Abstract

Software Defined Network(SDN) is a promising technological advancement in the networking world. It is still evolving and security is a major concern for SDN. In this paper we proposed policy based security architecture for securing the SDN domains. Our architecture enables the administrator to enforce different types of policies such as based on the devices, users, location and path for securing the communication in SDN domain. Our architecture is developed as an application that can be run on any of the SDN Controllers. We have implemented our architecture using the POX Controller and Raspberry Pi 2 switches. We will present different case scenarios to demonstrate fine granular security policy enforcement with our architecture.
