This course maybe of interest to readers, titled “Fog Networks and the Internet of Things”. This course teaches the fundamentals of Fog Networking, the network architecture that uses one or a collaborative multitude of end-user clients or near-user edge devices to carry out storage, communication, computation, and control in a network. It also teaches the […]
[this post is also available as a pdf] The end-to-end principle of the internet is a fallacy. Modern distributed system rely on the cloud rather than deal with the complexity of the edge network. We propose to explore how to provide primitives such as consistency, integrity, accessibility and authentication in the context of edge network […]
Distributed Protocols and Heterogeneous Trust – theory strong paper on adapting Byzantine-tolerant distributed protocols for hetrozenous trust relationships
Things are heating up at the edge network, Matrix.org is startup for a decentralised chat client with a clean JSON API, though it doesn’t seem to have much of a story for dealing with middleboxes.
The January edition of SIGOPS Operating Systems Review is out now and thus is the aptly named “Raft Refloated: Do We Have Consensus?”. This is my first journal paper and I’m really existed to see what the community makes of it. Title: Raft Refloated: Do We Have Consensus? Authors: Heidi Howard, Malte Schwarzkopf, Anil Madhavapeddy and […]
Last week we release a open access preprint of our first paper on the Databox on arXiv, titled “Personal Data: Thinking Inside the Box”. Despite not publishing in a peer reviewed venue, the response has been greater than we expect. Most notability we were featured in the Guardian, a British newspaper known for its pro-privacy and […]
This Harvard course page has a nice reading list to get you started.
This seems like an interesting venue for work on edge network distributed systems. Nice to see that we are not the only ones who think that the edge is area worth researching. CFP: Fog Networking for 5G and IoT workshop >>>>> In conjunction with SECON 2015 <<<<< ========================================= 22 June 2015, SEATTLE – USA […]
I’ve just registered to attend the 2nd Annual Oxbridge Women in Computer Science Conference on 16th March 2015. I may presenting a poster or even giving talk. My submitted abstract is below: Life on the Edge (Network) The internet has abandoned the end-to-end principles on which it was established. With IPv4 addresses depleted, devices are left behind […]
