Centre for Distributed Computing, Networking and Security
The Centre for Distributed Computing, Networking and Security at Napier University is a large and growing research centre with ten RAE-focused academics and many researchers. This group focuses on:
- e-Health. This includes work on RFID in health care (especially for infection tracking), and patient-centric systems. Collaboration: NHS, and many other industry/domain partners.
- Mobile IP. This includes the work on enhanced mobility for devices.
- Group Communications. This includes work on effective group communications.
- Crisis Management Systems. This involves a collaboration between the police, health care and academic on next generation crisis management systems.
- Enhanced security and forensic computing systems. This includes enhanced dynamic performance modelling, enhanced digital forensics systems and oblivious transfer systems.
- Patient-centric health care systems.
- Ad-hoc routing over wireless networks.
- Intelligent intrusion detection systems.
- The usage of mobile agents.
- Location-tracking of mobile devices.
At the core of its work is the successful transfer of knowledge between the research group and professionals, along with its excellent reputation for: its depth of skills; its links with industry and in enterprise; and, in its record on dissemination. It has extensive links with industry, and has developed a novel system for an agent-based system for ad-hoc routing over wireless networks, and innovative methods for device tracking and in content generation.
