OpenFlow Sec SDN Security Actuator
The SDN Security Actuator is a middle-ware abstraction service that enables legacy INFOSEC security products and technology to easily integrate into an OpenFlow network stack. The Security Actuator enables security services to communicate high level threat response directives, which are then translated into stateful OpenFlow flow rule insertions to are sent to SE-Floodlight. These directives utilize SE-Floodlight’s Alias Rule Reduction algorithm to ensure that all redirections and blocks cannot be circumvented by flow rules set actions that implement virtual tunnels that would otherwise violate the directive.
The Security Actuator provides a vital service for enabling security applications to focus on identify malicious and infected machines, while shielding them from the low-level implementation details of the OpenFlow network stack.
We provide two reference implementations of an SDN Security Actuator in Java and Perl, both of which implement 11 Security Directives.
