  • Simulation Research of Nodes Target Tracking Algorithm Based on Clustering in Wireless Sensor Network   Order a copy of this article
    by Kaibin Wei 
    Abstract: Since sensor nodes are constrained in cost and volume, they have limited ability in data storage and processing. Therefore, the routing algorithm needs lower time and space complexity for energy conservation. This article design a dynamic cluster head selection mechanism based on backoff time of residual energy of nodes, aiming at energy conservation and low complexity for the algorithm. At the phase of cluster head selection, we reduce the backoff time of nodes with more energy, so it can win the competition in cluster head selection and control the number of cluster heads, by controlling the radius of cluster lead broadcasting. Then the cluster member nodes are chosen according to the hop range to cluster head, whose weights are computed by the distance to cluster head and the residual energy. At the premise of saving self-energy, it can choose different cluster head and save the energy of cluster head to achieve global energy balance and prolong the network lifetime. The simulations verify that the improved algorithm can make reasonable distribution location of cluster head. The membership has close number and the reasonable topology ensure the global consumption of network.

    by Guanlin Chen, Kunlong Zhou, Yubo Peng, Liang Zhou, Yong Zhang 
    Abstract: With the popularity of wireless networks in recent years, the mobile phone users accounted for 95.1% in China. Meanwhile, the security issues cannot be ignored. The cost of wireless attacks is getting lower, and there are more frequent occurrence of wireless fishing, wireless crack and other security events. However, the current traditional intrusion prevention method can only cope with relatively simple attack scenarios. Therefore, the development of new intrusion prevention system is particularly important. In this paper, we design and implement a novel network intrusion prevention system, which uses VpnService and TcpDump to capture traffic as a data source, cooperates with the single-step attack rule signature database and the attack chain signature database to perform real-time intrusion detection, and combines intent analysis to detect intrusion intention-behavior and output alarms. The results show that the system is effective in recognizing typical wireless attacks.

  • Unsaturated traffic oriented spatial clustering multiusers MAC protocol for the next generation WLAN   Order a copy of this article
    by Yong Li, Bo Li, Mao Yang 
    Abstract: The next generation wireless local area network (WLAN) needs to significantly improve area throughput in high-dense deployment scenarios. Facing to the interference spread problem of OFDMA MAC, some existing studies introduce spatial clustering group-based OFDMA protocol (SCG-OFDMA), which enables geographically close nodes to send uplink OFDMA data simultaneously. However, SCG-OFDMA assumes that all the nodes have saturated traffic, which cannot be directly extended to the unsaturated traffic case. In this paper, an unsaturated traffic oriented spatial clustering multiusers MAC protocol (SCM-MAC) is proposed. Specifically, spatial clustering multiusers (SCM) discovery process is designed. After that, whether the cluster heads have traffic or not, they contend channel for their group members. Moreover, theoretical analysis of the optimal access radius is derived. Simulation results are in agreement with the theoretical analysis, and show that the area throughput of SCM-MAC is 34% and 50% higher than that of IEEE 802.11ax and OMAX protocol, respectively.

    Abstract: Energy management control of prefabricated construction is affected by the environment temperature and the internal structure of construction, and it is prone to energy drift distortion and larger energy consumption cost of the construction. This paper proposed an energy management control system of prefabricated construction based on internet of things (IoT) technology. ISA/EISA/Micro Channel were used as expansion bus. Program loading and cross-compiling methods were adopted to realize instruction complication and loading. And the energy management control system of prefabricated construction was developed under the low-power consumption Visual DSP++ 4.5 development environment according to the instruction loading results. The control constraint parameters of energy management control system of prefabricated construction were determined. The construction temperature, power consumption and electricity consumption were used as constraint indexes. Combined with the indexes, the inversion integral control law and the fuzzy PID control law were adopted to optimize and improve the prefabricated construction control system. In order to verify the effectiveness of the system designed in this paper, a simulation comparison experiment was carried out. The experimental results showed that the root mean square (RMS) error of energy management under the prefabricated construction energy management control system was convergent to 0.0101, which was 12.23% and 21.87% lower than that of traditional methods. In the condition of reducing energy consumption cost of construction, the control system designed in this paper also had the advantages of high accuracy and shorter time-consumption.

