The performance and QoE analysis of B2-DASH algorithm
by Tanapat Anusas-amornkul, Surawut Moonsin
Abstract: Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP (DASH) protocol provides several video bit rates for each video segment depending on the current network conditions and it can be used for several platforms. However, the adaptive algorithm in DASH can be further improved to gain better performance. Therefore, Bandwidth and Buffer-based (B2)-DASH algorithm is proposed to enhance DASH algorithm using both buffer and bandwidth-based approaches to provide high average video bit rate in fluctuated network conditions. In this paper, the B2-DASH is compared with FDASH algorithm, which is the best adaptive algorithm among others. This work compares the performance in three scenarios, i.e. Low Switching Rate, Fast Switching Rate, and Wi-Fi networks. The performance metrics are average video bit rates, number of interruptions, and resolution changes. B2-DASH parameters are analyzed and the recommended parameter settings are presented for the best performance for each scenario. In term of user experiences for video streaming, Quality of Experience (QoE) is analyzed for both B2-DASH and FDASH algorithms.
From the analysis, B2-DASH outperformed FDASH in all scenarios. The number of resolution changes was enhanced about 22% for Fast Switching Rate and Wi-Fi network scenarios. The parameter adjustment process is necessary when the actual bandwidth is highly fluctuated in order to give better performance to B2-DASH algorithm. Quality of Experience (QoE) was calculated for the FDASH and B2-DASH algorithms and B2-DASH algorithm improved the QoE about 13% over FDASH in the Wi-Fi network scenario.
Keywords: B2-DASH; QoE Analysis; Adaptive Video Streaming Algorithm.
Bandwidth Management Framework for Smart Homes Using SDN: ISP Perspective
by Hung-Chin Jang, Jian-Ting Lin
Abstract: With the increasing number of Internet of Things (IoT) devices and the advance of smart home technologies, not only smart environments like smart homes, smart cities and smart countries become feasible, but also all these devices consume more or less bandwidth in data transmission. In this paper, we propose an SDN (Software Defined Networking) based QoS (Quality of Service) aware bandwidth management framework for thousands of IoT enabled smart homes from ISP perspective. The operational scenario of this research assumes that an ISP should support thousands of smart homes. Each smart home equips with tens of IoT devices with a broad spectrum of functional capabilities, and each smart home exploits a variety of services. The overall system architecture consists of into SDN Smart Home Cloud at ISP side, and massive SDN enabled Smart Homes. The Smart Home Cloud interconnects with Smart Homes through OpenFlow protocol. With this architecture, we first prioritized smart home services into categories by adapting 3GPP LTE QoS Class Identifier (QCI). Then we propose a Bandwidth Allocation for Smart Home (BASH) strategy to calculate appropriate bandwidth for each service category according to distinct QoS requirements. ISP can thus use BASH to optimize bandwidth allocation of aggregated and classified services of smart homes. The experiments are conducted under an SDN-based network environment constructed by Linux based OpenvSwitch, Ryu controller, and Mininet. The experiment results show that the proposed framework can effectively enhance QoS and outperform the traditional ISP bandwidth allocation strategy in terms of average transfer ratio, average throughput, average delay and average jitter.

Bio-inspired Approaches for OFDM Based Cognitive Radio
by Naziha Ali Saoucha, Badr Benmammar
Abstract: Link adaptation algorithms design for OFDM based cognitive radio networks is a challenging task. The main concern is to provide a high Quality of Service for the secondary user while the mutual interference between this last and the primary user persists within a tolerable range. This issue can be formulated as a multiobjective optimization constraint problem. To tackle this optimization problem in a multiobjective constraint framework, in this paper we exploit three of the most recent powerful bio-inspired algorithms: firefly, bat, and cuckoo search. Simulation results revealed that, in contrast to the classical genetic algorithm and particle swarm optimization based link adaptation, our proposed algorithms exhibit better performance in terms of convergence speed and solution quality with saving rates reaching over 98.93% and 46.60%, respectively.

