Implementation Security, or a Language-theoretic Security Analysis of OpenFlow and What I Found There

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • Implementation is the most immediate aspect of security in the construction of real-world distributed computing systems; designs have flaws but vulnerabilities themselves manifest in implementations. The challenge of securing systems during implementation is apparent from observing the computing world struggle to manage vulnerabilities. The fact is that the fundamental structure of the implementation security problem is still
    not well-defined or even easily discernible, and might never be. In spite of the lack of a encompassing problem to solve, I will argue that we can work with the knowledge gained from failures, using the knowledge to develop heuristic approaches that have practical value.
