In the current
technological perspective, IoT is turning “heterogeneous networks” into “super-heterogeneous
networks” of intelligent devices, thus, securing it becomes very complex. There
are different methods of providing security to a network available today but
none is infallible. SDN being an intelligent networking paradigm which can
rapidly and automatically reconfigure network devices, reroute traffic and
apply authentication and access rules can open up a way for better security and
access control mechanisms. In this solution, an attempt has been made to devise
a method of providing security to IoT using SDN.
