	att_abstract={{Ideally, enterprise administrators could specify fine-grain policies
that drive how the underlying switches forward, drop,
and measure traffic. However, existing techniques for flowbased
networking rely too heavily on centralized controller
software that installs rules reactively, based on the first packet
of each flow. In this paper, we propose DIFANE, a scalable
and efficient solution that keeps all traffic in the data plane by
selectively directing packets through intermediate switches
that store the necessary rules. DIFANE relegates the controller
to the simpler task of partitioning these rules over the
switches. DIFANE can be readily implemented with commodity
switch hardware, since all data-plane functions can
be expressed in terms of wildcard rules that perform simple
actions on matching packets. Experiments with our prototype
on Click-based OpenFlow switches show that DIFANE
scales to larger networks with richer policies.}},
