Protect your data objects, not your network connections

Good news for a paradigm shift


1) Current situation: complicated & incomplete threat models 2) Concepts worth looking into 3) data sovereignty 4) named data networks 5) zero trust 6) Our hands-on experience with the above

The current state of play to protect data is a tedious task that involves many stakeholders and blocks resources. The shift from on-premise to private/public cloud systems requires a careful inspection of an assumed threat model. The application of a zero-trust model is one radical shift to authenticate and authorize at any given point in your IT landscape, but most importantly it breaks with the assumption that we can design systems that are "safe and secure". The talk will highlight the above mentioned concepts and will give a brief outline of a new approach called Named Data Network (NDN) and how this could improve the situation in terms of data sovereignty.
