The Signal Control Optimization of Road Intersections with Slow Traffic Based on Improved PSO

The slow traffic in cities with pedestrians and bicycles is becoming more and more important due to their environmental protection and low carbon. However, the driving at the road intersections is seriously mixed and easy to jam. Traffic delays …


An Autonomous Host-Based Intrusion Detection System for Android Mobile Devices

Intrusion Detection System (IDS) is crucial to protect smartphones from imminent security breaches and ensure user privacy. Android is the most popular mobile Operating System (OS), holding above 85% market share. The traffic generated by …


LT Codes and the Minimum Spanning Tree Based Distributed Storage in Wireless Sensor Networks

In wireless sensor networks, sensor nodes are vulnerable due to the challenging environment and limited energy. Once a sensor node fails, the stored sensed data will be lost. In this paper, we develop a distributed algorithm for solving this …


Analytical and Experimental Performance Evaluation of Antenna Misalignment in Ka-band Wireless Links

In this paper, we propose a model for the effect of misalignment of antennas due to mechanical vibrations and experimentally validate its accuracy in a Ka-band (26-40 GHz) transmission link. Our approach provides a valuable tool that is …


Cryptanalysis of Merkle-Hellman Cipher Using Parallel Genetic Algorithm

In 1976, Whitfield Diffie and Martin Hellman introduced the public key cryptography or asymmetric cryptography standards. Two years later, an asymmetric cryptosystem was published by Ralph Merkle and Martin Hellman called ℳ ℋ $ \mathcal {M} …

About this journal

The journal Mobile Networks and Applications reflects the emerging symbiosis of portable computers and wireless networks, addressing the convergence of mobility, computing and information organization, access and management. In its special issues, the journal places an equal emphasis on various areas of nomadic computing, data management, related software and hardware technologies, and mobile user services, alongside more ‘classical’ topics in wireless and mobile networking. The journal documents practical and theoretical results which make a fundamental contribution.
