Software defined networking (SDN), a new attempt in addressing the existing challenges in the legacy network architecture, is lime-lighted due to its simplified approach in managing the networks and its capability of programmability. In progressing with software defined networks implementation, security remains a high priority focus. The advantage of SDN itself opens a wide ground in posing new security threats and challenges. Focusing on the security of the SDN is a prime factor as it reflects on the growth of SDN technology implementation. This article focuses on the various existing security solutions available for SDN and the real challenge in securing the SDN providing the researchers a paved platform to work on further securing the networks. This article is designed with an introduction on SDN, its architecture, the available security solutions for the network, the leveraging threats and type of attack possibilities in SDN. This article concludes with the requirements of security factors and schemes in SDN.

2. Sdn Architecture Design

This part of the paper discusses in detail about the Design and the security concerns of SDN Architecture. The basic cling between the existing network design and the SDN is its separation of control and data plane and the facility of programmability in the control plane (Xia, 2015).