  • An Extended Mechanism to Prevent Distributed Denial of Service Attack in DV-Hop Localization Algorithm in Wireless Sensor Networks   Order a copy of this article
    by Simarjeet Kaur, Navdeep Kaur, Kamaljit Singh Bhatia 
    Abstract: Node localization is the procedure for finding the physical position of the nodes in a Wireless sensor network (WSN). The network performance is enhanced with nodes precise location. DV (Distance Vector) - Hop localization scheme is one of the most successful localization schemes. It executes competently with the assistance of beacon nodes. However, when network is interrupted with Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack then the localization process of DV-Hop scheme is badly affected. This paper has examined the effects of the DDoS attack on the DV-Hop algorithm. So, a mechanism consisting of swarm optimization and machine learning is proposed to guard against DDoS attack. The architecture also designs a novel fitness function for Artificial Bee Colony (ABC). To check the appropriate effectiveness of the proposed fitness function of ABC, Feed Forward Neural Network with Gradient satisfaction is applied. The cross validation architecture further uses Mean Square Error (MSE) for the back propagation model and effectiveness is checked through a regression model as well. The evaluation is done in terms of Localization error and Transmission loss. The simulation results are obtained using Matlab and show the reduction of 33% for localization error and 27% for transmission loss respectively.

  • The Quality Factor for detecting Node Isolation Attack in Mobile Ad hoc Networks Using OLSR Protocol   Order a copy of this article
    by Abdellah NABOU, My Driss LAANAOUI, Mohammed OUZZIF 
    Abstract: The Optimized Link State Routing (OLSR) protocol is a proactive routing protocol for Mobile Ad hoc Network (MANET), it is more suitable for large and dense mobile networks thanks to its new concept of Multi-Point Relay (MPR) nodes that reduce the overhead of the network, unfortunately the performance of OLSR routing protocol can be affected by various routing attacks. Node Isolation Attack is considered as a DOS (Denial of Service) attack that affects the function of OLSR routing protocols precisely by isolating the victim nodes and hiding them from the network. In this paper, we propose a new method to detect the Node Isolation Attack by using a modified version of the Quality Factor (Q) that is applied in the physical domain in order to calculate the Q of OLSR control messages and detect the attack. The experimental results show that when the attack is launched in the network between 30 and 70 second, our method can detect it without any modification in the algorithm of OLSR protocol.

    by Amrit Suman, Chiranjeev Kumar, Preetam Suman 
    Abstract: The VANET is an autonomous kind of network in which the nodes can create a wireless connection without the control of base stations. In recent years VANET has become a massive point of attraction for researchers because of its unique characteristics that are link failure and frequent changes in topology because of its high mobility. This makes VANET unique from the mobile ad-hoc network. Intelligent transportation that is a part of VANET helps in increasing transportation efficiency, enhancing safety in traffic and, improving the driving experience. Apart from these benefits, Network instability is the main drawback of VANET that reduces network efficiency. Due to various reasons, a high range of security measures required from multiple network attacks to protecting the communication between the vehicular nodes. In this paper, a routing strategy is proposed, which is based on AODV and MAC to enhance the route discovery and to avoid the collision. The proposed routing strategy consists of automatic size adjustment of contention window depending on the network capacity, channel allocation for each node, priority assigning for different types of messages, and security checking for each packet using CRC; all these are based on MAC. Route discovery and table preparation are based on the AODV. The proposed routing protocol (P-Routing) has been implemented in Qualnet 5.0. The results with the performance of C-AODV then compared. The parameters taken for comparison is total byte received, the signal received with error, total packet loss, and throughput. The number of nodes and speeds of nodes kept in variation to create different scenarios. In all cases, the performance of the proposed protocol is better. The results are described with the graphs in the result section.

