The purpose of this assignment is to develop skills to independently think of innovation. In this assignment students will first learn how to develop knowledge based on current state of the art of an emerging knowledge domain. Then they will learn how to identify plausible security issues in this emerging technology and finally learn the skill of adding knowledge to existing domain by theoretically developing the corresponding protection mechanism for a particular issue.
Software Defined Networking (SDN) is a rising concept in computer networking. It is possible to centralize software logically in order to control the behaviour of the network. In contrast to conventional network, in SDN, a network’s control logic is separated from the underlying physical routers and switches. This phenomenon allows network operators to write high-level control programs to specifying the behaviour of the whole network.
This assignment includes three parts
- Literature review on Software Defined Networking (SDN).
- Identify three current or future security issues in SDN.
- Propose a possible solution for one of the threats identified in section(2).
