TOPIC         Securing the Internet Cloud: Challenges and Opportunities

DESCRIPTION   Threats to the availability and security of the Internet have
              undergone a rapid and dramatic evolution over the past few
              years. Spurred by financial gains or political motives,
              attackers have become proficient at hiding themselves using
              compromised hosts as proxies and amplifying the power of
              their attacks using distributed software.  The result is vast
              numbers of compromised computers, or bots, enabling a rapid
              increase in spam, phishing and identity theft. These
              challenges illustrate how we are at the limits of existing
              detection and mitigation technologies. This presentation
              discusses the changing Internet ecology and the evolution of
              zero-day threats. It will also introduce a new security model
              for networked environments based on the concept of shifting
              security services into the network cloud. This framework is
              inspired by successful detection and mitigation solutions in
              service provider environments.
