Network & Security Department
Networking and Security focuses on distributed computer applications and the underlying communication mechanisms. While the measurement and modeling of network traffic is essential to the design of new algorithms and protocols, security appears to be an emerging component of this activity through the capture and analysis of malicious behavior and the design of new countermeasures both for the distributed software applications and the communication system.
The research in the Networking and Security department focuses on four areas:
- Stochastic Models and Measurements of Internet Traffic
- Software and System Security
- Applied Cryptography, Protocol and Application Security
- Large-scale Distributed Systems
