Event Title

Vulnerability and security and in XGS-PON and NG-PON2 technologies

Session

Computer Science and Communication Engineering

Description

Network security in general is attracting a great deal of attention from engineering community all over the world. Today most of the electronic equipment that we possess in our homes and offices have a degree of “smartens” and most of them require network connection to operate in full capacity. Every equipment that is connected to a network, can be subject of security breach. This fact draws great deal of attention to the vulnerability of fixed access networks with special attention towards Fiber to the Home (FTTH) technologies. The reason is simple, FTTH provides a gateway to our data and privacy and if not addressed properly this can cause a very big security issue.

In the paper, we will address main security threats of FTTH technologies in general, with particular focus being on the future FTTH technologies such as XGS-PON ( 10G passive optical networks) and NG-PON2 (Next generation passive optical network). We will underline and analyze the latest security updates and best practices to address this security threats that FTTH technologies face today.
