The SDN Connector is the Fortinet response to integrate various SDN solutions with FortiGate as well as FortiManager products. The SDN Connector serves as a gateway bridging SDN controllers and Fortinet devices including FortiGate and FortiManager. The SDN Connector registers itself to the Cisco ACI SDN controller, polls interested objects, and translates them into address objects. The translated address objects and associated endpoints are populated to the FortiGate/FortiManager that are interested in these objects.
The SDN Connector used is version 1.1.3.
