  • Publication number: 20210184964
    Abstract: It is presented a method for configuring a network path. The method is performed in a routing control device of a software defined network and comprises the steps of: receiving a first node packet originating from a first node of the software defined network, the first node packet forming part of an ARP exchange between an ARP requester and an ARP responder, the first node packet comprising a request for network properties encoded in a first address; determining a network path through the software defined network; changing a source address of a packet to the ARP requester to be a second address; configuring all switches forming part of the network path, to route packets in accordance with the network path; and configuring an edge switch to replace, for all packets having a destination address being equal to the second address, the destination address with an address of the ARP responder.

  • Publication number: 20210135864
    Abstract: There is provided mechanisms for updating a private key of a host entity. The private key is based on parameters negotiated between the host entity and a key issuer. The host entity further has a group public key that is generated by the key issuer and associated with the private key. A method is performed by the host entity. The method comprises obtaining a need to acquire a new private key. The method comprises, in response thereto, performing a private key update procedure with the key issuer using the public key and the current private key, wherein parameters for the new private key are negotiated with the key issuer. The method comprises generating the new private key using the negotiated parameters.

  • Patent number: 10931654
    Abstract: A method in a network node of a communication network configured to manage command messages from at least one Machine Type Communication, MTC, device manager intended for an MTC device, comprises receiving command messages from the at least one MTC device manager, step (201). One or more command messages are merged into an MTC device message that comprises at least one command message, step (203). Originator information is associated with each command message in the MTC device message, step (205). The MTC device message is sent to an MTC device. The network node may further perform the steps of receiving an MTC device message from an MTC device, the MTC device message comprising at least one response message, step (301).

  • Publication number: 20210044532
    Abstract: Embodiments herein relate to a method performed by a network controller node (130) in a data processing network (100) for enabling routing of data flows to or from a service (150) in the data processing network (100). The network controller node (130) receives information indicating network requirements on the data processing network (100) by a service (150) to be initiated in the data processing network (100). Also, the network controller node (130) determines a network identifier for the service (150) in the data processing network (100) based on the obtained network requirements. Embodiments herein also relate to a method performed by a resource controller node (140) in a data processing network (100) for enabling routing of data flows to or from a service (150) in the data processing network (100). The resource controller node (140) obtains information indicating network requirements on the data processing network (100) by a service (150) to be initiated in the data processing network (100).

  • Patent number: 10313397
    Abstract: The disclosure relates to a method for access control of a data flow in a software defined networking system. The method includes receiving a first packet associated with a first data flow between a client node and a server node, verifying authentication of the first packet, repeating the receiving and verifying for a number of subsequent packets of the first data flow, wherein the number of subsequent packets is set based on type of protocol used for the first data flow and/or a policy set in the controller device, and sending, to an intermediate node along a path of the first data flow, a respective verification message for each successfully verified authentication of the first packet and any subsequent packets, allowing the first packet and any subsequent packets of the first data flow for forwarding.

  • Publication number: 20190028475
    Abstract: Embodiments are directed to using an authentication server (140) to program and reprogram network elements, such as a network node (150), in accordance with software-defined networking techniques in order to establish a traffic flow rule for a communication device (110) or user of the communication device (110). After successfully authenticating a communication device (110) or user, the authentication server (140) and/or network node (150) may use an identifier received at the authentication server (140) in connection with the authentication procedure in order to obtain a traffic flow rule for the communication device (110). The traffic flow rule may be established at the network node (140) or forwarded to a second network node configured to receive network packets from the communication device (110). The first identifier may be any one of a user identifier identifying a user, an application identifier identifying an application, and a device identifier unique to the communication device (110).
