Bio Sketch


My PhD research is in the general area of computer and network security and more specifically in distributed Internet security, distributed firewalls, intrusion detection and prevention, active attack response, firewall optimization, and high-speed packet classification algorithms. The primary contributions of my research include a novel distributed and active response firewall architecture, a novel technique for implementing fast packet classification in firewall black-listing scenarios, novel network-topology-aware firewall optimization algorithms, and a very novel technique to solve the general problem of d-dimensional packet classifcation for firewalls and general purpose packet filters (such as those found in the common network router).
