TEAM 2 - AaaS: ACL as a Service

Question asked by 64264368a on Jan 23, 2016

AaaS: ACL as a Service


Our original ideas:

  Limit traffic flood to specific destination. For example, on the Alibaba’s shopping day of 11th Nov, a flood of traffic would break down servers and waste precious bandwidth.


  To solve this, our first idea is using randomly drop some packets or limit rate. We think these mothods can low down the server's load and Clients will still have a chance to connect to server and get service.



    Firstly, QoS yang and Flow Spec are not supported by XRV right now. Secoundly, It is hard to generate packerts flood in dcloud.


Final Decision :

    ACL yang is support but not fit to our idea. So why not open ACL setting as a Service?

    ACL is useful. It provides a basic level of security for the network offers flow control for network traffic. But Configuration is painful.

There are lots of network devices and configration is error-prone.
