CDM paradigm can explain well a wide range of cosmological observations at large scales. Meanwhile, there are still some hints that indicate that new physics beyond the minimal CDM model maybe is needed in order to explain three controversies for CDM paradigm at small scales, cusp vs. core,too-big-to-fail and missing satellites problems. In this talk a solution, self-interacting dark matter, will be discussed,  and a connection with sterile neutrinos would solve some anomalies in neutrino oscillation experiments.
