Title: "SIMPLE-fying Middlebox Policy Enforcement Using SDN"

Presenter: Nabeel Akhtar

Networks today rely on middleboxes to provide critical performance,  
security, and

policy compliance capabilities. Achieving these benefits and ensuring that  
the traffic

is directed through the desired sequence of middleboxes requires significant

manual effort and operator expertise. In this respect, Software-Defined  

(SDN) offers a promising alternative. Middleboxes, however, introduce new  

(e.g., policy composition, resource management, packet modifications) that  

outside the purvey of traditional L2/L3 functions that SDN supports (e.g.,  

control or routing). This paper presents SIMPLE, a SDN-based policy  

layer for efficient middlebox-specific "traffic steering". In designing  
SIMPLE, we take

an explicit stance to work within the constraints of legacy middleboxes and  

SDN interfaces. To this end, we address algorithmic and system design  
challenges to

demonstrate the feasibility of using SDN to simplify middlebox traffic  
steering. In

doing so, we also take a significant step toward addressing industry  

surrounding the ability of SDN to integrate with existing infrastructure  
and support

L4-L7 capabilities.