Modified QUIC Protocol (ModQUIC) for Improved Network Performance and Comparison with QUIC and TCP
by Prashant Kharat, Muralidhar Kulkarni
Abstract: Congestion control mechanism is solely responsible for maintaining the performance of streaming data. However, when there is no congestion, a regular delivery window update is followed as a step by step process. The process can be improved by individual window update along with acknowledgment (ACK) as feedback to the server even in the absence of congestion. To achieve maximum throughput and minimum delay, we have suggested modification in the existing handshaking mechanism of Quick UDP Internet Connections (QUIC) protocol. This paper presents an investigation of QUIC protocol performance and proposes a Modified QUIC (ModQUIC): a modification in existing handshaking mechanism of QUIC to reduce control overhead. Chromium server-client model testbed setup results, show that the proposed technique gives stable output and improves performance in terms of overall throughput and delay over QUIC and Transmission Control Protocol (TCP). Performance has been tested for limited (2 Mbps) and sufficient (10 Mbps) link bandwidth in presence of loss. The validation of results has been carried out
with the help of linear regression model. The result show a throughput improvement of 35.66% and 51.93% over QUIC and TCP respectively and also the delay is reduced by 3% to 5% over QUIC and TCP.
Keywords: ModQUIC; QUIC; Network performance; Congestion control.
A General Purpose Deployment Method for Wireless Mesh Network
by Liang Tang, Zhichao Wang, Jun Huang, Li Bian
Abstract: When determining the location of candidate wireless Mesh routers, it is easy to ensure that each mesh client node within the communication range of the candidate router, but it is difficult to ensure that selected Mesh Routers from the candidate routers can constitute a connected network, in addition to the locations of the candidate router can also be placed too much, but too many candidate routers will affect the performance of the algorithm. We propose that all user terminals within at least one wireless router's coverage, and then consider the use of the least Mesh router to cover all of the user's terminals, meanwhile, make the selected Mesh routers connected with each other, and finally make the local connective network communicate with each other. Using the method of combining the genetic algorithm and the minimum spanning tree algorithm, the problem candidate Mesh routers cant construct a connected network was solved and the least selected wireless Mesh routers connected with each other with all mesh clients covered. The feasibility and practicability of the proposed method is verified by Matlab simulation.

Addressing for 6LoWPAN
by Zhengxiong Dou, Xiaonan Wang
Abstract: The paper proposes a distributed stateful IPv6 address configuration scheme for 6LoWPAN wireless sensor networks. In the scheme, each sensor node has the unique IPv6 address space for assignment and can allocate a unique IPv6 address for other nodes so the distributed IPv6 address configuration can be achieved and the address configuration for multiple sensor nodes can be performed in parallel, which improves the address configuration efficiency. In the scheme, the transmission scope of the control packets is limited within one-hop scope so the address configuration cost is reduced, the delay is shortened and the network life span is prolonged. In addition, the paper proposes the IPv6 address recovery algorithm. If a node fails, then the algorithm can automatically maintain and repair the topology of the k-way tree where the failed node locates in order to ensure that its descendants can work normally, which improves the address configuration robustness. The paper analyzes and compares the performance parameters of the proposed scheme and the existing schemes including MANETConf, Strong DAD and LISAA. The simulation results show that the performance of the proposed scheme is better.

Abstract: In order to solve the problem of unsatisfactory monitoring information transmission and large time overhead during conventional building fire monitoring, an optimization method of building fire information monitoring based on adaptive clustering scheduling is proposed. In this method, a channel model for building fire information monitoring is constructed through the bi-directional link transmission control method, and then node deployment for building fire information monitoring is optimized through the shortest path optimization method.

