Stefan Schmid  received the best paper award at the ACM Symposium
on SDN Research  (SOSR) 2018, the premier venue for SDN research.
The paper is a result of collaboration between the Security in
Telecommunications  and Internet Network Architecture  Chair
at TU Berlin. The paper discusses how an attacker can easily gain
privileged and remote access to an entire SDN-based cloud system,
thereby compromising the security of the cloud tenants and the cloud
provider. The authors cast light on the insecurities of virtual
networking that can be leveraged by an attacker in and SDN-based
cloud. Virtual networking is a crucial requirement for cloud providers
such as Amazon, Google, Microsoft and Detusche Telekom to isolate
their tenants from each other. The attack was demonstrated using Open
vSwitch and OpenStack, an open-source SDN-based cloud system. A
preliminary version of the paper appeared in the ACM Cloud Computing
Security Workshop  2017.
