The SDN & OpenFlow World Congress wrapped up last week in Germany, and we were given access to one of the presentation slides: How OpenFlow-Based SDN Can Increase Network Security by Charles Ferland. With the permission of Charles Ferland from IBM System Networking, SDxCentral is making the slides from the event available to our readers. Here are the details on his presentation:
From SDN & OpenFlow World Congress Pre-Congress Workshop Agenda
This session will focus on the impact caused on existing network security by the introduction of SDN and how to leverage this new technology to make networks more secure without increasing complexity.
Software-Defined Networks are completely changing how network infrastructure are built, operated and maintained, therefore how we secure them must also be revisited.
– Are traditional security issues applicable to SDN ?
– What are the main security threats for SDN?
– How to consider your SDN security in the future?
