cybergamut Technical Tuesday is for cyber professionals to exchange innovative ideas and discuss technical issues of mutual interest. We plan to have a Technical Tuesday event on this topic in the future.

Topic: Distributed Responder ARP: Using SDN to Re-Engineer ARP from within the Network

We present the architecture and initial implementation of distributed responder ARP (DR-ARP), a software defined networking (SDN) enabled enhancement of the standard address resolution protocol (ARP) intended to improve network security and performance by exerting much greater control over how ARP traffic flows through the network as well as over what actually delivers the ARP service. Harnessing the programmability and traffic steering capability of SDN improves the security and performance of ARP by re-engineering it from within the network in a way transparent to the end hosts.

Presented by: Mark Alan Matties, PhD of The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Lab

Dr. Matties has over 20 years experience designing, developing, and deploying computer networks and network security solutions. He is the Chief Scientist in the Communication and Networking Systems group at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab, where he develops and evaluates SDN solutions to improve network security and performance. He holds a B.S. in Chemistry from the University of Michigan, a Ph.D. in Polymer Science from the University of Akron and has done post-doctoral research at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany.
