Balancing Performance, Accuracy, and Precision for Secure Cloud Transactions

Cloud Computing
Name Balancing Performance, Accuracy, and Precision for Secure Cloud Transactions Technology Dot net, MS SQL Category Cloud Computing Description In distributed transactional database systems deployed over cloud servers, entities cooperate to form proofs of authorizations that are justified by collections of certified credentials. These proofs and credentials may be evaluated and collected over extended time periods under the risk of having the underlying authorization policies or the user credentials being in inconsistent states. It therefore becomes possible for policy-based authorization systems to make unsafe decisions that might threaten sensitive resources. In this paper, we highlight the criticality of the problem. We then define the notion of trusted transactions when dealing with proofs of authorization. Accordingly, we propose several increasingly stringent levels of policy consistency constraints, and present different enforcement approaches to guarantee the trustworthiness of transactions…

Privacy-Preserving Updates to Anonymous and Confidential Databases

Parallel And Distributed System
Name Privacy-Preserving Updates to Anonymous and Confidential Databases Technology Dotnet Category Parallel And Distributed System Description Suppose Alice owns a k-anonymous database and needs to determine whether her database, when inserted with a tuple owned by Bob, is still k-anonymous. Also, suppose that access to the database is strictly controlled, because for example data are used for certain experiments that need to be maintained confidential. Clearly, allowing Alice to directly read the contents of the tuple breaks the privacy of Bob (e.g., a patient’s medical record); on the other hand, the confidentiality of the database managed by Alice is violated once Bob has access to the contents of the database. Thus, the problem is to check whether the database inserted with the tuple is still k-anonymous, without letting Alice and…

Balancing the Tradeoffs between Query Delay and Data Availability in MANETs.

Parallel And Distributed System
Name Balancing the Tradeoffs between Query Delay and Data Availability in MANETs. Technology Dotnet Category Parallel And Distributed System Description In mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs), nodes move freely and link/node failures are common, which leads to frequent network partitions. When a network partition occurs, mobile nodes in one partition are not able to access data hosted by nodes in other partitions, and hence significantly degrade the performance of data access. To deal with this problem, we apply data replication techniques. Existing data replication solutions in either wired or wireless networks aim at either reducing the query delay or improving the data availability, but not both. As both metrics are important for mobile nodes, we propose schemes to balance the tradeoffs between data availability and query delay under different system…

Access Control Mechanisms for Outsourced Data in Cloud

Cloud Computing
Name Access Control Mechanisms for Outsourced Data in Cloud Technology Dot Net Category Cloud Computing Description Abstract. Traditional access control models often assume that the en- tity enforcing access control policies is also the owner of data and re- sources. This assumption no longer holds when data is outsourced to a third-party storage provider, such as the cloud. Existing access control solutions mainly focus on preserving con dentiality of stored data from unauthorized access and the storage provider. However, in this setting, access control policies as well as users' access patterns also become pri- vacy sensitive information that should be protected from the cloud.

The involved parameters are carefully chosen so that as many shares as possible are generated and embedded into an alpha channel plane. The alpha channel plane is then combined with the original grayscale image to form a PNG image. During the embedding process, the computed share…

A Novel Data Embedding Method Using Adaptive Pixel Pair Matching

Image Processing
Name A Novel Data Embedding Method Using Adaptive Pixel Pair Matching Technology Matlab, Dot net Category Image Processing Description This paper proposes a new data-hiding method based on pixel pair matching (PPM). The basic idea of PPM is to use the values of pixel pair as a reference coordinate, and search a coordinate in the neighborhood set of this pixel pair according to a given message digit. The pixel pair is then replaced by the searched coordinate to conceal the digit. Exploiting modification direction (EMD) and diamond encoding (DE) are two data-hiding methods proposed recently based on PPM. The maximum capacity of EMD is 1.161 bpp and DE extends the payload of EMD by embedding digits in a larger notational system. The proposed method offers lower distortion than DE by…

A Keyless Approach to Image Encryption

Image Processing
Name A Keyless Approach to Image Encryption Technology Matlab, Dot net Category Image Processing Description Abstract— Maintaining the secrecy and confidentiality of images is a vibrant area of research, with two different approaches being followed, the first being encrypting the images through encryption algorithms using keys, the other approach involves dividing the image into random shares to maintain the images secrecy. Unfortunately heavy computation cost and key management limit the employment of the first approach and the poor quality of the recovered image from the random shares limit the applications of the second approach. In this paper we propose a novel approach without the use of encryption keys. The approach employs Sieving, Division and Shuffling to generate random shares such that with minimal computation, the original secret image can be…

Name Efficient Privacy-Preserving Range Queries over Encrypted Data in Cloud Computing Technology Java / Dot Net Category Cloud Computing Description With the growing popularity of data and service outsourcing, where the data resides on remote servers in encrypted form, there remain open questions about what kind of query operations can be performed on the encrypted data. In this paper, we focus on one such important query operation, namely range query. One of the basic security primitive that can be used to evaluate range queries is secure comparison of encrypted integers. However, the existing secure comparison protocols strongly rely on the encrypted bit-wise representations rather than on pure encrypted integers. Therefore, in this paper, we first propose an efficient method for converting an encrypted integer z into encryptions of the individual…

Name Analyzing Network Traffic To Detect Self-Decrypting Exploit Code Technology NS2 Category Networking Description ABSTRACT Remotely-launched software exploits are a common way for attackers to intrude into vulnerable computer systems. As detection techniques improve, remote exploitation techniques are also evolving. Recent techniques for evasion of exploit detection include polymorphism (code encryption) and metamorphism (code obfuscation). This paper addresses the problem of detecting in network traffic polymorphic remote exploits that are encrypted, and that self-decrypt before launching the intrusion. Such exploits pose a great challenge to existing malware detection techniques, partly due to the non-obvious starting location of the exploit code in the network payload.

Name Lightweight Sybil Attack Detection in MANETs Technology tcl (NS2) Category Networking Description Fully self-organized mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) represent complex distributed systems that may also be part of a huge complex system, such as a complex system-of-systems used for crisis management operations. Due to the complex nature of MANETs and its resource constraint nodes, there has always been a need to develop lightweight security solutions. Since MANETs require a unique, distinct, and persistent identity per node in order for their security protocols to be viable, Sybil attacks pose a serious threat to such networks.

Name A New Block Compressive Sensing to Control the Number of Measurements Technology Dot net, MATLAB Category Image Processing Description Compressive Sensing (CS) aims to recover a sparse signal from a small number of projections onto random vectors. Be- cause of its great practical possibility, both academia and in- dustries have made efforts to develop the CS’s reconstruction performance, but most of existing works remain at the theo- retical study. In this paper, we propose a new Block Compres- sive Sensing (nBCS), which has several benefits compared to the general CS methods. In particular, the nBCS can be dynamically adaptive to varying channel capacity because it conveys the good inheritance of the wavelet transform.

A New Cell Counting Based Attack Against Tor.

Networking
Name A New Cell Counting Based Attack Against Tor. Technology Dot Net Category Networking Description Various low-latency anonymous communication systems such as Tor and Anonymizer have been designed to provide anonymity service for users. In order to hide the communication of users, most of the anonymity systems pack the application data into equal-sized cells. Via extensive experiments on Tor, we found that the size of IP packets in the Tor network can be very dynamic because a cell is an application concept and the IP layer may repack cells. Based on this finding, we investigate a new cell-counting-based attack against Tor, which allows the attacker to confirm anonymous communication relationship among users very quickly. In this attack, by marginally varying the number of cells in the target traffic at the…

Lossless image compression based on data folding

Image Processing
Name Lossless image compression based on data folding Technology Dot net, MATLAB Category Image Processing Description The paper presents an approach for lossless image compression in spatial domain for continuous-tone images using a novel concept of image folding. The proposed method uses the property of adjacent neighbor redundancy for prediction. In this method, column folding followed by row folding is applied iteratively on the image till the image size reduces to a smaller pre-defined value. For column folding, elements of even columns are subtracted from elements of odd columns. Thereafter, row folding is applied on odd columns in a similar fashion. In row folding, even rows are subtracted from odd rows and the resultant odd rows are used for next iteration. The difference data, thus obtained, is stored in a…

Load Balancing Multipath Switching System with Flow Slice.

Networking
Name Load Balancing Multipath Switching System with Flow Slice. Technology Dot Net Category Networking Description Multipath Switching systems are intensely used in state-of-the-art core routers to provide terabit or even petabit switching capacity. One of the most intractable issues in designing MPS is how to load balance traffic across its multiple paths while not disturbing the interflow packet orders. Previous packet-based solutions either suffer from delay penalties or lead to hardware complexity, hence do not scale. Flow-based hashing algorithms also perform badly due to the heavy-tailed flow-size distribution. In this paper, we develop a novel scheme, namely, Flow Slice that cuts off each flow into flow slices at every interflow interval larger than a slicing threshold and balances the load on a finer granularity. Based on the studies of tens…

A chaotic system based fragile watermarking scheme for image tamper detection

Image Processing
Name A chaotic system based fragile watermarking scheme for image tamper detection Technology Dot net, MATLAB Category Image Processing Description In the past few years, various fragile watermarking techniques have been proposed for image authen- tication and tamper detection. In this paper, a novel chaos based watermarking scheme for image authentication and tamper detection is proposed. Tamper localization and detection accuracy are two important aspects of the authentication watermarking schemes. Our scheme can detect any modifica- tion made to the image and can also indicate the specific locations that have been modified. To improve the security of the proposed scheme two chaotic maps are employed. Since chaotic maps are sensitive to initial values, the corresponding position relation between pixels in the watermarked image and the watermark get disturbed, which helps…

Optimal Power Allocation in Multi-Relay MIMO Cooperative Networks: Theory and Algorithms.

Networking
Name Optimal Power Allocation in Multi-Relay MIMO Cooperative Networks: Theory and Algorithms. Technology Dot Net Category Networking Description Cooperative networking is known to have significant potential in increasing network capacity and transmission reliability. Although there have been extensive studies on applying cooperative networking in multi-hop ad hoc networks, most works are limited to the basic three-node relay scheme and single-antenna systems. These two limitations are interconnected and both are due to a limited theoretical understanding of the optimal power allocation structure in MIMO cooperative networks (MIMO-CN). In this paper, we study the structural properties of the optimal power allocation in MIMOCN with per-node power constraints. More specifically, we show that the optimal power allocations at the source and each relay follow a matching structure in MIMO-CN. This result generalizes the…

Linear distance coding for image classification

Image Processing
Name Linear distance coding for image classification Technology Dot net, MATLAB Category Image Processing Description The traditional SPM approach based on bag-of-features (BoF) requires nonlinear classifiers to achieve good image classification performance. This paper presents a simple but effective coding scheme called Locality-constrained Linear Coding (LLC) in place of the VQ coding in traditional SPM. LLC utilizes the locality constraints to project each descriptor into its local-coordinate system, and the projected coordinates are integrated by max pooling to generate the final representation. With linear classifier, the proposed approach performs remarkably better than the traditional nonlinear SPM, achieving state-of-the-art performance on several benchmarks. Compared with the sparse coding strategy [22], the objective function used by LLC has an analytical solution. In addition, the paper proposes a fast approximated LLC method by…

Handling Multiple Failures in IP Networks through Localized On-Demand Link State Routing

Networking
Name Handling Multiple Failures in IP Networks through Localized On-Demand Link State Routing Technology Java Category Networking Description It has been observed that transient failures are fairly common in IP backbone networks and there have been several proposals based on local rerouting to provide high network availability despite failures. While most of these proposals are effective in handling single failures, they either cause loops or drop packets in the case of multiple independent failures. To ensure forwarding continuity even with multiple failures, we propose Localized On-demand Link State (LOLS) routing. Under LOLS, each packet carries a blacklist, which is a minimal set of failed links encountered along its path, and the next hop is determined by excluding the blacklisted links. We show that the blacklist can be reset when the…

Robust Watermarking of Compressed and Encrypted JPEG2000 Images

Image Processing
Name Robust Watermarking of Compressed and Encrypted JPEG2000 Images Technology Dot net, MATLAB Category Image Processing Description Digital asset management systems (DAMS) generally handle media data in a compressed and encrypted form. It is sometimes necessary to watermark these compressed encrypted media items in the compressed-encrypted domain itself for tamper detection or ownership declaration or copyright management purposes. It is a challenge to watermark these compressed encrypted streams as the compression process would have packed the information of raw media into a low number of bits and encryption would have randomized the compressed bit stream. Attempting to watermark such a randomized bit stream can cause a dramatic degradation of the media quality. Thus it is necessary to choose an encryption scheme that is both secure and will allow watermarking in…

However, while the majority of algorithms proposed in recommender systems literature have focused on improving recommendation accuracy, other important aspects of recommendation quality, such as the diversity of recommendations, have often been overlooked. In this paper, we introduce and explore a number of item ranking techniques that can generate recommendations that have substantially higher aggregate diversity across all users while maintaining comparable levels of recommendation accuracy. Comprehensive empirical evaluation consistently shows the diversity gains of the proposed techniques using several real-world rating datasets and different rating prediction algorithms.

Predicting missing items in shopping cart using fast algorithm

Data mining
Name Predicting missing items in shopping cart using fast algorithm Technology .net Category Data Mining Description ABSTRACT Prediction in shopping cart uses partial information about the contents of a shopping cart for the prediction of what else the customer is likely to buy. In order to reduce the rule mining cost, a fast algorithm generating frequent itemsets without generating candidate itemsets is proposed. The algorithm uses Boolean vector with relational AND operation to discover frequent itemsets and generate the association rule. Association rules are used to identify relationships among a set of items in database. Initially Boolean Matrix is generated by transforming the database into Boolean values. The frequent itemsets are generated from the Boolean matrix. Then association rules are to generated from the already generated frequent itemsets. The association…

