Today's network operators face a major challenge: spam, phishing, denial of service attacks, and even the increasing size and complexity of the network itself have made the network increasingly difficult to manage. At the same time, everyday users are becoming more dependent on the Internet: even minutes of downtime can result in inconvenience or loss for users and companies. Nobody notices when the network works well, but everyone suffers when it doesn't. This paper focuses on developing tools and algorithms that make the network easier to manage, more secure, and more available.
