Deploying a Virtual Network Function over a SDN infrastructure

Network Function Virtualisation is one of the last buzzwords in the networking scenario. Although this functionality is many times related with Software Defined Networks this is not compulsory. For some, NFV can be seen as a new name for an assembly of known technologies, but substituting hardware boxes by Virtual Machines in the dynamic scenario of the slice creation in SDN based infrastructure is quite novel. In this article we will present our experience deploying a Virtualised Network Function to offer access control services (as an output of an AuthN/AuthZ process) on our OpenFlow Enabled Facility (EHU-OEF).
