I'm trying to figure out what is the difference between ACLs, Firewall and static rules in FloodLight OpenFlow controller.
Having look at https://floodlight.atlassian.net/wiki/display/floodlightcontroller/Floodlight+REST+API, there are 3 different things I can do about the controller. I can define ACLs, Firewall rules and static entries.
I have a network background and I know that basically ACL = firewall. Now, coming to the OpenFlow and SDN world, it's hard for me to understand the difference between the 3 of them. Can somebody please explain it?
