Cybersecurity and Cyber-Physical Systems
Cybersecurity is the state of being protected against the criminal or unauthorized use of electronic data, or the measures taken to achieve this. Cyber-Physical Systems, or "smart" systems, are co-engineered interacting networks of physical and computational components. These systems will provide the foundation of our critical infrastructure, form the basis of emerging and future smart services, and improve our quality of life in many areas.
Dr. Farah Kandah created a a solution to supporting high traffic demand by using Software-Defined Networking (SDN). This network is designed to identify traffic patterns and ultimately building virtual slices. Dr. Kandah included his students in the SDN project by writing simulation experiments, building a physical testbed in the lab, and running experiments to evaluate performance.
In 2019 and moving forward, Dr. Kandah plans on extending his expertise by discovering new areas in the Cybersecurity field and wants to collaborate with his findings.
