With the explosion of web/internet and more so with clouding permeating all across with wireless access being the norm, security has becoming increasingly important and bigger security threats are looming large. Services are being incapacitated due to hacking and at times are suspected to have support of state agencies. With the advent of Software Defined Networking (SDN), research in computer networking is taking a new dimension. The researchers are committed to the dissemination of knowledge in the core areas of Computer
networks, communication and security.


OBJECTIVES

  • To help students, faculty remain up to date with current trends in network and security.
  • To develop technologies for new products that addresses the real world challenges. The document indicates the focus of the research activities at the Network and Security domain in PES University and profiles the research team, technologies, projects and accomplishments.
  • To encourage collaborative research through working on projects that require expertise in multiple disciplines (such as Cloud computing, Wireless networking, Telecommunications, Data center technologies).
