Maneuvering Target Tracking Algorithm for Adaptive Estimation on Measurement Noise Variance Matrix

Aiming at the irrationality of the given value of observation noise variance in maneuvering target tracking, and based on the idea of the right selection filtering, the author proposes a new observed abnormal quantity of using interest-identify. The author then takes the idea of right selection filtering into consideration, timely adjusting the observation noise variance of filtering, changing the trust level from system to corresponding observation information in rejector so as to adjust the filter’s gains and improve the matching degree between motor model and system mode. The experimental results illustrate that the improvement on filtering algorithm to some extent improves the tracking performance from the system to target as non-maneuverable or weak-maneuverable, as well as better control the error effect of outliers.

Performance of a Hybrid DCT SVD Visually Imperceptible Digital Watermarking  against Signal Processing Attacks

Digital watermarking techniques have been developed to protect the copyright of multimedia objects such as text, audio, video. In this paper, we propose a digital watermarking algorithm with a gray image based on two dimensions discrete cosine transform (DCT) and singular value decomposition (SVD) for robust watermarking of digital images in order to protect digital media copyright. The performance of hybrid watermarking technique has presented, including imperceptibility (such as PSNR, NC) and robustness (such as Filtering, Gaussian noise, Rotation and Salt and Pepper). Experimental results demonstrate that the proposed scheme shows superior performance in the presence of signal processing attracks.

A Simplified Hybrid Navigation System Design of a Mobile Robot Using Kalman Filter

In this paper, the hybrid navigation system using Kalman filter is suggested. The hybrid navigation system consists of GPS to measure the position and the velocity of the mobile robot, and IMU to measure the posture and acceleration. The location of the mobile robot is calculated by applying Kalman filter, using the received data of the position and the velocity of the mobile robot from GPS when GPS signal is received, and the data of the acceleration which is received from IMU. The Hybrid navigation system calculates the position of a mobile robot by using acceleration and posture of IMU, and former velocity data of GPS until next the GPS signal is received. The performance of the hybrid navigation system was confirmed through the experiment comparing the actual route and the calculated route, where the calculated route of the simplified hybrid navigation system is the same with the actual route.

Proposal for Easily Detachable Proxy for Personal Information Leakage Detection

This paper proposes an easily attachable/detachable proxy that helps ordinary computer users detect their personal information leakage caused by malicious software. This proxy can behave as a stealth proxy or as a transparent proxy, meaning that the proxy can be placed at any point in a TCP/IP network. Users of this proxy can detect and stop any suspicious TCP/IP connections by placing the proxy at any appropriate point in their network and by using the bundled controller Web application that controls behavior of the proxy. We have used a Raspberry Pi and HTML5 for the proxy implementation, thus making this method affordable and portable. We evaluated the proxy by placing it at several places in the network, and confirmed that the proxy properly works and helps users detect suspicious TCP/IP connections by visualizing them between their computers and the Internet.

The Improved 16th-Order Differential Attack on 10- Round Variant of Block Cipher PRESENT

We study the improved 16th-order differential attack on 10-round variant of PRESENT that is a 64-bit block cipher supporting 80-bit and 128-bit secret keys proposed by Bogdanov et al. in 2007. Higher-order differential attack is one of the cryptanalytic techniques exploiting a low algebraic degree of an encryption/decryption function. In 2013 Wu et al. reported the 16th-order differential attack on 10-round variant of PRESENT, which requires 2


pairs of plaintext and ciphertext, and 2


times of encryption operation. In this article we adopt partial sum technique to solve an attack equation, which leads to low computational complexity. As a result we show that 10-round variant of PRESENT can be attacked with 2


pairs of plaintext and ciphertext, and 2


times of encryption operation.

Social Network Recommendation Based on Hybrid Suffix Tree Clustering

Comparing to the ordinary text analysis and recommendation, the contents on Social Network Services (SNS) are observably more distinct and less redundant. Content-based recommendation has become the main method on SNSs. Because the limited contents are occurred in SNSs, a considerable effect can’t be reached by using ordinary cluster algorithms. In this paper, we propose a two-phase hybrid clustering algorithm based on Suffix Tree Clustering (STC), which not only uses the words themselves, but relations between them as well. Evaluation experiment and analysis confirm that our techniques have better recommendation results and effects on cold-start scenarios.

A Reputation-Based Adaptive Trust Management System for Vehicular Clouds

Advances in vehicular networks, embedded devices and cloud computing will enable the formation of vehicular clouds of computing, communication, sensing, power and physical resources. Owing to the dynamic nature of the vehicular cloud, continuous monitoring on trust attributes in necessary to enforce service-level agreement, This paper proposes RA-VTrust, Reputation-based Adaptive Vehicular Trust model for efficiently evaluating the competence of a vehicular cloud service based on its multiple trust attributes. In RA-VTrust, an adaptive trust and a reputation managements based on variable precision rough sets are suggested to trust data mining and reputation knowledge discovery. The adaptive trust management provides cloud consumers with the most suitable trust for vehicular services because it is performed by considering vehicular service level agreement (VSLA) documents and reputation services. The performance of RA-VTrust is evaluated through a simulation.

Semi-automatic Construction of a Named Entity Dictionary Based on Active Learning

A named entity (NE) dictionary is an important resource to affect the performance of NE recognition, but it is not easy to construct the NE dictionary manually, because human annotation is time-consuming and labor-intensive. We propose a semi-automatic model to construct an NE dictionary from the free online resource DBpedia. The proposed model expands and purifies an NE dictionary based on an active learning technique. In the experiments, the proposed model classified 99.99% (180,008 out of 180,020 entries) of DBpedia entries into 18 NE categories with macro-averaging F1-measures of 0.6980 for 18 NE categories (0.7519 for 17 NE categories).

ERAGHC: Enhanced Reliable Authenticated Group Head Communication

Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs) are the robust and flexible networks having redundant links. These networks have some fixed nodes (gateways) providing the internet connectivity and having some static or mobile clients. However, WMNs has some security issues that have not been addressed by the existing standards. We proposed an enhanced authentication mechanism for the security of group heads in group communication. We propose and analyze an enhanced reliable authenticated group head communication (ERAGHC) architecture for secure reliable group head communication and to increase the overall efficiency and performance of architecture. The scenario has been developed and implemented in OMnet++ simulator. The simulation results reveal that the ERAGHC is better than the previous schemes in term of packet delivery ratio, packet delay and overall efficiency.

Transaction Authentication Using HMAC-Based One-Time Password and QR Code

Conducting financial transactions over the Internet has been widely adopted due to the convenience and usability. However, conducting financial transactions via the Internet may be subjected to many types of attacks including password attacks, malware, phishing, and other unauthorized activities. Many banks have enhanced their security by using One-Time Password (OTP) as another authentication method in addition to traditional username and password. The OTP may be sent to the mobile phone number of the account owner via SMS. Even with the enhanced security measure, internet banking is still vulnerable to different types of attacks such as online phishing. We propose, design, and implement a transaction authentication scheme using HMAC-based mobile OTP and QR Code. Our scheme is resilient to known attacks including, but not limited to, eavesdropping, replay, message modification, and phishing.

New Secure LEACH Protocol Using Hierarchy-Based Preshared Key Scheme

Sensor nodes used for constructing a wireless sensor network consume a small amount of electrical power and resources, and should be used efficiently in terms of energy consumption. LEACH (low energy adaptive clustering hierarchy), a protocol that periodically changes the cluster head, averages the power consumption of all nodes. Some researchers have suggested the use of a security system for LEACH, but such systems create a possibility in which certain nodes no longer connect with other nodes in the network. In this paper, we propose a new LEACH protocol that improves on these problems using a hierarchical-structured key-sharing scheme. Our method offers greater security than other related methods.

Secrecy Multiplication Based on a (k, n)-Threshold Secret-Sharing Scheme Using Only k Servers

In Shamir’s (k, n)-threshold secret-sharing scheme, a secret is divided into


shares, and the secret is recovered from


shares. When this scheme is applied to a server system, the


shares are distributed to


servers. Therefore, the secret can be restored by collecting the shares from


servers. In the case of two secrets, the latter are distributed over


servers such that each server consists of one share of each secret. Secrecy addition is performed by the addition of the two shares on each server. The combined secret can be restored through the added shares from


servers. Therefore, secrecy addition is realized by using


servers. However, secrecy multiplication requires a multiplication result from 2k-1 servers. In this paper, we propose a secrecy multiplication based on Shamir’s (k, n)-threshold secret-sharing scheme that uses only


servers. Through this scheme, the system can realize secrecy calculation without altering the threshold level.

Hierarchical-Structured Key Exchange Scheme for Large-Scale Mesh-Type Wireless Sensor Networks

The data that flows through wireless sensor networks is often private. Although data encryption is required, the calculation ability of each sensor node is weak. Therefore, common key encryption systems are suitable for sensor networks. To encrypt data using a common key, a key exchange scheme is required. For large-scale mesh-type wireless sensor networks, Key Pre-distribution Schemes have been used. However, this scheme involves some nodes that cannot perform key exchange. Moreover, as the number of stolen nodes increases, the analysis of the common key becomes easier. In this paper, we propose a novel key exchange scheme that does not include nodes that cannot perform key exchange. Even if many nodes are stolen, the proposed scheme ensures that the analysis of keys in other nodes is not possible, in the case where the attacker cannot intercept communication between any of them.

Detecting Abnormal Behavior in SCADA Networks Using Normal Traffic Pattern Learning

SCADA systems have been upgraded from the standard serial bus systems to modern TCP/IP based systems. The Modbus protocol is one of the most widely used protocols in SCADA networks. However, it provides no inherent security mechanisms. Therefore, the Modbus protocol is susceptible to the type of attack that injects false Modbus commands by fabrication or modification. In this paper, we propose an abnormal behavior detection method by using normal traffic pattern learning on Modbus/TCP transactions. Our approach is based on the characteristics of SCADA networks that are likely to have a regular traffic pattern. Most of all, the proposed method is performed according to the analysis of only Modbus/TCP request messages. Therefore, it has the benefit of detecting abnormal behavior on even with the simple traffic pattern learning.

