Brad Karp, Professor of Computer Ssystems and Networks, UCL

Networking has profoundly improved modern life by enabling ubiquitous access to vast stores of information. The Internet already interconnects billions of users and a globally distributed collection of servers. As the next several billion Internet users connect wirelessly and the population of embedded devices increases by orders of magnitude, we face unprecedented scaling challenges. More worryingly still, our success in interconnecting the world's computer systems has done harm. Providing remote reachability for computer systems that run imperfect, vulnerable software puts individuals’ and organizations’ security and privacy at risk. In this talk, Brad Karp will present an array of techniques that enable scalable and secure networks and computer systems.
