These articles have been peer-reviewed and accepted for publication but are pending final changes, are not yet published and may not appear here in their final order of publication until they are assigned to issues. Therefore, the content conforms to our standards but the presentation (e.g. typesetting and proof-reading) is not necessarily up to the Inderscience standard. Additionally, titles, authors, abstracts and keywords may change before publication. Articles will not be published until the final proofs are validated by their authors.

  • Trust Computation using Fuzzy Analyzer   Order a copy of this article
    by Brijesh Kumar Chaurasia, Kapil Sharma, Varsha Dixit, Shekhar Verma 
    Abstract: Vehicular Ad hoc Network (VANET) is a promising technology for providing the safety and efficiency in transportation. The distinctive features of VANET, including high mobility, variable density and open wireless medium, may lead to many security vulnerabilities. Due to the need for almost negligible reaction time, it is not feasible to verify a critical message or authenticate the sender before taking action. There is a need for a priori trust on nodes so that a vehicle can act in response to a message without verifying it. In this paper, trust computation scheme for variable density in VANET along with time efficiency for decision making is presented. In this work, fuzzy based analyzer is being used to evaluate trust level of messages in high, medium and low density environment whenever indirect trust value is available. The proposed scheme is also able to measure trust level of vehicle whenever indirect trust value is unavailable using Dempster-Shafer theory and PerronFrobenius theorem. Results and simulation show that viability of the proposed scheme.rn

  • Spectrum Management and Democratization in Morocco   Order a copy of this article
    by Mohammed Ibahrine, Bouziane Zaid 
    Abstract: This paper explores the history and current status of spectrum regulation in Morocco. The ANRT is described in details with a focus on its primary goals and activities followed by a discussion of the policies and the outcomes of the regulatory processes. The second part of the paper closely examines the administrative threats with regards to ANRTs independence and its policies of access competition and transparency. The paper also addresses the recent pressing issues of the states surveillance and privacy. This paper concludes with a delineation of two possible scenarios: a utopian or dystopian future of the spectrum and access to digital platforms in Morocco.

  • CoreLB: Towards Providing Multi-metric Score-based Load Balancing using OpenFlow and SNMP   Order a copy of this article
    by Rodrigo Da Rosa Righi, Cristiano Costa, Clebio Dossa, Felipe Rabuske, Diego Kreutz 
    Abstract: Load balancing is still one of the most crucial services offered by service providers. In spite of having several load balancing solutions in the market, this area has gained attraction with SDN and OpenFlow. In this paper, we present CoreLB, a new load balancing model that takes into account a broader range of metrics from both networking devices and servers to achieve a better balancing of the servers

  • MEASURING USABILITY IN WEB: A PUBLIC UNIVERSITY CASE   Order a copy of this article
    by Aykut Hamit Turan, Naciye Güliz Uğur 
    Abstract: Web sites are developing as a critical segment of an enterprise's survival in our perpetually globalizing vying world. Small or large all organizations are developing Internet capabilities to provide services to their stakeholders to gain competitive advantage. As web sites are widely deployed in any industry by private or public organizations, it has become essential to investigate factors associated with organizational web site success. Web site usability has been taught to be an important indicator of web site evaluation and success. The purpose of this research is to assess and to investigate the usability perceptions of members of a public university, about the organizational website design and to tender some suggestions to enhance better and useful web sites. This study empirically tested original WAMMI framework in a Turkish university setting. We mainly found empirical support for the underlying theoretical model.
