A selection of the chair's projects

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.

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.

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

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.
