Mr. Sumeet Singh

Mr. Sumeet Singh is a perfect example of combining high quality research with entrepreneurship. During his graduate studies at the University of California, San Diego, he worked on enabling scalable processing of packets in routers (and network appliances) for content processing and security applications. His work primarily focused on creating scalable algorithms that can automatically generate precise content based signatures for network worms. His research led to several patents (pending) on automated worm detection and papers in top conferences such as SOGCOMM, OSDI, ISCA, and INFOCOM. On the basis of his research on “Automated Worm Fingerprinting”, he cofounded NetSift, Inc. which was acquired a year later by Cisco systems. Currently, he is a member of the CTO Group at Cisco Systems. His current research focuses on conceptualizing and designing custom high speed processors that will enable line-rate content inspection, fine-grained network analytics, and anomaly detection capabilities on all links going in and coming out of a switch. He was the lead architect of the first wire-speed 20Gbps content processing and network analytics processor developed by Cisco Systems.
