Sorting is among the most fundamental and well-studied problems within computer science and a core step of many algorithms. In this article, we consider the problem of constructing a secure multi-party computing (MPC) protocol for sorting, building on previous results in the field of sorting networks. Apart from the immediate uses for sorting, our protocol(More)
While networked systems hold and generate vast amounts of configuration and operational data, this data is not accessible through a simple, uniform mechanism. Rather, it must be gathered using a range of different protocols and interfaces. Our vision is to make all this data available in a simple format through a realtime search process which runs within(More)
According to WHO, Pharmacovigilance activities are done to monitor detection, assessment, understanding and prevention of any obnoxious adverse reactions to drugs at therapeutic concentration on animal and human beings. However, there is also a growing focus among scientists and environmentalists about the impact of drugs on environment and surroundings.(More)
Network search makes operational data available in real-time to management applications. In contrast to traditional monitoring, neither the data location nor the data format needs to be known to the invoking process, which simplifies application development, but requires an efficient search plane inside the managed system. This paper presents a query(More)
Network search makes operational data available in real-time to management applications. In contrast to traditional monitoring, neither the data location nor the data format needs to be known to the invoking process, which simplifies application development, but requires an efficient search plane inside the managed system.

In this demonstration, we present CloudSearch, a search system for an IaaS cloud. The search system is realized as a network of search nodes with identical capabilities, whereby the nodes run as daemons in the servers that provide cloud services. The nodes form a search plane, which realizes in-network distributed search using an echo protocol. An(More)
Networked systems, such as telecom networks and cloud infrastructures, generate and hold vast amounts of configuration and operational data. The goal of this work is to make all this data available through a real-time search process named network search, which will enable new real-time management solutions. The thesis contains several contributions towards(More)
Information in networked systems often has spatial properties: routers, sensors, or virtual machines have coordinates in a geographical or virtual space, for instance. In this paper, we propose a peer-to-peer design for a spatial search system that processes queries, such as range or nearest-neighbor queries, on spatial information cached on nodes inside a(More)
A large part of operational and configuration information in networks and clouds has graph structure, e.g., virtual network topologies, IP flows, communication links of distributed cloud applications. The final objective of this work is to develop a scalable management system that allows real-time management applications, such as network analytics and(More)