A Multimodal Sensing System for Elder Fall Detection

Among the many health care issues for elder people, fall detection has shown up as primary focus. We propose a sensor fusion concept for elder fall monitoring and analysis. The idea is to integrate depth sensor and motion sensor. We illustrate the sensor fusion concept and implement the wireless fall detection sensor sub-system. We experiment with angular acceleration data in three limbs parts of human test target. Different life patterns of elderly are selected to test the motion monitoring system: walking and falling. Two methods are employed as diagnosis tool. The first is the energy expenditure method, while the second is the neural network method. The first tests the sensitivity of motion sensor, while the second filters out the noisy motion data for correct classification purpose. We discovered that the trained weights and bios from the neural network based on three limbs parts measurement data has allowed us to differentiate fall from regular walk motion with high accuracy.

Recent paradime for convergrnce technology between traditional maritime industry and ICT has spotlighted, especially applied for the prevention of accidents and for remedies. With the introduction of samrt ship and recent addvance in the communication technology, the accidents in coastal areas has not been reduced. The reason is that those accidents were caused by small vessels which have not fully eqipped with navigational and communication system. In this paper, we introduce a electronics chart system for mobile devices based on international standard, S-57, in small vessels. For this system, we propose a data transformation scheme applicable to mobile device. Finally, we illustrate some experiments and results of the system which is implemented with Android platform.

Exploring Tactics in Team Sports Training

Team sports tactics analysis systems often focus on game event detection, which are unable to analyze the tactics in detail and suggest better tactics for training. We introduce a novel tactics training system that is able to assess the state of the basketball game in detail, and find better defense tactics. Instead of tracking only player/ball positions, our system studies players’ attributes together with their court positions to accurately estimate each player’s offense threat or defense ability. We then formulate an optimization problem to find the defense tactics that could minimize the offense team’s threat. The optimal defense tactics found by our system have received favorable evaluations by three professional basketball coaches in Beijing Sports University from a professional point of view, and as opposed to some well known defense conventions, our system opens up new promising defense tactics and possibilities.

Adaptive CAP Assignment Approach for IEEE 802.15.3c

To support a directional antenna, IEEE 802.15.3c specifies a high data transmission rate and short frequency range communication based on the characteristics of 60 GHz band. However, the contention-based protocol of IEEE 802.15.3c may cause channel collisions and throughput degradation as the number of stations in the network increases. In order to resolve this problem and reduce channel access latency, we propose an adaptive contention access period (CAP) assignment approach in which the contention window size for optimal transmission probability is derived after the directional information has been obtained by means of access point (AP) control procedures. Simulations demonstrate that the proposed algorithm outperforms the existing channel access scheme in IEEE 802.15.3c networks.

Content Awareness-Based Fast Block Motion Estimation Algorithm for H.264/AVC Encoding System

Motion estimation part in video compression has high computational complexity. Still a lot of researches for fast scheme are in progress. In this paper, we propose an efficient motion search method based on content-awareness. The proposed method consists of three steps. The first thing is the motion classification for using the center position distribution. The second step is the calculation of predictors according to motion classification. The last is to set the search pattern size by using between predictor and center position distance, adaptively. Due to not utilization of temporal-spatial information, the proposed algorithm can reduce the required memory requirement. Experimental results show that the proposed algorithm can achieve speed-up factor of up to 30.66% on average with quite good bit rate performance, comparing to UMHexagonS and full search method and based on the H.264/AVC reference software (JM).

Ranking Method for Book Reviews Based on Estimated Discussion Quality

With the advent and growth of online bookstores, the importance of book reviews has been increased due to the difficulty to browse actual contents of books in advance. This has led to the necessity of adequate systems for retrieving useful book reviews. Recently, ranking algorithms have been proposed for this purpose. However, most of them cannot consider discussions among users through replies. User discussion is an essential factor in ranking book reviews since it provides additional information. Although a state-of-theart algorithm with consideration of the factor has been proposed, it deals with the discussions only in view of reviewers’ participation. In this paper, we propose a ranking algorithm of estimating discussion quality on the basis of all the users engaging in discussions. Experimental results show that our algorithm outperforms the state-of-the-art one in terms of precision, recall, and NDCG.

Mining Frequent Graph Patterns Considering Both Different Importance and Rarity of Graph Elements

Since frequent graph pattern mining was proposed, various approaches have been suggested by devising efficient techniques or integrating graph mining with other mining areas. However, previous methods have limitations that cannot reflect the following important characteristics in the real world to their mining processes. First, elements in the real world have their own importance as well as frequency, but traditional graph mining methods do not consider such features. Second, various elements composing graph databases may need thresholds different from one another according to their characteristics. However, since traditional approaches mine graph patterns on the basis of only a single threshold, losses of important pattern information can be caused. Motivated by these problems, we propose a new graph mining algorithm that can consider both different importance and multiple thresholds for each element of graphs. We also demonstrate outstanding performance of the proposed algorithm by comparing ours with previous state-of-the-art approaches.

Vehicle Data Generating Technique Considering Vehicles with Incrementally Changing States Based on Growth and Decline Functions

Vehicle-related engineers develop techniques for improving vehicle functions using vehicle data and test the performance of the devised techniques, where they need to secure vehicle data with various characteristics for more exact tests. However, it is actually hard to directly collect such vehicle data from the real world because of time and cost constraints. For this reason, we propose a method for generating vehicle data with various characteristics. Our approach can create vehicle data considering changes of vehicle attribute values such as increase or decrease in a linear form. Numerous types of vehicle data generated by the proposed method can be employed in a variety of data mining areas utilizing vehicle data such as clustering, monitoring, diagnosis, classification, and prognosis methods.

Correlated Blog-Page Retrieval with Structural Characteristics

A majority of researches for blog retrieval have only focused on a keyword-based search manner under consideration of fundamental blog characteristics. However, these keyword-based methods have limitations such as the limitation of keyword usage. Especially, use of irrelevant or ambiguous keywords leads to low quality of blog information retrieval. In this paper, we propose a blog ranking method considering blog pages instead of keywords as a search query. Consequently, the proposed method can solve the problem caused from the use of irrelevant keywords by efficiently selecting important keywords in accordance with the characteristics of blog pages. In addition, we present that our algorithm outperforms the previous blog retrieval algorithm in terms of Precision and Recall.

Our method ranks weblog posts by using both interconnections of weblogs and relevance between weblog topics as well as a given user query in order to offer high-quality weblog information to users. In addition, we demonstrate that our method is more effective than the previous one for retrieving weblogs in terms of the real weblog dataset.

Fast HEVC Intra Mode Decision Based on Bayesian Classification Framework with Relative SATD

HEVC (high efficiency video coding) achieves much higher coding efficiency compared with previous video coding standards at cost of significant computational complexity. This paper proposes a fast intra mode decision scheme, where a Bayesian classification framework using relative sum of absolute Hadamard transformed difference (SATD) is introduced and combined with conventional fast encoding methods. Experimental results show that this scheme reduces encoding run time by about 30% with a negligible coding loss of 0.9% BD-rate for the all intra coding scenario.

A Trie-Based Approach to Fast and Scalable Flow Recognition for OpenFlow

Software Defined Networking (SDN), as an emerging Internet architecture, improves the scalability and programmability of the network by decoupling the control plane and the forwarding plane effectively. In the data plane, OpenFlow switch, that consists of a flow table and a set of actions associated with flow entries, works as the infrastructure. To deploy SDN for large-scale networks, improving the performance of flow recognition in OpenFlow switch is a challenge. This paper presents a trie-based approach to achieve efficient wildcard-aware search for flow recognition with reasonable cost of both memory and update. Depending on the experimental evaluation, the throughput of our approach is almost 48 times higher than the conventional approach. Meanwhile, our memory cost has been reduced by 500 MB, and the update speed is also improved by 7.5 KPPS.

Accelerate Packet Classification Using GPU: A Case Study on HiCuts

Packet classification, as one of the key functions of modern routers and firewalls, has confronted with serious challenge in performance due to the increasing link rate and traffic size. Recently, GPU’s massive parallelism has been proved valuable in supporting high-speed packet classification. However, the GPU-based approach that works on the whole router platform with real packet I/O is less clear. In this paper, we firstly study how to accelerate HiCuts on GPU for packet classification. Then, we deploy a simple router platform with an optimized packet I/O framework to evaluate the end-to-end performance. On this basis, we conduct a series of experiments to demonstrate how GPU-based approach works on the router platform.

Approximating Dependency for Efficient Multi-label Feature Selection

Multi-label feature selection is an important task that can be done before applying multi-label classification algorithms because the multi-label classification performance is naturally influenced by input features. To solve this problem, feature selection algorithm considers the dependency of each feature to labels as well as the dependency among features simultaneously. However, feature selection methods suffer from additional computational burden for calculating the dependency among features. In this paper, we propose an efficient feature selection algorithm extending quadratic programming feature selection for multi-label datasets and use the Nyström approximation. Experimental results demonstrated the proposed method reduces the computational cost for performing multi-label feature selection.

Personal Information Access Control Scheme for Secure NFC Integrated Payment

NFC integrated payment service generates information such as user consumption-migration information by processing them through big-data technology after collecting personal information including credit card payment information, location information, electronic coupon usage history, etc. and also provides such service as advertising tailored to a specific user based on the pattern information. Since such sensitive personal information as consumption pattern in addition to simple personal information, only those authorized companies should be able to process the information thereof. Nonetheless, the cooperative relationship for sharing personal information among the companies based on TSM just like a mesh has been formed; thus, it is difficult to control access to personal information. Moreover, as for Hadoop that is the most prominent big-data technology, it has an access control function; however, it lacks a method to grant an authority to process personal information. As a result, it is not able to grant an authority to process information in accordance with the companies to provide simple services using the pattern information and the companies to process personal information for generating pattern information. Thus, this paper proposed a technique for key generation and distribution and a secure communication protocol in order to ensure that access control of personal information and personal information processing for each authority will be securely conducted in NFC integrated payment environment.

Light-Weight Distance-Bounding Mutual Authentication Security Scheme for Group Sensor Management

Wireless Sensor is used for military purpose, machine management, cultural properties management, etc. However, sensor being transmitted in wireless network channel, relay attack, eavesdropping, and replay attack have occurred. Also, because the sensor’s hardware arithmetic operation capacity is very limited (low cost), it has various security vulnerabilities for which a solution has not yet been developed. Thus, this paper proposed the light-weight distance-bounding mutual authentication security scheme based on the limited hardware computing capability. The proposed scheme is safe against all security vulnerabilities that could occur in sensor network and can be efficiently used for group sensor management because of its ability to authenticate multiple sensors simultaneously and to show efficient performance.

