Protecting control planes in networking hardware from high rate packets is a critical issue for networks under operation. One common approach for conventional networking hardware is to offload expensive functions onto hard-wired offload engines as ASICs. This approach is inadequate for OpenFlow networks because it restricts a certain amount of flexibility… CONTINUE READING
