OpenDaylight Establishes Security Team
Four month old security flaws are not an auspicious start for open Software Defined Networking….
The OpenDaylight Project Technical Steering Committee has set up an official security response team following disclosure of a serious vulnerability in the open source SDN controller that went unaddressed four months after it was initially disclosed.
The committee also approved Helium-SR1.1 (Service Release 1.1), which incorporates previously released patches for the security problem, according to an email from Colin Dixon, chair of the OpenDaylight Technical Steering Committee, who posted to the group’s mailing list.
The organization “established an official security response team charged with developing more formal internal processes for dealing with security,” Dixon stated in his email.
