Software-defined Perimeters: An Architectural View of SDP


Software-defined perimeters (SDP) is an emerging security architecture that restricts network access and connections between allowed elements. With origins in defense IT infrastructure and spreading to enterprise use, it promises to help mitigate a broad set of security vulnerabilities that afflict IT infrastructure protected by conventional perimeter security. SDP serves to identify the source and destination of a network connection and assumes that there is no trust between potential participants and that a secure connection is only granted when explicitly permitted.
