Software Defined Network (SDN) is a new network concept where, unlike a traditional router, the forwarding and control planes are separated from each others. The centralized logical controller for the whole network, which deals with the control plane routing and the forwarding planes, are located in the switches connected. Many efforts have been made to secure and standardize this new architecture. Due to its centralized nature, there are possibilities of security attacks. In this work, we propose the approach to secure SDN network from Switched DDoS attack and ARP poisoning attacks by using Hybrid controller. Flow counting method is used to develop a Hybrid controller for mitigating Switched DDoS attack and ARP poisoning attacks. It is obvious that our developed Hybrid controller can mitigate the Switched DDoS and ARP Poisoning attacks successfully.
