Amid the growing tension between Pakistan and India, a Pakistani research paper has received the ‘Best Paper Award’ at the 2nd International Conference on Internet Multimedia Services, Architecture and Applications ( IMSAA-08 ) held in Bangalore, India.
The research paper titled ‘A Comparative Study of Anomaly Detection Algorithms for Detection of SIP Flooding in IMS’ was co-authored by M Ali Akbar, Zeeshan Tariq and Muddassar Farooq of NexGinrc FAST-NU.
The paper was an outcome of the project titled ‘A Bio-inspired Self Defending Security framework for IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS)’, which is funded by the National Information and Communications Technology Research and Development Fund. This project aims to develop an intelligent bio-inspired self-defending/self-healing security framework for IP Multimedia System (IMS) and Next Generation All-IP Networks, and will provide real-time security open source solutions for IMS that can not only detect unique vulnerabilities identified in IMS, but also counter them in real time for IMS architecture and Next Generation All-IP networks.
The focus of this conference was on IMS as a conduit for next generation multimedia service. It solicited papers addressing the research challenges and advances towards a world of converged and intelligent services based on novel applications and extensions to the IMS framework. The IMS is a timely attempt to define a uniform services control layer for next-generation telecommunication networks, and is attracting increased interest from telecom providers and carriers across the world.
National ICT R&D Fund has congratulated the team on receiving the award. “We remain committed to facilitate high-quality ICT initiatives by providing funding opportunities,” says a press release issued by the Fund. The News, 21-Jan-09
