Today’s mobile and wireless network are growing faster in size and complex to measure the services. Security is one of the most important aspects for such complex network and needs to be monitored properly to provide early detection of security breaches and Denial of Service attack. Tools that measure such detection of network threats and monitors...

... is an open source sampling technology and traffic measurement and monitoring tool for OpenFlow network [4]. It is a traffic monitoring solution embedded with switch and router of any possible OpenFlow based SDWN. Primary elements of sFlow system consists sFlow agents and sFlow col- lector, illustrated in Fig. 2. Agent is the software process that is remotely configured using a Management Information Base (MIB) within the device. Combining the interface counters and flow samples into sFlow datagrams, these datagrams are sent to the sFlow collector installed in the monitoring host through the SDWN environment using Simple Network Management ...

... sFlow's own collector sets: sFlow-RT, sFlow- Trend, sflowtool, this sampling tool also support the third party collectors: VitalSuit, Peakflow, Kentik Detect, FlowTraq etc., those handle more details of sFlow datagrams [4]. Illustration in Fig. 2 represents the Data Flow Diagram (DFD) of sFlow that uncovers the crucial security risk. sFlow doesn't provide any security mechanism for data flow rather depends on secure third party management environment for sFlow ...


... 3 sFlow sFlow helps to monitor the network, that develops various ways of handling the traffic flows, and to improve the performance of the network which consist of switches and routers. sFlow [12] is an open-source sampling tool used for measuring the traffic which is compatible with OpenFlow network. It consists of sFlow agents and collector. ...
