SCIENCE SUPER HIGHWAY CONNECTING TO DATA
KREONET supports high-performance network infrastructure to provide research resources such as diverse science technology information resources, supercomputing, GRID and e-science applications to approximately 200 R&D institutes.
With 17 regional centers across the country, it has developed network infrastructure which enables diverse studies in any places. Based on such network, KREONET has provided collaborative research environments for high-tech applied research activities to domestic researchers and played a key role as a national research network.KREONET will be a great partner and sponsor of all researchers to help them continue R&D activities inside and outside the country and accomplish remarkable achievements. KREONET is a national R&D network which realizes ‘hyper-speed’, ‘hyper-connectivity’ and ‘hyper-convergence’, the core infrastructure of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
Next-generation Ethernet Service – Logic Network
KREONET’s next-generation Ethernet service is a connection-oriented, carrier-graded hybrid networking service provided on L2 layer.
It is a QoS-guaranteed (bandwidth-guaranteed) high-tech research network service which uses standard Carrier Ethernet technologies such as 802.1ad. In particular, Carrier Ethernet provides diverse topological performance-guaranteed, high-price services such as E-LINE, E-TREE and E-LAN in one-to-one (1:1), one-to-many (1:M) and many-to-many (M:N) forms.
It presents network-type integrated R&D environments for users who have asked KREONET’s domestic and international cooperation and provides a teleconferencing system to maximize the network’s utility and utilization.
Specifically, it provides an integrated MCU-based multilateral video conferencing-based research network service as well as software environments. For those who want to use MCU, please contact us for smooth schedule management.
CERT-KREONET has been operated to protect core research information resources in national science and technology from cyber threats which have become more organized and sophisticated.
It minimizes infringement risks for KREONET members and promotes life-cycle protection activities which strengthen their ability to prevent such accident.
- Analysis of situation control and support on response to infringement attack though the construction of a non- system which is operated 24 hours a day all the year round
- Support on the latest infringement threat trends and user difficulties
- Enhancement of KREONET members’ infringement response capability through the spread of cyber crisis warning and emergency situations
- R&D and application of the latest security technologies such as early malicious act warning system and realtime automatic check & visualization of large security events to provide safe high-tech security network services
KREONET fulfills engineering services to improve transmission performances such as network & end-system tuning with a goal of providing the best performances to users who want the transmission of big data at high speeds.
- PerfSONAR-based research network monitoring environments
- Multi-path, end-to-end network performance monitoring
- 16 regional center & major international hub construction & services
※ PerfSONAR: Internet2-ESnet (US)-Geant (Europe) co-development performance monitoring system
It a global roaming service which enables the use of a visiting organization’s wireless network free of charge without getting a temporary certificate from the institute.
Under this mobile access service, eduroam members or linked institutes are able to use a roaming service safely in any places with their account. This service ed in Europe, and it is now available in about 8600 organizations (R&D institutes and colleges) in 54 countries.
Collaboration and Research Environment (COREEN) is a fast, safe and convenient web-based research collaboration service.
COREEN members are able to communicate and share knowledge with peer researchers in realtime, using diverse collaboration tools. It upgrades research collaboration and enhances research productivity and work efficiency. COREEN provides diverse web application, computing and storage resources which are needed for research collaboration as a cloud service. The members of KREONET’s open identity provider service are able to user multiple collaboration services through one-time login. COREEN is aimed to support fast data/information exchange among researchers, quick decision-making and engineering experiments & tests. For this, it provides diverse collaboration tools (e.g., multilateral video conferencing, web seminar, user grouping & opinion collection, web-based file sharing, etc.) and various research resources (e.g., large file storage, experimental/test resources comprised of virtual or bare-metal nodes, etc.).
The Korean Access Federation (KAFE) is a union formed to connect user authentications in research and education fields based on identity federation technology.
Research/educational institutes and related entities are allowed to join the KAFE organized by the Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KISTI). The members of the KAFE are able to use diverse resources and services of other colleges, research institutes and service providers, using their authentication information (ID and password) just as people freely travel around the world with their passport. Identity Federation is a solution in which an web application service grants service access authority based on the results of user authentication performed by the user’s institute and user attribute information unlike the conventional web application service in which user authentication is done based on internal user database.
