ONF to Release Guidelines for Deploying Secure SDN Controllers


The Open Networking Foundation’s security working group is preparing to release guidelines for designing and deploying secure software-defined networking (SDN) controllers. The guidelines are currently in review and will be published in June, according to Sandra Scott-Hayward, vice chair of ONF’s security project.

The ONF report also will analyze open source SDN controllers and look at how they compare to other controllers, says Scott-Hayward.

The ONF’s security working group is also working on a guideline on security hardening. This guideline will help members figure out how to select and secure SDN components to configure SDN security. “We aren’t providing specific protocols but giving general guidelines,” Scott-Hayward says.
