Home / Cloud Computing / ONIE based SDN switches aren’t hard to compromise researcher says…
Software-defined switches hold a lot of promise for network operators, but new research due to be presented at Black Hat will show that security measures haven’t quite caught up yet.

Onie is a small, Linux based operating system that runs on a bare-metal switch. A network operating system is installed on top of Onie, which is designed to make it easy and fast for the OS to be swapped with a different one.

Onie is complementary with OpenDaylight, another software-defined networking project designed to give network operators more flexibility with their switch configurations and not lock organizations into using a sole vendor.
