Deploying, Attacking & Securing Software Defined Networks

Deploying, Attacking & Securing Software Defined Networks

Let's get our hands dirty in Software Defined Networking! Whether you're a network engineer or just a netsec enthusiast, this workshop will provide you with tools and guidance to set up, attack, and secure a software defined network from scratch using open-source tools and cloud-based switching software. Each attendee will be given access to a lab environment where they can deploy, test, configure, break, and secure a software defined network. All scripts and deployment instructions will be provided at the end, so you can continue your testing and research back home, or use it to make friends and win bets at the pub.

Prerequisites: Basic networking, knowledge of the OSI model, and basic *nix shell familiarity

Materials: Laptop with internet access, web browser with HTML5 capability
