Cloud computing plays a key role in business requirements nowadays. On the other hand, security is one of the major anxieties of both cloud provider and cloud customer where critical services are asked/provided in cloud. The CloudSec laboratory has been established with the aim of promoting knowledge in cloud computing and network/information security. The ongoing projects in these two areas are:
- Reliability and Survivability Analysis of Data Center Network Topologies
- Network Function Virtualization challenges
- Defense mechanisms against multi-step attacks
- Vulnerability assessment and analysis
