Hi, I'm Xin JIN, a graduate student in Department of Computer Science, Princeton University. I'm working with Professor Jennifer Rexford. I received my B.S. in computer science and B.A. in economics from Peking University in 2011.
ResearchI have a broad research interests in networking and distributed systems. Currently I'm working on topics related to software-defined networks, cellular/wireless networks, middleboxes.
- Scalable Cellular Core Network Archietcture: This project tries to rethink cellular core network architecture. We want to design a scalable architecture that can supports fine-grained policies for mobile devices in cellular core networks.
- Modular Applications in Software Defined Network: Network management is very complex and involves a wide variety of management tasks. We want to design a system that can transparent resolve conflicts of different network applications so as to enahnce modularity.
- Ensemble Routing for Data Center Networks: As today's data centers have hundreds of thousands of servers, scalability is a main design goal for data center networks. We propose ensemble routing, which greatly reduces management overhead and is scalable to manage a huge amount of traffic flows.
- Virtual Switching to Improve Cloud Security: Sharing the server and network infrastructure in the cloud creates new vulnerabilities, where one tenant can attack another by compromising the underlying hypervisor. We design a system that supports virtualized networking using software switches without a hypervisor.
