    Abstract = {The efficiency of network virtualization depends on the appropriate assignment of resources. The underlying problem, called Virtual Network Embedding, has been much discussed in the literature, and many algorithms have been proposed, attempting to optimize the resource assignment in various respects. Evaluation of those algorithms requires a large number of randomly generated embedding scenarios. This paper presents a novel scenario generation approach and demonstrates how to produce scenarios with a guaranteed exact solution, thereby facilitating better evaluation of embedding algorithms.},

    Abstract = {Abstract Network virtualization is widely regarded as a key technology for the Future Internet, enabling the deployment of new network protocols without changing dissimilar hardware devices. This leads to the problem of mapping virtual demands to physical resources, known as Virtual Network Embedding (VNE). Current VNE algorithms do not scale with respect to the substrate network size. Therefore, these algorithms are not applicable in large-scale scenarios where virtual networks have to be embedded in a timely manner. This paper discusses DPVNE, a Distributed and Generic VNE framework: It runs cost-oriented centralized embedding algorithms in a distributed way, spreading workload across the substrate network instead of concentrating it on one single node (as centralized algorithms do). Several state-of-the-art algorithms were evaluated running inside the DPVNE framework. Results show that DPVNE leads to runtime improvements in large-scale scenarios and embedding results are kept comparable.},

    Abstract = {Increasing demand in energy consumption, missed modernisations, and the increasing difficulties in predicting power production due to volatile renewable energy sources (e.g., based on wind or sun) impose major challenges to the power grid. Power supply and power demand are closely interconnected with the need to maintain the power grid in a stable state with a sufficient quality of power. This requires energy-relevant information to be exchanged through the so called Energy Information Network. Communication, however, is challenging within the Energy Information Network due to privacy, security, resiliency, and quality-of-service requirements. Particularly, the resilience of communication within the Energy Information Network needs to be considered to maintain the power grid in a stable and controlled state. This paper suggests a Virtualised Energy Information Network (VEIN), where the Energy Information Network is divided into multiple virtual networks that run over a common substrate network. Furthermore, this paper discusses benefits of this approach in terms of privacy, security, and resilience and points out open research questions.},

    Abstract = {The vision towards the Network of the Future cannot be separated from the fact that today’s networks, and networking services are subject to sophisticated and very effective attacks. When these attacks first appeared, spoofing and distributed denial-of-service attacks were treated as apocalypse for networking. Now, they are considered moderate damage, whereas more sophisticated and inconspicuous attacks, such as botnets activities, might have greater and far reaching impact. As the Internet is expanding to mobile phones and ‘smart dust’ and as its social coverage is liberalized towards the realization of ubiquitous computing (with communication), the concerns on security and privacy have become deeper and the problems more challenging than ever. Re-designing the Internet as the Network of the Future is self-motivating for researchers, and security and privacy cannot be provided again as separate, external, add-on, solutions. In this paper, we discuss the security and privacy challenges of the Network of the Future and try to delimit the solutions space on the basis of emerging techniques. We also review methods that help the quantification of security and privacy in an effort to provide a more systematic and quantitative treatment of the area in the future.},

    Abstract = {Network virtualization has been recognized as an important technique to overcome the perceived ossification of the current Internet. Several variations of network virtualization have already been discussed in the literature. These approaches use virtualization to partition and/or combine physical network resources into virtual network resources. An actual deployment of virtual networks then requires the network operator to perform a mapping of virtual resources onto physical resources. The question of how this mapping can be performed in an optimal way is commonly known as the Virtual Network Embedding (VNE) problem. Several algorithms to solve this problem have been proposed already. These algorithms, however, focus on optimizing the use of resources with regard to performance. Security constraints to the VNE problem have not been investigated in depth, so far.},

This paper aims to explore the architectural co-existence of new and legacy services and networks, via virtualisation of connectivity and computation resources and self-management capabilities, by fully integrating networking with cloud computing in order to create In-Network Clouds. It also presents the designs and experiments with a number of In-Network Clouds platforms, which have the aim to create a flexible environment for autonomic deployment and management of virtual networks and services as experimented with and validated on large-scale testbeds.},

    Abstract = {Public and private Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) clouds are widely used by individuals and organizations to provision flexible virtual computing resources on demand. Virtual Network Embedding (VNE) algorithms are employed in this context to provide an automated resource assignment. With multiple involved parties security-aware Virtual Machine (VM) placement becomes highly relevant for production environments. Moreover, VNE algorithms should also consider the security requirements of the interconnections between VMs, thereby extending the problem to networks. This paper discusses security requirements of Virtual Networks (VNs) and shows how they can be modeled in VNE to map them to the provided security mechanisms in the physical network. The paper also presents an implementation of this security-aware VNE model in the public simulation platform ALEVIN, demonstrating the applicability with a realistic use case of such a model.},

