The future Internet will rely on virtualization and cloud networking, and one of the main challenges is to achieve highly secure virtual networks and cloud accesses. The main problems addressed by this project are secure identification, secure authentication, secure data transfer, secure virtualized infrastructure, and privacy in virtual networks and clouds, exploring techniques such as the usage of microcontrollers, resource management, intrusion tolerant algorithms, and cryptographic protocols. The goal of the SecFuNet project is to design and develop a coherent security architecture for virtual networks and cloud accesses. This architecture must allow the management of security with respect to communications for all machines connected to a public cloud using virtual networks. Hence, we need a coherent and robust identification scheme as well as a strong authentication system. Algorithms robust to intrusions are also needed for creating a secure environment. Besides, the proposed architecture must guarantee security in the virtualized infrastructure, through isolation of virtual networks and access control for users and managers. These aspects must not compromise users’ privacy. Moreover, it is necessary to bring an ergonomic security scheme that is acceptable for all users, even those unknowledgeable in computer science. Finally, the proposed scheme must take into account the heterogeneity of equipment (wireless and wired) to preserve interoperability.
