A Novel Cyber-Security Framework Leveraging Programmable Capabilities in Digital Services
The introduction of new computing and networking paradigms, which leverage vir- tualization and service-oriented architectures, has brought far more agility than ever in the creation and concatenation of digital services. Yet it raises new security and privacy concerns that cannot be properly tackled by existing tools and models.
In this paper, we briefly review the main characteristics of emerging digital services, point out open cyber-security challenges, and discuss the need to include cyber-security programmable capabilities in every digital component. We also describe a novel framework for managing such functions and implement multiple security services for complex business chains.
