Decentralized Systems and Network Services Research Group

Under the term "Decentralized Systems and Network Services" we understand distributed and networked technical systems that span over more than one administrative domain. Hence, their operation depends on more than one party. Our research focuses on:

  • Blockchains, consensus and peer-to-peer networks
  • Network Security Monitoring
  • Secure and privacy-aware computing in partially trustworthy environments.

2020/10/16: Presentations at Virtual Zeek Week 2020

At Virtual Zeek Week 2020, we presented the Emojifier and the current state of our work on the Packet Analyzer Framework for Zeek. The framework enables the flexible addition of protocols at lower network layers and thus opens up new possibilities for monitoring networked systems, for example in the context of critical infrastructures.

We show which properties are required for the first layer below a payment channel network and that a first layer cannot only be implemented by a blockchain.
