You shall not pass! Investigating virtualization of a data diode using SDN

Security in infrastructure is growing increasingly important, this includes keeping your networks secure from unwanted traffic going in and/or protected information from getting out. Data diode is a hardware network device for unidirectional transfer, keep information from getting out, or malicious actors from getting in to a secure or protected network. A new hot topic in computing, Virtualization, is where software is used to act as hardware. This opens up for the possibility of creating a hardware diode, in software. This thesis investigates the combination of hardware diodes and virtualization by proposing two software-defined data diode solutions using SDN (Software Defined Networking) and investigates what properties are needed to keep up with, or even perform better than the hardware data diode. The two solutions, one using the domain specific language P4 and its reference switch, the other one using the controller ONOS and Open vSwitch, are tested. In general, ONOS is performing better than P4 and could performance-wise compete with the hardware data diode. We see that for P4 the more resources available in terms of CPU and RAM the better it performs, while for ONOS the results regarding resources are more divided. Additional functionality in ONOS makes for good usability but opens up more security risks, although in many cases they can be handled with innovation thanks to the design of SDN.

A Study in Describing Complex Words Using Prototype Theory
Sebastian Ragnarsson

My thesis offers new input in the field of generating epithets to aid the comprehension of Swedish texts. For whatever reason, a reader might find certain words in a text difficult to understand. For example, they may never have come across the term moussaka before; however, by the simple expedient of assigning an explanatory epithet - in this case, “the dish” moussaka - they can hopefully continue reading uninterrupted. To do this, obscure phrases are identified and extracted based on word class, shallow token features and the Pareto Principle. An algorithm then extracts appropriate epithets for each word using the Wikipedia categorisation system. Although the algorithm developed for the study achieved underwhelming results when extracting obscure phrases, it did prove excellent at assigning appropriate epithets to nouns and proper nouns. With further research, this process can hopefully be utilised as a tool for improving the readability of any text.
