The combination of traditional processors and Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA) is shaping the future networking platform for intensive computation in resource-constrained networks and devices. These networks present two key challenges of security and resource limitations. Lightweight ciphers are suitable to provide data security in such constrained environments. Implementing the lightweight PRESENT encryption algorithm in a reconfigurable platform (FPGAs) can offer secure communication service and flexibility. This paper presents hardware acceleration of security primitives in SDN using NETFPGA-10G. We implement an efficient design of the PRESENT algorithm for faster, smaller and lower power consumption hardware circuit using Verilog. We evaluate the performance of the hardware and software implementations of PRESENT. Experimental results prove that the proposed hardware design is a viable option for use in resource constrained devices in future networks and their applications.
