Real-Life Network and Security Automation

While vendor marketers keep confusing customer engineers with buzzwords like “software-defined” and “intent-driven”, an increasing number of network- and security engineers decided to go another way and solve their problems the way system administrators did years ago: by combining simple tools into a system that delivers real-life solutions to real-life problems. The talk will focus on several simple use cases.

The talk will describe real-life use cases implemented in production networks, including:

  • Configuration management and version control;
  • Information gathering and reporting;
  • Automatic deployment of data center fabrics and associated services;
  • Automatic generation and deployment of firewall rules;
  • Network state validation;
  • Compliance reports
