Multi-Service Networks Workshop 2020
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the annual UK Multi-Service Networks workshop, that usually takes place at The Cosener's House in Abingdon, was held online instead. My students Mihail Yanev and Vivian Band both gave talks at the workshop, and I'm pleased that Vivian was jointly awarded the Brendan Murphy memorial prize for best PhD student presentation. Many congratulations!
Mihail spoke about work he's been doing as part of his internship at Rakuten Mobile in "Herding the FLOQ: Another Queue Management Proposal". This work is considering active queue management to reduce early packet loss, which can cause a significant performance hit for some flows. Vivian spoke about "Malware and IPv6 Scanning", and the challenges of port scanning the large IPv6 address space to detect vulnerable IoT devices.
