Complex Cyber Infrastructure (CCI)

Cyber Infrastructure is rapidly evolving from relatively simple fixed components to programmable and virtualized objects with many degrees of freedom owned and operated by different entities in multiple administrative connected domains. The Systems and Networking Lab does research on four topics in the area CCI.


Cloud-based Infrastructure Services Provisioning
SNE cloud related research are focused on the development of the Inter-Cloud Architecture Framework (ICAF) and its components including federated multi-cloud resource provisioning, intercloud security infrastructure and cloud powered DevOps models. For more information see: dr. Y. Demchenko.

Data Science Framework 
The research in this area continue at the edge of modern DSA technologies, AI, and Big Data infrastructure technologies targeting wide range of stakeholders from academia, European Research Infrastructure, industry and government. For more information see: dr. Y. Demchenko.

Authentication, Authorization, Accounting (AAA) for complex cloud resources provisioning
Current AAA and distributed access control research is focused on distributed access control infrastructure and services for cloud based resources provisioned on demand, continuing with the data centric security models and trust management in virtualized environment that also incorporate trusted computing model architecture.
