INRIA supported Activities
(2004-2010) is an associated team between UC Irvine (Prof. G.Tsudik) and INRIA Planète project-team.
Rapid advances in microelectronics are making it possible to mass-produce tiny inexpensive devices, such as processors, RF-IDs, sensors, and actuators. These devices are already, or soon will be, deployed in many different settings for a variety of purposes, which typically involve tracking (e.g., of hospital patients, military/rescue personnel, wildlife/livestock and inventory in stores/warehouses) or monitoring (e.g., of seismic activity, border/perimeter control, atmospheric or oceanic conditions). In fact, it is widely believed that, in the future, sensors will permeate the environment and will be truly ubiquitous in clothing, cars, tickets, food packaging and other goods.
These new highly networked environments create many new exciting security and privacy challenges. The objectives of the UbiSec associated team is to understand and tackle some of them. More specifically, the proposed project will consider the following three topics: infrastructure-less security, nano-security and anonymous association/routing. The team was prolongated for 3 years in November 2007.
- COMMUNITY Associated team
(2009-2010): PLANETE is associated with the UC Santa Cruz's Jack Baskin School of Engineering. The collaborative project is about communication in heterogeneous networks prone to episodic connectivity.
- Roseate (STIC AmSud):
This project (2008-2009) aims to design realistic models of the physical layer in order to be used in both simulations and experimentation of wireless protocols. In addition to the Planète Project-Team, the partners are Universidad de Valparaiso, Chile, Universidad de Córdoba, Argentina and Universidad Diego Portales, Chile.
- ADT PLECS:
This project (2008-2010) aims at deploying at INRIA Sophia Antipolis center a platform for networking experimentation and simulation open to regional researchers and industrials. Two Dream engineers and one Associate Engineer were attributed to our project-team by INRIA on this project.
- INRIA Grant (Ingénieur Jeune Diplômé, IJD)
The goal is to design an open-source AL-FEC library.
