HP SDN Net Protector App


HP Net Protector


HP’s Eric Holton, Senior Technical Marketing Engineer for HP FlexCampus Solutions at HP provides an overview of an application that is currently shipping. Internally developed under the code name Sentinel, it has been made commercially available as an IPS that uses OpenFlow to redirect traffic flow and block traffic if malicious activity is detected.

If the user generates too many requests or inadvertently tries to access a site that is known to have malicious content, the traffic is redirected in a manner that notifies the user that there is a problem. At the same time, content flowing from that site is dropped, right at the edge of the network.
