BRKSPG-2605 - End to End Security in a Hosted Collaboration Environment (2012 San Diego)Cisco’s Hosted Collaboration Solution (HCS) transpires a new computing paradigm for Service Providers. HCS utilizes distributed computational resources and supporting network infrastructure to enable dynamically configurable services that meets end user needs. The collaborative structure of the HCS cloud enables SPs to provide several valuable services such as Voice, Video, Presence/IM, Mobility, Unified messaging, Conferencing/Webex, and Telepresence to their corporate customers.
Traditionally Service Providers implement network security in multiple layers within the end-to-end solution. These could be data center virtual access layer, aggregation layer, core, Provider Edge (PE), and at the customer premise. With SP’s providing Hosted Collaboration services, to corporate customer such as Banks, Wall Street firms and DOD there are new security concerns like encryption and authentication even for simple voice and video calls. For Service Providers, this adds additional complexity due to SIP endpoints and other gateways that uses Transport Layer Security (TLS) as a transport protocol, instead of TCP and UDP.
