Based on a whole lot of studies focused on effectively securing the network, two major issues to be focused are physical threats and logical threats. With the Software Defined Networking approach, almost a margin of the above stated threats has been minimized.By its varied approach on decoupling Control and Data Plane, both the physical and logical threats to a network has been partially reduced. However, it does not mean that the entire network is secured. With the expectation on a network is rapidly increasing day by day based on the real time user end technologieslike the Internet of Things [IOT], Advanced Messaging Services, Artificial Intelligence, RFID and much more, the complexity in securing the network in increasing in an Volant angle. In this paper, we attempt to show the difficulties experienced in a SOHO network on the SDN architecture to ensure an optimum level of security addressing the Physical and Logical Threats. The Introduction part gives clarity of the existing SDN implemented SOHO networks followed by an overview on the characteristics of Physical and Logical threats. This paper moves on suggesting an extended user Interaction along with other security measures in a SOHO networkand concluding with the effect of implementing an extended user Interaction.
