ON TRAFFIC-AWARE PARTITION AND AGGREGATION IN MAPREDUCE FOR BIG DATA APPLICATIONS

ABSTRACT: MapReduce job, we consider to aggregate data with the same keys before sending them to remote reduce tasks. Although a similar function, called combine, has been already adopted by Hadoop, it operates immediately after a map task solely for its generated data, failing to exploit the data aggregation opportunities among multiple tasks on different […]

Network-Based Modeling and Intelligent Data Mining of Social Media for Improving Care

Abstract Intelligently extracting knowledge from social media has recently attracted great interest from the Biomedical and Health Informatics community to simultaneously improve healthcare outcomes and reduce costs using consumer-generated opinion. We propose a two-step analysis framework that focuses on positive and negative sentiment, as well as the side effects of treatment, in users’ forum posts, […]

NEIGHBOR SIMILARITY TRUST AGAINST SYBIL ATTACK IN P2P E-COMMERCE

ABSTRACT: In this paper, we present a distributed structured approach to Sybil attack. This is derived from the fact that our approach is based on the neighbor similarity trust relationship among the neighbor peers. Given a P2P e-commerce trust relationship based on interest, the transactions among peers are flexible as each peer can decide to […]

MAXIMIZING P2P FILE ACCESS AVAILABILITY IN MOBILE ADHOC NETWORKS THOUGH REPLICATION FOR EFFICIENT FILE SHARING

ABSTRACT: File sharing applications in mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) have attracted more and more attention in recent years. The efficiency of file querying suffers from the distinctive properties of such networks including node mobility and limited communication range and resource. An intuitive method to alleviate this problem is to create file replicas in the […]

k-Nearest Neighbor Classification over Semantically Secure Encrypted Relational Data

Abstract Data Mining has wide applications in many areas such as banking, medicine, scientific research and among government agencies. Classification is one of the commonly used tasks in data mining applications. For the past decade, due to the rise of various privacy issues, many theoretical and practical solutions to the classification problem have been proposed […]

Innovative Schemes for Resource Allocation in the Cloud for Media Streaming Applications

Abstract—Media streaming applications have recently attracted a large number of users in the Internet. With the advent of these bandwidth-intensive applications, it is economically inefficient to provide streaming distribution with guaranteed QoS relying only on central resources at a media content provider. Cloud computing offers an elastic infrastructure that media content providers (e.g., Video on […]

IMPROVING WEB NAVIGATION USABILITY BY COMPARING ACTUAL AND ANTICIPATED USAGE

ABSTRACT: We present a new method to identify navigation related Web usability problems based on comparing actual and anticipated usage patterns. The actual usage patterns can be extracted from Web server logs routinely recorded for operational websites by first processing the log data to identify users, user sessions, and user task-oriented transactions, and then applying […]

Improving Physical-Layer Security in Wireless Communications Using Diversity Techniques

Due to the broadcast nature of radio propagation, wireless transmission can be readily overheard by unauthorized users for interception purposes and is thus highly vulnerable to eavesdropping attacks. To this end, physical-layer security is emerging as a promising paradigm to protect the wireless communications against eavesdropping attacks by exploiting the physical characteristics of wireless channels. […]

IDENTITY-BASED ENCRYPTION WITH OUTSOURCED REVOCATION IN CLOUD COMPUTING

ABSTRACT: Identity-Based Encryption (IBE) which simplifies the public key and certificate management at Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) is an important alternative to public key encryption. However, one of the main efficiency drawbacks of IBE is the overhead computation at Private Key Generator (PKG) during user revocation. Efficient revocation has been well studied in traditional PKI […]

IDENTITY-BASED DISTRIBUTED PROVABLE DATA POSSESSION IN MULTI-CLOUD STORAGE

ABSTRACT: Remote data integrity checking is of crucial importance in cloud storage. It can make the clients verify whether their outsourced data is kept intact without downloading the whole data. In some application scenarios, the clients have to store their data on multi-cloud servers. At the same time, the integrity checking protocol must be efficient […]

GENERATING SEARCHABLE PUBLIC-KEY CIPHERTEXTS WITH HIDDEN STRUCTURES FOR FAST KEYWORD SEARCH

ABSTRACT: In this paper proposes Searchable Public-Key Ciphertexts with Hidden Structures (SPCHS) for keyword search as fast as possible without sacrificing semantic security of the encrypted keywords. In SPCHS, all keyword-searchable ciphertexts are structured by hidden relations, and with the search trapdoor corresponding to a keyword, the minimum information of the relations is disclosed to […]

FRIENDBOOK A SEMANTIC-BASED FRIEND RECOMMENDATION

ABSTRACT:  Existing social networking services recommend friends to users based on their social graphs, which may not be the most appropriate to reflect a user’s preferences on friend selection in real life. In this paper, we present Friendbook, a novel semantic-based friend recommendation system for social networks, which recommends friends to users based on their […]

ENERGY EFFICIENT VIRTUAL NETWORK EMBEDDING FOR CLOUD NETWORKS

ABSTRACT: In this paper, we propose an energy efficient virtual network embedding (EEVNE) approach for cloud computing networks, where power savings are introduced by consolidating resources in the network and data centers. We model our approach in an IP over WDM network using mixed integer linear programming (MILP). The performance of the EEVNE approach is […]
