Abstract

Network operators are currently very cautious before deploying a new network equipment. This is done only if the new networking solution is fully monitored, secured and can provide rapid revenues (short Return of Investment). For example, the NDN (Named Data Networking) solution is admitted as promising but still uncertain, thus making network operators reluctant to deploy it. Having a flexible environment would allow network operators to initiate the deployment of new network solutions at low cost and low risk. The virtualization techniques, appeared a few years ago, can help to provide such a flexible networking architecture. However, with it, emerge monitoring and security issues which should be solved. In this paper, we present our secure virtualized networking environment to deploy new functions and protocol stacks in the network, with a specific focus on the NDN use-case as one of the potential Future Internet technology. As strong requirements for a network operator, we then focus on monitoring and security components, highlighting where and how they can be deployed and used. Finally, we introduce our preliminary evaluation, with a focus on security, before presenting the test bed, involving end-users consuming real contents, that we will set up for the assessment of our approach.
