks and Distributed Cloud
  • Cloud computing and network virtualization
  • Data Center Network Control, Security and Optimization
  • Intra-Cloud vs Inter-Cloud Control and Security
  • Control and Secure Multi-Tenancy
  • SDN: Software-Defined Networking
  • Control algorithms using Cloud
  • Security, trust and privacy challenges
  • Security and control of Mobile Internet applications
  • Cloud of Security
  • Crowdsourcing and Cloud services
  • Security of Virtual Machines
  • Virtual firewalls
  • Virtual identity management server
  • Cyber attacks Cloud-oriented vs Cyber defense Cloud-oriented
  • Secure elements for the Cloud
  • Payment security and Cloud
