The pace of adoption of secure mechanisms in software-defined networking (SDN) has been slow, largely due to traditional solutions' performance overhead and their support infrastructure's complexity. To address these challenges, we propose KISS, a secure SDN control plane communications architecture that includes innovative solutions in the context of key distribution and secure channel support.