  • Position-related Content Acquisition for CCM   Order a copy of this article
    by Yanli Li, Xiaonan Wang 
    Abstract: The content-centric networking (CCN) depends on reverse paths and limited broadcast to achieve content acquisition, but the reverse-path disruption due to node mobility leads to content acquisition failures and flooding results in considerable content acquisition costs. In this paper, we propose a Unicast-based content acquisition scheme for Content-Centric MANET (UCCM) to reduce content acquisition costs and improve success rates. UCCM employs the address-centric unicast instead of the content-centric broadcast to achieve the content acquisition, so the content acquisition cost is lowered. Moreover, a requester acquires the content from the nearest provider in the address-centric unicast way, so the content is returned to a requester based on the requesters address rather than the reverse paths. UCCM is evaluated, and the analysis results show that UCCM reduces the content acquisition cost by nearly 63.8% and improve the success rate by nearly 5.9%.

    Abstract: Traditional elevator emergency dispatching platforms are limited by their computing power, they cannot automatically collect knowledge and learning information, and they can easily fall into local optimization problems. Therefore, in the context of cloud computing, a multi-elevator emergency dispatching control platform is constructed through fuzzy control technology.

The maximum membership degree method is used to perform the deblurring processing, and the maximum value in the fuzzy output vector is used as the data after the deblurring processing to obtain the emergency dispatching result of multiple elevators. The results show that the average waiting time of the platform is 20.35s, less than other platform methods, which indicate that this platform has excellent dispatching performance and good application prospects.

    by Reyhaneh Rabaninejad, Maryam Rajabzadeh 
    Abstract: In cloud storage services, public auditing mechanisms allow a third party to verify integrity of the outsourced data on behalf of data owners without the need to retrieve data from the cloud server. In some applications, the identity of data users should be kept private from the third party auditor. Oruta, is a privacy preserving public auditing scheme for shared data in the cloud which exploits ring signatures to protect the identity privacy. In this paper, we propose two attacks and demonstrate that the scheme is insecure and a dishonest server can arbitrarily tamper the outsourced data without being detected by the auditor. We also propose a solution to remedy this weakness with the minimum overhead and without losing any desirable features of the scheme. Performance evaluation demonstrate acceptable efficiency of improved scheme in comparison to the original protocol.

    Abstract: Internet integrating sensor network (IISN) has gained much importance and exponential growth has been seen over the last twenty years. It is typically installed in remote and unattended terrains to monitor, process and collect time-critical and sensitive data. Internet integrated wireless sensor network can be used in various critical sectors such as monitoring of nuclear power plant, disaster management, internet of things (IoT), industrial management etc. As the application area of sensor network is increasing rapidly, the adversaries can trigger duplicate ID based attacks such as Clone and Sybil attacks. In this paper, for joining a new node in the existing network, we propose a secure identity assignment who wish to join the network with the help of any existing node of the network. With the collaboration of an existing node, an overlay ID will be assigned to new node which is secured by using a public key cryptography. The paper included a complexity and communication overhead analysis to demonstrate the effectiveness of proposed method which maximizes the defence/protection against ID based attacks. Complexity analysis demonstrates the superiority of the proposed method.

  • Efficient Routing Algorithm for improving the Network performance in Internet of Things   Order a copy of this article
    by Vijayakrishna Akula, Anny Leema 
    Abstract: In the recent years, many routing protocols have been developed for Internet of Things (IoT) which reduces the delay and network congestion. However, in some urgent situations, the transmission of urgent or priority packets to the destination with in the specified time are compulsory. The tradition routing methods explores all the paths from source to destination which leads to longer paths and doesnt guarantee the delivery of priority packets. This paper concentrates on developing the priority based event detection routing scheme in IoT. This method analyses the arrival packets and forwards to the destination by finding the shortest path with queue difference. The priority packets which arrive at the priority queue having minimum deadline is selected. The regular packets are followed with their normal queue policy. The experimental results proved that proposed method achieved 34% less end to end delay and 26% high accuracy in throughput compared to the other existing algorithms.

