Sharma, K., Bhadauria, S..  2020.  Detection and Prevention of Black Hole Attack in SUPERMAN. 2020 IEEE International Conference on Advanced Networks and Telecommunications Systems (ANTS). :1–6.
MANETs are wireless networks, providing properties such as self-configuration, mobility, and flexibility to the network, which make them a popular and widely used technique. As the usage and popularity of the networks increases, security becomes the most important factor to be concerned. For the sake of security, several protocols and methodologies have been developed for the networks. Along with the increase in security mechanisms, the number of attacks and attackers also increases and hence the threat to the network and secure communication within it increases as well. Some of the attacks have been resolved by the proposed methodologies but some are still a severe threat to the framework, one such attack is Black Hole Attack. The proposed work integrates the SUPERMAN (Security Using Pre-Existing Routing for Mobile Ad-hoc Networks) framework with appropriate methodology to detect and prevent the network from the Black Hole Attack. The mechanism is based on the AODV (Ad-hoc On-demand Distance Vector) routing protocol. In the methodology, the source node uses two network routes, from the source to the destination, one for sending the data packet and another for observing the intermediate nodes of the initial route. If any node is found to be a Black Hole node, then the route is dropped and the node is added to the Black Hole list and a new route to send the data packet to the destination is discovered.

The rapid development of technology makes it possible for a physical machine to be converted into a virtual machine, which can operate multiple operating systems that are running simultaneously and connected to the internet. DoS/DDoS attacks are cyber-attacks that can threaten the telecommunications sector because these attacks cause services to be disrupted and be difficult to access. There are several software tools for monitoring abnormal activities on the network, such as IDS Snort and IDS Suricata. From previous studies, IDS Suricata is superior to IDS Snort version 2 because IDS Suricata already supports multi-threading, while IDS Snort version 2 still only supports single-threading. This paper aims to conduct tests on IDS Snort version 3.0 which already supports multi-threading and IDS Suricata. This research was carried out on a virtual machine with 1 core, 2 core, and 4 core processor settings for CPU, memory, and capture packet attacks on IDS Snort version 3.0 and IDS Suricata. The attack scenario is divided into 2 parts: DoS attack scenario using 1 physical computer, and DDoS attack scenario using 5 physical computers. Based on overall testing, the results are: In general, IDS Snort version 3.0 is better than IDS Suricata. This is based on the results when using a maximum of 4 core processor, in which IDS Snort version 3.0 CPU usage is stable at 55% - 58%, a maximum memory of 3,000 MB, can detect DoS attacks with 27,034,751 packets, and DDoS attacks with 36,919,395 packets. Meanwhile, different results were obtained by IDS Suricata, in which CPU usage is better compared to IDS Snort version 3.0 with only 10% - 40% usage, and a maximum memory of 1,800 MB. However, the capabilities of detecting DoS attacks are smaller with 3,671,305 packets, and DDoS attacks with a total of 7,619,317 packets on a TCP Flood attack test.

Alshamrani, A..  2020.  Reconnaissance Attack in SDN based Environments. 2020 27th International Conference on Telecommunications (ICT). :1—5.
Software Defined Networking (SDN) is a promising network architecture that aims at providing high flexibility through the separation between network logic (control plane) and forwarding functions (data plane). This separation provides logical centralization of controllers, global network overview, ease of programmability, and a range of new SDN-compliant services. In recent years, the adoption of SDN in enterprise networks has been constantly increasing. In the meantime, new challenges arise in different levels such as scalability, management, and security. In this paper, we elaborate on complex security issues in the current SDN architecture. Especially, reconnaissance attack where attackers generate traffic for the goal of exploring existing services, assets, and overall network topology. To eliminate reconnaissance attack in SDN environment, we propose SDN-based solution by utilizing distributed firewall application, security policy, and OpenFlow counters. Distributed firewall application is capable of tracking the flow based on pre-defined states that would monitor the connection to sensitive nodes toward malicious activity. We utilize Mininet to simulate the testing environment. We are able to detect and mitigate this type of attack at early stage and in average around 7 second.

An identity-based distributed key management scheme for airborne ad hoc networks is analyzed. It is demonstrated that in the generation phase of user private key, the user identity certificate is transmitted in the public channel, so that the attacker can use the intercepted identity certificate to fake the legitimate node and cheat the distributed key generation center to generate private key for it. Then, an improved authentication scheme is proposed. It constructs the signature of timestamp using the private key of the user node as authentication proof, so that the attacker can't forge the authentication information. It is showed that the improved scheme can effectively resist the forgery attack, and further reduce the computing cost of user nodes while realizing all the functions of the original scheme.

