Project Proposals:Dynamic Flow Management

Name

Dynamic Flow Management (DFM)

Repo Name

dfm

Description

One of the promises of SDN is to enable the network operator have fine grained control over traffic patterns. Such fine grained control, especially at a Layer 2-4 flow level, could lead to more efficient network designs and enable network operators to offer value added services to their customers. With this background, Dynamic Flow Management addresses the following problems in an OpenDaylight framework. The first problem is that of large flow load balancing and the second one is that of DDoS mitigation.
