Past Projects

Decentralized Anomaly Detection

Today's IT systems used by corporations a caracterized by a steadily growing number of computers and other devices. Furthermore, virtually all devices are connected via networks. Lastly, the complexity of dependencies between computers and services is growing. The named reasons make it difficult to understand, protect and maintain the functionality of computer networks already today.

Automatisiertes Performance-Monitoring

The AutoMon project studies and develops processes to provide cross-layer correlation of network monitoring data in enterprise networks. This allows to detect outages and disruptions in a timely fashion and identify their root causes. To this end the developed system executes automated and visually comprehensible outage analysis. The integrated business intelligence solution provides data for organizational planning and decision making.

Detection of Security Incidents at IXPs

The overall goal of X-Check (Cross-Check) is to provide improved security for ICT-systems by leveraging data from Internet Exchange Points (IXP). X-Check designs and implements a system for the large-scale detection of (a) known security incidents and (b) novel, unconventional anomalies at central Internet nodes.

Interface to the Routing System

I2RS facilitates real-time or event driven interaction with the routing system through a collection of protocol-based control or management interfaces.

SEcure Networking for a DATa Center Cloud in Europe

Within the SENDATE-PLANETS project, all project partners together will design a network architecture and technologies for secure and flexible distributed data centers in close collaboration. The target is to develop security mechanisms for NFV/SDN networks as well as set up, develop, and optimize VNFs and their placement in distributed data centers.

Safe and Privacy-Friendly Cloud Infrastructures

Cloud infrastructures raise concerns regarding privacy, integrity, and security of offsite data. This project employs privacy-by-design techniques using novel developments from cryptography to ensure that these concerns are technically addressed.

Systemic Security for Critical Infrastructures

Entwicklung einer ganzheitlichen Lösung zur Verbesserung der Schutzsysteme für Kritische Infrastrukturen

Customizable and Tenant-aware System for Energy Control

Building as a Service

The BaaS project aims to manage cross-domain control functions in buildings. Due to the isolation of automation systems, this is not available yet. The main goal of the project is to establish an open service platform enabling smart commertial buildings.

Eclectic approach towards network experimentations

In this project, we propose development and experimental evaluation of a new tool for testbed management for Peer-to-Peer (P2P) applications which includes improved support for resource allocation, deployment and state-ofthe-art monitoring over a range of experimental testbeds.

Safe and Secure European Routing

Peering Monitor and Microscopic Analysis of the Internet

The objective of the Peeroskop project is the design and development of a system for the observational analysis of the Internet parts relevant for Germany, as well as the proactive and reactive protection of the backbone routing. Core components of the project are mechanisms for information fusion and information classification based on passive and active measurements which discover vulnerabilities in the Internet peering beforehand and bypass emerging disruptions.

Anomalieerkennung und eingebettete Sicherheit in industriellen Informationssystemen

Measurement- and model-based performance evaluation and speed-up of communications of multiprocessor PC systems in high-speed networks

In order to use PC-systems for high speed data transmission in gigabit and 10 gigabit networks drivers, network protocol stacks and applications need to be improved to fit the hardware architecture and to make use of its provided techniques for parallelization. Goal of the MEMPHIS project is to analyze and develop methods for performance evaluation and improvement of packet and protocol processing on current multiprocessor computer systems.

European Network of Excellence of Internet Science

Network of Excellence to establish the inter- and multi-disciplinary research area of Internet Science.

Security for Future Networks

Flexible network environment for measurements and tests in high-performance networks

The purpose of this project is to develop a flexible testing environment for networking experiments such as functional and performance test of prototype implementations, traffic generation and network measurements, security evaluations. The Netlab testbed provides a dynamically linked network environment where different network scenarios can be realized.
