Android Classes inheriting from the Activity superclass

Android Classes inheriting from the Activity superclass Intents and Android context In Android systems, applications run in compartmentalized environments so that they do not impact the behavior of other executions. Intents are part of the exchange mechanism between application resources to inform the system of an intention to access a resource. The Intent class...

AUTHENTICATION HANDOVER AND PRIVACY PROTECTION IN 5G HETNETS USING SOFTWARE-DEFINED NETWORKING

ABSTRACT: Recently, densified small cell deployment with overlay coverage through coexisting heterogeneous networks has emerged as a viable solution for 5G mobile networks. However, this multi-tier architecture along with stringent latency requirements in 5G brings new challenges in security provisioning due to the potential frequent handovers and authentications in 5G small cells and HetNets....

Authenticated Key Exchange Protocols for Parallel Network File Systems

We study the problem of key establishment for secure many-to-many communications. The problem is inspired by the proliferation of large-scale distributed file systems supporting parallel access to multiple storage devices. Our work focuses on the current Internet standard for such file systems, i.e., parallel Network File System (pNFS), which makes use of Kerberos to...

AGGREGATED-PROOF BASED HIERARCHICAL AUTHENTICATION SCHEME FOR THE INTERNET OF THINGS

ABSTRACT: The Internet of Things (IoT) is becoming an attractive system paradigm to realize interconnections through the physical, cyber, and social spaces. During the interactions among the ubiquitous things, security issues become noteworthy, and it is significant to establish enhanced solutions for security protection. In this work, we focus on an existing U2IoT architecture...

A TIME EFFICIENT APPROACH FOR DETECTING ERRORS IN BIG SENSOR DATA ON CLOUD

ABSTRACT: Big sensor data is prevalent in both industry and scientific research applications where the data is generated with high volume and velocity it is difficult to process using on-hand database management tools or traditional data processing applications. Cloud computing provides a promising platform to support the addressing of this challenge as it provides...

A SCALABLE AND RELIABLE MATCHING SERVICE FOR CONTENT-BASED PUBLISH/SUBSCRIBE SYSTEMS

ABSTRACT: Characterized by the increasing arrival rate of live content, the emergency applications pose a great challenge: how to disseminate large-scale live content to interested users in a scalable and reliable manner. The publish/subscribe (pub/sub) model is widely used for data dissemination because of its capacity of seamlessly expanding the system to massive size....

A PROFIT MAXIMIZATION SCHEME WITH GUARANTEED QUALITY OF SERVICE IN CLOUD COMPUTING

ABSTRACT: As an effective and efficient way to provide computing resources and services to customers on demand, cloud computing has become more and more popular. From cloud service providers’ perspective, profit is one of the most important considerations, and it is mainly determined by the configuration of a cloud service platform under given market...

A HYBRID CLOUD APPROACH FOR SECURE AUTHORIZED DEDUPLICATION

ABSTRACT:  Data deduplication is one of important data compression techniques for eliminating duplicate copies of repeating data, and has been widely used in cloud storage to reduce the amount of storage space and save bandwidth. To protect the confidentiality of sensitive data while supporting deduplication, the convergent encryption technique has been proposed to encrypt...

A DISTRIBUTED THREE-HOP ROUTING PROTOCOL TO INCREASE THE CAPACITY OF HYBRID WIRELESS NETWORKS

ABSTRACT: Hybrid wireless networks combining the advantages of both mobile ad-hoc networks and infrastructure wireless networks have been receiving increased attention due to their ultra-high performance. An efficient data routing protocol is important in such networks for high network capacity and scalability. However, most routing protocols for these networks simply combine the ad-hoc transmission...

A DISTORTION-RESISTANT ROUTING FRAMEWORK FOR VIDEO TRAFFIC IN WIRELESS MULTIHOP NETWORKS

ABSTRACT: Traditional routing metrics designed for wireless networks are application agnostic. In this paper, we consider a wireless network where the application flows consist of video traffic. From a user perspective, reducing the level of video distortion is critical. We ask the question “Should the routing policies change if the end-to-end video distortion is...
