Talaia's Threat Mitigation module allows our customers to create Openflow security rules on the device. This, combined with our detection capabilities, can convert every routing or switching  device in your network into a powerful firewall.

Now, it is important to mention that Mikrotik supports OpenFlow 1.0.0, but current implementation should be considered experimental, that is, NOT production ready.

OpenFlow feature overrides regular packet processing functionality - packets that are received on interfaces that are OpenFlow switch ports, will not pass through the regular networking stack unless OpenFlow controller sets up flows that enable this. Due to this care must be taken to not disable access to the device when configuring OpenFlow. So, we strongly recommend use a dedicated interface for OpenFlow.


RouterOS supports multiple OpenFlow switch instances, each of which can have separate controller(s) and sets of ports.

Switch instance can be added using command:

[[email protected]] > /openflow add name=<switch name> controllers=x.x.x.x

*Talaia will provide the controller IP. 

Switch ports can be added using command:

[[email protected]] > /openflow port add switch=<switch name> interface=<interface name>

* 1 port is enough for Talaia's controller.
