Software Defined Networking decouples the network control plane (or software) and the data plane (or hardware) of associated IP equipment.

Software Defined Networking (SDN) is among the buzzwords of the day. SDN is a new approach to network architecture that will generate dividends to network operators.

Communications Service Providers (CSPs) have set their sights on SDN and network function virtualization (NFV) as the vehicles for achieving an unprecedented, and now increasingly necessary, level of automation and programmability.

The ramifications of implementing a new network architecture are enormous. The purpose of this report is to understand the impact of SDN on network security.
