Abstract

Is software-defined networking (SDN) friend or foe in terms of security? Drawing on a recent Dagstuhl seminar, the authors discuss SDN's security challenges, debate strategies to monitor and protect SDN-enabled networks, and propose methods and strategies to leverage SDN's flexibility for designing new security mechanisms.
