janerygaard, that's an interesting approach.  I am with you in that SDN/NFV by design with its distributed networks compounds the risks.  Your idea of constant monitoring through automation makes sense.

The other approach I was thinking was to create another layer (i.e., platform) and control that perimeter, rather than all the points?

Clearly, they are smart to be focusing on this.  If they can establish a solution that holds the confidence of their customers, they will have an edge.

Re: This topic divides rooms
I dont think there are two sides to the story. NFV/SDN will introduce more security challenges, and independently if they are easy to fix or not - the pure amount of them will be a challenge (read: risk). So security processes need to be automated within the orchestration layer to ensure the first level of security.

I hear both sides of the story.... one side says that vitrualization leaves a single point of attack while the other says it makes it more distrivbuted and easy to close down a security breach...

Intersting that security concerns are not halting Level 3's SDN/NFV implementations.
