Soft MUD: Implementing Manufacturer Usage Descriptions on OpenFlow SDN Switches



Mudumbai Ranganathan


Manufacturer Usage Descriptions are generalized network Access Control Lists (ACL) that allow manufacturers to declare intended communication patterns for devices (Things). MUD-enabled Things are restricted to only communicate in the manner intended by the manufacturer – thus reducing their potential to launch network DDoS attacks. We present a scalable implementation of the MUD standard on OpenFlow SDN-enabled switches.
