Internet & Scalable Systems Metrology Group (ISSMG)

Welcome

The ISSMG works with industry to improve the quality and timeliness of emerging standard specifications for next-generation distributed information systems based upon Internet technologies.  The emphasis of the group is on innovating and applying advanced measurement science to increase the trustworthiness and expand the applicability of potentially disruptive Internet technologies.  

Competencies of the group include: modeling and analysis of emerging Internet technologies, measurement science for scalable information systems, design and evaluation of advanced network test and measurement techniques, and rapid prototyping and empirical measurement of early protocol designs.

Programs/Projects

Border Gateway Protocol - Robustness and Security—This project focuses on Robustness, Security, and Scalability of Internet Routing Infrastructure, in particular, the Border Gateway Protocol (BGP).

Internet Infrastructure Protection (IIP)—The Internet infrastructure is insecure and unreliable, we are trying to fix that.
