      Multi-Domain Autonomous mitigation of Cyber Attacks.

      Ralph Koning, Ben de Graaff, Paola Grosso, Robert Meijer, Cees de Laat.

      In this demonstration we let the viewers initiate one of the pre-implemented attacks. The touch interface shows a multi domain network and services. Each domain is autonomous and implements the SARNET control loop to that maintains is own security state. Additionally, domains can collaborate with each other by allowing certain remote actions that fellow collaborators can invoke.
      By adjusting levels of collaboration we demonstrate the effect on response capabilities and response times. Autonomy is achieved by invoking informational requests and defensive actions from the victim. This gives the victim the autonomy to make decisions over its destined traffic and it gives the collaborators the autonomy to decide on how to handle the requests. See:

      Unlocking the Data Economy via Digital Marketplaces; Researching governance and infrastructure patterns in airline context.

      Leon Gommans, Ameneh Deljoo, Joseph Hill, Paola Grosso, Lukasz Makowski, Gerben van Malenstein, Dirk van den Herik, Wouter Kalfsbeek, Teresa Bartelds, Axel Berg, Cees de Laat, Robert Meijer, Tom van Engers.

      Data sharing and digital collaboration in logistics is important for increasing efficiency, lowering costs and lowering pressure on infrastructure and environment. Furthermore, digital collaboration makes the creation of new logistic concepts possible, leading to new business opportunities and providing solutions for challenges like visibility of goods, synchronization of planning among partners and bundling of capacity. A data infrastructure must be established where data sharing among logistic partners is easy and robust and can be set up in an ad-hoc fashion. Agreements for data sharing between partners are secured in the infrastructure, data owners have full control over who has access to what data and for what purpose and a service industry has arisen that offers logistic and infrastructure services on the infrastructure. The infrastructure will maximize business value, comply with various legal requirements whilst allowing partner autonomy, and enhance existing data sharing and storage facilities. See:

      Light Paths and Data Transfer Nodes for Aircraft Maintenance; Data Transfer Node (DTN) Workflows.

      Joseph Hill, Gerbenvan Malenstein, Leon Gommans, Cees de Laat, Paola Grosso.

      Air France-KLM uses a 100 Gbit/s link, connected to Netherlight, to research an aircraft maintenance industry use case. Via this open exchange, Data Transfer Nodes (DTNs) of Air France-KLM in the Netherlands and iCAIR - present in Chicago at StarLight - connect to each other using light paths over their links. In this demonstration, users at SC’17 in Denver will experience the difference in data transfer rates with and without using DTNs. See:
