You can create a security group in Openstack using either the Horizon Dashboard or the Openstack CLI. Security groups are used to decide which openstack VMs are allowed to talk to each other, so the filtering is usually done on the compute nodes, not the Cumulus switches. The switches shouldn't need any extra configuration beyond what you'd do in a typical Openstack deployment.
