Security through Virtualization

We tend to talk a lot about security through obscurity. But what about security through virtualization? I’ve been thinking about both security and virtualization quite a bit lately. I also had the privilege of visiting VMware‘s HQ in Palo Alto with Tech Field Day twice last year. That’s interesting because VMware is using their place […]

Secure Multicloud Networking with Contrail

I recently had the privilege of hearing from the Juniper Networks Contrail product team at their offices in Sunnyvale. I was pleasantly surprised by the pragmatic and comprehensive approach they are taking in growing the product line. By the middle of this year (2018) there will be four distinct products; Contrail Networking, Contrail Security, Contrail […]

IPv6 Security Myth #10: Deploying IPv6 is Too Risky

After a quick break to catch our breath (and read all those IPv6 Security Resources), it’s now time to look at our tenth and final IPv6 Security Myth. In many ways this myth is the most important myth to bust. Let’s take a look at why: Myth: Deploying IPv6 Makes My Network Less Secure Reality: […]

IPv6 Security Myth #9: There Aren’t Any IPv6 Security Resources

We are approaching the end of this 10 part series on the most common IPv6 security myths. Now it’s time to turn our eyes away from security risks to focus a bit more on security resources. Today’s myth is actually one of the most harmful to those who hold it. If you believe that there […]

IPv6 Security Myth #8: It Supports IPv6

Most of our IPv6 Security Myths are general notions, often passed on unwittingly between colleagues, friends, conference attendees, and others. Today’s myth is one that most often comes specifically from your vendors or suppliers. Whether it’s a hardware manufacturer, software developer, or Internet Service Provider (ISP), this myth is all about trust, but verify. Myth: […]

Introducing RFC 7454: BGP Operations and Security

Today I’m re-reading an IETF RFC that was published just this month. RFC 7454 is titled “BGP Operations and Security” and that’s exactly what it’s about. The documents’ abstract does a great job of summarizing the content: This document describes measures to protect the BGP sessions itself such as Time to Live (TTL), the TCP […]

IPv6 Security Myth #7: 96 More Bits, No Magic

This week’s myth is interesting because if we weren’t talking security it wouldn’t be a myth. Say what? The phrase “96 more bits, no magic” is basically a way of saying that IPv6 is just like IPv4, with longer addresses. From a pure routing and switching perspective, this is quite accurate. OSPF, IS-IS, and BGP […]
