This presentation will cover the how security processes are changing with the virtualization of connectivity and the protocols which underpin the security of modern networks. It will focus on the partitioning of security features within the network, trade-offs when deploying cryptography in a network and how standards are changing to address new challenges. It will introduce IPSec and TLS, the most prolific protocols deployed in live networks, and the roles of asymmetric and symmetric cipher algorithms within these protocols.
