|Problem description:|| Most network devices today have the control and data plane within the same physical unit. The individual deveices have little-to-know knowledge of the state of the rest of the network, and makes forwarding decisions based upon the little formation it have.
An emerging architecture to solve this is known as software defined networking (SDN), and is done by separating the control plane and the data plane. One of the leading SDN architectures is OpenFlow, where the control plane is a software running on centralized units. The OpenFlow controller has full knowledge of the entire network, and can make forwarding decisions based on this. When looking at OpenFlow, we want to find out how it can be used for traffic engineering, so that we can maximize utilization of network links. We want to look at how the security is implemented by centralizing the forwarding decision, and how redundancy is achieved.
