Abstract
Software Defined Network (SDN) deals with huge data processing units which possess network management. However, due to centralization behavior ensuring security in SDN is the major concern. In this work to ensure security, a security server has been at its aid to check the vulnerability of the networks and to keep an eye on the packet according to the screening policies. A Secure Shell Connection (SSH) is established by the security server which does a frequent inspection of the network’s logs. Malware detection and the Intrusion Detection System policies are also incorporated in the server for the effective scanning of the packets. In response to a suspicious log or the packets in the SDN network there is a change in the security norms. Hence the proposed work updates the security policies in accordance with the attacker mentality.
Keywords