A Threshold-based Similarity Measure for Duplicate Detection

Data mining
Name A Threshold-based Similarity Measure for Duplicate Detection Technology .net Category Data Mining Description In order to extract beneficial information and recognize a particular pattern from huge data stored in different databases with different formats, data integration is essential. However the problem that arises here is that data integration may lead to duplication. In other words, due to the availability of data in different formats, there might be some records which refer to the same entity. Duplicate detection or record linkage is a technique which is used to detect and match duplicate records which are generated in data integration process. Most approaches concentrated on string similarity measures for comparing records. However, they fail to identify records which share the semantic information. So, in this study, a thresholdbased method which takes…

Efficient Multi-dimensional Fuzzy Search for Personal Information Management Systems

Data mining
Name Efficient Multi-dimensional Fuzzy Search for Personal Information Management Systems Technology .net Category Data Mining Description With the explosion in the amount of semi-structured data users access and store in personal information management systems, there is a critical need for powerful search tools to retrieve often very heterogeneous data in a simple and efficient way. Existing tools typically support some IR-style ranking on the textual part of the query, but only consider structure (e.g., file directory) and metadata (e.g., date, file type) as filtering conditions. We propose a novel multi-dimensional search approach that allows users to perform fuzzy searches for structure and metadata conditions in addition to keyword conditions. Our techniques individually score each dimension and integrate the three dimension scores into a meaningful unified score. We also design indexes…

Enabling Multilevel Trust in Privacy Preserving Data Mining

Data mining
Name Enabling Multilevel Trust in Privacy Preserving Data Mining Technology .net Category Data Mining Description Privacy Preserving Data Mining (PPDM) addresses the problem of developing accurate models about aggregated data without access to precise information in individual data record. A widely studied perturbation-based PPDM approach introduces random perturbation to individual values to preserve privacy before data are published. Previous solutions of this approach are limited in their tacit assumption of single-level trust on data miners. In this work, we relax this assumption and expand the scope of perturbation-based PPDM to Multilevel Trust (MLT-PPDM). In our setting, the more trusted a data miner is, the less perturbed copy of the data it can access. Under this setting, a malicious data miner may have access to differently perturbed copies of the same…

Slicing A New Approach to Privacy Preserving Data Publishing.

Data mining, Security and Encryption
Name Slicing A New Approach to Privacy Preserving Data Publishing. Technology Java Category Security & Data Mining Description Several anonymization techniques, such as generalization and bucketization, have been designed for privacy preserving microdata publishing. Recent work has shown that general- ization loses considerable amount of information, especially for high-dimensional data. Bucketization, on the other hand, does not prevent membership disclosure and does not apply for data that do not have a clear separation between quasi- identifying attributes and sensitive attributes.

Advance Mining of Temporal High Utility Itemset

Data mining
Name Advance Mining of Temporal High Utility Itemset Technology .net Category Data Mining Description The stock market domain is a dynamic and unpredictable environment. Traditional techniques, such as fundamental and technical analysis can provide investors with some tools for managing their stocks and predicting their prices. However, these techniques cannot discover all the possible relations between stocks and thus there is a need for a different approach that will provide a deeper kind of analysis. Data mining can be used extensively in the financial markets and help in stock-price forecasting. Therefore, we propose in this paper a portfolio management solution with business intelligence characteristics. We know that the temporal high utility itemsets are the itemsets with support larger than a pre-specified threshold in current time window of data stream. Discovery…

A Framework for Personal Mobile Commerce Pattern Mining and Prediction

Data mining
Name A Framework for Personal Mobile Commerce Pattern Mining and Prediction Technology .net Category Data Mining Description In many applications, including location based services, queries may not be precise. In this paper, we study the problem of efficiently computing range aggregates in a multidimensional space when the query location is uncertain. Specifically, for a query point Q whose location is uncertain and a set S of points in a multi- dimensional space, we want to calculate the aggregate (e.g., count, average and sum) over the subset S_ of S such that for each p ∈ S_, Q has at least probability θ within the distance γ to p. We propose novel, efficient techniques to solve the problem following the filtering-and-verification paradigm. In particular, two novel filtering techniques are proposed to…

Sequential Anomaly Detection in the Presence of Noise and Limited Feedback

Data mining
Name Sequential Anomaly Detection in the Presence of Noise and Limited Feedback Technology .net Category Data Mininig Description This paper describes a methodology for detecting anomalies from sequentially observed and potentially noisy data. The proposed approach consists of two main elements: (1) filtering, or assigning a belief or likelihood to each successive measurement based upon our ability to predict it from previous noisy observations, and (2) hedging, or flagging potential anomalies by comparing the current belief against a time-varying and data-adaptive threshold. The threshold is adjusted based on the available feedback from an end user. Our algorithms, which combine universal prediction with recent work on online convex programming, do not require computing posterior distributions given all current observations and involve simple primal-dual parameter updates. At the heart of the proposed…
