    Hosam Alhakami*

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.78, No.1, pp. 329-356, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2023.043439

    Abstract The rapid growth of the Internet of Things (IoT) operations has necessitated the incorporation of quantum computing technologies to meet its expanding needs. This integration is motivated by the need to solve the specific issues provided by the expansion of IoT and the potential benefits that quantum computing can offer in this scenario. The combination of IoT and quantum computing creates new privacy and security problems. This study examines the critical need to prevent potential security concerns from quantum computing in IoT applications. We investigate the incorporation of quantum computing approaches within IoT security frameworks, with a focus on developing… More >

    Serial Multiple Mediation of the Relationship between Positive Coping Style and Post-Traumatic Growth among Chinese College Students in the Aftermath of COVID-19

    Qi Li, Jinsheng Hu*, Peng Wan

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.25, No.11, pp. 1173-1186, 2023, DOI:10.32604/ijmhp.2023.030343


    Given the ongoing character of COVID-19, higher-education students encountered multifaceted pressures brought about by the pandemic and had to overcome many difficulties during this period. Accordingly, it is imperative to identify the factors that may have protective effects on the social functioning and mental status of college students in the aftermath of COVID-19. This cross-sectional study sought to ascertain the internal mechanism of positive coping (PC) styles affecting post-traumatic growth (PTG) and considered the mediating roles of cognitive reappraisal (CR), psychological resilience (PR), and deliberate rumination (DR), which are essential for understanding how and to what extent these factors shaped… More >

    Threshold-Based Software-Defined Networking (SDN) Solution for Healthcare Systems against Intrusion Attacks

    Laila M. Halman, Mohammed J. F. Alenazi*

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.138, No.2, pp. 1469-1483, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2023.028077

    Abstract The healthcare sector holds valuable and sensitive data. The amount of this data and the need to handle, exchange, and protect it, has been increasing at a fast pace. Due to their nature, software-defined networks (SDNs) are widely used in healthcare systems, as they ensure effective resource utilization, safety, great network management, and monitoring. In this sector, due to the value of the data, SDNs face a major challenge posed by a wide range of attacks, such as distributed denial of service (DDoS) and probe attacks. These attacks reduce network performance, causing the degradation of different key performance indicators (KPIs)… More > Graphic Abstract

    Abdulaziz Attaallah1, Khalil al-Sulbi2, Areej Alasiry3, Mehrez Marzougui3, Mohd Waris Khan4,*, Mohd Faizan4, Alka Agrawal5, Dhirendra Pandey5

    Computer Systems Science and Engineering, Vol.47, No.3, pp. 3165-3195, 2023, DOI:10.32604/csse.2023.040259

    Abstract Security testing is a critical concern for organizations worldwide due to the potential financial setbacks and damage to reputation caused by insecure software systems. One of the challenges in software security testing is test case prioritization, which aims to reduce redundancy in fault occurrences when executing test suites. By effectively applying test case prioritization, both the time and cost required for developing secure software can be reduced. This paper proposes a test case prioritization technique based on the Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) algorithm, a metaheuristic approach. The performance of the ACO-based technique is evaluated using the Average Percentage of Fault… More >

    Relationship between Interaction Anxiousness, Academic Resilience, Cultural Intelligence and Ego-Identity among Chinese Vocational Pathway University Students: A Conditional Process Analysis Model

    Wenxin Chen1,#, Jie Wu1,2,#, Long Li3,*, Shiyong Wu4,*

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.25, No.8, pp. 949-959, 2023, DOI:10.32604/ijmhp.2023.030072

    Abstract Background: University students’ ego-identity, an essential component of their psychological development and mental health, has widely attracted the attention of policymakers, schools, and parents. Method: A total of 298 Chinese vocational pathway undergraduates were recruited, and a conditional process analysis model was adopted to explore the interaction mechanism of ego-identity. Results: The results suggest that the ego-identity of Chinese vocational pathway undergraduates is significantly affected by interaction anxiousness, academic resilience, and cultural intelligence. (1) Interaction anxiousness significantly and positively predicts ego-identity. (2) Academic resilience positively and partially mediates the effect of interaction anxiousness on ego-identity. (3) Cultural intelligence significantly and… More >

    Impact Analysis of Resilience Against Malicious Code Attacks via Emails

    Chulwon Lee1, Kyungho Lee2,*

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.72, No.3, pp. 4803-4816, 2022, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2022.025310

    Abstract The damage caused by malicious software is increasing owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, such as ransomware attacks on information technology and operational technology systems based on corporate networks and social infrastructures and spear-phishing attacks on business or research institutes. Recently, several studies have been conducted to prevent further phishing emails in the workplace because malware attacks employ emails as the primary means of penetration. However, according to the latest research, there appears to be a limitation in blocking email spoofing through advanced blocking systems such as spam email filtering solutions and advanced persistent threat systems. Therefore, experts believe that it… More >