Khatod, V., Manolova, A..  2020.  Effects of Man in the Middle (MITM) Attack on Bit Error Rate of Bluetooth System. 2020 Joint International Conference on Digital Arts, Media and Technology with ECTI Northern Section Conference on Electrical, Electronics, Computer and Telecommunications Engineering (ECTI DAMT NCON). :153—157.
The ad-hoc network formed by Bluetooth works on radio frequency links. The security aspect of Bluetooth has to be handled more carefully. The radio frequency waves have a characteristic that the waves can pierce the obstructions in the communication path, get rid of the requirement of line of sight between the communicating devices. We propose a software model of man-in-the-middle attack along with unauthorized and authorized transmitter and receiver. Advanced White Gaussian Noise channel is simulated in the designed architecture. The transmitter uses Gaussian Frequency Shift Keying (GFSK) modulation like in Bluetooth. The receiver uses GFSK demodulation. In order to validate the performance of the designed system, bit error rate (BER) measurements are taken with respect to different time intervals. We found that BER drops roughly 18% if hopping duration of 150 seconds is chosen. We propose that a Bluetooth system with hopping rate of 0.006 Hz is used instead of 10Hz.

Hou, Dai, Han, Hao, Novak, Ed.  2020.  TAES: Two-factor Authentication with End-to-End Security against VoIP Phishing. 2020 IEEE/ACM Symposium on Edge Computing (SEC). :340—345.
In the current state of communication technology, the abuse of VoIP has led to the emergence of telecommunications fraud. We urgently need an end-to-end identity authentication mechanism to verify the identity of the caller. This paper proposes an end-to-end, dual identity authentication mechanism to solve the problem of telecommunications fraud. Our first technique is to use the Hermes algorithm of data transmission technology on an unknown voice channel to transmit the certificate, thereby authenticating the caller's phone number. Our second technique uses voice-print recognition technology and a Gaussian mixture model (a general background probabilistic model) to establish a model of the speaker to verify the caller's voice to ensure the speaker's identity. Our solution is implemented on the Android platform, and simultaneously tests and evaluates transmission efficiency and speaker recognition. Experiments conducted on Android phones show that the error rate of the voice channel transmission signature certificate is within 3.247 %, and the certificate signature verification mechanism is feasible. The accuracy of the voice-print recognition is 72%, making it effective as a reference for identity authentication.

This paper investigates the problem of generating two secret keys (SKs) simultaneously over a five-terminal system with terminals labelled as 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. Each of terminal 2 and terminal 3 wishes to generate an SK with terminal 1 over a public channel wiretapped by a passive eavesdropper. Terminal 4 and terminal 5 respectively act as a trusted helper and an untrusted helper to assist the SK generation. All the terminals observe correlated source sequences from discrete memoryless sources (DMS) and can exchange information over a public channel with no rate constraint that the eavesdropper has access to. Based on the considered model, key capacity region is fully characterized and a source coding scheme that can achieve the capacity region is provided. Furthermore, expression for key leakage rate is obtained to analyze the security performance of the two generated keys.

This paper mainly investigates the physical layer security for visible light communication (VLC) based on spatial modulation (SM). The indoor VLC system includes multiple transmitters, a legitimate receiver and an eavesdropper. In the system, we consider two constraints of the input signal: non-negative and dimmable average optical intensity constraints. According to the principle of information theory and the spatial modulation scheme of uniform selection (US), the upper and the lower bounds on the secrecy rate for SM based VLC are derived, respectively. Numerical results show that the performance gap between the upper and lower bounds of the secrecy rate is small and relatively close, which indicates that the derived secrecy rate bounds can be used to evaluate the system performance. Moreover, when the number of transmitters is set to be one, the spatial modulation disappears, and the secrecy rate bounds in this paper are consistent with the existing results. To further improve the secrecy performance, a channel adaptive selection (CAS) scheme is proposed for selecting the active transmitter. Numerical result indicates that the CAS scheme has better performance than the US scheme.

In a linear code, a code symbol with (r, δ)-locality can be repaired by accessing at most r other code symbols in case of at most δ - 1 erasures. A q-ary (n, k, r, δ) locally repairable codes (LRC) in which every code symbol has (r, δ)-locality is said to be optimal if it achieves the Singleton-like bound derived by Prakash et al.. In this paper, we study the classification of optimal ternary (n, k, r, δ)-LRCs (δ \textbackslashtextgreater 2). Firstly, we propose an upper bound on the minimum distance of optimal q-ary LRCs in terms of the field size. Then, we completely determine all the 6 classes of possible parameters with which optimal ternary (n, k, r, δ)-LRCs exist. Moreover, explicit constructions of all these 6 classes of optimal ternary LRCs are proposed in the paper.

Communications play a fundamental role in the economic and social well-being of the citizens and on operations of most of the critical infrastructures (CIs). Extreme weather events, natural disasters and criminal attacks represent a challenge due to their increase in frequency and intensity requiring smarter resilience of the Communication CIs, which are extremely vulnerable due to the ever-increasing complexity of the architecture also in light of the evolution towards 5G, the extensive use of programmable platforms and exponential growth of connected devices. In this paper, we present the aim of RESISTO H2020 EU-funded project, which constitutes an innovative solution for Communication CIs holistic situation awareness and enhanced resilience.

