SDN in LANs: Programming the Network to Secure IoT Traffic


On Demand

Duration:60 minutes


The webinar will present results from an internal research project that aims at giving back to users control over their connected lives. By using virtualization and software-defined networking we scout the future of connected environments, in which dedicated, isolated network overlays, within and across administrative domains, are automatically set up on behalf of the users. The resulting solution provides means for users to have fine-grained control over the sharing and composition of their IoT resources, by explicitly defining which resources should be shared, with whom and how, while relieving them of the underlying networking technical complexity. We will describe the overall solution before illustrating its behavior in a number of scenarios, insisting on its benefits and challenges such as security & privacy.


Matthieu Boussard

Matthieu Boussard is a research fellow at Nokia Bell Labs. He received his engineering degree from the French ‘Institut National des Télécommunications’ in 2000, specializing on parallel and distributed computing. After working as a Guest Researcher at the National Institute of Standards and Technologies (NIST) on clustering environments, he joined telecom manufacturer Alcatel as a development and system engineer in 2001. In 2004, he joined Alcatel’s Research & Innovation division, working on context-aware systems, multimodal user interfaces research, and mobile and ubicomp applications, taking part in and coordinating multiple internal and collaborative research projects. During 2010-2013, he has been leading internal research projects investigating Web of Things and Smart Environments. Since 2014, he has been investigating the applicability of Software-Defined Networking to Internet of Things security and applications. He has co-authored over 20 peer-reviewed publications and 20 patents.

Nicolas Le Sauze

Nicolas Le Sauze received his engineering degree in 1998 from the ENST Bretagne in France and joined the Alcatel corporate research centre to work on optical packet switches and optical Ethernet solutions for metropolitan networks until 2006. He then acted as research manager with Alcatel-Lucent Bell Labs in Villarceaux, leading various projects on Ethernet and IP technologies and related control protocols. From 2010 to 2013, he led the FP7 ETICS project on solutions and business models for inter-carrier QoS management. Since 2014, his research interests revolve around the evolutions of network protocols and network solutions in support of the emerging Internet of Things challenges. He authored or co-authored around 30 technical papers in peer-reviewed international conferences or journals, and owns over 20 active patents.
