    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 >

    Fortifying Healthcare Data Security in the Cloud: A Comprehensive Examination of the EPM-KEA Encryption Protocol

    Umi Salma Basha1, Shashi Kant Gupta2, Wedad Alawad3, SeongKi Kim4,*, Salil Bharany5,*

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.79, No.2, pp. 3397-3416, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2024.046265

    Abstract A new era of data access and management has begun with the use of cloud computing in the healthcare industry. Despite the efficiency and scalability that the cloud provides, the security of private patient data is still a major concern. Encryption, network security, and adherence to data protection laws are key to ensuring the confidentiality and integrity of healthcare data in the cloud. The computational overhead of encryption technologies could lead to delays in data access and processing rates. To address these challenges, we introduced the Enhanced Parallel Multi-Key Encryption Algorithm (EPM-KEA), aiming to bolster… More >

    Big Data Access Control Mechanism Based on Two-Layer Permission Decision Structure

    Aodi Liu, Na Wang*, Xuehui Du, Dibin Shan, Xiangyu Wu, Wenjuan Wang

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.79, No.1, pp. 1705-1726, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2024.049011

    Abstract Big data resources are characterized by large scale, wide sources, and strong dynamics. Existing access control mechanisms based on manual policy formulation by security experts suffer from drawbacks such as low policy management efficiency and difficulty in accurately describing the access control policy. To overcome these problems, this paper proposes a big data access control mechanism based on a two-layer permission decision structure. This mechanism extends the attribute-based access control (ABAC) model. Business attributes are introduced in the ABAC model as business constraints between entities. The proposed mechanism implements a two-layer permission decision structure composed… More >

    A Cover-Independent Deep Image Hiding Method Based on Domain Attention Mechanism

    Nannan Wu1, Xianyi Chen1,*, James Msughter Adeke2, Junjie Zhao2

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.78, No.3, pp. 3001-3019, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2023.045311

    Abstract Recently, deep image-hiding techniques have attracted considerable attention in covert communication and high-capacity information hiding. However, these approaches have some limitations. For example, a cover image lacks self-adaptability, information leakage, or weak concealment. To address these issues, this study proposes a universal and adaptable image-hiding method. First, a domain attention mechanism is designed by combining the Atrous convolution, which makes better use of the relationship between the secret image domain and the cover image domain. Second, to improve perceived human similarity, perceptual loss is incorporated into the training process. The experimental results are promising, with More >

    An Innovative Approach Using TKN-Cryptology for Identifying the Replay Assault

    Syeda Wajiha Zahra1, Muhammad Nadeem2, Ali Arshad3,*, Saman Riaz3, Muhammad Abu Bakr4, Ashit Kumar Dutta5, Zaid Alzaid6, Badr Almutairi7, Sultan Almotairi8

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.78, No.1, pp. 589-616, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2023.042386

    Abstract Various organizations store data online rather than on physical servers. As the number of user’s data stored in cloud servers increases, the attack rate to access data from cloud servers also increases. Different researchers worked on different algorithms to protect cloud data from replay attacks. None of the papers used a technique that simultaneously detects a full-message and partial-message replay attack. This study presents the development of a TKN (Text, Key and Name) cryptographic algorithm aimed at protecting data from replay attacks. The program employs distinct ways to encrypt plain text [P], a user-defined Key… More >

    Efficient DP-FL: Efficient Differential Privacy Federated Learning Based on Early Stopping Mechanism

    Sanxiu Jiao1, Lecai Cai2,*, Jintao Meng3, Yue Zhao3, Kui Cheng2

    Computer Systems Science and Engineering, Vol.48, No.1, pp. 247-265, 2024, DOI:10.32604/csse.2023.040194

    Abstract Federated learning is a distributed machine learning framework that solves data security and data island problems faced by artificial intelligence. However, federated learning frameworks are not always secure, and attackers can attack customer privacy information by analyzing parameters in the training process of federated learning models. To solve the problems of data security and availability during federated learning training, this paper proposes an Efficient Differential Privacy Federated Learning Algorithm based on early stopping mechanism (Efficient DP-FL). This method inherits the advantages of differential privacy and federated learning and improves the performance of model training while More >

    Enhancing Healthcare Data Security and Disease Detection Using Crossover-Based Multilayer Perceptron in Smart Healthcare Systems

    Mustufa Haider Abidi*, Hisham Alkhalefah, Mohamed K. Aboudaif

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.139, No.1, pp. 977-997, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2023.044169

    Abstract The healthcare data requires accurate disease detection analysis, real-time monitoring, and advancements to ensure proper treatment for patients. Consequently, Machine Learning methods are widely utilized in Smart Healthcare Systems (SHS) to extract valuable features from heterogeneous and high-dimensional healthcare data for predicting various diseases and monitoring patient activities. These methods are employed across different domains that are susceptible to adversarial attacks, necessitating careful consideration. Hence, this paper proposes a crossover-based Multilayer Perceptron (CMLP) model. The collected samples are pre-processed and fed into the crossover-based multilayer perceptron neural network to detect adversarial attacks on the medical… More >

    Lejun Zhang1,2,3,*, Junjie Zhang1, Kentaroh Toyoda4, Yuan Liu2, Jing Qiu2, Zhihong Tian2, Ran Guo5

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.139, No.1, pp. 783-800, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2023.043469

    Abstract Bitcoin is widely used as the most classic electronic currency for various electronic services such as exchanges, gambling, marketplaces, and also scams such as high-yield investment projects. Identifying the services operated by a Bitcoin address can help determine the risk level of that address and build an alert model accordingly. Feature engineering can also be used to flesh out labeled addresses and to analyze the current state of Bitcoin in a small way. In this paper, we address the problem of identifying multiple classes of Bitcoin services, and for the poor classification of individual addresses… More >

    DL-Powered Anomaly Identification System for Enhanced IoT Data Security

    Manjur Kolhar*, Sultan Mesfer Aldossary

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.77, No.3, pp. 2857-2879, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2023.042726

    Abstract In many commercial and public sectors, the Internet of Things (IoT) is deeply embedded. Cyber security threats aimed at compromising the security, reliability, or accessibility of data are a serious concern for the IoT. Due to the collection of data from several IoT devices, the IoT presents unique challenges for detecting anomalous behavior. It is the responsibility of an Intrusion Detection System (IDS) to ensure the security of a network by reporting any suspicious activity. By identifying failed and successful attacks, IDS provides a more comprehensive security capability. A reliable and efficient anomaly detection system… More >