Enhanced Direct Mode Coding for Bi-predictive Pictures

The direct mode coding is widely used in the bi-predictive pictures (B-pictures). Because it has small overhead and it generates a predictive image from two reference pictures, it can efficiently improve the performance of bi-predictive coding. The traditional temporal direct mode coding usually derives the motion vector of the current block by scaling the motion vector of the co-located block in the subsequent reference picture. However, when the motion is irregular, the prediction efficiency of traditional direct mode is not very well. In this paper, we present a motion vector continuous tracking technique. With the technique, the motion trajectories of moving objects in temporally adjacent pictures are exploited to get better motion vectors for direct mode macroblocks. The proposed method can accurately calculate the motion vectors for the direct mode macroblocks and enhance coding efficiency.

In the error resilient JU-DFMC, a new error resilient prediction structure of DFMC is firstly presented. Then an end-to-end distortion model is applied for Macroblock level mode decision. Finally a frame level rate distortion cost scheme is proposed to determine how many times of the header information will be transmitted in a high quality frame. The experimental results show that the proposed method can achieve better performance than the previous DFMC schemes.

The method is based on calculation of “quasispectrum” by zero-crossing number and estimation of maxima quasispectrum’s component. Results of research of the proposed method on models of measuring signals with harmonic trends are submitted. It is shown, that the proposed method allows estimating frequency of a harmonic trend with a small error. The practical realization of the method is simple and does not require any appreciable computational costs, since only arithmetic operations of summation and subtraction are used.

Hardware Architecture for Real-Time Face Detection on Embedded Analog Video Cameras

This paper proposes novel hardware architecture for real-time face detection, which is efficient and suitable for embedded system. The proposed architecture is based on AdaBoost learning algorithm with Haar-like features and it aims to apply to a low-cost FPGA that can be applied to legacy analog cameras as a target platform. We propose the using of cumulative line sum to calculate integral image and an alternative method to avoid costly division for the computing of a standard deviation. The experimental results show that the processing time for a 320×240 pixel image is 42 frames per second with the 100MHz, which is about 3 times faster than previous works.

The Issue of Data Transfer for the Embedded SE on Mobile Devices

This paper describes the issue of data transfer for the embedded SE(Secure Element) on mobile devices. To enhance their security, current mobile devices provide the separate physical secure storage that contains the important and sensitive data for various security services. On the other hand, there is the problem of data migration for above secure storages such as the embedded SE. It is critical and essential problem in the embedded SEs because they cannot be removed from mobile devices. Thus, we explain the above problem in detail and would like to share the problem with service provider and mobile device manufacturers. To this end, we describe the security requirement for the secure data transfer of all data stored in embedded SEs. We also propose the secure data transfer schemes, which meet the proposed security requirements.

Self-certified Privacy-Preserving Scheme for Vehicle-to-Vehicle Communications

In vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs), vehicles should exchange safety-related messages with each other while processing them within short time in their embedded on-board units. Most previous authentication schemes unfortunately are not ready to be deployed for vehicle-to-vehicle communications owing to serious practical shortcomings, such as the enormous expense of building additional facilities (e.g., roadside units), computation and communication bottlenecks, a huge certificate revocation list, and low processing capacity. To alleviate these problems, we propose an efficient privacy-preserving scheme with which each vehicle (specifically, its embedded on-board unit) can produce valid one-time certificates without help from any third party. The scheme is cost-effective because additional facilities are not needed and it can also prevent bottlenecks on a certain trusted entity because certificates are self-produced.

Implementation of Side Channel Analysis Evaluation Boards for Cryptographic Software of Embedded Systems

Side channel analysis is a powerful cryptanalytic method to reveal secret information of cryptographic devices such as smart cards, USB tokens, OTP devices and secure embedded devices. To prevent side channel attacks we must implement countermeasures against it and evaluate security of these implementations. However, secure embedded devices except smart cards are not easy to evaluate security of them against SCA owing to their complicated components and circumstances. In this paper we designed boards for SCA evaluation of software implementations and tested them with block cipher algorithms.

The Effects of Multiple Scattering on Performance of Ballistic Channel Strained-Si Diodes

We have investigated the effects of multiple scattering on electron velocity, current and energy in the drain regions of the Strained-Si diodes. The covered cases in this study are ballistic channel Si-diodes with strained channel or drain, and with strained channel and drain, respectively. For a selected Ge content


the simulation results show that the velocity of electrons in the drain regions of strained channel and drain is lower than that of strained drain at the lower bias voltages (V


 <0.5V). At the higher bias voltages (V


 >0.5V), the velocity in the drain regions of strained channel and drain regions is lower than that of strained drain regions. Meanwhile, the velocity of electrons in the drain regions of ballistic channel diodes with strained channel and drain reduces due to optical phonon scattering, when bias voltage increases.

Compensation of Directional and Rotational Mismatch of Separate Stereo Cameras by Vanishing Point and Lines

The rectification of stereoscopic image is indispensable process to implement stereo vision system since the accuracy of estimated disparity strongly depends on the alignment of epipolar line. A new and simple rectification method is proposed in this paper especially when there are vanishing points and lines in two images from separate cameras. In order to compensate the mismatch of viewing directions of separate cameras, we estimate the vanishing points of two images and make common reference point. After that, the mismatch of rotation is compensated by calculating the relative distance between vanishing lines in two images. The proposed method is very efficient for rectification of separate stereo cameras and successfully applicable to the scene of streets or hallway where the vanishing points and lines can be easily obtained.

Design for Most Compatible Booting Model of Integrated Memory-Disk Based on ARM Linux

Storage Class Memory (SCM) such as STT-RAM, PCRAM, and ReRAM can be used as a DRAM or a NAND Flash memory. Owing to the non-volatile characteristic of SCM, its use as main memory can reduce the overhead during boot code loading and decompression whenever the system is switched on. Thus, a system with non-volatile memory suffers from less overhead during booting than a system with DRAM. The purpose of this study is to design a new booting model by analyzing the kernel ELF file and disassembling the current booting sequence for a more compatible startup model. To achieve this goal, we disassembled the ELF file format including the characteristics of the kernel binary. To verify the effectiveness of our theoretical model, the time cost in each step was measured using several different methods in our experimental setup. The results show that our approach reduces the time cost by approximately 45.25%.

Implementing a Touch Projection System That Is Not Dependent on Sensor Position

This paper introduces an approach to revise a standard projector system into a touch screen system that is not dependent on sensor position. While interactive whiteboards (IWBs) are commonly used for meetings and lectures, new equipment is often required to provide touch screen functionality. Some researchers have attempted to apply the touch function to existing projectors by using cameras. However, a sensor must be mounted to a beam projector as the integrated type, owing to the limits of the existing coordinate correction method. In this study, a touch function has been implemented using a standard projector, and without the need for beam projectors, by utilizing a different correction approach. As a result, this study demonstrated the feasibility of applying advanced touch screen functionality to existing projection equipment.

Personalized Information Gathering Using Implicit User Feedback in a Multiple Personal Device Environment

We propose a personalized information gathering system PerIGS that exploits implicit user feedback in a multiple personal device environment. PerIGS extracts imposing words that induce user’s choice from recommended news articles, and constructs user preference profile based on observed user behaviors. A user profile is shared by multiple personal devices, and PerIGS gathers, filters, and recommends news articles according to this shared profile. We organize the user profile in a hierarchical category structure to deal with the uncertainty of user interests. This structure also enables the system to track and recognize the changes of user interests for each domain more effectively. The results of a series of experiments measuring user satisfaction for recommended news articles indicated that PerIGS can effectively utilize user profiles for news filtering and recommendation.

Formal Specification of Malware Models in the Form of Colored Petri Nets

We propose a formal modeling method of malicious software that support its detection and countermeasure. In order to detect malware there is a need to posses either digital signatures or behavioral models. As the obfuscation techniques makes the malware almost undetectable the classic signature-based anti-virus tools must be supported by behavioral analysis. A malware hunting tool we developed bases on the formal models in the form of Colored Petri nets and the attitude to modeling is presented in this article.

Automatic Identification of Spatio-temporal Highway Congestion Patterns Using Historic Database

Spatio-temporal congestion evolution pattern can be reproduced using the VDS(Vehicle Detection System) historic speed dataset in the TMC(Traffic Management Center)s in that the historical dataset provides a pool of spatio-temporally experienced traffic conditions. It is known that traffic flow pattern spatio-temporally recurs and even non-recurrent congestion caused by incidents has patterns according to the incident conditions. This implies that the information should be useful for traffic prediction and traffic management. Traffic flow predictions are generally performed using black-box approaches such as neural network, genetic algorithm, and etc. Black-box approaches are not designed to provide an explanation of their modeling and reasoning process and not to estimate the benefits and the risks of the implementation of such a solution. That is why the TMCs are reluctant to employ the black-box approaches even though there are numerous valuable research papers published. In this context, this research proposed a more readily understandable and intuitively appealing data-driven approach and developed an algorithm for identifying congestion patterns for recurrent and non-recurrent congestion management and information provision.

Practical Biometrics On-Card Matching for Remote User Authentication Using Smart Cards

Advances in both smart card and biometric technologies have encouraged the development of multi-factor remote authentication schemes. For example, the usage of smart cards with biometrics allows the verification of users becomes more secure and reliable. Most of the existing schemes in the literature maintain the assumption that the biometric matching is an exact matching. However, this assumption is not realistic because the biometric features extracted from the same user at different time will be slightly different. In this paper, we concentrate on the security flaws on the matching procedure and propose a practical solution for biometrics match-on-card. Also, our scheme supports password and biometric change without require re-registration.

Linear and Differential Properties of Randomly Generated DES-Like Substitution Boxes

The Data Encryption Standard (DES) has been the most known block cipher since its release in 1976. It has been crypt-analyzed for a very long time and its design principles have been known to the cryptographic community. However, its Substitution Boxes (SBoxes) have inputs of length 6 bits and outputs of length 4 bits. In this paper, we analyze the Linear and Differential properties of DES-like SBoxes which are randomly generated. This shows that the DES SBoxes were not randomly picked up during their design process. Most importantly, it shows what possibly can be improved Linearly and Differentially in designing such SBoxes if we have the choice of re-designing the block cipher again or re-using some of its design components.

