Network verification: Why it's a key component of IBN

Why Network Verification Requires a Mathematical Model

Cover

Network verification is a rapidly emerging technology that is a key part of Intent Based Networking (IBN). Full-feature verification solutions require an underlying mathematical model of network behavior to analyze and reason about policy objectives and network designs.

A mathematical model, as opposed to monitoring or testing live traffic, can perform exhaustive and definitive analysis of network implementations and behavior, including proving network isolation or security rules.

In this paper, learn:

  • How verification can be used in key IT processes and workflows
  • Why a mathematical model is required and how it works
  • Use cases for the Forward Enterprise platform
  • Requirements a mathematical model must meet
