Autonomic security

Thanks to an Italian-fun­ded pro­ject cal­led Autonomic Security, we have inve­sti­ga­ted the secu­ri­ty impli­ca­tions of lar­ge-sca­le, decen­tra­li­zed, open distri­bu­ted systems. Three resul­ts have been publi­shed:

  • Secure peer sam­pling [COPS09][ComNet10]
  • Botnet mode­li­za­tion [ICC10]
  • Security in video strea­ming ser­vi­ces [PPNA11]
