Abstract

See full text

In one embodiment, a device receives a network policy based upon, at least in part, a physical network, and configures a design of an industrial network overlay on the physical network based upon, at least in part, the network policy. The configuring, according to the techniques herein, may generally include: determining a number of virtual local area networks (VLANs) within the industrial network overlay; determining which devices of the physical network are on which VLAN; determining placement of at least one virtual firewall within the industrial network overlay; and determining at least one communication path for the industrial network overlay between at least two devices.
