Master’s Degree Dissertation (Portuguese only)

The dissertation addresses the refactoring process of the middleware proposed in a previous project. Refactoring means improving a solution internally while keeping its external behavior. In this work, the previous middleware architecture and working routines were replaced by OpenFlow features. SDN brought automation, autonomy, reliability, agility, security through the protocol’s default working process. OpenFlow counters were used for management purposes and also to provide a thorough network view of the monitored environments considering traffic data of all connected devices.