Experimental results show that the proposed method can effectively improve the success rate of fire information monitoring packet forwarding with an average increase of 24.7%, which greatly improves the monitoring information transmission efficiency, and it reduces the time overhead of fire information monitoring by 160s. The proposed method meets the actual needs and ensures the effectiveness of fire monitoring.

by Xian Luo, Rongtao Liao, Guoru Deng, Dangdang Dai, Xiaolan He, Zhixiang Hou
Abstract: In order to improve the anti-interference capability of high-throughput communication and improve the communication quality in performing real-time reliability allocation of highthroughput communication channel in the strong interference environment, a real-time reliability allocation algorithm of high-throughput communication channel under strong interference based on fractionally spaced equalisation and excess mean square error convergence criteria is proposed. In this algorithm, a high-throughput communication channel model is established; optimal symbol interval sampling is carried out to communication signals based on the expansion loss of the channel; the matched filter detection method is adopted for interference suppression of high-throughput communication channel to realise signal spectrum suppression; the fractionally spaced equalisation method is adopted for equalisation scheduling of the channel, and based on the excess mean square error convergence criteria, real-time reliability allocation of highthroughput communication channel under strong interference is realised. Simulation results show that in high-throughput communication channel allocation under strong interference, the method proposed in this paper provides good reliability, which improves real-time channel allocation capability, and channel equalisation, and improves communication quality with relatively low communication output error bit.

CRAM: Clustering-based Resource Availability Measurement in Mobile Peer-to-Peer Systems
by Moufida Rahmani, Mahfoud Benchaiba
Abstract: The peer-to-peer (P2P) systems are an alternative to solve the scalability issue raised by the client/server systems. P2P systems are composed of a set of entities that communicate directly without any central server and constitute scalable and robust distributed systems. In these systems, an entity only has a partial knowledge about the overlay state. The challenge is to provide a global knowledge in the system regarding a feature as the resources availability. In this paper, we propose a Clustering-based Resource Availability Measurement called CRAM for mobile P2P networks which relies on knowledge from all entities. CRAM can be used in resource search and in replication strategies to improve the network performances. Simulation results show that our estimation of availability is close to the real one such as the deviation between them can equal 0.008. They also show that our algorithm reacts efficiently to the appearance or depletion of a resource replica in the system.

by Ji-Wei Qin, Yunpeng Jiang
Abstract: Traditional recommender algorithms mainly use structured data (resource tag, user feature etc.) to depict the user preference and ignore the semantic relations of resources. In this paper, we present a new idea for acquiring users requirement and exploring users preference with Word2vec model (RP- Word2vec) to find the interested and personal resource in the web service. We use Word2vec model to measure the sentiment among keywords and acquire users requirement as accurately as possible; and we treat resources as the input of Word2vec model based on history behaviors and adopt a semantic similarity measuring process to recommend interested and personal resource for the user. The experiments results that the presented RP- Word2vec supports more effective.

by Yang Sun, Zuoqin Shi, Ling Zhao, Sumin Liu, Zhenshi Zhang, Ronghua Du, Zhixiang Hou
Abstract: In order to improve the efficiency of spatial information service composition and enhance its stability, this paper proposes to introduce the spatial information service combination network into the geometric space and use Ricci curvature to study the local structure of spatial information service chain and explore the way of connecting to the spatial information service network, and analyze the Ricci curvature and its distribution and excavate the network structure and analyze its meaning. It is found that negative curvature nodes are more heavily loaded and have more service invocations. They are prefer to be distributed over the edge of the graph structure composed of spatial information service chains, and more inclined to the intersection of local structures of the network,the positive curvature on the contrary. And the proportion of negative curvature of this service network is large,which indicates that there is strong connectivity and recall between these different service chains.

Structural Optimization Algorithm of Weight Correlation Analysis for DBN
by Min Zhang
Abstract: The Deep Belief Network (DBN) algorithm has slow convergence rate and low learning efficiency, and it is sensitive to model hyperparameters. In view of the fact that DBN is a learning network model with a large number of network nodes and multiple hidden layers, this paper proposes a weight correlation analysis algorithm for DBN (WCA-DBN) to determine the approximately optimal network structure of DBN. This algorithm establishes a PS orthogonal projection space based on the arbitrary node set using the Linear Discriminant Analysis (LDA) method, projects the balanced node set onto the PS plane, and solves the weights of the network nodes between sets through the correlation principle, to adjust the network structure of the hidden layer adaptively. The real-time traffic flow of six different types of roads in Jinan City, Shandong Province was selected as experimental materials to verify that the WCA-DBN algorithm has more obvious advantages over traditional algorithms in terms of accuracy and time complexity.

