The current Linux bridging code is over 12 years old but it has evolved into a major component of many virtualized cloud infrastructures. This talk will cover recently added feature. The presentation will also announce several new security features that protect the network from hostile guests. Several other software networking solutions like macvlan and Openvswitch will also be discussed.

This is a technical talk intended at developers familiar with networking and/or virtualization.
