Looks like a familiar pattern: oldstyle exploits get exploited first
Most crooks and vandals are not particularly innovative, so it makes sense that the first security breaches we see are old familiar schemes tweaked just enough to run on modern tech.  E.g. among the first spam-scams back in the day were the conversion of the centuries-old Spanish Prisoner Con to the Nigerian Prince Scam (other than being promoted from prisoner to prince, there's nothing in it that Robert Peele or  Allen Pinkerton wouldn't have recognized). Later, more sophisticated attacks that depend on the actual nature and structure of the technology come later -- e.g. phishing, fake malware that catches fake viruses, etc.

Which is to say, expect the Wild West IoT to start out with security breaches that Wyatt Earp might have recognized. But that won't last forever. And expect that as NFV/SDN evolves, somebody's going to figure out an exploit that could never have worked, and might not even have been meaningful, in locally run hardware based legacy systems, and blindside a lot of people. (Think how long there were passenger planes before someone realized you could hijack one, or consider the decades in which nobody saw any reason to keep their social security number private).

New Neworks and Similar Challenges
I like SDN/NFV and what they have to offer because they have networking etc. I think that SDN/NFV compliment each other. and we wil need advance security dealing with those type of things.
