Vulnerability Assessment and Defenses for SDNs

Software Defined Networking (SDN) has fundamentally improved the observability and controllability of computer networks through its logically centralized control plane architecture. However, this new architecture also exposes new attack surfaces due




Additional Info

Our work in proposes a technique for progressive monitoring of a target network whose composition and topology are inherently dynamic, due to potential failures, power losses, network maintenance, or moving-target defence . Through end-to-end probes, the technique in performs a continuous assessment of the network state, consisting of the probabilities that nodes/links are congested or failed, based on a Bayesian optimization approach that selects the most informative paths to probe-based on previous measurements.

Enduser Relevance

This experiment will improve the security and trustworthiness of SDN.
