SDN-assisted containerized security and monitoring components



Quite often, the deployment of components for network monitoring or security purposes constitutes a burden, due to the need for IT teams to perform on-site setup procedures, and/or to manually configure diversified equipment or services. While this approach may still be somehow manageable for contained infrastructures such as LANs, it cannot cope with the scale of certain telecommunications service provider or industrial IoT environments.This paper proposes a solution for flexible virtualized component deployment, which takes advantage of containerized probes, together with SDN-assisted network traffic steering mechanisms. In this scope, the integration of SDN and Docker containers constitutes a relevant development, enabling the creation of probe deployment mechanisms which dismiss the need for physical appliance configuration and/or deployment.
