Software-defined mobile network (SDMN) architecture integrates software-defined networks, network functions virtualization, and cloud computing principles in mobile networking environments to transform rigid and disparate legacy mobile networks into scalable and dynamic ecosystems. However, because SDMN architecture separates the control and data planes, it will significantly change the way security is managed and applied for mobile networks. In this article, the authors discuss the security… CONTINUE READING
