Research Title

A Hardware-Accelerated Network Security Framework

Research Summary

My PhD focuses on the design of a security placement framework that utilises the SDN and VNF technologies to allow system operators to provide customised security services to their tenants increasing their capability for dynamic security solutions that can elastically face security threats at the run time. The placement framework is tailored to security functions and aimed at reducing complexity and saving computing and communication resources. The framework provides customised security services to meet the diversity of users in multi-tenant environments.

Research interests:

  • Resource Management
  • Security Network functions
  • Anomaly Detection
  • VNF orchestration
  • Parallel Processing
  • Network-on-chip
