This document describes a network policy framework (NPF) for ONOS, including its design, implementation and operation. The purpose of this NPF is to provide an abstraction layer that hides the technology-specific details of the control and data planes by providing a human-readable interface that simplifies the enforcement of low-level and technology-specific actions to the network (e.g. installation of OpenFlow rules, constraint monitoring, etc.). This prototype is integrated into the ONOS SDN controller and it is responsible for translating generic policies received through a dedicated REST API into OpenFlow (OF) flow rules.
