|DPU-Based Smart Interfaces And The Future Of Network Functions And Security At The Edge|
SmartNIC/DPU makers are pushing security control points into the NIC to provide more fine-grained inspection of network activity and application payloads. This hardware represents the next phase of defense-in-depth strategies, but also presents its own challenges.

|Open Networking Can Stress The Support Cycle|
The broad networking market isn’t quite ready for an onslaught of smaller shops who need a turnkey disaggregated solution. That said, there is a more narrow market of folks with the appetite for open networking and disaggregation. These are the shops who see where the ball is going, and want to be there to catch it.
|Overview Of Open Network Linux|
Open Network Linux is a key part of a disaggregated networking stack, sitting in between the bare metal switching hardware underneath and control plane processes on top.

|Understanding Cisco ACI Fabric Forwarding|
One of the most interesting elements of SDN architectures is traffic forwarding. How does traffic get from one point to another in an SDN world? Cisco ACI’s traffic forwarding approach is intriguing in that it neither relies on the controller for forwarding instructions, nor does it rely on a group of network engineers to configure it. Rather, Cisco ACI fabric is a self-configuring cloud of leaf and spine switches that forward traffic between endpoints without forwarding tables being programmed by the Application Policy Infrastructure Controller (APIC). APIC assumes forwarding will happen, worrying instead about policy.

|Whitebox Networking & Cookies – Make Them Yourself Or Buy From The Shop?|
“Most people don’t bake their own cookies,” says Russ White as a metaphor for why whitebox isn’t for everyone. He is right, of course, but how far does this extend? Baking cookies is a simple task that’s easy to learn, uses readily available tools, and gives you control of your cookie recipe. I make biscuits (cookies) occasionally, and I get to choose the ingredients, flavor and presentation. There is plenty of recipes and advice on the Internet. With a few hours of practice, I can make good cookies that are better than store-bought in almost every . . . This content is for Ignition members only.
