Testing the CPN (and TLS support)

Unit testing the dataplane is important, but so is testing control plane connectivity.

FAUCET now supports, when testing hardware, that TLS can be used by FAUCET to secure the OpenFlow connection to the switch.

To configure FAUCET for TLS, follow the Ryu instructions at https://github.com/osrg/ryu/blob/master/doc/source/tls.rst.

To test that it works with your hardware, see the the new TLS fields in https://github.com/REANNZ/faucet/blob/master/tests/hw_switch_config.yaml.

There will be additional control plane testing added to the FAUCET test suite over time.
