We try to answer the following question: “Is it possible to detect abnormal behavior in a P4 switch and take corrective measures?”
We try to answer the following question: “Is it possible to detect control-data plane inconsistency in P4 networks?”
I am interested in topics surrounding modern network architectures (On-prem and cloud) including zero trust, monitoring and verification in Software-defined networks (SDNs) and Programming Protocol-independent Packet Processors (P4) networks. I help enterprises in their digital transformation journeys including (re)designing networks involving zero trust and modern SaaS solutions alongwith building systems which ensure rigorous monitoring and verification of Cloud, On-Prem, SDNs and P4 networks.
Prior, I was involved in FP7 Integrated European Union Project UNIFY where I contributed to troubleshooting, monitoring and verification of Service Chains in Carrier-Grade Networks. Currently, I am a project leader of project “Verify: Towards Rigorous Verification and Monitoring of Software-defined Networks (SDNs)”. Project Verify is funded by BMBF grant under Software Campus executives development program.
I am delighted to join Deutsche Boerse Group as Vice President | Expert Enterprise Network Architect. I look forward to own, define and, simplify the network architecture while embracing modern trends in networking such as Zero Trust, Hybrid cloud design and that too in regulatory compliant fashion.
