    Task-Based Resource Allocation Bid in Edge Computing Micro Datacenter

    Yeting Guo1, Fang Liu2,*, Nong Xiao1, Zhengguo Chen1,3

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.61, No.2, pp. 777-792, 2019, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2019.06366

    Abstract Edge computing attracts online service providers (SP) to offload services to edge computing micro datacenters that are close to end users. Such offloads reduce packet-loss rates, delays and delay jitter when responding to service requests. Simultaneously, edge computing resource providers (RP) are concerned with maximizing incomes by allocating limited resources to SPs. Most works on this topic make a simplified assumption that each SP has a fixed demand; however, in reality, SPs themselves may have multiple task-offloading alternatives. Thus, their demands could be flexibly changed, which could support finer-grained allocations and further improve the incomes for RPs. Here, we propose… More >

    Chaoyang Li1,2,3, Gang Xu2, Yuling Chen1,*, Haseeb Ahmad4, Jian Li3

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.61, No.2, pp. 711-726, 2019, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2019.06279

    Abstract Blockchain technology has become a research hotspot in recent years with the prominent characteristics as public, distributed and decentration. And blockchain-enabled internet of things (BIoT) has a tendency to make a revolutionary change for the internet of things (IoT) which requires distributed trustless consensus. However, the scalability and security issues become particularly important with the dramatically increasing number of IoT devices. Especially, with the development of quantum computing, many extant cryptographic algorithms applied in blockchain or BIoT systems are vulnerable to the quantum attacks. In this paper, an anti-quantum proxy blind signature scheme based on the lattice cryptography has been… More >

    Yugai Huang1,2,3, Yu Shang1,4, Wenqing Li1, Jiajing He1, Hairong Zhou1, Bin Gu1,*

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.61, No.2, pp. 701-710, 2019, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2019.03109

    Abstract The configurations of molecular clusters have significant impacts on their growth into fine particles in atmosphere. In this paper, we explore the topology space of the structure of H2SO4·NH3 dimer with a novel sampling technique of meta-dynamics (MTD) method and ab initio molecular dynamics simulations. The simulations are carried out at the temperatures of both 50 K and 242 K, which represent the typical high and low latitudes of troposphere. The results show that, compared with only traditional MD simulations, the structure samplings are significantly accelerated with MTD method. Therefore, more isomers of the dimer are discovered within the same… More >

    Cryptanalysis and Improvement of a Chaotic Map-Control-Based and the Plain Image-Related Cryptosystem

    Bin Lu1, Fenlin Liu1, Xin Ge1,*, Zhenyu Li2

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.61, No.2, pp. 687-699, 2019, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2019.05633

    Abstract Due to the characteristics of chaotic systems, different cryptosystems based on chaos have been proposed to satisfy the security of multimedia data. A plain image-related chaotic algorithm is proposed by Luo et al. with high speed and efficiency. Security weaknesses of the cryptosystem are studied in this paper. It is found that the important secret key information is leaked because an important parameter can be obtained after an inverse operation in the last step of the cryptosystems without secret key. Meanwhile, the value zero is processed improperly in quantification algorithm. Based on the weaknesses, chosen plaintext attack on the cryptosystem… More >

    Abstract The risk assessment system has been applied to the information security, energy, medical and other industries. Through the risk assessment system, it is possible to quantify the possibility of the impact or loss caused by an event before or after an event, thereby avoiding the risk or reducing the loss. However, the existing risk assessment system architecture is mostly a centralized architecture, which could lead to problems such as data leakage, tampering, and central cheating. Combined with the technology of block chain, which has the characteristics of decentralization, security and credibility, collective maintenance, and untamperability. This paper proposes a new… More >

    Chen Zhang1, Jieren Cheng1,2,3,*, Xiangyan Tang1, Victor S. Sheng4, Zhe Dong1, Junqi Li1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.61, No.2, pp. 657-675, 2019, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2019.06207

    Abstract Distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks launch more and more frequently and are more destructive. Feature representation as an important part of DDoS defense technology directly affects the efficiency of defense. Most DDoS feature extraction methods cannot fully utilize the information of the original data, resulting in the extracted features losing useful features. In this paper, a DDoS feature representation method based on deep belief network (DBN) is proposed. We quantify the original data by the size of the network flows, the distribution of IP addresses and ports, and the diversity of packet sizes of different protocols and train the… More >

    An Efficient Quantum Key Distribution Protocol with Dense Coding on Single Photons

    Hao Xiao1,*, Jun Zhang2, Wenhua Huang3, Mi Zhou4, Wencheng Hu5

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.61, No.2, pp. 759-775, 2019, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2019.06085

    Abstract Combined with the dense coding mechanism and the bias-BB84 protocol, an efficient quantum key distribution protocol with dense coding on single photons (QDKD-SP) is proposed. Compared with the BB84 or bias-BB84 protocols based on single photons, our QDKD-SP protocol has a higher capacity without increasing the difficulty of its experiment implementation as each correlated photon can carry two bits of useful information. Compared with the quantum dense key distribution (QDKD) protocol based on entangled states, our protocol is more feasible as the preparation and the measurement of a single-photon quantum state is not difficult with current technology. In addition, our… More >

    Yong Ding1, Lei Tian1, Bo Han2, Huiyong Wang2,*, Yujue Wang1, James Xi Zheng3

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.61, No.2, pp. 727-738, 2019, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2019.06220

    Abstract Currently, many biometric systems maintain the user’s biometrics and templates in plaintext format, which brings great privacy risk to uses’ biometric information. Biometrics are unique and almost unchangeable, which means it is a great concern for users on whether their biometric information would be leaked. To address this issue, this paper proposes a confidential comparison algorithm for iris feature vectors with masks, and develops a privacy-preserving iris verification scheme based on the El Gamal encryption scheme. In our scheme, the multiplicative homomorphism of encrypted features is used to compare of iris features and their mask information. Also, this paper improves… More >
