  • Application-Level QoS: Improving video conferencing quality through sending the best packet next

    McDonald, Ian; Nelson, Richard (IEEE, 2008)
    In a traditional network stack, data from an application is transmitted in the order that it is received. An algorithm is proposed where information about the priority of packets and expiry times is used by the transport ...
  • Cardigan: deploying a distributed routing fabric

    Stringer, Jonathan Philip; Fu, Qiang; Lorier, Christopher; Nelson, Richard; Rothenberg, Christian Esteve (ACM, 2013)
    SDN is an active area for network research, with many organisations exploring the opportunities provided by the de-coupling of network control from packet forwarding. Previous work has suggested that a hybrid networking ...
  • Cardigan: SDN distributed routing fabric going live at an Internet exchange

    Stringer, Jonathan; Pemberton, Dean; Fu, Qiang; Lorier, Christopher; Nelson, Richard; Bailey, Josh; Corrêa, Carlos N.A.; Rothenberg, Christian Esteve (IEEE, 2014)
    Software Defined Networking (SDN) is an active area for network research, with many organizations exploring the opportunities provided by the decoupling of network control from packet forwarding. However, questions remain ...
  • Comparing anomaly detection methods in computer networks

    Löf, Andreas; Nelson, Richard (IEEE Computer Society, 2010)
    This work in progress outlines a comparison of anomaly detection methods that we are undertaking. We are comparing different types of anomaly detection methods with the purpose of achieving results covering a broad spectrum ...
  • Identifying equivalent SDN forwarding behaviour

    Sanger, Richard; Luckie, Matthew John; Nelson, Richard (ACM, 2019)
    Software-Defined Networking (SDN) enables network operators the flexibility to program their own forwarding rules, providing more than one way to achieve the same behaviour. Verifying equivalence between rulesets is a ...

  • Privacy-preserving encoding for cloud computing

    Will, Mark Antony (The University of Waikato, 2019)
    Information in the cloud is under constant attack from cyber criminals as profitability increases; user privacy is also at risk with data being mined for monetary value – the new gold. A single leak could have devastating ...
  • Implementing Internet topology analysis with emphasis on load balancers and using large numbers of vantage points

    Eichler, Stephen John (University of Waikato, 2016)
    This thesis describes a study of load balancing and topology discovery in the Internet. Topology data was collected using variants of Traceroute including Traceroute MDA which provides topology information about load ...
  • RheaFlow: An Improved Software Defined Network Router

    Fayomi, Oladimeji Onaopepo (University of Waikato, 2016)
    An Software Defined Networking (SDN) router translates routing information from a standard routing control plane into forwarding decisions on an SDN-enabled device. This thesis presents the design of RheaFlow an SDN router ...
  • A Scalable and Fault Tolerant OpenFlow Controller

    Sharma, Karthik Neelakanta (University of Waikato, 2015)
    OpenFlow provides a protocol for updating flow tables in switches. Most current OpenFlow deployments rely on a single controller to control all switches. However, as the number and size of production networks deploying ...
  • Techniques for Failure Recovery in a Software-Defined Network

    Lorier, Christopher (University of Waikato, 2014)
    As our lives become ever more dependent on network connectivity, it becomes increasingly more important for networks to be able to overcome the failure of individual components and continue to function. This thesis examines ...
