Large-Scale Infrastructure for Passive Monitoring

Speaker - Evangelos Markatos, FORTH

Accurate network monitoring systems give rise to a wide variety of new applications including provision of early warning for the detection of Internet worms as soon as they start to spread, detection of Distributed-Denial-of-Service attacks even before they are launched, accurate traffic characterization even for applications that use dynamically generated ports such as peer-to-peer systems, and accurate traffic weather service for GRID-enabled applications.
In LOBSTER we design and deploy a advanced European Infrastructure for accurate Internet traffic monitoring.

Prof. Evangelos Markatos received his diploma in Computer Engineering from the University of Patras in 1988, and the M.S and Ph.D. degrees in Computer Science from the University of Rochester, NY in 1990 and 1993 respectively. Since 1992, he is an associated Researcher of the Inst. of Computer Science of the Foundation for Research and Technology - Hellas, where he is currently the head of the Distributed Computing Systems Laboratory, and the head of the W3C Office in Greece. Since 1994 he is also with the Computer Science Department of the Univ. of Crete, where he is currently an Associate Professor.
