SDN SecureSuite

SDN Securesuite consists of three applications, SDN Privatizer (Securing hosts on an OpenFlow network), SDN Passpartoo (providing guest portal functionality) and SDN ClearViewer (Client event reporting).

SDN Privatizer is a Software Defined Networking application that provides an alternative to the legacy Private VLAN functionality. Private VLANs allow for host isolation within a given VLAN whilst allowing traffic to a dedicated uplink port (gateway). In addition, Private VLAN’s allow for creation of communities within a VLAN. Community members are allowed to communicate with each other. Private VLAN’s functionality is cumbersome to administer. Another limitation is that Private VLAN’s only operate within a given VLAN, in order to setup Private VLAN’s between VLAN’s (across layer 3), it is required to configure Policy Based Routing which makes the functionality even more complex to administer. The goal of SDN Privatizer is to simplify the administration and provisioning of host isolation and communities. SDN Privatizer utilizes OpenFlow as control plane protocol and provides isolation or forwarding between individual hosts, groups of hosts (communities) and subnets. SDN Privatizer also supports this functionality on hosts that span different subnets without requirement for Policy Based Routing. Another great feature of SDN Privatizer is the ability to provide host isolation and forwarding between separated OpenFlow domains. A typical application for this is in a branch environment where the OpenFlow capable devices are connected to non OpenFlow capable devices. By configuring static uplinks, the SDN Privatizer application allows for connecting the OpenFLow domains to non OpenFlow networks.

SDN Passpartoo is a Software Defined Networking application that provides web portal functionality without the requirement for any Radius servers. The application uses DNS and web portal redirection based on pure OpenFlow flows. The application allows for custom web portal page functionality and is very easy to implement without any requirement to configure any web portal redirection on the switches.

Private VLAN's functionality is cumbersome to administer. Another limitation is that Private VLAN's only operate within a given VLAN, in order to setup Private VLAN's between VLAN's (across layer 3), it is required to configure Policy Based Routing which makes the functionality even more complex to administer.

SDN ClearViewer is an application that can collect CMS information from the SDN Controller or team. It collects all client events and stores it in a database. Once stored, the administrator can obtain analytics from the gathered information.