  • Multicast Routing and Allocation of Wavelengths in a WDM Network with Splitters and Converters   Order a copy of this article
    by Abdelhakim DAFEUR, Bernard Cousin, Rezki Ziani 
    Abstract: This paper deals with the problem of multicast routing and the allocation of wavelengths in a WDM network with optical splitters and converters. We present an exact formulation in integer linear programming (ILP) to find a set of optical structures connecting a source to a set of destination nodes. We use a new optical structure called hierarchical. In hierarchical structure, an optical signal can pass more than once through the same optical node and an intermediate node can belong to the set of destinations; this is a generalization of "light trails"). The problem of multicast routing with sparse wavelength conversion and sparse splitting using the hierarchical structure has not yet been studied. So, our main contribution consists of introducing new optical constraints of wavelength converters with the hierarchical structure. The objective is to focus on the benefits and performances of using wavelength converters in a WDM network. Simulation results show that the hierarchical structure gets better results in terms of overall link cost and the number of wavelengths in the case of WDM network sparse wavelength converters than the WDM network without converters.

  • Cognitive decision engine design for cognitive radio networks using gravitational search algorithm and flower pollination algorithm   Order a copy of this article
    by Badr Benmammar 
    Abstract: In cognitive radio networks, the real-time setting of the transmission parameters required by the cognitive engine according to the quality of service requested by the cognitive users has become an essential task. This adjustment is becoming increasingly difficult in OFDM-based cognitive radio networks because of the existence of a large number of decision variables to be optimized for multi-carrier systems. For decision making, the cognitive engine in OFDM-based cognitive radio networks uses optimization algorithms. However, in order to reduce the complexity and obtain a resource allocation in a reasonable time, cognitive radio networks use artificial intelligence techniques and in particular metaheuristics. We analyze in this article the performances of two recent metaheuristics namely gravitational search algorithm and flower pollination algorithm in OFDM-based cognitive radio networks. Simulation results show that FPA has surpassed GSA in terms of Fitness. In contrast, GSA outperformed FPA in terms of execution time. On the other side, FPA and GSA outperform genetic algorithms in terms of solution quality (fitness) with improvements reaching 10% and 7% respectively and prove their efficiencies in order to support three modes of transmission of the cognitive user.

Servers are heterogeneous in nature based on functionality and configurations. Server selection in each level, communication establishment, and transmission of information between two servers placed at two consecutive levels are three major tasks to be executed for entire query search processing. Several policies are proposed for communication establishment and transmission of information between servers with consideration of risks management. Several load management strategies have been proposed for server selection dynamically from set of available servers having distinct loads using load balance factor. In this paper, we have also introduced a procedure to follow two separate paths for transmission of search query and query response to avoid congestion in network to achieve minimum delay in query response.

