In current telecommunication (telco) deployments, data center networks do not have visibility into subscriber traffic and cannot apply functions related to the subscriber traffic. Techniques presented herein provide for a methodology through which a General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) Tunneling Protocol (GTP) tunnel ID (TEID) in a packet GTP header can be used as endpoint security group classification criteria. Classifying packets into security groups may allow for aggregating subscriber mobile traffic and for facilitating the enforcement of granular policies.
