Abstract: Software Defined Networking (SDN) is a modern emerging technology in networking. SDN desires to furnish with composite and exclusive networking sources, it needs to decouple of carrier plane and the control plane, and also provides centralized control. The benefits of network programmability, dynamic computing, cost effective, high bandwidth, of SDN applications are discussed, but security has become an important concern. While centralized controller controlling multiple devices, this change in traditional network will be the main impact on network security. In this paper, we discuss about security issues and challenges in SDN architecture planes.
