Cyber Security Lab 

The explosive growth, complexity, adoption and dynamism of cyber space that have enhanced social interaction and expanded ability to productively utilize the environment have also introduced new adversarial threats and challenges to the society. Cyber‐bullying, cyber‐crime, cyber‐terrorism, adversarial state‐sponsored activities, and so on, are all exemplars of malevolent attributes of cyber space. Mitigating these malevolent attributes requires an agile, legal and ethically compliant, interdisciplinary and scientifically‐based research and exploratory development program in cyber security.   The cyber security research challenge over‐all resides within a particularly complex area, being at the intersection of behavioral sciences, formal sciences and the natural sciences. BIT-CIIE coordinates research activities to get end state of a healthy cyber ecosystem. The main challenges for which BIT-CIIE provide solutions are:

  • Improve Signature Management and Signature Quality: A signature is a distillation (usually a hash encoding) of a malicious pattern. Signatures are widely used, for example, to tersely identify cyber threats and, most widely, for the identification of viruses. The challenges identified here aim to improve the quality, effectiveness and timeliness of signature‐based techniques
  • Increase effort on anomaly detection and support discovery: Anomaly detection refers to behaviour that does not conform to expected behaviour or usage patterns. From a cyber security perspective, for example, anomalous traffic patterns in a network could suggest that a system has been penetrated and sensitive data is being exfiltrated. The challenges identified here target areas where anomaly detection and discovery could be materially improved
  • Streaming and event driven analytics to reduce time to action: Streaming analytics refers to the inline analysis of data (e.g., I.P. packets, stock trades, currency trading, health monitoring) so as to rapidly and intelligently respond to evolving situations, potentially in near real time. (There is a spectrum of algorithms, ranging from near real‐time algorithms supporting almost instant response to adversarial situations; through to algorithms that take a longer‐term, almost forensics‐like, perspective. Identifying this algorithmic taxonomy is a research challenge in its own right.)
  • Dynamic defence at the network edge and beyond: A network edge is the location where the processing and enforcement of organizational policies commences. This hard problem focuses on developing dynamic defence techniques that can rapidly interdict network attacks, using both network and host‐based capabilities
  • Cloud (Virtualization): Cloud computing is the delivery of computing resources over a network. Cloud computing brings challenges pertaining to scale, security and privacy. Challenges arise from the evaluation, architecture and design of such systems. Furthermore, there are specific concerns about contagion of malware infections across virtual instances and into the underlying base image.


Solar Energy: Thermal and Photovoltaic Lab

 Government of India announced the National Solar Mission Policy in March 2010. The mission envisages installing 20,000 MW of solar power by 2020. Some of the key drivers for this initiative are abundant availability of solar energy in India, energy security, rapidly increasing energy demand and increasing pressure from international community to curb CO2 emissions. The mission also aims at strengthening indigenous manufacturing capability, and achieving 15 million sq. meters solar thermal collector area by 2017 and 20 million by 2022 and numerous regulatory and policy measures are being formulated to achieve these targets.

There are a handful of companies globally with proven solar thermal technologies for large scale power generation plants. Current designs of these plants utilize specifications provided by a limited number of solar thermal components manufacturers.   A number of new entrants are emerging in component manufacturing, but have to undergo a fairly long development and demonstration period to make inroads in the market. Solar thermal technologies for process heat applications are more widely available, including a few Indian technology suppliers.

Newer solar thermal technologies are making use of unconventional materials like aluminum, and replacing conventionally used materials like copper and steel. Light-weight and stiff, aluminum space frame technologies are increasingly being favored by designers as it reduces initial capital cost and recurring O&M costs for solar trough technologies. There is also increasing interest newer materials for solar reflectors. Similarly, for low temperature solar thermal technologies monolithic structures are proving beneficial than ones using copper tubings on both cost and performance.


Multi agent systems and Solar Micro Grid 

 Microgrid is a localized grouping of electricity sources and loads that normally operate connected to and synchronous with the traditional centralized electrical grid (macrogrid), but can disconnect and function autonomously as physical and economic conditions dictate. Generally, In Microgrid power is supplied by solar inverters and renewable energy resources. Proper synchronizing between microgrid and macrogrid is necessary and a challenging issue. Frequency fluctuations in microgrid may immediately effect macrogrid.


Embedded System Design and Robotics  


 Computing systems are found all over the world. Millions of computing systems are embedded inside larger electronic devices. These are found to be repeating a certain function which often remains totally unrecognized by the user. Any computing system apart from a desktop, laptop or mainframe computer is an embedded computing system. Embedded systems are electronic computer systems that serve domain specific tasks. It is estimated that 98% of computing devices today are embedded systems. Designing embedded systems is one of the fastest growing technical fields and many industrial bodies recognise it as one of the leading forces for future innovations.

 The embedded system designer must construct an implementation that fulfills desired functionality, but a difficult challenge is to construct an implementation that simultaneously optimizes numerous design metrics.
