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]
