Fast and Secure Networks

Hi, I’m Prof. Anat Bremler- Barr (Hebrew: ענת ברמלר-בר), computer network scientist. My work is motivated by a desire to improve the reliability and efficiency of the Internet. My research delves into the fundamentals of network algorithmics and networking device design, especially virtualized middleboxes (i.e., network functions). More recently, I’ve been focused on the new network challenges caused by the transformations in the Internet of Things and cloud computing. 

I received my PhD in computer science from Tel Aviv University, graduating with distinction. In 2001, I was co-founder and served as chief scientist at Riverhead Networks Inc., a company providing  mitigation   systems from Denial of Service attacks. The company was acquired by Cisco Systems in 2004, at which time I joined the Efi Arazi School of Computer Science at Reichman University (formerly the Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya). In 2010, I received a prestigious starting grant from the European Research Council for Deep Packet Inspection of Next Generation Network Devices. I am also the founder and director of the Deepness Lab, which focuses on designing reliable and efficient networks and network devices.

In our new research, we present a severe complexity attack on DNS resolvers, where a single malicious query to a DNS resolver can significantly increase its CPU load. As a result of our research work, three common vulnerabilities and exposures (CVEs) were issued by BIND9, Unbound, and Knot resolver implementations.,

More details soon.