Preventing Sybil Attacks in Chord and Kademlia Protocols
by Zied Trifa
Abstract: Structured p2p overlay networks, such as Chord, Kademlia, CAN, Pastry and Tapastry allow participant to generate multiple identities on shared physical node. This practice of Sybil attacks introduces the risks of damaging the routing protocol and blocking access to information by impeding queries. Most existing security monitoring mechanisms are inefficient when applied to structured p2p overlay networks. In this work we propose a monitoring strategy allowing the decrease of Sybil nodes rate. We investigate this problem and find ways to detect suspicious behaviors. The key idea of our solution is to use the attack against the attack. We use Sybil attacks to infiltrate and launch monitor peers under different strategies to maximize the likelihood of detection. We were able to infiltrate and monitor in-depth the overlay using a small number of Sybils introduced in strategic zones, which allows us to estimate the number of malicious nodes. The proposed strategy is evaluated against the use of multiple identities both in Chord and Kademlia protocols as most cited and popular p2p overlay networks. We find that adoption of limited number of monitors makes Sybil attacks ineffective.

Abstract: In recent years, researchers have proposed a number of encryption algorithms and encryption schemes to protect the privacy of individuals or businesses. However, these encryption algorithms and encryption schemes are difficult to achieve a certain balance in term of encryption efficiency and security. In order to achieve this goal as much as possible, we propose a hybrid encryption technique, which makes the best use of two encryption techniques to achieve higher security and faster speed of encryption algorithm. We introduce two techniques in this hybrid encryption scheme. The first is scrambling and the second is encryption. We evaluated the performance of encrypted video by comparing the PSNR and SSIM values of the scrambled video and the encrypted video. Experimental results show that the proposed scheme has high encryption efficiency and good security.

by Zhichao Wang, Liang Tang, Jun Steed Huang, HongWei Shi, Li Bian
Abstract: For smart street light wireless sensor networks, there are huge amount of redundant packets flooding in the route discovery process, resulting in information explosion and high energy consumption. To solve these problems, this paper proposes an improved flooding routing protocol which is suitable for smart street light wireless sensor networks. The protocol can receive signals which include the serial number of copies of the packets, destination address, node types and so on, and it determines the received signal whether need to be forwarded again or not. It forward signal according to a probability which is selected from Golden Ratio (GR), Moon Age (MA), Lunar Month (LM), Euler-Mascheroni constant (EM), EmbreeFrefethen constant (EF), LandauRamanujan constant (LR), Prime Quadruplet (PQ) based on the environment factors such as the season. Thus the protocol can prevent the information explosion effectively and reduce the energy consumption of the entire network, while without lowering the reliability. Through the practical application test analysis, combined with Matlab simulation, we show that the improved algorithm can balance the efficiency versus the reliability, and it has a very broad application prospects.

Certificateless Batch Verification Protocol to ensure data integrity in Multi-Cloud using Lattices
by Sasikala Chinthakunta, Shoba Bindu Chigarapalle
Abstract: Cloud storage provides flexible On-demand data storage services to users at anytime and anywhere. However, this new model of data storage introduces a number of new security threats in Cloud Computing environment, because of the loss of physical control over the outsourced data. One of the major challenging issues is data integrity protection. To address this problem several Remote Data Integrity Checking (RDIC) protocols have been proposed, but most of them do not support batch verification, or they rely on Public Key Infrastructure. In this work, we introduce a Certificateless Batch Verification Protocol using Lattices, which supports data integrity checking of multiple data files in a multi-cloud environment. Using, this protocol Third Party Auditor (TPA) can check the data integrity of the multiple data files stored on different cloud service providers at a time. By utilizing, random masking technique and Fibonacci based search approach the proposed protocol not only provides privacy preserving RDIC but also achieves rapid identification of the corrupted data. With this batch verification, we will reduce the computation overhead and communication overhead over the TPA. Through a security analysis we prove the storage correctness and privacy against the TPA of the proposed method. And the experimental results shows that the proposed batch verification decreases computation cost over the TPA approximately 10% compared to the individual verification.

