ONAP Security Requirements - SDC






SDC is the ONAP visual modeling and design tool. It creates internal metadata that describes assets used by all ONAP components, both at design time and run time.

The SDC manages the content of a catalog, and logical assemblies of selected catalog items --as needed-- to completely define how and when VNFs  are realized in a target environment.  A complete virtual assembly of specific catalog items, together with selected workflows and instance configuration data,  completely defines how the deployment, activation, and life-cycle management of VNFs are accomplished.  Selected sub-assemblies may also be represented in the catalog and may be combined with other catalog items, including other sub-assemblies.

ONAP has adopted the CII (Core Infrastructure Initiative) Badge Program.

This project will focus to address the remaining Security requirements defined by the ONAP SECCOM Community based on JIRA Backlog.

The prioritization of the activities will be discussed with the mentee based on his/her skillset and expectations.
