Safe and Secure European Routing

Within the SASER-SIEGFRIED project, Nokia designs an architecture and technologies for secure future networks in close collaboration with the other project partners. The target is to correct security deficits of today’s Layer 3 networks. The following activities were accomplished for this objective:

  • Firstly, data transmission are downscaled as far as possible to lower network layers (Layer 1 and 2), to reduce the need of IP-routers, which have to be considered as critical to security. This can be realized by adopting technologies of network virtualization and efficient redundancy, based on flexible and highly available optical systems.
  • Secondly, mechanisms of security for future networks are designed, based on an analysis of remaining security problems in Layer 3 (for example: Backdoor and Anomaly detection).