{Unikernel is smaller in size than existing operating systems and can be started and shut down much more quickly and safely, resulting in greater flexibility and security. Since unikernel does not include large modules like the file system in its library to reduce its size, it is common to choose offloading to handle file IO. However, the processing of IO offload of unikernel transfers the file IO command to the proxy of the file server and copies the file IO result of the proxy. This can result in a trade-off of rapid processing, an advantage of unikernel. In this paper, we propose a method to offload file IO and to perform file IO with direct copy from file server to unikernel}.

The paper deals with the implementation aspects of the bilinear pairing operation over an elliptic curve on constrained devices, such as smart cards, embedded devices, smart meters and similar devices. Although cryptographic constructions, such as group signatures, anonymous credentials or identity-based encryption schemes, often rely on the pairing operation, the implementation of such schemes into practical applications is not straightforward, in fact, it may become very difficult. In this paper, we show that the implementation is difficult not only due to the high computational complexity, but also due to the lack of cryptographic libraries and programming interfaces. In particular, we show how difficult it is to implement pairing-based schemes on constrained devices and show the performance of various libraries on different platforms. Furthermore, we show the performance estimates of fundamental cryptographic constructions, the group signatures. The purpose of this paper is to reduce the gap between the cryptographic designers and developers and give performance results that can be used for the estimation of the implementability and performance of novel, upcoming schemes.

Science and Technology (PIC S T). :104-108.

Multipath propagation of radio waves negatively affects to the performance of telecommunications and radio navigation systems. When performing time and frequency synchronization tasks of spatially separated standards, the multipath signal propagation aggravates the probability of a correct synchronization and introduces an error. The presence of a multipath signal reduces the signal-to-noise ratio in the received signal, which in turn causes an increase in the synchronization error. If the time delay of the additional beam (s) is less than the useful signal duration, the reception of the useful signal is further complicated by the presence of a partially correlated interference, the level and correlation degree of which increases with decreasing time delay of the interference signals. The article considers with the method of multi-path interference compensation in a multi-position (telecommunication or radio navigation system) or a time and frequency synchronization system for the case if at least one of the receiving positions has no noise signal or does not exceed the permissible level. The essence of the method is that the interference-free useful signal is transmitted to other points in order to pick out the interference component from the signal / noise mix. As a result, an interference-free signal is used for further processing. The mathematical models of multipath interference suppressors in the temporal and in the frequency domain are presented in the article. Compared to time processing, processing in the frequency domain reduces computational costs. The operation of the suppressor in the time domain has been verified experimentally.

In this paper, cyber physical system is analyzed from security perspective. A double closed-loop security control structure and algorithm with defense functions is proposed. From this structure, the features of several cyber attacks are considered respectively. By this structure, the models of information disclosure, denial-of-service (DoS) and Man-in-the-Middle Attack (MITM) are proposed. According to each kind attack, different models are obtained and analyzed, then reduce to the unified models. Based on this, system security conditions are obtained, and a defense scenario with detail algorithm is design to illustrate the implementation of this program.

V..  2017.  Secrecy outage probability of full-duplex networks with cognitive radio environment and partial relay selection. 2017 International Conference on Recent Advances in Signal Processing, Telecommunications Computing (SigTelCom). :119–123.

This paper investigates the secrecy performance of full-duplex relay mode in underlay cognitive radio networks using decode-and-forward relay selection. The analytical results prove that full-duplex mode can guarantee security under critical conditions such as the bad residual self-interference and the presence of hi-tech eavesdropper. The secrecy outage probability is derived based on the statistical characteristics of channels in this considered system. The system is examined under five circumferences: 1) Different values of primary network's desired outage probability; 2) Different values of primary transmitter's transmit power; 3) Applying of multiple relays selection; 4) Systems undergo path-loss during the transmission process; 5) Systems undergo self-interference in relays. Simulation results are presented to verify the analysis.

The world is becoming an immense critical information infrastructure, with the fast and increasing entanglement of utilities, telecommunications, Internet, cloud, and the emerging IoT tissue. This may create enormous opportunities, but also brings about similarly extreme security and dependability risks. We predict an increase in very sophisticated targeted attacks, or advanced persistent threats (APT), and claim that this calls for expanding the frontier of security and dependability methods and techniques used in our current CII. Extreme threats require extreme defenses: we propose resilience as a unifying paradigm to endow systems with the capability of dynamically and automatically handling extreme adversary power, and sustaining perpetual and unattended operation. In this position paper, we present this vision and describe our methodology, as well as the assurance arguments we make for the ultra-resilient components and protocols they enable, illustrated with case studies in progress.