  • On the Minimization of Resource Utilization for Cost Reduction in Space Division Multiplexing Based Elastic Optical Networks   Order a copy of this article
    by Sridhar Iyer 
    Abstract: In the current work, for a Space Division Multiplexing (SDM) based Elastic Optical Network (EON) (SDM-b-EON), we formulate a routing, modulation format, spatial granularity , and spectrum assignment (RMFSpGlSA) problem which aims to minimize the overall network cost by reducing the resource (i.e., wavelength selective switches (WSSs), Lasers, and spectrum) usage. Initially, RMFSpGlSA is formulated as a joint integer linear program (J-ILP) model (namely, J-ILP-RMFSpGlSA) following which, to obtain better convergence and reasonable execution times; J-ILP is split as a RMFSpGl+SA problem (namely, ILP-RMFSpGl+SA) which successively solves the RMFSpGl and the SA problems. Next, considering realistic network topologies and parameters, extensive simulations are conducted to evaluate performances of the two formulated ILP models with an aim to find the best spatial granularity value under various conditions. The obtained results demonstrate that when the unit cost ratio of the WSSs and the frequency slots (FSs), and the lasers and the FSs is low (e.g., 0.01) then, compared to the WSSs and the Lasers, there occurs more preservation of the spectrum, and a fine value (e.g., 8) is chosen more number of times compared to a coarse value (e.g., 12) which is always chosen for higher values of unit cost ratio of the WSSs and the FSs, and the lasers and the FSs. Further, a coarse spatial granularity value does not have a major effect on the required FSs amount; however, it significantly impacts the required WSSs and Lasers amount which implies that only when equal importance is imposed on the requirement of all the resources, a coarse spatial granularity value is the best value. It is also observed that the fine values of spatial granularity are mostly chosen with the widening of the guardband width values, and for a guardband width value of 50 GHz, a low value (e.g., 8) is only chosen. Also, the obtained results show that with an increase in the mean bit-rate values of the demands, a coarse value of spatial granularity is mostly chosen. Finally, all the results demonstrate that ILP-RMFSpGl+SA obtains similar performance when compared to J-ILP-RMFSpGlSA simultaneously requiring much lesser execution times.

  • Efficient IPv4-IPv6 translation mechanism for IMS using SIP proxy   Order a copy of this article
    by Ali Abdulrazzaq, Alhamza Munther, Supriyanto Praptodiyono 
    Abstract: Next-generation IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) has a promise future in Internet technologies. Technically, IMS utilizes Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) for call communication. Potentially, SIP clients might reside in coexistence network family like IPv6 and/or IPv4. The coexistence of SIP clients considered a serious issue in SIP communication and IPv6 migration in general. Specifically, when IPv6 client try to send a voice call toward IPv4 client, the call will fail or end up with incomplete message. In this paper a SIP-Proxy IP Translator (SPIPT) is proposed to translate SIP call between from IPv6 to IPv4 and vice versa. The proposed solution comes to insure successive connectivity in term of IP version compatibility. The experiment shows that SIP proxy performs with acceptable CPU usage, throughput, and Call Response Time parameters. In sum, the solution aims to reduce call setup complexity and leverages user experience which in turn accelerates IPv6 transition.

  • The Study of Dynamic Resource Allocation on Aggregation of Unlicensed Spectrum in LTE-A Networks   Order a copy of this article
    by Wu Jung-Shyr 
    Abstract: The 3GPP formulated the fourth-generation LTE-Advanced specifications, in which Carrier Aggregation technology can increase the data transmission rate by aggregating continuous and non-continuous carriers to meet the transmission needs of a large number of users. However, users demand for multimedia network application services continues to increase and makes the licensed spectrum more and more overwhelming. Therefore, this article hopes to combine the licensed and unlicensed spectrum to provide a wider data channel with higher data transmission. We focus on improving the throughput of the downlink system, and propose a genetic algorithm to optimize the weights which referring to the carrier unit channel quality and load conditions to select the most suitable carrier unit for the user. Afterwards, resource allocation methods are presented for the different traffic of GBR and Non-GBR effectively. Finally, we show the simulation results to prove that the proposed method is effective in improving system throughput and user satisfaction.

