2012 Poster Sessions : Header Space Analysis: Static Checking for Networks

Student Name : Peyman Kazermian
Advisor : Nick McKeown
Research Areas: Computer Systems
Abstract:
Header space analysis is a static checking method for testing computer networks for problems such as forwarding loops, reachability failures and slicing issues in a protocol agnostic way. We can also use this method to design a dynamic and runtime testing mechanism to monitor the health of the network. We can detect and pinpoint problems such as hardware failure, link failure, congestion or resource over-utilization to the exact device and rule that is causing the problem.
