Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • The Internet
  • Computer network
  • Operating system

His main research concerns Computer security, The Internet, Computer network, Network packet and Telnet. His work deals with themes such as Spamming, Computer worm, Network telescope, Denial-of-service attack and Internet privacy, which intersect with Computer security. His work on Internet Standard as part of general The Internet research is often related to Context, thus linking different fields of science.

His Network packet study incorporates themes from Bottleneck, Real-time computing and Internet access. The concepts of his Telnet study are interwoven with issues in Poisson distribution, Burstiness, Exponential distribution and Stub. His File Transfer Protocol study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Passive monitoring, Variation, Security policy, Source code and syslog.

His most cited work include:

  • Wide area traffic: the failure of Poisson modeling (3427 citations)
  • Stream Control Transmission Protocol (1985 citations)
  • Bro: a system for detecting network intruders in real-time (1982 citations)
