OpenDaylight isn't based on another controller, it's as up-stream as it gets. There are a number of other SDN controllers that consume ODL and build on it, like Inocybe’s Infrastructure Controller, Brocade's Vyatta, Extreme Network's SDN Platform and others.

OpenDaylight supports a large number of soutbound plugins for communicating with switches. Good details here.

Thank you Daniel. This helps. This also answers my second question. As I see Helium release has added TLS support.
