Abstract

Firewalls have been typically used to enforce network access control. Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) envisions to implement firewall function as software instance (a.k.a virtual firewall). Virtual firewall provides great flexibility and elasticity, which are necessary to protect virtualized environments. In this poster, we propose an innovative virtual firewall controller, VFW Controller, which enables safe, efficient and cost-effective virtual firewall elasticity control. In addition, we implement the core components of VFW Controller on top of NFV and SDN environments. Our experimental results demonstrate that VFW Controller is efficient to provide safe elasticity control of virtual firewalls.
