Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) is a network architecture concept which virtualizes network functions (firewalling, DNS, intrusion detection, etc.). It creates a Virtualized Network Function (VNF) instance that is deployed over a virtualized infrastructure. NFV is introduced as a new methodology that offers several advantages such as the optimization of the resources and the improvement of network efficiency and performance. Despite those advantages, security concerns are an important obstacle for a wide adoption of NFV. New threats and vulnerabilities are inevitably introduced. The objective in this work is to enhance the security of VNF network services by controlling the communication between the different components of the network service through the deployment of access control policies.
