Bring Your Own Device, or BYOD, has become the new norm for many enterprise networks; but it also raises security concerns. We present our vision of programmable in-network security, and sketch an initial system design, Poise. Poise has a high-level policy language that can express a wide range of existing and new security policies. These policies can then be compiled to device configurations to collect device/apps information, as well as switch programs in P4 that enforce security inside the network. Our initial results seem promising—Poise runs with reasonable overhead, and it successfully detects policy violations for seven useful BYOD policies.
