The GTA/UFRJ team, headed by Prof. Otto Carlos, developed a blockchain-based system for providing security to virtualized networks and network slicing, ensuring auditability, non-repudiation, and integrity of orchestration operations. The work developed by the team of Prof. Duarte was recently awarded the “Best Paper Award” for the paper “Provendo uma Infraestrutura de Software Fatiada, Isolada e Segura de Funções Virtuais através da Tecnologia de Corrente de Blocos” during the II Workshop em Blockchain: Teoria, Tecnologias e Aplicações (WBlockchain’2019) of the XXXVII Simpósio Brasileiro de Redes de Computadores e Sistemas Distribuídos (SBRC’2019). This is the second year in a row that the team lead by prof. Otto wins the award. The success of this research is due to the work of Gabriel Antonio F. Rebello, Gustavo F. Camilo, Leonardo G. C. Silva, Lucas C. B. Guimarães, Lucas A. C. Souza and Igor D. Alvarenga, who co-authored the paper and participated in Prof. Otto Carlos Duarte’s team.
