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.
On February 14th and 15th, 2019, the 3rd ForDigital Blockchain Workshop will take place at KIT. Researchers and practitioners in the field of Blockchains are invited to discuss challenges and opportunities of blockchain technologies and to talk about work currently being done.
In the paper "Towards Application of Cuckoo Filters in Network Security Monitoring" we study the feasibility of applying the recently proposed cuckoo filters to improve space efficiency for set membership testing in Network Security Monitoring, focusing on the example of Threat Intelligence matching. The work was presented in November 2018 on the 14th International Conference on Network and Service Management (CNSM).
