Demo participants: Jim Chen,Joe Mambretti (Northwestern University)

The ‘Slice Around the World” initiative was established to demonstrate the powerful potential of designing and implementing world wide environments consisting of Global computational clouds closely integrated with highly programmable networks. The initiative has been established by network research centers/research labs that are participating in multiple next generation networking activities, including those developing large scale distributed experimental network research environment, such as those be implemented by such initiatives as the NSF Global Environment for Network Innovations (GENI), the EU Future Internet Research Environment (FIRE), the Japanese New Generation Internet, the Korean Future Internet initiatives, the German Future Internet Lab (G-Lab), and others. These environments are being developed by researchers for researchers. An important goal for many of the current projects would be to have persistent global environments directly developed and managed by the research community to support their experimental research. This demonstration will show: (1) phase 1 connected sites around the world (2) example nano-science simulation/visualization with distributed sites over this persistent global environments.

The GENI network infrastructure enables security research that has not been possible before due to potential disruption to production networks. This project includes a number of security and privacy experiments that include: WiMAX DDoS analysis with analysis of variance finding vulnerable control parameter settings;Privacy/Anonymity side-channel Hidden Markov Models (HMMs) will be inferred to break anonymity systems;DDoS traffic measurement to map attack severity vs. network topology; Side-channel vulnerability removal protocol tested at scale;DDoS countermeasure testing to neutralize DDoS attacks;

Clemson WiMAX BW Contention Resolution and DDoS demo | Video

Demo participants: Prof. Richard R Brooks, Katherine Cameron (Clemson University)

WiMAX is a growing 4G protocol. Simulations have shown that WiMAX system throughput is sensitive to bandwidth contention parameters. ANOVA analysis of simulated DDoS attacks suggest that two parameters account for over 80% of the variance in system throughput. Using Rutgers University's ORBIT testbeds we are now examining the cross layer affects of these parameters on physical WiMAX systems. This work intends to verify software simulations and to test the fidelity of the ns-2 simulation for wireless systems. Our demo will follow up from GEC13 demo, demonstrating work to date of replicating these results with hardware-in-the-loop, including a summary of our analysis of the indoor and outdoor WiMAX networks that are part of ORBIT and progress since GEC13. A poster and video demonstration were used to present an update of our research and insight to how our experiments our conducted. Please find these two documents attached below.

Occupying GENI with Social Packets

Demo participants: Felix Wu (University of California, Davis)

One of the critical tasks in performing research experiments is to control and re-produce the background and interaction activities in the real world. In this experiment/demonstration, we will introduce a new abstraction for this purpose, called "social packets". Each social packet captured the interactions among a group of social media users on a particular subject within a particular user community. And, users participated over time on many of such related social packets. For instance, some of the packets we have been collecting are from the occupy movement since last year. And, we will show how these social packets are all about (what do they really mean) and how they can be replayed on GENI.

Hive Mind Demo

Demo participants: Sean Peisert,Wenjie Zeng (University of California, Davis)

We will be demonstrating simulations of our of Hive Mind system with regard to a variety of security scenarios. We will also be demonstrating a basic command & control interface for operating and monitoring the Hive Mind software.
