Network Engineering: Technology Transfer Case Study: Advanced Network Security Solutions

Time 10/16/03 08:45AM-10:00AM

Session Abstract

Academic and commercial networks are susceptible to a broad spectrum of
vexing security and operational threats such as distributed denial of
service attacks, zero-day worms, and routing exploits. This talk will
highlight the rise of network infrastructure security threats and describe how an academic research project evolved into a commercial solution for combating such threats. This case study centers on a collaborative research effort between the University of Michigan and Merit Network, Inc., an Internet2 gigaPoP, to develop a
flow-based system for detecting, backtracing and resolving network-wide
anomalies such as DDoS attacks and rapidly propagating worms. The early,
successful deployment of this solution by the Internet2 community led to a
fast-paced transfer of technology to the commercial sector and widespread
deployment in service provider networks throughout North America. The talk
will also describe the use of this technology by Indiana University's
Advanced Network Management Lab (ANML) in conjunction with the Research and Education Network Information Sharing and Analysis Center (REN-ISAC).
