    Abstract There are a variety of Internet of Things (IoT) applications that cover different aspects of daily life. Each of these applications has different criteria and sub-criteria, making it difficult for the user to choose. This requires an automated approach to select IoT applications by considering criteria. This paper presents a novel recommendation system for presenting applications on the IoT. First, using the analytic hierarchy process (AHP), a multi-layer architecture of the criteria and sub-criteria in IoT applications is presented. This architecture is used to evaluate and rank IoT applications. As a result, finding the weight of the criteria and sub-criteria… More >

    (This article belongs to this Special Issue: Cloud, SDN, and NFV architectures for next generation IoT infrastructures)
    Abstract Cyberattacks are difficult to prevent because the targeted companies and organizations are often relying on new and fundamentally insecure cloud-based technologies, such as the Internet of Things. With increasing industry adoption and migration of traditional computing services to the cloud, one of the main challenges in cybersecurity is to provide mechanisms to secure these technologies. This work proposes a Data Security Framework for cloud computing services (CCS) that evaluates and improves CCS data security from a software engineering perspective by evaluating the levels of security within the cloud computing paradigm using engineering methods and techniques applied to CCS. This framework… More >

    An Error-Correcting Code-Based Robust Watermarking Scheme for Stereolithographic Files

    Zhuorong Li1, Huawei Tian2,*, Yanhui Xiao2, Yunqi Tang1, Anhong Wang3
    Computer Systems Science and Engineering, Vol.37, No.2, pp. 247-263, 2021, DOI:10.32604/csse.2021.013898
    Abstract Stereolithographic (STL) files have been extensively used in rapid prototyping industries as well as many other fields as watermarking algorithms to secure intellectual property and protect three-dimensional models from theft. However, to the best of our knowledge, few studies have looked at how watermarking can resist attacks that involve vertex-reordering. Here, we present a lossless and robust watermarking scheme for STL files to protect against vertex-reordering attacks. Specifically, we designed a novel error-correcting code (ECC) that can correct the error of any one-bit in a bitstream by inserting several check digits. In addition, ECC is designed to make use of… More >

    Computer Systems Science and Engineering, Vol.37, No.2, pp. 265-281, 2021, DOI:10.32604/csse.2021.014557
    Abstract In the existing Electronic Health Records (EHRs), the medical information of patients is completely controlled by various medical institutions. As such, patients have no dominant power over their own EHRs. These personal data are not only inconvenient to access and share, but are also prone to cause privacy disclosure. The blockchain technology provides a new development direction in the medical field. Blockchain-based EHRs are characterized by decentralization, openness and non-tampering of records, which enable patients to better manage their own EHRs. In order to better protect the privacy of patients, only designated receivers can access EHRs, and receivers can authenticate… More >

    Abstract In recent years, face detection has attracted much attention and achieved great progress due to its extensively practical applications in the field of face based computer vision. However, the tradeoff between accuracy and efficiency of the face detectors still needs to be further studied. In this paper, using Darknet-53 as backbone, we propose an improved YOLOv3-attention model by introducing attention mechanism and data augmentation to obtain the robust face detector with high accuracy and efficiency. The attention mechanism is introduced to enhance much higher discrimination of the deep features, and the trick of data augmentation is used in the training… More >
