Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

Advanced Networking Technology and Security (ANTS) Research Lab

The Advanced Networking Technology and Security (ANTS) research lab at our university is home to state-of-the-art research and development of technologies for next-generation networks and critical infrastructures. It includes a security testing facility funded by the Canada Foundation for Innovation, a private research cloud environment and a software-defined networking testbed. Ongoing research projects in the lab include:

  • Detection of insider threats
  • Dynamic channel allocation for cognitive radio
  • Intrusion-detection systems for supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) networks
  • Multimedia delivery and quality of experience in the cloud
  • Network survivability in large-scale failure scenarios
  • Privacy and reliability
  • Secure biometric-access technologies
  • Service aggregation in wireless infrastructure
  • Situational awareness systems for critical infrastructures
  • Smart-city infrastructures
  • Smart-grid security
  • Smart homes
  • Software-defined network (SDN) architectures
  • Vehicular network security and privacy

On average, approximately 15 graduate and five undergraduate students collaborate with the research projects at ANTS lab.