Modelling of APGAS Programming Systems with Using of P/T Petri Process Nets

Property-preserving Petri net process algebras (PPPA) were designed for the specification and verification of the Petri net processes. PPPA does not need to verify the composition of the Petri net processes because all their algebraic operators preserve the specified set of the properties. These original PPPA are generalized for the newly introduced class of the P/T Petri process nets (PPPN) in this article. The only one PLACE-SUBST algebraic operator is defined for the class of PPPN and its chosen properties are presented. The PPPN can be with the support of the PLACE-SUBST operator easily applied into the area of design, simulation and verification of multithreading programming systems executed in parallel or distributed environment. This fact is then demonstrated on the simple example based on the Asynchronous Partitioned Global Address Space (APGAS) programming model used in the High Performance (Cloud) Computing environment and implemented in the X10 programming language.

A Semantic Social Bookmarking System Based on a Wiki-Like Approach

The advent of Web 2.0 has provided users with the ability to actively participate in the building, management and sharing of contents. This new modality to experience the Web has led to the development of new ways of collaborative knowledge creation, which have promoted the spread of the earliest user-generated contents, not only textual ones but also multimedia ones. The most important example of collaborative knowledge base on the Web is definitely Wikipedia. The increasing involvement of users in the management and organization of Web content has encouraged the development of other forms related to the knowledge organization and dissemination, including social networks and social bookmarking systems. The proposed work deals with the development of an innovative system of social bookmarking based on a semantic wiki-like approach, characterized by an ex-ante classification conducted on two axes: one vertical (hierarchical and taxonomic axis) and one horizontal (folksonomic axis through tags).

A Kanban-Based Methodology to Define Taxonomies and Folksonomies in KMS

Document management is not often handled appropriately by organisations, if at all. Despite that, and despite the lack of structure in documents, organisations must face regulations that require owning a document collection with semantic content. The technique based on taxonomies and folksonomies can easily produce an adequate semantic classification for documents. It requires an adequate setup among the domain experts that apply it. The approach we propose uses Lean Kanban to coordinate the phases of definition, validation and implementation of taxonomies and folksonomies. It helps organisations to create a semantic classification of existing document resources, making them ready to be used in ways that were not possible before. At the same time, it helps to improve the quality of work of the organisation itself, adding speed to document search.

Robust link-oriented Routing Protocol (ROR) for Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks

In this paper Robust link-oriented Routing (ROR) protocol is proposed taking consideration of fast developing vehicular ad hoc network technologies in the urban area. Using the geographical information and speed of vehicles, a future vehicular network topology is anticipated with our prediction algorithm. Based on this prediction, routing overhead such as route reconfiguration due to broken links is minimized by choosing the most robust route. Also, transmission failure can be minimized by establishing a new route before the existing route is completely disconnected. By way of traffic and network simulation, the proposed approach shows improvement in packet transmission rate and low latency, with a slight hop count increase. Moreover, the simulation result shows that the proposed route maintenance scheme reduces the transmission failure dramatically.

Multi-Focus Image Fusion by Using a Pixel-Based SML Comparison Map

The fusion of images which have different focal lengths can play important role for visual enhancement. It can also be used as a pre-processing step for various processing modules such as edge detection and feature extraction in order to improve the performances. In this paper, we propose a pixel-based algorithm which uses SML(Sum of Modified-Laplacian) as a focus measure for multi-focus image fusion. After the centers of focused areas in images are calculated, the 2-level SML comparison map is made by measuring the distance from the centers. And we adopt the median filter on the comparison map to reduce the effect of noise. Simulation results showed the proposed algorithm can successfully improve the visual quality of combined image subjectively as well as objectively.

Category-Based an Intelligent Search System Using a Variety of Recommendation Data

As the number of Internet users and the number of accessible Web pages grows, it is becoming increasingly difficult for users to find documents that are relevant to their particular needs. In ubiquitous computing environments, personalized agents have to learn user’s preferences in order to assist them. If users search using their profile data, they are able to find relevant documents. So the proposed intelligent search system is collecting information of a user activity and automatically creates the user profile. In addition, this system provides a variety of recommendation data for users. In other words, topics cloud, similar to the user, author navigation and frequently seen keyword/documentation systems are automatically recommended. The feature of the proposed system is re-cycling system using the user’s search results and used recommend systems. In this paper, we had implemented and evaluated the category-based personalized search system.

Efficient Evaluation of Window Join Aggregates in Data Stream Processing

This paper presents a method to evaluate join aggregates efficiently when overlapping windows are used for data stream processing. To avoid duplicate processing, the proposed method divides overlapping windows into disjoint segments, which is called window panes in literature. For each pane, join results are produced. The pane-level join results are then merged to compute window-level aggregate results. Our experimental results show that the proposed method has significant performance benefits.

Cost Analysis of Time-Slide Window Joins

Sliding window equijoins can be implemented in two ways. One is to allocate a hash table for each data stream, while the other is to allocate a table for each set of tuples arriving for the slide interval. In the latter, multiple hash tables can be allocated for each stream. In this paper, we analyze costs of the two approaches, and show that using multiple hash tables for each stream always provides better performance than using a single table per stream. We also provide experimental results that coincide with the analysis result.

TAC Reconfiguration for Paging Optimization in LTE-Based Mobile Communication Systems

In LTE-based mobile communication systems, a Tracking Area Code (TAC) is defined by a group of cells for paging operation. The existing TAC configuration has been made manually by considering only the geographical location of cells, and thus it tends to induce an imbalanced TAC configuration and a low paging success rate. In this paper, we propose a reconfiguration of the existing TAC configurations to get a more balanced TAC configuration and to increase the paging success rate. The proposed TAC reconfiguration scheme is designed by considering the mobility (handover) ratio of mobile users between cells as well as the number of users in cells. From the performance analysis with real traffic data of SK Telecom in Korea, we see that the proposed scheme can provide more balanced TAC configurations and also improve the paging success rates by 8%, compared to the existing TAC configurations.

A Testing and Treatment System Model for Unilateral Neglect Patient Based on Visual Feedback Training

Thanks to the development of the IT convergence technology, the healthcare and wellness industry have been being developed to provide effective healthcare services. In particular, smart devices such as tablet PC or smart phone may be used for rehabilitation of the unilateral neglect patient after stroke. However, existing methods such as Albert Test, Line-bisection Test, and Star-Cancellation Test have been used in healthcare industry even though they have some disadvantages. Thus, we propose a testing and treatment system model for unilateral neglect patient based on smart devices that are portable and are easy to use anytime, anywhere. Particularly, we try to improve the existing evaluation models by developing digital testing methods to mobile applications. Based on visual feedback training methods, we try to develop three treatment models such as card flipping, obstacle avoidance, and human balance.

Extraction of Object Position Information Using the Natural Image Marker

This paper presents a method to extract the position and size of objects in movie or drama scenes by creating natural image marker from user images that were fed into and recognizing the created natural image marker. First, the range of natural image marker candidate that the user will utilize in the image is defined. Then, the defined natural image marker candidate is created and analyzed to recommend final natural image marker. If the user image and natural image marker were different, the initial value was set from the user, allowing the user to edit the position or size of object. The position and size information of character are extracted by recognizing the natural image marker. The character image is matched with the image by using the extracted information. Therefore, the position of object can be estimated by frame, on which basis services applying various augmented reality techniques can be developed.

Energy-Aware GPU-RAID Scheduling for Reducing Energy Consumption in Cloud Storage Systems

Recently, big-data processing applications require a fast and energy-aware cloud storage system. Erasure coding in redundant array of inexpensive disks (RAID) consumes a lot of energy and reduces the performance of cloud storage systems. This is because traditional RAID erasure coding performance is limited to sequential nature of CPU. This paper proposes an energy-aware GPU based flash array cloud storage system with higher input/output performance and less energy consumption. The proposed cloud storage system provides GPU–redundant array of inexpensive disks (GPU-RAID) at a target server based on all–flash array storage. GPU-RAID differs from existing RAID in that it reduces the number of CPU cycles and coding time to generate parity data. Experimental results show that the write performance and read performance GPU-RAID is 33% and 41% higher than that of Linux-RAID, respectively. The results also show that the energy consumption of GPU-RAID is 43% less than that of Linux-RAID.

Meanshift Segmentation Guided Spatially Adaptive Histogram Equalization

We propose a meanshift segmentation guided local histogram equalization method which enhances the visual quality of a single low contrast image. The meanshift segmentation partitions the image into local regions according to the spatial and intensity distances between pixels. After the image is partitioned into local regions, the local range of intensity and the number of pixels in the local region are taken into account to compute the new local range of intensity. The local contrast is well enhanced with the proposed method even in regions which have small histogram components, for which the global histogram equalization fails to obtain an enhanced contrast.

Three-Dimensional Target Recognition Under Photon-Starved Conditions Using Photon Counting Axially Distributed Sensing and Nonlinear Correlation

In this paper, we present 3D target recognition under photon-starved conditions using axially distributed sensing and nonlinear correlation. 3D object in low light level environment may not be recognized due to lack of the number of photons. To detect active photons for 3D objects, photon counting imaging system can be used. In addition, axially distributed sensing can be introduced to visualize 3D images. However, it may be difficult to recognize 3D object because the visual quality of the 3D image may be remedied under photon-starved condition. To solve this problem, nonlinear correlation technique can be applied for 3D target recognition. We implement optical experiments to prove our 3D target recognition system.

Cache View Based Top-k Query Processing for Encrypted Data Analysis

With the development of cloud computing technology, database outsourcing has recently attracted much interest. However, because the users’ data may contain sensitive personal information, it is essential to encrypt the database to be outsourced for protecting users’ privacy. Meanwhile, cache-based Top-k query processing schemes were proposed to support efficient analysis of a large amount of data. However, the existing works have a problem that they cannot process a Top-k query on the encrypted data. To solve this problem, we propose a cache view-based Top-k query processing algorithm by using an order-preserving encrypted index. To improve the performance of the top-k query processing, we newly design a score function for calculating the similarity between a given query and the cached query. Finally, we show from the performance analysis that our scheme outperforms the existing work in terms of the query processing time and the query result accuracy.

Interactive Mobile Learning Environment for Processing Computational Science Simulation Task

Influence of IT revolution represented by Internet in late 20th century keep growing with glaring development of computer and network performance, constructing cyber infrastructure. The paradigm has already changed education and life style rapidly. Especially, It affects behaviors of growing generation and learning style. Method of motivating interest of engineering and science is needed, reflecting growing generation’s learning style. Web contents also get a lot of changes with rapid propagation of web accessible devices like smartphone and tablet pc. Existing web contents were implemented only for PC and supplied same contents regardless of devices. For servicing contents fit for different mobile environment, same contents are developed for every devices. As a result, development duration is enlarged and maintenance expenditure is increased. To resolve these problem, we will develop interactive mobile learning environment for computational science simulation task processing in this paper. It is better than existing education based on experiment in that it enables user to access the service everywhere with mobile device and its maintenance expenditure is cheaper than existing laboratory maintenance. we need not to consider each OS platform because it uses web page platform.

