Abstract : Software-defined networking (SDN) is a new paradigm of networking in which the control plane is separated from the data plane. OpenFlow is the most prevalent protocol for communication between the SDN Controller (SDNC) and the packet forwarding device. In the present work, we studied the incorporation of the cognitive elements in the SDNC policy engine. The results were analyzed through modeling and simulation and applied to the chosen scenario of port scanning.
