  • Assessing the Madeira NorthBound Interface

    The Madeira project investigates the application of peer-to-peer technologies to distributed network management. It allows network elements to self- configure and self-heal by autonomously performing management tasks in cooperation with other peers. Madeira features a NorthBound Interface that enables communications with external systems. The Madeira NorthBound Interface uses Web services technology provided by the Apache Pubscribe toolkit. It has been successfully assessed by means of specific tests and experiments verifying all functional requirements. Non functional aspects such as reliability, robustness, security, scalability and dependability have also been validated with quite satisfactory results. XML parsing has been found to represent the main limit to scalability. Several approaches to further improve the dependability of the interface are proposed in the paper.

  • A Secure Northbound Interface for SDN Applications

    Software-Defined Networking (SDN) promises to introduce flexibility and programmability into networks by offering a northbound interface (NBI) for developers to create SDN applications. However, current designs and implementations have several drawbacks, including the lack of extended security features. In this paper, we present a secure northbound interface, through which an SDN controller can offer network resources, such as statistics, flow information or topology data, via a REST-like API to registered SDN applications. A trust manager ensures that only authenticated and trusted applications can utilize the interface. Furthermore, a permission system allows for fine-grained authorization and access control to the aforementioned resources. We present a prototypical implementation of our interface and developed example applications using our interface, including an SDN management dashboard.

  • Transport Northbound Interface: The need for Specification and Standards coordination

    Next generation optical transport networks have high benchmarks for flexibility, reliability, and operational simplicity. These requirements underline a common, technology-independent orchestration paradigm that can be extended to represent and configure specific optical technology attributes. Although, orchestration is an ongoing aspect of the current optical transport network evolution, the meaning and scope of orchestration is often only implied, and various Specification and Standards communities cannot always agree the requirements and objectives. This paper describes the high-level requirements facing optical transport networks to provide well-defined Transport Northbound Interface (T-NBI) for optical resource programmability, control, and management automation. It explores the overall functionality that must be provided, whether encompassed in a single large-scale orchestration wrapper or partitioned into several sub-functions, of which only one component is designated as a transport orchestrator. It highlights the early efforts for optical transport resource modeling across Specification and Standardisation organisations. The paper will report on recent Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) Transport NBI Team Design Team efforts to collaborate across Standards Development Organisations (SDOs) to unify transport interface requirements and objectives. Finally, the paper will highlight use cases and applicability examples, and outline research gaps and challenges, opportunities for researchers, and areas for further collaboration between academia and industry.

  • A novel design of Northbound Interface for WiMAX network management system

    Based on the analysis and comparison of normal network management protocols, which mean SNMP, CORBA and Web services, a novel scheme of Northbound Interface according to JMS specification is proposed in WiMAX network management systems. Detailed procedures and functional entities are designed in this paper. It is proved that the design is markedly superior to other choices, as it can enhance the performance of WiMAX network management system. With the extension of global operation for WiMAX, the design proposed is expected to be applied and implemented in the WiMAX network management system.

  • Improving northbound interface communication in SDWSN

    Software-Defined Wireless Sensor Networking (SDWSN) is an emerging paradigm that seeks to alleviate the inherent resource constraint issues present in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) by adopting a Software-Defined Networking (SDN) approach to the management of WSN. This SDWSN paradigm is said to play a crucial role in both the developing Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm and the development of smart city grids. The northbound and southbound SDWSN interfaces are important for realizing efficient network understanding and programmability, however there has been a lack of attention towards the northbound interface as most work done has been surrounding the southbound interface. Therefore some work is needed to improve the northbound interface so that it may allow for a better degree of network programmability. In order to achieve network programmability and automation, there is a need for a metadata based Application Programming Interface (API). The work done in this paper seeks to improve the northbound interface communications by addressing the issue of a metadata in REST as well as identifying potential platforms for the development of a metadata framework.

  • Towards the Semantic Web Based Northbound Interface for SDN Resource Management

    The northbound interface of SDN is the functional interface exposed by the controller for upper layer applications to implement business logic. Recent studies on northbound interface focus on aspects such as portability, programmability, network virtualization, etc. The rich software features and open architecture offered by SDN have broadened the concept of network resources. Nevertheless, a systematic and abstract SDN resource management framework on a higher-level is yet to be thoroughly studied. This paper studies the Semantic Web based northbound interface for SDN resource management. It proposes a multi-level and fine-grained model of SDN using OWL based on which an SDN network resource management platform, SemSDN, is implemented by means of RDF, SPARQL, etc. SemSDN also implements a non- invasive QoS information collecting mechanism based on LLDP (i.e., the QoS over LLDP scheme) as well as the cost-based top-k shortest paths query extension for standard SPARQL (i.e., the KSPARQL extension). Basic experiment results exhibit SemSDN's applicabilities in network resource management in the context of SDN.

  • BENBI: Scalable and Dynamic Access Control on the Northbound Interface of SDN-Based VANET

    Recently, emerging SDN-based VANET (i.e., vehicular ad hoc network based on software-defined networking) enables VANET management to be programmable and flexible. It introduces SDN controllers to maintain network-wide resources and SDN applications to program configurations through arbitrarily accessing resources via the northbound interface (NBI). However, this brings with it security issues on the NBI, such as network-wide resource exposure and configuration manipulation. Most of the existing works employed permission systems to restrict resource access; these solutions are generally controller- dependent, which means controller codes need to be modified for giving access permissions to external applications. In this paper, we propose a scalable and dynamic access control scheme on the NBI for SDN-based VANET, named BENBI. In the proposed scheme, we dynamically and flexibly control network resources by employing broadcast encryption, rather than altering source codes of the controller or updating permission lists with various degrees of granularity. Moreover, the resources are encrypted during transmission so that they are only available to authorized applications. Finally, we implement a prototype of BENBI. The experimental results demonstrate that the cost of allocating secret keys is independent of the number of SDN entities being appointed, which indicates the scalability of our scheme.