Design of Interaction Coordination in Electric Vehicle Information Service Frameworks

This paper designs an interaction mechanism for the service architecture of electric vehicle information systems, focusing on a tour scheduler capable of reducing waiting time involved in battery charging. A common database table coordinates the interaction between the cost estimator which preprocesses traffic information and the tour scheduler which executes a variant of traveling salesman problem solver. According to the criticality of the link cost change, the cost update propagates to the tour scheduler and thus mobile applications either in periodic or an event-driven manner. Each entity, implemented in its own language for better development and run-time efficiency, exchanges message with specific database connectivity and object access protocols, for the sake of implementing a specific information service. The interaction design opens a way for diverse entities to collaborate to implement a new information service.

Privacy Protection of Medical Imagery Using Reversible Watermarking

This paper addresses a high capacity and quality reversible watermarking algorithm for medical imagery which is directly applicable in medical scanners or PACS systems. After the characteristics of medical imagery are analyzed, a reversible watermarking algorithm using difference histogram shifting is modified. The watermark that is private information is inserted into the original image by modifying the difference histogram of adjacent pixels. After the watermark is extracted from the watermarked image, the original image is perfectly restored. The inherent overflow and underflow issues are solved by applying an error compensation technique. In experiments using various medical imagery such as MRI, CT and X-Ray, the performance is analyzed in aspect of capacity, perceptual quality and the reconstruction rates. Results show that the algorithm performs well for medical imagery.

A Flexible Page Storage Model for Mixed OLAP and OLTP Workloads

Previous page storage models do not show good performance in mixed OLAP and OLTP workloads because they are originally designed for only one of these workload types. Therefore, we propose a new page storage model for mixed OLAP and OLTP workloads which is based on column groups. We also present a dynamic page layout method that generates correlated column groups by analyzing the current workload and then dynamically reorganizes the data pages. The proposed page model shows a considerable performance improvement in the mixed workload environment.

Cooperative Communication Protocol Based on EDCA in IEEE 802.11e WLANs

The IEEE 802.11 standard provides multiple transmission rates. When using multiple transmission rates, the capacity of wireless LAN improves, but the performance anomaly problem may occur. Cooperative communications were introduced to alleviate the performance anomaly problem with the help of relay nodes with higher transmission rates. Previous cooperative communications protocols are based on the IEEE 802.11 DCF MAC protocol. In this paper, we apply the IEEE 802.11e EDCA features such as TXOP and block ACK for cooperative communications. Simulation results show that the proposed protocol works well and improves network performance.

Data Processing Framework for Electric Vehicle-Generated Streams Using Hadoop

This paper constructs a data processing framework for massive data streams created from electric vehicle-related business models, such as vehicle tracking systems, charger status monitor systems, and vehicle sharing services. Hadoop is employed to cope with the size and heterogeneity of spatio-temporal streams, while PIG provides a data flow style script interface. Focused on the currently available state-of-charge streams and charger operation status records, our framework converts the stream into Hadoop-readable format and makes a PIG script filter a core subset essential for further analysis required by battery consumption modeling and power demand tracing. By this framework, we can explore the massive amount of data which will be collected from our electric vehicle service system, possibly making it possible to design a new sophisticated consumer-friendly information services.

Efficient Indexing for OLAP Query Processing with MapReduce

As in the conventional databases, an index can be used to improve performance in MapReduce when processing OLAP queries with it. Regarding this, Hadoop++ suggested Trojan index to reduce network I/O by storing a partitioned data and its index together into a same

data block

, which is a data storage unit in MapReduce. However, this approach requires complex computation to put the data and index into the same block, from which index generation time can significantly increase. In this paper, we propose a new indexing method to resolve this issue. The basic idea of the proposed method is to insert the data and index into separate blocks, and force them to be co-located in the same node. Our experimental results show that the proposed method provides better performance than the existing indexing scheme, including the Trojan index.

The purpose of this study is empirically focused on that explores and defines the cognitive and behavioral features of millennial (the generation born between 1980 and 1993) generation people in the basis of three theoretical factors, ‘reputation’, ‘emotional satisfaction’, and ‘individual characteristics’ concerning the degree of involvement in gamification contents, so-called mobile game application of social donation program converging with ICT and sharing economy. For this, respondents surveyed are targeted on young people in their twenties who are experienced in mobile game and familiar with the smart devices and wireless network. To conclude, this study proposes the theoretical definition of three differentiated millennial consumer groups through hierarchical clustering analysis and a research framework segmenting market or consumer in a marketing perspective as a preceding research for future studies.

A Study of Burst Transfer Generation

Modern embedded systems are constrained by several factors such as performance, power consumption and size. Since those constraints are affected by memory subsystems, efficient use of a fast data transfer technique in memory subsystems is ever becoming more important. A burst transfer is well known technique to improve the performance of memory subsystems. The burst transfer capability offers an average access time reduction of more than 65 percent for an eight-word sequential transfer. However, the problem of utilizing burst transfer to improve memory performance has not been generally addressed. Thus, we propose an approach that provides the maximum utilization of burst transfer for memory accesses with local variables in code by reorganizing variables placement.

Mitigation of Selfish Carrier-Sense Behavior in Wi-Fi Networks

In this paper, we propose a method to detect and mitigate the selfish behavior in 802.11 Wi-Fi networks. The proposed approach promptly detects the presence of selfish misbehavior in a Wi-Fi network based on the distinct characteristics of selfish carrier sensing: the selfish node will (i) cause a severe asymmetry between uplink and downlink collision probabilities, and (ii) have shorter inter-packet backoff intervals than legitimate nodes. To properly mitigate the impact of selfish behavior on system performance, we present a simple 802.11-compliant mitigation mechanism to be used by the AP. The effectiveness of the proposed scheme is evaluated via extensive simulation with ns-2. Our evaluation results show that the proposed approach accurately detects the misbehavior and mitigates the selfish carrier sense behavior effectively.

The Real-Time Monitoring System of Social Big Data for Disaster Management

In recent years, social media has become ubiquitous and important for social networking and content sharing. Especially, in the disaster area, social media supports backchannel communications, allowing for wide-scale interaction that can be collectively resourceful, self-policing, and generative of information that is otherwise hard to obtain. At the time of great Japan and Haiti earthquake, social media channels actively were utilizing to grasp the damage, to warn, and to exchange information. In this paper, we introduce the real-time monitoring system of social big data, named Social Big Board, for disaster management. This system crawls social big data, especially Twitter, analyses the disaster-related tweets in real time, and displays disaster issues and trends in a map. We substantiated that there is the potential for utilization on our system to monitor disasters situations and trends in real time and grasp the point from big tweet data.

MAST: Multi-Level Associated Sector Translation for NAND Flash Memory-Based Storage System

NAND flash memories have been widely adopted as storage on computing devices, since it has strong effectiveness on performance. However, asymmetric operation performance of NAND flash memories still impedes high performance. To mitigate this performance hurdle, most storage devices of NAND flash memories have used Flash Translation Layer (FTL). In this paper, we propose a novel workload-aware FTL mapping policy, called Multi-level Associated Sector Translation (MAST). MAST divides log block depending on characteristics of data, and dynamically detects hot pages to avoid unnecessary merge operations of FTL. In experimental results, we show that our approach outperforms FAST method by 10% and LAST by 3%, respectively.

Remote-Launch: Borrowing Secure TCB for Constructing Trustworthy Computing Platform

Commodity operating systems have become extremely large to provide a lot of services, and then their vulnerability has been targeted by malicious attack. In order to increase security in operating system, there have been many attempts to reduce the size of Trust Computing Base (TCB). However, most of the approaches have applicability limitations due to hypervisor vulnerability and additional hardware requirements. To address these limitations, instead of reducing TCB size, we propose a novel approach to enhance the security of the system. We hide secure TCB for sensitive applications, and thus build an isolated secure environment using a well-equipped infrastructure. For evaluation, we implement a prototype, called Remote-Launch, which runs a security-sensitive process on the borrowed secure TCB.

Human Action Recognition Using Product Manifold Theory and Procrustes Shape Analysis

The shape space that is composed of the configurations matrices of landmarks extracted from a given video is represented by a product manifold. Therefore, we proposed new method that can recognize a human action using mathematical properties of product manifold and Procrustes shape analysis. In the first step, we factorize each volume images belonging to training dataset as a time ordering sequence of images, and we extract pre-shape configuration vector of landmarks from each frames consisting an image sequence. Then, we have obtained a random sample of pre-shape configuration vectors from all videos stored in tanning database by using similar procedure, and we compute mean shape vectors for random sample of extracted shape vectors. In the second step, in order to recognize the query human action video, we derive a sequence of the pre-shape configuration vectors from given query video, and we project each shape vector on the tangent space with respect to the pole taking on a sequence of the mean shape vectors corresponding with a target video. We recognize a query video as target video that can minimize the distance between two sequences of the pre-shape vectors and the mean shape vectors. We assess the performance of our method using Weizmann human action dataset. Experimental results reveal that the proposed method performs generally very well on this dataset.

Zombie PC Detection and Treatment Model on Software-Defined Network

The DDoS attack is one of the biggest threats in traditional network infrastructures which increases every year. This threat of making the target unserviceable still exists in the newly arising network architecture called SDN. In this paper, we propose a model for detecting zombie PCs, which are systems infected by malware used for launching the DDoS attack, on the SDN. Using this model, we can block malicious packets from the local network which generates them. It can also detect and treat zombie PCs, vulnerable hosts, to improve the security of both end host and local network.

Design and Implementation of System for Assets and Insolvency Prediction Applied to Industries Based on AHP and Forensic Readiness

Although it is important to analyze and predict corporate situation accurately in the rapidly changing environment, there are few systems to support that. Therefore, in this paper, we propose the integrated system which can monitor, predict and evaluate corporate current situation using AHP technique. As AHP, one of the decision making techniques, is based on hierarchical analysis and pairwise comparison method, it can provide fraud classification, assessment list and risk detection scenario through industrial sector analysis. The proposed system is linked to the existing legacy systems and it performs analyzing and verifying items of assets and insolvency evaluation which a corporation needs. Therefore the proposed system can manage the corporate assets and risk reliably and it can increase the company’s competitiveness and profit through non-performing assets recovery. In addition, the proposed system prevents complaints, corporate incidents and legal cost by adopting forensic readiness and forensic monitoring system which collects digital evidences about criminal and civil dispute in advance.

