Hello, Anas Saeed!

I am a fourth year PhD candidate at University of Minnesota Twin Cities and am here to fulfill my sole mission of making clients successful. Been doing web design for top-notch professionals and companies for years now. Got the Android bug also and became a professional in Java and Android app development. Have made numerous apps on android which include apps related to messaging, phone management, wallpapers, images, call, bluetooth etc. Since I am at the forefront of technology( my work relates to 5G) you can be assured with me that I will be able to deliver the best tech solutions possible, be able to assimilate the required knowledge and deliver the project with all requirements satisfied. Due to the nature of my research I have to deal with multi-faceted areas and have to learn new concepts daily. Hence I would be able to tackle any project or difficulty that arise in the projects here and would be to solve it amicably without bugging the client. Which means you will be getting your project done. I know how to deal with tight deadlines since the research work has tight cutoffs and that's why meeting deadlines have become second nature to me. That means that I will always be on time with your projects. .

    NFLambda fundamentally changes the composition and deployment of NFs through the novel use of the actor programming framework. By using the actor framework, we are able to support diverse NF functionality, flexibility, scalability, fault tolerance and have a high veloc- ity for NFs. Furthermore, the use of packet templates allows for type correctness in SFCs at compile time whereas CALF allows for high-performance packet processing across multi- ple CPUs in multiprocessor systems. Therefore, NFLambda provides a powerful framework for the development and de- ployment of future NFs. You can download the report here

    Grizzly In our senior year project we have researched, designed and implemented Grizzly which is an automated malware detection framework based up virtual machine introspection. VMI gives us the ability to gather accurate information from the outside the system due to which it makes uses of the advantages of both HIDS and NIDS while avoiding their disadvantages. Grizzly provides automated signature based malware detection based upon VMI where the signature can be defined in a high level language and hence the complexity is reduced as it is delegated to the framework. We believe that such frameworks can be deployed as as service in public clouds for malware detection using VMI. You can download the report here

    SmarTor SmarTor is a Tor implementation which delivers significant improvements over the current implementation. One of the main benefits of SmarTor is that it does not require any changes in the core infrastructure and only changes on the end client side are required. SmarTor leverages the user history and based on user profile optimally selects relays for circuit construction. Another aspect of SmarTor is that it reduces the entropy of the network by reducing the physical distance between the selected relays. Third, SmarTor takes a user defined variable between 0 and 1 which is a trade-off between latency and anonymity. The algorithm does all of this while taking precautionary measures to avoid traffic correlation attacks.

Worked on a number of Android projects which are the following Validator Android application that finds phone numbers in actual use from a given list. Blocker Call blocker which can filter calls based on contacts, incoming and/or outgoing. Wallpapers Live wallpapers which alternative between different images based on user preference. Bluetooth Com Andoid application for bluetooth child safety device. Code at Github .
