Today in the Priority Queue channel we’re talking about an IETF project called Interface to Network Security Functions (i2nsf).
The goal of the project is to provide a standard set of software interfaces and data models for service providers that want to provide to customers a mix of security functions (for example, firewalling, malware scanning, etc.) from different vendors.
Greg Ferro talks with Linda Dunbar, a Working Group chair for i2nsf. They discuss the need for the project, outline its major goals, and review examples of how a common model to describe security actions and events across different vendor products would work.
Thanks to Huawei, which covered travel and accommodations to enable the Packet Pushers to attend IETF 99 and record some shows to spread the news about IETF projects and initiatives.
