    Waseem Akram1, Khalid Mahmood2, Hafiz Burhan ul Haq3, Muhammad Asif3, Shehzad Ashraf Chaudhry4,5, Taeshik Shon6,*

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.80, No.1, pp. 263-280, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2024.052405

    Abstract Cookies are considered a fundamental means of web application services for authenticating various Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) requests and maintains the states of clients’ information over the Internet. HTTP cookies are exploited to carry client patterns observed by a website. These client patterns facilitate the particular client’s future visit to the corresponding website. However, security and privacy are the primary concerns owing to the value of information over public channels and the storage of client information on the browser. Several protocols have been introduced that maintain HTTP cookies, but many of those fail to achieve More >

    EG-STC: An Efficient Secure Two-Party Computation Scheme Based on Embedded GPU for Artificial Intelligence Systems

    Zhenjiang Dong1, Xin Ge1, Yuehua Huang1, Jiankuo Dong1, Jiang Xu2,*

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.79, No.3, pp. 4021-4044, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2024.049233

    Abstract This paper presents a comprehensive exploration into the integration of Internet of Things (IoT), big data analysis, cloud computing, and Artificial Intelligence (AI), which has led to an unprecedented era of connectivity. We delve into the emerging trend of machine learning on embedded devices, enabling tasks in resource-limited environments. However, the widespread adoption of machine learning raises significant privacy concerns, necessitating the development of privacy-preserving techniques. One such technique, secure multi-party computation (MPC), allows collaborative computations without exposing private inputs. Despite its potential, complex protocols and communication interactions hinder performance, especially on resource-constrained devices. Efforts… More >

    Enabling Efficient Data Transmission in Wireless Sensor Networks-Based IoT Applications

    Ibraheem Al-Hejri1, Farag Azzedin1,*, Sultan Almuhammadi1, Naeem Firdous Syed2

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.79, No.3, pp. 4197-4218, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2024.047117

    Abstract The use of the Internet of Things (IoT) is expanding at an unprecedented scale in many critical applications due to the ability to interconnect and utilize a plethora of wide range of devices. In critical infrastructure domains like oil and gas supply, intelligent transportation, power grids, and autonomous agriculture, it is essential to guarantee the confidentiality, integrity, and authenticity of data collected and exchanged. However, the limited resources coupled with the heterogeneity of IoT devices make it inefficient or sometimes infeasible to achieve secure data transmission using traditional cryptographic techniques. Consequently, designing a lightweight secure More >

    Novel Static Security and Stability Control of Power Systems Based on Artificial Emotional Lazy Q-Learning

    Tao Bao*, Xiyuan Ma, Zhuohuan Li, Duotong Yang, Pengyu Wang, Changcheng Zhou

    Energy Engineering, Vol.121, No.6, pp. 1713-1737, 2024, DOI:10.32604/ee.2023.046150

    Abstract The stability problem of power grids has become increasingly serious in recent years as the size of novel power systems increases. In order to improve and ensure the stable operation of the novel power system, this study proposes an artificial emotional lazy Q-learning method, which combines artificial emotion, lazy learning, and reinforcement learning for static security and stability analysis of power systems. Moreover, this study compares the analysis results of the proposed method with those of the small disturbance method for a stand-alone power system and verifies that the proposed lazy Q-learning method is able More >

    Towards Blockchain-Based Secure BGP Routing, Challenges and Future Research Directions

    Qiong Yang1, Li Ma1,2,*, Shanshan Tu1, Sami Ullah3, Muhammad Waqas4,5, Hisham Alasmary6

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.79, No.2, pp. 2035-2062, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2024.049970

    Abstract Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) is a standard inter-domain routing protocol for the Internet that conveys network layer reachability information and establishes routes to different destinations. The BGP protocol exhibits security design defects, such as an unconditional trust mechanism and the default acceptance of BGP route announcements from peers by BGP neighboring nodes, easily triggering prefix hijacking, path forgery, route leakage, and other BGP security threats. Meanwhile, the traditional BGP security mechanism, relying on a public key infrastructure, faces issues like a single point of failure and a single point of trust. The decentralization, anti-tampering, and More >

    Trusted Certified Auditor Using Cryptography for Secure Data Outsourcing and Privacy Preservation in Fog-Enabled VANETs

    Nagaraju Pacharla, K. Srinivasa Reddy*

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.79, No.2, pp. 3089-3110, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2024.048133

    Abstract With the recent technological developments, massive vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs) have been established, enabling numerous vehicles and their respective Road Side Unit (RSU) components to communicate with one another. The best way to enhance traffic flow for vehicles and traffic management departments is to share the data they receive. There needs to be more protection for the VANET systems. An effective and safe method of outsourcing is suggested, which reduces computation costs by achieving data security using a homomorphic mapping based on the conjugate operation of matrices. This research proposes a VANET-based data outsourcing… More >
