SDN PenTesting
Network Manipulation
A significant attack that happens on the control plane of the Software-Defined Network architecture. An intruder imperils the SDN controller, fabricates fake network data and launches other attacks on the complete network.
Traffic deviation
It befalls to the network elements at the data plane of the SDN. The initiative arbitrates a network component to redirect traffic flows and enable eavesdropping.
Side-Channel Attacks
The network factors at the data plane is the victim of this offence. Timing data, such as the new network connection takes to establish, can inform an adversary if a flow rule exists.
App Manipulation
It happens in the application plane of the SDN. An exploit of app vulnerability could cause malfunction, interruption of service, or snooping of data. An intruder could augment entree with the high privilege to an SDN application and perform illicit transactions.
Denial of Service (DoS) Attacks
The most common attacks and affects all sectors of the SDN. By applying a DoS, an antagonist could cause the reduction or entire disruption of SDN services.
ARP Spoofing Attack
A Man-in-the-middle attack (MiTM) or ARP cache-poisoning. A malicious intruder uses an ARP spoofing to infiltrate the network, sniff packets, transform it and even halt it. It corrupts the network topology data and the topology-aware SDN apps. Protocols such as LLDP or IGMP are other attack-vectors
API Exploitation
The APIs of a software element might hold vulnerabilities that allow a hacker to perform an unapproved disclosure of data. API exploitation happens at the northbound interface and may direct to the disruption of network flows.
Traffic sniffing
A sniffing denunciation is a conventional technique used by the hacker to catch and examine network communication data. Eavesdrop data from network links and steal valuable information. Exploiting unencrypted communications to intercept traffic from and to a central controller. The data occupied could incorporate critical knowledge on flows or transport recognised on the network.
Brute Force Attacks
Password guessing or brute force: It happens on a non-SDN component. With passphrase guessing or brute force, an unofficial user could obtain admittance to the SDN.