  • Congruent Fine-Grained Data Mining Model for Large-Scale Medical Data Mining   Order a copy of this article
    by Arthi Jaya Kumari J, Muhammad Rukunuddin Ghalib 
    Abstract: Electronic medical data management is eased with the integration of communication technologies and the cloud/ Internet of Things (IoT) platform in recent years. The organization and mining of the data from massive repositories is a complex and time-consuming process. However, the exploitation of such massive information requires large-scale analytical procedures by accounting its significance. This article introduces congruent fine-grained data mining (CFDM) model for reducing the complexities in large-scale medical data handling. This model identifies the independent and relation-based repositories for matching the request queries in the data retrieval process. By using a classification decision-tree, the identifications are performed to improve the retrieval rate. In this classification tree, the independent and relation-based data are first analyzed for their matching consistencies. By pursuing this process, the non-matching query-data satisfying the relevance condition are grouped into a new relationship based classification. This helps to improve the matching and retrieval rate preciously in the consecutive mining instances. The proposed model improves retrieval responses, retrieving time, complexity, and data availability.

    by Anita Chaudhari, Rajesh Bansode 
    Abstract: In recent days, IoT played a major part on the worldwide network. Maintaining security along with privacy of IoT nodes are the main challenge in IoT, as IoT devices are connected and operated using the Internet. Most of the authors had used different technologies for authentication like username, password, OTP, Secret key, RFID, authentication schemes implemented using a single factor, multifactor parameter which are discussed in the review section. But, they continue to suffer from few drawbacks like its adaptability to real time applications that threaten users' data protection. They also possess challenges namely forgotten, stolen, and shared with another user who is unauthorized. Therefore, a strong authentication mechanism is required, so the user can get direct access of sensor information. So, to achieve it, our research concentrates on a unique authentication scheme. The primary goal of this research is to find whether an authenticated user is traveled through and , to find whether the registered sensor is used through and . The security attacks and data hacking are handled by the proposed technique with Binary Search Trees (BST).In our research, several experiments with a different scenario like for authorized and unauthorized user has been performed and the outcome is compared with the existing methods. Based on results, the proposed work outperforms the existent method concerning users, the time required for , and sensor, communication cost, energy cost on the sensor, Packet Delivery Ratios, End-to-End delay (EED), along with throughput.

    Abstract: The main hindrances for the development of BlockChain (BC) are the vast storage volume. Thus, finding a way to optimizing the storage mechanism to release the burden has become an important issue. Nevertheless, solely relying on a specific cloud storage supplier has several potentially serious issues, say vendor lock-in, availability, along with security. To tackle this issue, this paper proposed an effectual BC-centered scheme aimed at storage utilization with respect to Data Deduplication (DD) as well as the secure sharing of Electronics Health Records (EHR) data betwixt several entities involving patients, research institutions, as well as semi-trusted Cloud Servers (CS). And in the interim, it employs the memory via the DD concept. In this, the Stribog hashing algorithm creates the Hash Code (HC) for the uploaded file. To evade storing duplicate copies of data, DD is checked centered on this algorithm. Presently, the system utilizes the Modified Ciphertext-Policy Attribute-Based Encryption (MCP-ABE) for amassing data in the distributed cloud in an encrypted format to guarantee security. Next, the Weight and Exhaustiveness-based Harris Hawks Optimization (WEH2O) selects the Distributed CS (DCS). At last, the data are securely amassed in a BC-centered cloud that also renders security. Centered on the experimentations outcomes, the proposed work offered a better performance analogized to the other data transmission.

    by Linjiang Xie, Feilu Hang, Wei Guo, Yao Lv, Wei Ou, C. Chandru Vignesh 
    Abstract: Nowadays, there is anticipated exponential growth in the number of internet-enabled devices, which will increase cyber threats across an expanding attack surface area. For guaranteeing network security, this study proposes the Machine Learning-based Security Active Defense Model (MLSADM). Machine learning (ML) is how Artificial Intelligence learns patterns that lead to abnormal behavior. This occurs when an Artificial Intelligence system or neural network is deceived into imperfectly recognizing or intentionally adapting the input. An emerging type of attack and a collaborative attack is measured in the attack and defense situation. Experiments have been carried out with the dynamic (learning) attacker of a static (fixed) defender, static attackers, and dynamic attackers. The findings show that the proposed model enhances network security with high accuracy in network abnormal behavior detection compared to other popular methods.
