Hi Kanthi,

I’ve already started the implementation (prototype phase) of such a blueprint, ovs-firewall-driver <https://blueprints.launchpad.net/neutron/+spec/ovs-firewall-driver>.

Hi All,

We are planning to implement quantum security groups using openflows for ovs plugin instead of iptables which is the case now.

Doing so we can avoid the extra linux bridge which is connected between the vnet device and the ovs bridge, which is given as a work around since ovs bridge is not compatible with iptables.

We are planning to create a blueprint and work on it. Could you please share your views on this
