Advanced Networking Technology and Security (ANTS) Research Lab

The Advanced Networking Technology and Security (ANTS) research lab at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology is home to state-of-the-art research and development of technologies for next-generation networks and critical infrastructures. It includes the Canada Foundation for Innovation-funded security testing facility, a private research cloud environment and a software-defined networking testbed. Ongoing research projects in the lab include:

  • Detection of insiders threats.
  • Dynamic channel allocation for cognitive radio.
  • Intrusion-detection systems for supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) networks.
  • Multimedia delivery and quality of experience in the cloud.
  • Network survivability in large-scale failure scenarios.
  • Privacy and reliability.
  • Secure biometric-access technologies.
  • Service aggregation in wireless infrastructure.
  • Situational awareness systems for critical infrastructures.
  • Smart-city infrastructures.
  • Smart-grid security.
  • Smart homes.
  • Software-defined network (SDN) architectures.
  • Vehicular network security and privacy.

On average, approximately 15 graduate and five undergraduate students collaborate with the research projects at ANTS lab.
