About this event

Over the past 4 years, Duke has established SDN bypass networks, an SDN mediated Science DMZ, and other services that rely on identity data about the users and the equipment at Duke.   One such service is the Protected Research and Data Network (PRDN), which makes use of our Identity Management (IDM) services both for Duke researchers and their collaborators at other institutions.

In this presentation we will discuss the path that Duke took to implement our network, link the various pieces together and the security model used to protect the network and detect unusual activity.  Web based access to services provided inside of our PRDN allow for simple implementation of multi-factor authentication and we will present some novel methods for providing access to both Windows and Linux services inside of a browser.  We will also discuss Plexus, our Ryu based SDN controller, and our plans around the firewall/proxy management application, Locutus, that allows us to support multiple controllers in different spaces of our network (alternative to flow space firewall).  A short discussion of our ability to integrate with GENI/exoGENI sevices, AL2S, and our regional SDN project will be included.

More information about this presentation is on the event page.

The Center for Trustworthy Scientific Cyberinfrastructure (CTSC) announces the Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (CCOE)Webinar Series to fulfill their mission of providing readily available cybersecurity services tailored to the NSF science community. 

The webinars are recorded and will be linked to this page for later viewing. Each webinar includes time for questions from attendees, so please join the live webinar if you are able. They use Adobe Connect to conduct the webinars (test your connection, Adobe add-in not required for participants). Participant lines are muted. They provide a chat box for participant questions.
