On Monday, September 30th at 19:30, HaifaSec and Haifux will gather to 
hear a talk by Yonatan Zilpa:

    Software Defined Networking

IMPORTANT: The meeting starts ONE HOUR LATER than usual, and is in Taub 
5 (room has changed as well).


In this talk we will give a brief review on SDN paradigm for networking. 
We start with a brief historical introduction on the evolution of SDN. 
While still an evolving SDN paradigm offers significant benefits. In 
oppose to Interdomain routing the SDN paradigm separates the control 
plane from the data plane this paradigm creates new opportunities and 
challenges. Among the benefit side SDN offers better routing policy 
constraints, easy service deployment, adaptability, security features 
and rapid network development. On the down side, SDN still has issues in 
regards to scalability, reliability and consistency.

We will use mininet, a virtual network environment to create and analyze 
various SDN network topologies. We will discuss on OpenFlow, the first 
standard communications interface defined between the control and 
forwarding layers of an SDN architecture. OpenFlow is a Southbound API 
we will use Northbound API such as pox and pyretic to review SDN 
programming examples.


THIS TIME we meet in Taub building, room 5. For instructions see:

Attendance is free, and you are all invited!
