Internet War Room Wenke Lee, Nick Feamster, David Dagon, Mustaque Ahamad
Need How many in CS know: GTISC/NTG already have 4 joint projects together on large-scale network (Internet) monitoring –NSF CyberTrust Large Team (CLEANSE) –DARPA SMITE (via BBN) –DHS Botnet Monitoring –NSF Computing Research Infrastructure Need –Shared workspace area for joint projects in networking and security –Showcase for ongoing work and research results
Approach: Internet War Room A common, shared, and workbench-like environment for faculty, staff, students, and guests –Work area for students across areas to meet –Theme/project/problem-focused work area (vs. group-based) Outward-facing eye candy to showcase research activity and results –Glass wall to racks of machines –Flat-panel displays that highlight various activities under study, results, etc. (real-time monitoring, IP heatmaps of spam and botnet activity) –Real-time analysis and data feeds that could be exported to the Web (including CS home page) An integral part of the larger and more ambitious effort in creating an internet security institute
Benefits Easier collaboration across groups Easy, direct access to machines, racks, etc. for experimentation Promote our research excellence –Internal exposure Example to other research groups for running large, cross- disciplinary effort Add cool image to CS research (like what IC has been doing) –External exposure Recruiting: potential faculty/student applicants, etc. Show off to visitors from peer institutions Report/demo to funding agencies Industry: partnership and donation Other potential collaborators
Competition Other universities with similar strengths may try to start a similar effort/institute –CAIDA/UCSD (Savage, Claffy)
Closing Next steps: –Meet with Ellen to discuss the Internet War Room plan in more details –Start working on an NABC (need-approach- benefit-competition) pitch on the Internet Security Institute plan
