Ouroboros:Enabling Protocol Independent Forwarding on FLARE
○Liang Li・Akihiro Nakao・Ping Du(The Univ. of Tokyo)
In most cases, SDN programmability refers to the flexibility existing in northbound interface that enables network users to control the behaviors of the networks. However, the lack of flexibility in data plane conversely results in wasting potentially usable information for controlling flows. We propose Ouroboros as a programmable switch logic that not only removes the limitation of regular OpenFlow, but also provides a highly flexible interface for users to conduct application-specific flow control according to packet content at any arbitrary offsets.