Path Information Based Packet Verification for Authentication of SDN Network Manager

In this paper we propose new authentication scheme that is suitable for Software-Defined Networks (SDN). Basically our approach is based on One Time Password (OTP). To check legitimacy of OTP, our model uses an additional parameter, which is related with the path information where packet passed through. This is possible because SDN controller can monitor the entire network status. Proposed scheme can be briefly described as follows. First, a specific path is assigned to the network manager and his OTP packet should pass through this path. The controller modifies corresponding flow rules to forward OTP packet along correct direction. Consequently, OTP packet of legal user will be forwarded on pre-assigned path. Using this model, SDN controller can be protected from attack even when attacker knows the OTP because SDN controller accepts OTP packet only if it is forwarded along specific path. Finally we analyzed overhead caused from our authentication mechanism.

Detection Methods for Disaster by Lexical Patterns

Recently, there is lots of interesting about Bigdata in Korea. Social Bigdata which is created by socialmedia has people’s opinion and idea, so government and other organizations want to use social Bigdata to find out public opinion and information. Utilization of this social Bigdata has been studied in disaster management. In our institute, we studied a way to quickly detecting disaster occurrence through the analysis of social Bigdata. In this paper, we describe the detecting method using the lexical patterns, and we present the results of applying this method on tweets related to three types of disaster. There are other results depending on the types of disaster. In this experience, tweets of collapse accident are the best result to apply the lexical patterns(94% accuracy). So the possibility of detection disaster using the lexical patterns was confirmed.

GUI Programming Scheme for Low Storage Usage in Lightweight Computing Environment

A small terminal node with compuation and communication capability is a basic building block for IoT. It is deployed on every objects with sensors and low power wireless communication features and interacts with human as well as other physical or virtual objects. As such, it transmits collected information for IoT to provide intellectual services. Although the progress has been made consistently in sensor technology, human’s intermediate intervention is still required in the industries or the facilities critical for vigilance, security and inspection. Thus, a GUI support in terminal node is needed to make a correct and instant interaction with human. Because of the lightweight computing environment where the terminal node has very small size of storage as well as low performance in computation and communication, the trite GUI programming scheme that makes high computation and memory requirement is inapplicable to the terminal node. In this paper, two image data structures are presented to minimize space requirement of storage for character fonts. They do not reduce the storage requirement for fonts but also decrease communication traffic over the low power and lossy network.

Position Estimation of Multiple Light Sources for Augmented Reality

In recent decades, advances in research and hardware have significantly improved the quality of augmented reality applications. However, efforts of combining real illumination and virtual illumination have made little progress thus far [1, 2, 3]. In this paper, we propose the position estimation of multiple light sources using a specular reflective sphere placed in front of a camera for relighting in augmented reality applications. For position estimation, we take images to estimate light directions, and then, we estimate the positions of light sources in real time using a sequence of images taken by moving the camera. Our method improves illuminant integration, as more accurate shadows of virtual objects are obtained in comparison with the traditional methods of light source estimation [4, 5, 6, 7]. Further, we obtain not only the direction but also the position of light sources.

A Testing Method for AUTOSAR Software Components Using Virtual Prototyping by Modification of OSEK Operating System

As more and more electronic devices and their software are applied to vehicles nowadays, the standard on development of vehicular software is getting important to get reusability and structured architecture. AUTOSAR is a leading standard and the majority of companies are using it around the world. However it is hard for software developers to test their own AUTOSAR software components because the testing of the software components needs its physical hardware and high setup cost. To overcome the difficulty, some researchers are working on virtual prototyping as a solution. We propose a method to apply virtual prototyping in AUTOSAR software components by modification of the existing open-source OSEK operating system.

A Compensation-Based Cooperative Mechanism to Improve the Performance of IEEE 802.11 WLANs

In a saturated IEEE 802.11-based wireless network, stations tend to face back-off delay and retransmissions because of the basic characteristics of DCF based on CSMA/CA. Several relay-based cooperative mechanisms have been proposed to improve the performance of the IEEE 802.11 WLAN. However, they require complicate procedures for the optimal cooperation among stations. In this paper, we propose a compensation-based cooperative mechanism that can improve the throughput of the IEE 802.11 WLAN and give fair chances to stations. The main idea of our proposed mechanism is that when the transmission of a station fails, one of its neighbor nodes with better channel quality transmits the failed frame as well as its own data frame using the MSDU aggregation scheme. After that, when the failed station grabs the channel, it gives its right to transmit to the proxy node as compensation. Simulation results show that the proposed mechanism significantly improves throughput and throughput gain.

RUDP Design and Implementation Using OPNET Simulation

TCP suffers from high packet loss rate and tends to overreact to the ever-changing network dynamism of wireless network that experiences considerable delay variation. And also, it undergoes backoff state repeatedly and enters into a slow starting mode, which in turn leading to the low throughput and excessive end-to-end latency. On the other hand, UDP does not consider recovery of lost packets and the problem of out-of-order delivery resulting in much more data loss. For these reasons, RUDP was proposed at the IETF Internet Draft[1]. In this paper, we focused on the minimization of data packet delay time and aimed to reduce packet loss and deliver the data in order with the proposed protocol. Hence, using OPNET Modeler 14.5 PL8 program under the identical environment, we conducted the comparative analysis simulations between TCP, UDP and RUDP considering "Retransmission function" and sequence acknowledge numbers that are used to monitor packet loss and the order of the received packets, and various timers as major testing factors. The purposes of the simulations conducted for RUDP in this paper are to supplement "unreliable" characteristics of UDP, which is considered as a major problem, and thereby produce reliable data like TCP produces by making use of better characteristic of UDP not just imitating TCP’s characteristics.

Provisioning Virtual Infrastructure to Cloud Service Consumer in Perspective of Brokering VM Placement

From cloud computing environment, cloud service consumers may request virtual infrastructure resources and cloud service providers may provision the virtual resources e.g. virtual machines based on the diverse provisioning options. Through the cloud service broker, the cloud service consumers acquire their on-demand services instead of contacting to each cloud service provider. In order to provide VM services in on-demand infrastructure clouds, we deal with the requirements of each cloud stakeholders and metadata from the view of cloud service broker.

Method of Graph Node Fusion and Its Application on Bus Information Systems

One of the most popular service types that Bus Information Systems (BIS) provide is bus line recommedation. Given a start bus stop and a destination bus stop, a bus line recommendation system returns a list of bus lines that run through those bus stops. That is, the user can reach the destination bus stop by taking the buses running the bus lines returned by the bus line recommendation system. We can find recommended bus lines by analysing a directed graph that represents bus stops and bus lines. Bus stops are represented as nodes in the graph and bus lines are represented as arcs. This paper applies node fusion algorithm in order to improve the efficiency of bus line recommendation.

The most common goal of CCTV system is prevention of crime and disorder by tracking the objects. In the future, the efficiently usage of CCTV is the protection of crime based the tracking system for predication about abnormal situations. In this paper, we propose a tracking model for prevention of crime by using Kalman Filter. The tracking model uses some extracted characteristic of objects and relationships among objects from CCTVs on the street. So, this paper studies the tracking model that consists of three steps as follows; object assessment, situation assessment, and risk assessment.

Application Authentication and Secure Key Management Scheme Using MTM

In mobile environments, application authentication is necessarily requested for providing secure service and managing transparently the source of application. In this paper, we propose an application authentication and key management for application using a Mobile Trusted Module (MTM). After application is normally authenticated using the expected value stored in MTM, we generate a Storage Root Key (SRK) to independently operate key management system for each application. SRK for each application is created as similar as take ownership process of a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) by using two hash values. Proposed scheme will solve the performance problem of a conventional MTM key management scheme and provide more secure environment as a consequence of key isolation between applications.

Also, we apply skyline query mechanism to select an optimized result. The evaluation of proposed mechanism shows that a significant amount of energy is saved without sacrificing the limited performance.

Awareness Home Automation System Based on User Behavior through Mobile Sensing

This paper proposed awareness home automation system (HAS) based on mobile sensing. Some of the ideas have been proposed in HAS but most of them still requires human intervention such as click the button, voice commands, etc. We want to design and develop HAS which can understand and comprehend the user desires without having to wait for commands from the user (awareness HAS). In this research we exploit two of android sensors. First, accelerometer sensor for identification and activity recognition, second, magnetic field for user indoor positioning system and defined the context related to physical environment. This paper presenting the result of used both of the sensors for developing awareness HAS.

A Brokering Service Design for Vehicle-To-Grid Electricity Trades

This paper presents an interaction mechanism between EVs (Electric Vehicles) and a microgrid to broker electricity trades according to V2G (Vehicle-to-Grid) scenarios, aiming at improving energy efficiency by balancing supply and demand. Each EV submits a sales request specifying the earliest and the latest arrival times, plug-in length estimation, and the amount to sell. The brokering agent is activated to assign those requests not yet accepted by submitters to appropriate time slots until either the predefined deadline expires or its electricity demand is met. The scheduler, possibly running on the aggregator of the microgrid, traverses the search space to find the best schedule capable of minimizing the lacking amount of energy for the given time interval. The proposed scheme can enhance the profit for EV owners, cut down energy cost for microgrids, and shift the peak load for the power system.

Fractional Frequency Reuse (FFR) Based Overlap Resource Power Control for Interference Mitigation in an LTE-Advanced Network with Device-to-Device Communication

In this paper, a novel fractional frequency reuse (FFR) based overlap resource power control (FFR.OVER) is proposed. In the FFR.OVER scheme, the FFR technique is implemented in combination with the power control mechanism. For macrocell users (mUEs), the power is uniform in the central and edge regions. The D2D receiver (D2DR) uses uniform power to transmit data in all regions except for the areas where more than one D2DRs use the same resource block (RB). In such situations, the power for those D2DRs which compete for the resource with mUE is reduced to low power in order to avoid further generation of interference. The simulation results show that the proposed scheme brings a significant increase in overall system capacity as well as the user outage probability in the system.

A Repeated Non-Cooperative Game Theoretic Approach to Energy-Efficiency of Cellular Networks

In cellular networks, the base station (BSs) is obligated to more than 50% energy consumption of the networks. Therefore, reducing the power consumption of BSs is crucial to enhance the energy efficiency of cellular networks. Cognitive radio, an enabling technology, is a new system design paradigm for next cellular networks. In this paper, we proposed an optimal bandwidth sharing based on the selection scheme which exploited the cooperation between multiple primary base stations (PBSs) and several secondary base stations (SBSs) to enhance the spectrum as well as energy efficiency of cellular networks.

