FRESCO: Modular Composable Security Services for Software-Defined Networks Conference Paper uri icon


  • OpenFlow is an open standard that has gained tremendous interest in the last few years. In this paper we introduce FRESCO, an OpenFlow security application development framework designed to facilitate the rapid design, and modular composition of OF-enabled detection and mitigation modules. FRESCO offers a programming framework that enables security researchers to implement, and compose together, many different security modules.
