Fault-Tolerant Networking Infrastructure
Our telecommunication infrastructure requires operational backbone for reliable communication. The network resiliency is very poor when it comes to natural disasters and community internet infrastructures.
Our researchers are exploring reliable and secure heterogeneous mesh networks using Wi-Fi and 4G radios.
Autonomous IoT Security
The “Things” in IoT are typically shipped with default insecure configurations and vulnerable software stacks rendering host networks exposed to attacks, especially small networks with limited administration. The IoT systems need rethinking of configuration and operations management layers.
Our researchers are exploring autonomous network management systems that are specifically designed for IoT.
Software Supply Chain
The software software supply chain process is broken. The software packages are build and shipped at different locations with no single source of truth. Furthermore, the public security patch and disclosure process is currently centralized. With more and more open source software being used in critical infrastructure, it is essential to strengthen the software supply chain.
Our researchers are exploring blockchain technology to create secure software delivery and security operation processes.
