  • Presentation slides not published
  • This tutorial will trace the "life-cycle" of a bot (compromised machine), from when it was first infected, (the way it was infected, the malware that was used both to exploit it and turn it into a bot), to how it was then used to carry out malicious activities, and finally, to its identification and detection.

16:05: Measuring the quality of Real-Time Internet traffic

  • Presentation slides
  • In the Pacific, Internet connectivity is made possible mostly by high latency/low bandwidth satellite links terminating in low bandwidth local networks. This is a problem for VOIP and other real-time protocols as data transferred from high speed networks in NZ, Australia and the US to low bandwidth in the Pacific encounters variations of delay (jitter) which eventually contribute to congested links. This talk will present current methods used to gain insights into the status of jitter in links between New Zealand and countries such as Canada, Fiji, Tonga, Tuvalu, Cook Islands and Kiribati. We extend our findings by projecting the entropy of jitter over time. Lastly we discuss how network coded TCP could improve voice and data transmission over congested links.
  • Etuate Cocker, PhD Student, University Of Auckland
