Despite the immense use of single Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) systems in various applications, it is not yet able to cover large areas with optimized energy consumption. Accordingly, Flying Ad-hoc Network (FANET), as a collaborative groups of UAV s, is tremendously employed in recent research works allowing larger coverage and efficient monitoring. To ensure a secure FANET control, Software-Defined Networking (SDN) based solutions are frequently considered. This work presents and compares the recent SDN-based solutions proposed to reinforce FANET security and reduce its attacks. In addition, open research issues are highlighted with respect to SDN-FANET challenges. © 2022 IEEE.
