Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed. By the time these thieves get in, the damage is already done and the network is already compromised. Intellectual property is easily slipped out the back door leaving no trace of forced entry. If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's high time we start thinking the way these thieves think.

A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable.