A Low Cost Paging Scheme for Clustered PMIPv6 Protocol by Head-MAG Entity Utilization
by Adnan Jabir
Abstract: Clustered PMIPv6 (CPMIPv6) was proposed to reduce the PMIPv6 signaling cost by dividing the domain into clusters each with a Head-MAG used to control the intra-cluster operations. However, existing mobility protocols perform registration process even for idle nodes, which leads to degrade the protocol performance due to unnecessary location updates. On the other hand, paging technique is widely used in cellular networks to reduce the signaling required for idle nodes registration. Although several paging schemes were proposed to enhance the PMIPv6 performance, they are either based on central entity or they incur high signaling cost due to multicasting. Inspired by CPMIPv6 architecture, this paper proposes a low cost paging scheme where each cluster is considered as a paging area and Head-MAGs entities are utilized to perform the paging functions within the cluster. The analytical results show that the proposed scheme outperforms the existing paging schemes in terms of paging signaling cost.

by Yu Cao
Abstract: Data feature extraction is vulnerable to external interferences during traditional classification of associated data of large-scale network system, resulting in low classification accuracy and large time consumption, so an optimized classification algorithm of large-scale network system associated data features based on deep learning is proposed. In this algorithm, associated data of large-scale network system is acquired through the multi-sensor quantization fusion method, and the acquired data is done with spectral decomposition to obtain the convergence conditions for feature components of associated data of large-scale network system; then the feature components are processed based on a spectrum analysis model to extract features of associated data of large-scale network system; the features of the associated data are done with piecewise regression analysis, and data samples are output in classification based on the deep learning algorithm. Simulation results show that the proposed method can accurately classify associated data with relatively short learning steps with accuracy 24.7% higher than that of the ARMA classification method and 22.6% higher than that of the decision tree classification method. It is verified that the method proposed in this paper is obviously better than the traditional methods with higher classification accuracy and less time consumption.

Delay and Jitter Sensitivity Analysis with varying TCP fraction for Multiplexed Internet Communications
by Sneha Thombre, Lalit Patnaik, Anil Tavildar
Abstract: Queuing delay and Jitter are much more difficult to evaluate as all other components of end-to-end delay are adequately characterized in Internet. Jitter is particularly important to manage the QoS of real-time applications. Queuing delay and jitter are clearly related to congestion control and occur at the network layer, therefore the queuing delay and jitter are analyzed at the network layer in this paper. Initially, arrival and service processes for multiplexed TCP and UDP datagrams at the congested router output queue are modeled. The model accounts for the fraction of TCP and UDP datagrams (as they contend for resources), the arrival and service distributions of TCP and UDP with their respective datagram sizes. Mean queuing delay, average instantaneous queuing delay and jitter are quantified using queuing theory and the arrival and service process model. The findings of the analysis are then compared with NS2 simulation results. The interesting and intriguing result is that, delay related performance of the tagged flow is adversely affected by the fraction of TCP in the background traffic. This is particularly important because TCP dominates the overall traffic. The simulation results fairly agree with the analytical values. The conclusion is true for Cubic, Reno and Compound TCP flavors.

Secure Encryption Algorithms for Wireless Sensor Networks Based on Node Trust Value
by Li Li
Abstract: The data transmission in the wireless sensor network is affected by the forwarding randomness of the relay node, resulting in poor security encryption performance. In order to improve the security encryption capability of wireless sensor network, a wireless sensor network security encryption algorithm based on node trust value is proposed. The linear coding design of sensor network transmission data is carried out according to the trust degree, and the composite chaotic model is used for recursive analysis of vector quantization in wireless sensor network encryption process, and then the linear block code design of encryption key and decryption key is realized. The regression analysis results of node trust value are used to realize wireless sensor network security encryption. Simulation results show that the security of wireless sensor network encryption used proposed method is better, the distortion of encrypted transmission is lower, and the performance is better.
Keywords: node trust value; wireless sensor network; security encryption; algorithm design.

