This paper proposes a new framework leveraging SDN (Software Defined Networking) and SFC (Service Function Chaining) to enhance the collaboration among different SSFs to mitigate large scale attacks. The framework allows SSFs (Security Service Function) from different domains to negotiate and dynamically control the amount of resources allocated for collaboration, in what we call a “best-effort” collaboration mode.
