Cyber Security is essential aboard US Naval ships. With a variety of people taking part in the ship’s network, browsing the web or otherwise, measures must be taken to ensure oversight of each user. The problem is that with the conventional network used today, a network administrator or information technology professional cannot know how many devices are aboard the ship and connected, much less their activity on the network. The solution I used was the implementation of a SSL Proxy in a new network paradigm known as Software Defined Networking (SDN). An SDN simplifies routers, switches and other network devices by adding a centralized controller which allows full visibility of every device on the network, dynamic programmability of traffic flows and full control.