On QoS Provisioning Based on User Mobility Patterns for Proxy Mobile IPv6 Networks

One of the major challenges in the design of mobile systems will be provisioning of Quality of Service (QoS) that application’s demands guarantee under diverse networking infrastructure. We believe that it is necessary to use resource reservation and adaptation techniques to deliver these QoS guarantee to applications. However, the reservation and pre-configuration in the entire service region is overly aggressive, and results in schemes that are extremely inefficient and unreliable. To overcome those, the mobility pattern of a user can be exploited. If the movement of a user is known, the reservation and configuration procedure can be limited to the regions of the network a user is likely to visit. Our proposed scheme is not sensitive to increasing of the search cost than other schemes, and it shows that the total cost is lower than others as the Session-to-Mobility Ratio (SMR) increases.

IO Cost Evaluation of OLAP Query Processing with MapReduce

Google’s MapReduce has emerged as a popular framework for data-intensive computing. It is well-known by its elastic scalability and fine-grained fault tolerance. On the other hand, there are some debates in its efficiency. Especially, local and network I/Os can be a primary factor that degrades the performance of MapReduce, because it follows a data shipping paradigm where many partitioned data blocks move along distributed nodes. In this paper, we conduct a performance study to examine the I/O cost of MapReduce. Our results show that the I/O cost accounts for about 80% of the total processing cost when processing OLAP queries in the MapReduce platform.

A Two-Layer Cluster Head Selection Based on Distance in Wireless Sensor Networks

Energy-awareness is a critical issue in wireless sensor networks (WSNs). Clustering protocol is a efficient way to prolong the network lifetime. To balancing cluster, it’s important to select cluster head(CH). Previous researches have utilized information for selecting CH, probability, residual energy, density of neighbor nodes, neighbor energy and so on. However, some are not sufficient to uniformly distribute CH, others spend numerous energy to collect necessary information. We propose a two-layer cluster head selection based on distance. Sensor nodes are divided into two layer, first layer and second layer that is sub layer of first layer, and sequence per each layer according to distance between nodes and base station(BS). CH is selected in same sequence of second layer without communication with other nodes. Simulations show that this proposed protocol could enhance the network lifetime.

The Dynamic Group Authentication Scheme for P2P Based Mobile Commerce

In a typical server-client business model, a server should be in charge of both the authentication of the paid customer and the distribution of the contents. The drawback of it is that if the customers’ requests go on growing rapidly for the specific contents, the quality of service is degraded due to the server overload or bandwidth restriction. On the contrary, in a P2P network, if more and more users participate in the service, the quality of service is improved, because a peer (a customer) that has same contents can act as a seeder (a server). But, the drawback of the P2P is that there are too many servers to manage, thus it’s more prone to occur illegal distribution of contents. In this paper, we propose the dynamic group authentication scheme suited to P2P based contents streaming. The proposed scheme consists of group key generation, key update, signature generation, and verification protocols. It can control the seeder’s state whether the seeder is joining or leaving the network. The proposed scheme can be applied to hybrid P2P based business model where the index server covers sales transactions and the contents are distributed by the P2P protocol.

Effects on Mapping the VCPUs to the Physical CPUs in Para-Virtualization

Virtualization is to provide virtually all types of technologies used on the physical PC. However, in a virtualization technique, services can be modified and adjusted to satisfy user requirements, the cost of hardware purchases and hardware constructions is not occurred. Beside, this virtualization supports multiple guest operating systems on a host OS. It is helpful for virtualization to build cost-effective IT infrastructure. In general, virtualization can be classified into two categories: full virtualization and para-virtualization. Full virtualization does not require a direct interaction with host resources, but in para-virtualization a direct interaction with frequently used resources can substantially improve performance of computation. In this paper, we study the effects on the performance when the VCPUs map to the physical CPUs in para-virtualization. And we study the effects of the mapped VCPU in an overcommit environment that the number of virtual cores is more than the number of physical cores. The purpose of these experiments is to find out the best CPU allocation method in various environments of para-virtualization.

Smart Emergency Rescue System Based on Biometric Authentication

As a social infrastructure, emergency rescue system aims increased survival rate. It consists of several steps: spot emergency, report emergency, give first aid and send to hospital. In order to efficiently use the golden time, the survival time of emergency patient, rapid action and proper first aid are necessary. Since emergency situation is reported verbally nowadays, it’s very difficult to identify the patient and the emergency location and hence, the golden time is wasted. Even though there were some attempts to use smartphone GPS sensor to figure out the emergency location, those were abortive since people felt far less responsibility of reporting emergency through smartphone application than through verbal explanation. Smartphone is a complex device that has various sensors of various functions. Recently, with the advent of the finger scan sensor, users are able to not only capture facial images and record voices but also scan fingerprint that can be used to identify a person. In this study, we propose a biometric based emergency rescue system, which utilizes various smartphone sensors. This system minimizes the time waste by automatically locating emergency spot and identifying both the reporter and the patient. Biometric data is used to identify the reporter and the patient. Since reporter is identified with biometric data, reporter holds responsibility of the report. Furthermore, trained technician gives proper first aid instruction to the reporter via visual telecommunication and this process is encrypted to ensure privacy.

Evaluation of the Synchronous Mobile Learning System Supporting Tablets for Instructor and Student

We present the evaluation of our synchronous mobile learning system that supports tablet clients for instructor and student. It allows students to watch an instructor and slide with annotation as well as to send feedback to instructor and interact through text chat in real time with their tablets. For evaluation, we first identified the categories that affect the effectiveness of learning: learning: content delivery; feedback from the student and interaction; and student’s concentration on learning. Then, we had a student group use the prototype and surveyed them about each category. Then, we further looked into the result in each category, had discussion with students and identified aspects that make the system less effective than the conventional classroom learning environment. Then, we surveyed them about these aspects.

On Designing an Effective Training Set for Information Extraction

While training set design has received less attention from academia compared to its significance, it becomes crucial in big data environments. We propose a novel way to construct a training set for information extraction. An effective data collection considering the trade-off between system quality and annotation difficulty is the core of the proposed approach. Instead of a random collection of data like usual systems, well-defined key expressions are used as sampling queries. This work is a part of an on-going R&D project and now in process of manual annotation that would be evaluated via final system quality.

Real-Time Vision Based Camera Moving and Displacement Detection Algorithm

In recent years, image processing has been used usefully in many fields such as traffic information systems, illegal intrusion detection system. Now image processing techniques are required in position of moving observers rather than fixed observers because it helps the control of the camera-equipped device. In order to achieve the goal, the algorithm should derive the desired results quickly and accurately. So this paper considers two characteristics; Functional performance and temporal performance. The former is about how well the desired results can be derived, and the latter is about how fast the result can be calculated. This paper suggests real-time image algorithm based on optical flow. The algorithm determines the horizontal or vertical movement, etc. and extracts the displacement. And the results will be presented in the functional performance and temporal performance. The proposed algorithm can be used to control the UAV (quad-rotor) in situation of Flows in parallel by the inertia or external forces by wind. The proposed algorithm is efficient for achieving “Drift stabilization” or Detect movement quickly.

XOnto-Apriori: An Effective Association Rule Mining Algorithm for Personalized Recommendation Systems

This paper proposes an extended association rule mining algorithm to improve the accuracy of the Onto-Apriori algorithm which is one of the association rule mining algorithm. The Onto-Apriori algorithm considered the usage of ontology in the association rule mining algorithms. However it does not reflect relationships between items which might have similarity between them. Therefore generated rules from the algorithm are not sufficient to find association between items. To solve the problem, we propose an algorithm, XOnto-Apriori, that can generates association rules and can suggest more valuable candidate item sets applying ontology reasoning function. Experimental results show our proposed approach. The XOnto-Apriori algorithm shows more effective results.

MapReduce-Based Bulk-Loading Algorithm for Fast Search for Billions of Triples

Due to the development of IT and scientific technology, huge amounts of data are continuously being created and the big data era can be said to have arrived. Therefore, triple store inserting and inquiring into knowledge bases has to be scaled up in order to deal with such large sources of data. To this end, we propose a triple store system based on a distributed database that uses bulk-loading for billions of triples to store data and to respond to user queries quickly. In order to achieve this purpose, we introduce a bulk-loading algorithm using the MapReduce framework and the SPARQL query processing engine to connect to a large distributed database. Experimental results show that the proposed bulk-loading algorithm can use 101K triples per second to load approximately 33 billion triples. This implies that we will be able to deal with billions of triples.

Inspecting Retrieval Engines Based on Term’s Weight

We introduce a revised way of inspecting retrieval engines based on the term’s weight which we call it as discrimination power of a term. The aim of this methodology is to make engine developers find the indexing or query processing components that are problematic in ranking retrieved documents. The internal processes of indexing and query processing are modeled in a Bayesian inference network. The nodes in this model can be terms, phrases, sentences, documents, etc. The layers represent internal step-by-step processing components like stemming, tokenizing, POS Tagging, parsing, etc. By computing and showing the extent to which each node plays a role in causing a relevant (or irrelevant) document to be ranked high (or low), the proposed method can signal the nodes to be examined and hence the components to be modified. We insist that the proposed method can be used for automatic failure analysis of a system with test runs and that its effectiveness can be improved even automatically.

An Enhanced Signal-Driven PMIPv6 for Distributed Mobility Control

The existing IP mobility management protocols such as mobile IPv6 (MIPv6) and proxy mobile IPv6 (PMIPv6) are based on a centralized mobility entity, which processes all control and data traffic together. However, these centralized mobility management protocols have some limitations such as traffic concentration into the core network and serious service degradation by a single point of failure, etc. Therefore, in this paper, in order to overcome these limitations, we propose an enhanced signal-driven PMIPv6 for distributed mobility control. Numerical results indicate that the proposed scheme has apparent potentials to alleviate serious limitations of a related distributed mobility management protocol (i.e., signal-driven PMIPv6 (S-PMIP)) as well as PMIPv6, while reducing the total mobility management cost.

