Security Engineering Research Group specializes in security and service oriented architectures. Our areas of focus are remote attestation via Trusted Computing standards on ubiquitous and mobile platforms. Our research proposes behavioral paradigm for remote attestation.

The purpose of this blog is to share the knowledge among different IT professionals in Pakistan for Software Engineering and specifically for Security Engineering. It also serves as our drawing board and brainstorming tool. Lately we have also started our wiki based knowledge base at http://serg.imsciences.edu.pk/wiki SERG Wiki

Hi,

I’m a graduate student in MS and am currently looking for a topic related to network security to do y thesis. More specifically, I am interested in the area related to IDS and packet analysis.

However, I have not seem “new” development in this area. All the research papers I read are fairly old. Do any of the members here know what areas in network security is is being actively researched and whether packet analysis (rule based or anomaly based) is still worth researching .

I would appreciate any information or references to resources to further my research.

Thank you for your help

Let’s see now. This isn’t my area. Maybe shazkhan can help you on this. I’ve mailed him. He’ll get back to you.

As a general rule, I’d say you need to search for some literature: try scholar.google.com or ACM or IEEE site if you have access to their content.

The thing is that IDS activities and research shifted to Mandatory Access Control or simply giving kernel some understanding of access control.
My personal research is on applying the concepts of MAC to a distributed environment. This is somewhat different than packet analysis. And packet analysis is more or less not feasible. One can analyse to the point of firewalling and iptables. There are some advance techniques which can go to lots of details. And then one can apply integrity measurements. So these are some things that are hot in research area. You can email me for details.

shazkhan,
Is it possible for you to provide your email?
I can’t seem to find it on this site.
I would like to further this discussion with you.

I have registered for an ACM account and have been reading the literature on IDS and packet analysis that I can find. However, there is just a tremendous amount of information to take in and am trying to limit my search into areas that are of interest and need researching on in the field of network security. I haven’t even heard of scholar.google.com (thk)

What I’ve found out about so far is exactly shazkhan has mentioned, and research is moving away from this type of analysis but to what I’m not sure, and am hoping to find out. I’m just now coming back into this research area and when I left packet analysis was the “hot” thing

Thanks for the input

Shaz, i gave you your skaoth’s email address. Make sure you delete your email address from the comment after a day or two if you don’t want to get bogged with spam.

Dear we are doing R&D not to improve the industry directly but to improve the potential engineers that study in our BS and MS programs. Secondly we are not interested to benefit institution the way you think we should because our priority is the student and the R&D community.

We do provide consultancy to the institution for introducing paper less offices and we have promised training with a bearable deal but unfortunately fundings are reduced so much due to floods that the intitutions are no longer able to spend on improvements and they would like to maintain what they currently offer.
