Welcome to the Netgroup at Politecnico di Torino

The Computer Networks Group (NetGroup) is a research group focused on computer networks. It is involved in several teaching activities (courses), research projects (both academic and applied research), and consulting activities. Main research directions include:

  • Network “softwarization” and Fog Computing (Internet Of Things)
    • Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV)
    • Service orchestration and formal methods applied to multi-domain cloud/fog-oriented SDN/NFV-based networks
    • Computing at the edge of the network
  • Network-software engineering
    • Efficient traffic classification and packet processing
    • Model-based and policy-based development
    • Machine Learning-based network management
  • Protocol Engineering
    • Languages for protocol description
    • Formal verification of security protocols
    • Security function allocation (formally ensuring safety and security)
