    Future network services in multiple cloud-based environments

    Internet services are becoming a greater part of our daily lives and the more complex the service, the higher the demands placed on the systems and networks behind the services. During this week, 26-30 June, Computer Science at Karlstad University arranged the ACRO 2017 summer school that focused on the control and management of network traffic and latency linked to future network services in multiple cloud-based environments.

    ”The development of network services is moving towards virtualisation and multiple cloud-based environments. This means that more and more services are linked through functions in many different systems and that large volume of data are transported between the systems,” says Andreas Kassler, professor in computer science and one of the summer school organisers.

    PhD student on international Exchange in Tokyo

    Ricardo Santos, research student in computer science at Karlstad University, is one of few PhD students in Sweden offered a part in JSPS (Japan Society for the Promotion of Science) summer program and the opportunity to do a research exchange in Tokyo. During two months, starting in the beginning of June, Ricardo is located in Tokyo, working together with research colleges at Tokyo Institute of Technology.

    Data transfer in mobile networks
    Ricardo Santos work is about optimizing new ways of transporting huge amounts of data within mobile networks. The increasingly amount of data that needs to be transported through mobile networks demands new solutions. Ricardo’s research focus on using wireless networks that operate in high frequencies as a mean of communication for huge amounts of data, though but is highly sensitive to interference and blockage.

    Best Demo Award at IFIP Networking

    The NEAT project won the Best Demo Award at the IFIP Networking conference, in Stockholm (June 12-15, 2017). The Demo was presented by Zdravko Bozakov (Dell EMC) on behalf of all the authors.

    The demo, titled "A NEAT framework for application-awareness in SDN environments", is joint work from KaU and Dell EMC illustrating how NEAT can be integrated in an SDN scenario. The demo shows how, by enabling the OpenDaylight SDN controller to interact with NEAT, policies and path information can be distributed to NEAT-enabled end-hosts to improve the handling of both bulk and latency-sensitive flows."

    The impact of GDPR in higher education

    Associate professor Lothar Fritsch (Karlstad University) will hold a tutorial on privacy compliance at the ImperialCollege in London.

    The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect in May 2018 and will introduce a regulatory framework of new data protection rights for EU citizens. This one-day conference is tailored towards higher education professionals.

    Experts from HE, privacy law and technology will explain how institutions need to change their data policy and will provide examples of best practice.

    Security and privacy in electronic healthcare systems

    All over the world, digital tools are increasingly being used to improve and streamline healthcare services. This does not only lead to positive results, but also creates opportunities for new types of threats regarding information security and privacy.

    Information security and protection of privacy are some of the most important factors in the development of high-quality tools in the healthcare sector. If no attention is paid to these aspects, there is substantial risk that individuals may come to harm in healthcare situations. Leonardo Iwaya, PhD student in computer science at Karlstad University, explores ways of securing information and protecting privacy when using mobile applications in healthcare (mHealth).

    New university course about the General Data Protection Regulation

    About one year from now the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) takes effect, so it is high time for businesses and organisations to start preparing. At Karlstad University, a cutting-edge international distance learning course is being developed on how to handle personal data according to the new regulation.

    “The new data protection regulation brings about significant changes in the way personal data is to be handled. Many organisations have already started to prepare themselves and are well informed about the changes, while others still have a long way to go to fulfil the requirements,” says Tobias Pulls, researcher in IT-security at Karlstad University.
