OpenFlow Controller Test Suite

Server

The OpenFlow protocol is used for communication between OpenFlow switches and controllers. OpenFlow controller configures and manages the switch, receives events from the switch, and sends packets out the switch using OpenFlow protocol. The OpenFlow channel runs over TCP and can be encrypted using TLS. This test suite can be used to test OpenFlow controller implementations for security flaws and robustness problems.