ATM PIN GENERATION - A Formal Mathematical Model to generate PIN Using Regular Grammar, Context Free Grammar and recognition through Finite State Machine, Pushdown Automata
by VAITHYASUBRAMANIAN SUBRAMANIAN
Abstract: A Secret Passcode composed of numbers in authenticating the genuine user is recognized as Personal Identification Number (PIN). A PIN is utilized to authenticate the identity of the legitimate person to access Debit/Credit card in an ATM or online. In general Personal Identification Number is used to validate the legitimate user for transactions like Credit card, Debit card; online and also in accessing mobile telephones. In banking sectors, as a part of two factor authentication ATM card assumes noteworthy part, PIN serves as a legalized application to distinguish the authenticated user. PIN commonly contains four digits; to generate this four digit access code new behavioral model has been proposed. This paper exhibits PIN generation technique made out of a finite number of states utilizing "Regular Grammar" and "Context Free Grammar". Programming Language Python generating PIN of 4 digit numbers is also offered in this paper. To perceive the produced 4-digit ATM PIN computational Mathematical Model known as a Finite State Machine and "Pushdown Automata" has been utilized.

Analysis of factors affecting Customer Satisfaction in E-Commerce applications using Condorcet AHP method
by Sweta Bhattacharya, V. Raju
Abstract: The paper proposes a new approach by combining Condorcet Voting Theory with Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) to analyze various criteria and alternatives affecting customer satisfaction in E-commerce systems. Customer satisfaction depends on multiple criteria and alternatives and choosing the most prioritized one leads to a multi-criteria decision making (MCDM) problem. AHP method has been successfully used to resolve MCDM problems in various sectors of human life. But the major weakness of AHP lies in the use of subjective assessment and importance scale point which leads to judge mental errors in results. In this paper Condorcet voting method is used to derive the importance of the criteria involved in customer satisfaction instead of subjective assessment and quantitative ratio method is used instead of the standard importance scale point eliminating the weaknesses of the traditional AHP technique. The derived consistency ratio values provide support to the consistency accuracy and consistency of the results. The comparative analysis of the priority vectors highlight Trust and Support as the most significant criteria affecting customer satisfaction in e-commerce. The structured analysis of the criteria in this paper thus provides immense insight and hence would benefit business personnels to frame strategies pertinent to the most significant criteria and enhance customer satisfaction in e-commerce systems.

Security analysis of a Cloud Authentication Protocol using applied pi-calculus
by Norbert Oláh, Andrea Huszti
Abstract: Nowadays cloud computing is the most promising model within information technology. One of the most important issues is to achieve secure user authentication. Vulnerability of an authentication protocol results in successful attacks against confidentiality and integrity of user data stored and processed in the cloud. In our suggested protocol a person uses a static password and a one-time password for identity verification. Shared control among the cloud servers is provided by applying a Merkle-tree for storing one-time passwords distributed. A security analysis is carried out in case of outsider adversaries. We show that our authentication protocol fulfills typical security requirements of a key exchange protocol, i.e. authentication of the participants, key secrecy, key freshness and confirmation that both parties know the new key in the Dolev-Yao model.
Keywords: Cloud computing; two-factor authentication; applied pi calculus; Merkle-tree.
Improvement of WBAN Performances by a Hybrid Model: Design and Evaluation of a Novel Inter-MAC Layer Exploited In Medical Applications
by CHARAF EDDINE AIT ZAOUIAT, ADNANE LATIF
Abstract: The main idea of this paper is essentially motivated by the need to set up a smooth transition towards the IEEE 802.15.6 standard, which is doomed to take over versus IEEE 802.15.4 standard in the future, which is of a great interest. In this paper, since IEEE 802.15.4 is more efficient for sensors with minimum data rate requirement, for sensors enquiring high data rates, the use of IEEE 802.15.6 is more advantageous, whence our contribution aims to improve the Wireless Body Area Networks (WBANs) performance by combining both IEEE 802.15.4 and IEEE 802.15.6 advantages in one hybrid WBAN design. A new design so called the Inter-MAC layer is suggested, which is located between the dependent-technology MAC layers and upper protocols layers, playing the role of a smart communication bridge. Ultimately, a comparative evaluation study is conducted between the two combined models (i.e. IEEE 802.15.4 and IEEE 802.15.6) with the new hybrid design, which led to a considerable improvement in terms of the lifetime and the reliability.
