Group Information

The NCSRG is a research group that comprises member of staff from the Department of Computer Science, College of Information and Communication Technologies at the University of Dar es Salaam.

Selected Research Areas NCS technologies are undergoing rapid advancements. The last few years have experienced a steep growth in research on different aspects in these areas. Even though these areas hold great promise for our future, there are several challenges that need to be addressed.

Cyber Security Areas

In the network and information security, research activities include:

● Applied Cryptography

● E-government Security,

● Medical Record Security,

● Cloud Computing Security

● Mobile Systems Security,

● Network Forensics

● Privacy Policy enforcement Infrastructures for Pervasive Systems.

Distributed Networks Areas

In distributed networks, the research group has particular interest in the topological analysis, design and development of network related issues. Work in this area includes:

● Network Protocol Design and Analysis

● Network Algorithms Design and Analysis

● Protocol Verification and Validation

● Network Architecture

● Network Programming

● Internetworking

● Mobile Computing

● Network Testing

● Network Management

Multimedia Technologies Areas

It is impossible to talk about networks and the associated technologies without the traffic involved. The types, volumes and characteristics of traffic (media) that use the networks have a great effect on how the networks are designed and managed. Multimedia technologies part of the research group will concentrate on the following areas:

● Multimedia Signal Processing

● Digital Image Processing

● Video codecs

● Video transcoding

● Video/Multimedia quality metrics

● Video traffic (media) quality measurement

● Multimedia Quality of Service

● Multimedia Web Support Services