    Abstract = {Das elektrische Energieversorgungssystem durchläuft gegenwärtig eine Transformation zu einem Energiesystem mit dem Vorrang an erneuerbaren, volatilen Energien sowie den Trends zu einer lastfernen und im hohen Maße zunehmenden dezentralen Erzeugung. Hierdurch ergeben sich Veränderungen im Netz und in der Netztopologie, die u. a. dadurch gekennzeichnet sind, dass die Prozessdatenverarbeitung (PDV) und die Bürokommunikation (IT) schleichend mehr und mehr zusammenwachsen (auch als OT/IT-Integration bezeichnet). Desweiteren sind Prozesssteuerungssysteme dezentraler Anlagen zunehmend über das Internet erreich- und konfigurierbar. Hierdurch ergeben sich neue Bedrohungsszenarien, die es bis dato nicht gab, auf die jedoch zukünftig reagiert werden muss. Das Positionpapier beleuchtet zunächst neue Sicherheitsziele und Sicherheitsanforderungen, die sich in Folge der Markt- und Netzintegration und der zunehmenden OT/IT-Integration ergeben. Anschließend werden Angreifermodelle und Schutzmaßnahmen erläutert; ferner werden Test und Testverfahren vorgestellt, mittels denen man eine Sicherheitsevaluierung von Energieinformationsnetzen vornehmen kann. Aufbauend darauf werden die aktuell diskutierten Smart Grid Topologien betrachet und Design-Empfehlungen für Sicherheitssysteme, einerseits für bestehende historisch gewachsene Architekturen, andererseits für den Entwurf neuer Architekturen, vorgestellt; denn Sicherheitsaspekte müssen beim Entwurf neuer Systeme essentieller Bestandteil der Topologie sein. Abschließend werden spezifische Handlungsempfehlungen für Politik, Standardisierung, Energieversorger, Hersteller und Wissenschaft/Forschung zum Aufbau sicherer IKT-Infrastrukturen für die Energieversorgungssysteme vorgestellt.},

Most algorithms for mapping virtual resources to substrate resources however do not consider energy as a factor for the mapping. In order to evaluate the energy-efficiency of such a mapping, an energy model and appropriate energy-aware metrics are needed. This paper discusses how an algorithm can be modified to take energy-efficiency into account. The modified algorithm is then evaluated, showing that energy-efficiency can be increased with only a minor impact on embedding quality regarding other metrics.},

The added flexibility manifests itself in the possibility to create arbitrarily structured virtual networks that do not necessarily have to reflect the topology or the properties of the underlying physical network. The problem of mapping virtual resources to physical resources in such an environment is commonly known as ,,Virtual Network Embedding'', and almost all existing embedding algorithms do this in a centralized manner. The exploitation of distributed approaches aims to improve performance and to increase the level of reliability: stability and scalability of the whole system should be ensured.

In any network virtualization environment, the problem of optimally mapping virtual resources to physical resources, known as virtual network embedding (VNE), is a critical challenge. Several algorithms attempting to solve this problem have been proposed in literature, so far.

To that end, the VNREAL project introduces ALEVIN, a framework to compare different algorithms according to a set of metrics, easily incorporate new VNE algorithms, and evaluate these algorithms on a given scenario for arbitrary parameters.},

Virtualization is one of the means which can be deployed for resilience purposes. In this paper we follow a systematic approach to the use of virtualization to increase the resilience of network services. First, we provide an analysis of the potential failures of services running within Virtual Machines (VM) and how VM migration or replication can be used to address these failures. Then, we address the problem of re-establishing connectivity between a service and its clients upon successful migration, by leveraging results from mobility research. A special focus is given to wide-area VM migration, since it is considered as the solution for some difficult failures, e.g., large-scale failures due to natural disasters.},

Previous implementations of Virtual Network (VN) deployment software either provided limited access to the network layer (like PlanetLab), or focused only on specific application scenarios (like VNUML or VLAN). A first step toward the expected flexibility, with a solution that is both universal and thorough, is the implementation of network virtualization using system virtualization approaches [2].},

The paper positions the autonomic network management approach taken by the AUTOI solution in a Future Internet scenario and describes the main interactions involved of the different distributed management systems running within the network in the context of the aforementioned scenario. The paper also provides a selection of the technical difficulties encountered so far while developing such a management approach.},
