BCMS Honours Topic: "Improved security for network clients using OpenFlow."
OpenFlow is a open network protocol used in Software Defined Networking(SDN) which allows for the high level routing decisions of a switch to be separated from its hardware and instead moved to a separate controller running in software. OpenFlow is the protocol by which this separate controller and the switch communicate with one another. Separating the controller from the hardware like this allows for more complex routing of traffic.
The aim of my project is to improve the security and efficiency of network protocols using OpenFlow, initially focusing on improving the security of ARP.
