Network Protocols

A variety of equipment and software is used behind the scenes of the network that you use day by day. One of their roles is to maintain routes. This means determining the routes for data flowing through the network to a destination, and finding alternative routes to avoid routes currently broken, congested or with faulty equipment. This software is called routing protocol. Correct operation of this protocol enables data flowing through the network to be properly delivered to their destination. But how can we check if the protocol is working correctly? There are methods to check correctness of a protocol, for example model checking and protocol testing . My research focuses on how to improve the efficiency of protocol testing and model checking. We are also conducting research concerning highly reliable protocols that can maintain routes, even if equipment failure and link failure occur, by avoiding such failure autonomously.
