§ Configuring and troubleshooting server load balancing based on L3, L4 and L7 parameters.

§ Configuring and troubleshooting Local (VRRP) and Global Redundancy (DR site).

§ Assist customers on WebEx to set up complex architectures, for e.g., intensive server load balancing, ISP load balancing, Global and Local Triangulations.

§ Configuring and troubleshooting HTTP related service enhancements viz., SSL offloading, Caching & Compression.

§ Extensive use of OpenSSL & Windows Certificate Authority to manipulate SSL ciphers, generate server certs & intermediate certificate chain.

§ Setting up the lab devices to replicate the customer application environment and traffic patterns to reproduce the issue.

§ Coordinating with Tier-4 and R&D for complex issues and reporting as Bug when needed.

§ Used mix of Windows & Linux OSs and their respective tools for generating and manipulating client requests.

§ On security front; worked with customers to configure optimal network security and enhanced security when needed for their network by properly configuring their Intrusion Prevention System.

§ Depending on the customer network architecture (Symmetric or Asymmetric), recommended Network Protection policies (Flood protection, DOS/ DDOS protection)

§ Review the malicious packet(s) and configured custom signature(s) with the help of OMPC offsets in the packets on Intrusion Prevention System for the known attack / vulnerabilities upon customer’s request. For example, Poodle and Heartbleed Vulnerability.

§ Assist customers in mitigating the real time DOS and DDOS attack traffic by analyzing the anomalous traffic deviated from normal and configuring the DDOS Protector in such a way that it creates proper realtime footprints to automatically start blocking the attack.

§ Help customers to understand why attack traffic was not dropped in some cases during the post analysis of DOS attack and helped customer to understand source IPs of an attack and the target attack is looking for.

§ Analyzing Network Forensics for attacks and involving ERT (Emergency Response Team) for immediate assistance.

§ Explain customer the packet flow in the devices and explained the optimal configuration and traffic flow in Load Balancers and Intrusion Prevention Systems so that these devices do not overload or show high CPU


Oct 2011 to Dec 2011

Conducted TCP/IP lab sessions for other Graduate and Undergraduate students and resolved networking issues faced in Lab environment like, configuring routers for RIP, RIPv2, OSPF or static routing, solving connectivity
issues by correcting subnet mask or interface mismatch issues. Also build a desire network topologies as per the course work using proper Cisco Switches 3250 and PCs running Red Hat Linux distribution.

May 2012 to Oct 2012

Helped Prof E. Wolf in writing and publishing his upcoming book by providing him with relevant technical information from IEEE journals. And had many business communications with Ms. Jessica White, Oxford Press
UK about publication permissions and policies on behalf of my Professor.
