All along changing connectivity requirements and new technologies have increased the complexity and dynamism of distributed system, thus presenting tough challenges for the network management and the network security. As a result new ways for monitoring and managing of security events are required. We present a novel idea how to exploit the software defined networking (SDN) and the real-time network anomaly detection to an efficient whole that offers for an operator both, a view of the security state of the network and the ability to immediately react to the changed situation. We use the man-inthe-middle attack detection as an example.
