Fix Recommendation

Deploy DOD PKI certificates to all orchestration systems, management systems, and physical SDN-enabled network elements.

Configure these components to use the certificates to authenticate southbound API management messages.

Check Contents

Review both management and orchestration systems, as well as all SDN controllers and physical SDN-enabled network elements that compose the network virtualization platform (NVP), to determine if certificate-based authentication is used to ensure the authenticity and integrity of southbound API management messages. If southbound API management plane traffic is not authenticated using DOD PKI certificates, this is a finding.
