Within the next years, the research network of the state of Baden-Württemberg (BelWü) will be updated from 10 Gbit/s to 100 Gbit/s. However, a tenfold increase in physical bandwidth will not automatically cause a respective increase regarding quality of experience. First, the underlying technologies—both communications and access protocols, firewalls, intrusion detection systems, terminal devices, and numerous other components—need to be prepared for the 100G era. This is the only way to accomplish the high requirements regarding bandwidth and latency for services like HPC, Cloud Computing, or many other applications in the Big Data realm. Furthermore, security demands in 100G pose an enormous challenge. BelWü needs to meet these new challenges with suitable technical solutions.

Contributions by the Institute of Distributed Systems

One of the core goals of the project is to ensure the same level of security with higher bandwidth. The Institute of Distributed Systems mainly focuses on Intrusion Detection Systems and how they can tackle the challenges of high-speed networks.

Security in and by flexible networks—realised through Software Defined Networking—is another central research area for the Institute of Distributed Systems.
