A draft of a BoF for the upcoming JT... For those planning, thinking, or
wondering about attendance - I think 'til the end of the week for the group
rate on the hotel.
JT BOF: Security Implications of Optical Bypass
Changes in fundamental network infrastructure technologies are
allowing lambda's access directly into the core of campus networks.
This possibility opens a tremendous amount of opportunity for
researchers as well having serious security implications. The BOF is
designed to discuss what the changes in infrastructure might mean for
Initial Discussion Topics:
- What is optical bypass? Architectural alternatives,
common definitions, user communities, long haul vs. local
loop vs. campus responsibilities, etc.
- Are security implications any different? Tools (mibs, span
ports, taps, etc), organizational entities on campuses,
interaction with "rest of the network," etc.
- How are campuses different? Campuses that are
- Who needs to be involved in the discussion? From
campuses, researchers, backbone, funding agencies, etc.
