CHARISMA implements a management platform, combining cloud, network slicing, SDN, and NFV technologies while focusing on security aspects. Security policy management, decision control for threat detection, virtualization isolation, identity and access management and proactive traffic and resource monitoring are the mechanisms used in CHARISMA V-Security solution for 5G networks.
CHARISMA dashboard, front-end of the CHARISMA CMO, enables VNOs to configure alert rules (monitoring metrics) for particular resources for a deployed service within their assigned slice through a user friendly GUI. Similarly, VNOs can configure and apply a security policy, based on the alerts defined earlier, for selected resources in their slice. Once, the alert rules and security policy for a resource is in place, the CHARISMA v-security solution is ready for action. The figure below illustrates the operational cycle of CHARISMA v-security solution.