A Congestion Degree Index Based Bandwidth Estimation Method Using Pair Packet Delay

In the end to end data transfer protocols, it is a big issue to maximize the transmission rate in order to occupy available bandwidth without packet loss. UDT(UDP based Data Transfer) estimates the available bandwidth based on the pair packet algorithm on the receiver side, and controls the next sending rate with considering the estimated value. However, for a congested network, the estimated value has a tendency to be much greater than the actual bandwidth, and fluctuated in time, so it results in in high loss probability. In this paper, we propose a congestion degree index based bandwidth estimation method using pair packet delay. Experimental results show that the proposed method reliably occupies the available bandwidth with stable bandwidth estimation. The packet loss probability is greatly reduced compared with that of UDT.

Strong Identification and Authentication Using Dynamic Biometric Signature

This paper discusses the possibility of usage of dynamic biometric signatures (DBS) as an alternative of “advanced” electronic signatures. The authors refer to the issues of uniqueness of DBS in terms of individual’s characteristic motion, and hence the validity of parameters required for methods of identification of users and their authentication in the “electronic” world. Furthermore the authors focused on the issue of the use of DBS in connection with legal acts of people and the integration of authentication tools, based on DBS in the legal systems of the EU countries. The conclusions set out in the paper are supported by the results of experiments, when panelists created their biometric samples under different conditions that may have a significant impact, especially for set-up setting of FNMR parameter (False Non-Match Rate).

An Implementation of Automatic Software Testing on Cloud Computing Environment

While developing high quality software, it is relatively important to perform reliable software testing. However, it may also raise the development cost, manpower and time-consuming. Limitations of different resources such as testing software and computers may also be postponed the development cycle. Cloud computing shares different resources over a network seems an alternative solution to software testing. But how to evaluate and assign these powerful resources to specific testing programs are still needed further investigation. Therefore, this study proposed an automatic software testing service with the benefits of real-time software testing and automatically computation scaling. It can perform software testing in parallel, and can automatically pare the source code to perform statistics analysis, generate test drivers and cases, and profile the consumed resources. Experiments were carried out to help users figure out the bottleneck of existed testing program and cloud systems.

Exchangeable Humanoid Animation Using H-Anim and Motion Capture Data

We describe a method for generating H-Anim character animation using general graphics tools and motion capture data. An H-Anim character model can be designed with a general graphics tool using a procedure that defines the skeletal hierarchy of a human character. The character model is then provided with motion capture data. H Anim character animation is generated and displayed using a general X3D browser. The H-Anim character animation is obtained by converting captured motion data into X3D interpolator nodes. We have defined a conversion algorithm that provides H-Anim characters with motion by applying any motion capture data to the H-Anim character model. As well as an H Anim viewer, we have developed an H-Anim editor that is used to display and edit the hierarchy of an H-Anim character model and also generate its animation interactively using motion capture data.

The audio clips under test in this paper include isolated segments from different sound tracks and all segments entirely from a sound track. In the literature, these two cases are usually individually investigated. However, we have a unified treatment to both types of segments using the same features and classifiers. In the experiments, we design five experiments to fully examine the performance limitation of the approaches studied in this paper.

A Feature Selection Technique for Hand Gesture Recognition in Music Display System

In the paper, we have developed a music display system in which a music performer can easily turn the page of music by using simple hand gestures. A three-dimensional data representation called motion history volume has been adopted for the feature extraction module of the hand gesture recognition system. In order to reduce the computation of the learning process and to improve the effectiveness of the learning, we propose a feature selection technique based on a modified fuzzy min-max neural network. We have defined a relevance factor which can measure the relevance of a feature to classify the specific pattern classes. The feature selection method can remove ineffective features and erroneous features in the learning data set by using the relevance factor data. Through the experiments using 120 test data for 6 pattern classes, the effectiveness of the proposed method is discussed.

An Approach for Applying Social Networks Information to Information Recommendation

Due to the rapid development of the Internet and need for recommendation systems, there have been several recommendation systems using the various information on the Internet and more and more systems are using the SNS information. However, most of them only consider the simple direct friend relationships. In this paper we use the intimacy and similarity between users on the SNS to compute the weight of an evaluating person for recommendation purpose. The intimacy between users considers the direct and distant friend relationships on an SNS which contains direction and importance information among friends. The similarity between users is computed by using the mutual friends as well as the relationship between the user’s preference and the given item. In order to enhance the objectivity among user’s evaluations, the evaluation was performed on several item attributes. We have used real SNS data to carry out experiments and show how well the intimacy and similarity can predict the target user’s evaluation ratings.

Preference Measurement Using User Response Electroencephalogram

This paper presents preference measurement of user using user response electroencephalogram (EEG). Today users are faced with overflowing image data and images are sorted with time, location, and event. In this paper we introduce a noble way to pick out the preferred image using user response EEG wave. The EEG wave data are gathered through experiment using consumer grade EEG device sensors. Images were classified into preferred image and unnoticed images. The accuracy of image classification using gathered EEG wave was 88.54%. Also we found significant difference of alpha waves on position F8 and T8 between EEG wave recorded during preferred images and not preferred images. Using this analysis, we are able to service preference based personalized service.

Development of ISMEE: An Information Security Management Engineering Environment

An Information Security Management System (ISMS) has become more important for any organization to manage its information assets securely. However, it is not easy for the organization to establish own ISMS, and for employees to work according to the ISMS. Therefore, ISMEE, an Information Security Management Engineering Environment, was proposed as the first engineering environment for supporting organizations with ISMSs. ISMEE integrates various tools to support all participants in an organization to perform all tasks in from preparation to abolishment of an ISMS based on ISO/IEC 27000 series, which are the international standards for ISMSs. This paper presents our implementation of ISMEE. At first, the paper investigates technical issues to realize ISMEE. Then, the paper shows how the issues are addressed and presents our current implementation of ISMEE.

Predicting New Attacks for Information Security

Our knowledge base of attacks is always not enough for developing and maintaining information systems. An information system, which is developed and maintained according to an insufficient knowledge base of attacks, has no capability of defending against new attacks from the complicated environment. To mitigate this circumstance, we should continuously predict new attacks and add them into the knowledge base of attacks such that by enriching the knowledge base of attacks, information systems can be developed and maintained more countermeasures to confront those new attacks. However, there is no methodology proposed for predicting new attacks. This paper presents an analysis and discussion for predicting new attacks and shows the challenges issues in predicting new attacks. The paper also proposes a reasoning method for predicting new threats.

A Supporting Environment for IT System Security Evaluation Based on ISO/IEC 15408 and ISO/IEC 18045

ISO/IEC 15408 and ISO/IEC 18045 are a pair of international standards for security evaluation and certification of IT systems. However, security evaluation based on this pair of standards is not an easy work. There are many activities and documents in the whole evaluation process. Complicated tasks in evaluation process may cause people making mistakes in intermediate products and evaluation results. It is also difficult to ensure that evaluation is fair and transparent, although each evaluator tries to evaluate a target system earnestly, evaluation results may be different because of evaluators’ biases. Moreover, to manage a lot of intermediate products in evaluation process is not easy task even for experienced evaluators. This paper presents a supporting environment for IT system security evaluation based on ISO/IEC 15408 and ISO/IEC 18045 which can support all tasks related to security evaluation by guiding and helping evaluators to perform these tasks regularly, and also can support the management of all documents and intermediate products in the whole evaluation process.

Cryptanalysis of Advanced Biometric-Based User Authentication Scheme for Wireless Sensor Networks

Recently, wireless sensor networks can provide a practicable real-time monitoring system because wireless sensors can be easily deployed in various environments. To provide secure and efficient communication, various user authentication schemes have been proposed. In 2012, He et al. proposed a robust biometric-based user authentication scheme but Yoon and Kim demonstrated that He et al.’s scheme has various security problems. And they proposed an advanced biometric-based user authentication scheme. In this paper, we analyze Yoon and Kim’s scheme and perform the cryptanalysis. We find out that it has still various security weakness such as no perfect forward secrecy, session key exposure by GW node, a DoS attack, no revocation phase, and biometric recognition error.

A MapReduce-Based Algorithm for Nearest Neighbor Search with Keywords

Today, many location-based applications call for both spatial and non-spatial predicates (e.g., keywords). For example, a traveler asks for nearby restaurants (i.e., spatial predicates) with “night view, beach and Korean food” (i.e., non-spatial predicates). In this paper, we focus on the problem of finding nearest neighbors that match user-specified non-spatial keywords. We utilize the IR-tree due to its efficiency for processing such queries, and propose a new search algorithm on the IR-tree. The proposed algorithm uses the MapReduce framework for parallel processing because traditional single machine-based query processing methods might suffer from drastic performance degradation when the size of the dataset becomes extremely large. Our experiments demonstrate the efficiency of the proposed algorithm.

A Method for Distinguishing between Shopper’s Intentions: Whether Their Purchase Is “Planned Buying” or “Impulse Buying” Utilizing the Shopper’s Behavior Process Model

The accomplishments of our study are summarized as follows: the “planned buying” and “impulse buying” process extended models are combined quantitatively after the field research of several different shoppers’ behavior, transformed to be applicable to automatic computer processes, substantiated in our field experiments, and their significance is confirmed in actual shops. Our analysis method focuses on the characteristic of the shoppers’ human motions and specifically human bio-information to indicate the shoppers’ intentions to purchase. The characteristic feature quantity in this work should be effective to distinguish between these two purchasing models. This method should prove helpful to shop owners’ management in order to increase sales efficiency, service quality, merchandising, displays and to produce improved service innovation.

A New Antenna Selection Algorithm for Indoor Distributed Antenna Systems Environment

With the development of multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) techniques, distributed antenna systems gain more attention because of better signal coverage than centralized antenna systems. However, hardware costs and computational complexity appear to be a big problem with the growth in the number of antennas in distributed antenna systems as well. Research on antenna selection performance is conducted on indoor distributed antenna systems environment in order to solve the above problem. An antenna selection algorithm based on eigenvalues is proposed. Simulation results show that the algorithm cannot only achieve good antenna selection performance, but also has a much reduced computational cost.

Improved Mean Representation Based Classification for Face Recognition

In this paper, two new classifiers based on class mean (CM) and mean representation based classification (MRC), called improved class mean (ICM) and improved mean representation based classification (IMRC), are proposed for face recognition. ICM classifier uses the novel method to gain new mean vector of each class subspace for classification. IMRC classifier utilizes the novel class mean vector and decision rule for classification. A large number of experiments on AR face database and YaleB face database are used to assess the novel classifier. The experimental results show that the proposed classifier gains better recognition rate than MRC classifier, LRC classifier, CM classifier and nearest feature centre (NFC) classifier.
