  • Hamadache, K.; Zerva, P., "Provenance of Feedback in Cloud Services," Service Oriented System Engineering (SOSE), 2014 IEEE 8th International Symposium on, pp. 23, 34, 7-11 April 2014. doi: 10.1109/SOSE.2014.10 With the fast adoption of Services Computing, even more driven by the emergence of the Cloud, the need to ensure accountability for quality of service (QoS) for service-based systems/services has reached a critical level. This need has triggered numerous researches in the fields of trust, reputation and provenance. Most of the researches on trust and reputation have focused on their evaluation or computation. In case of provenance they have tried to track down how the service has processed and produced data during its execution. If some of them have investigated credibility models and mechanisms, only few have looked into the way reputation information is produced. In this paper we propose an innovative design for the evaluation of feedback authenticity and credibility by considering the feedback's provenance. This innovative consideration brings up a new level of security and trust in Services Computing, by fighting against malicious feedback and reducing the impact of irrelevant one.

  • Wei-Tek Tsai; Peide Zhong, "Multi-tenancy and Sub-tenancy Architecture in Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)," Service Oriented System Engineering (SOSE), 2014 IEEE 8th International Symposium on, pp.128,139, 7-11 April 2014. doi: 10.1109/SOSE.2014.20 Multi-tenancy architecture (MTA) is often used in Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and the central idea is that multiple tenant applications can be developed using components stored in the SaaS infrastructure. Recently, MTA has been extended where a tenant application can have its own sub-tenants as the tenant application acts like a SaaS infrastructure. In other words, MTA is extended to STA (Sub-Tenancy Architecture). In STA, each tenant application not only needs to develop its own functionalities, but also needs to prepare an infrastructure to allow its sub-tenants to develop customized applications. This paper formulates eight models for STA, and discusses their trade-offs including their formal notations and application scenarios.

Its effective unlimited storage, quick availability of the infrastructure with scalability, flexibility and availability of distributed testing environment translate to reducing the execution time of testing of large applications and hence lead to cost-effective solutions. In cloud testing, Testing-as-a-Service (TaaS) is a new model to effectively provide testing capabilities and on-demand testing to end users. There are many studies and solutions to support TaaS service. And security testing is the most suitable form for TaaS service. To leverage the features of TaaS, we propose a framework of TaaS for security testing. We implement the prototype system, Security TaaS (abbrev. S-TaaS) based on our proposed framework. The experiments are conducted to evaluate the performance of our framework and prototype system. The experiment results indicate that our prototype system can provide quality and stable service.

When a MapReduce framework is deployed in an open computation environment, the trustworthiness of the participant workers becomes an important issue because of security threats and the motivation of subjective cheating. Current integrity protection mechanisms are based on replication techniques and use redundant computation to process the same task. However, these solutions require a large amount of computation resource and lack scalability. A probe injection-based identification of malicious worker (PIIM) method is explored in this study. The method randomly injects the probes, whose results are previously known, into the input data and detects malicious workers by analyzing the processed results of the probes. A method of obtaining the set of workers involved in the computation of each probe is proposed by analyzing the shuffle phase in the MapReduce programming model. An EnginTrust-based reputation mechanism that employs information on probe execution is then designed to evaluate the trustworthiness of all the workers and detect the malicious ones. The proposed method operates at the application level and requires no modification to the MapReduce framework. Simulation experiments indicate that the proposed method is effective in detecting malicious workers in large-scale computations. In a system with 100 workers wherein 20 of them are malicious, a detection rate of above 97% can be achieved with only 500 randomly injected probes.

From the perspective of binary sequence, Dalvik VM file is syncopated in method, and these test samples are analyzed by automated DEX file parsing tools and Levenshtein distance algorithm, which can detect the malicious Android applications that contain the same signatures effectively. Proved by a large number of samples, this static detection system that based on signature sequences can't only detect malicious code quickly, but also has a very low rate of false positives and false negatives.

  • AlJahdali, H.; Albatli, A.; Garraghan, P.; Townend, P.; Lau, L.; Jie Xu, "Multi-tenancy in Cloud Computing," Service Oriented System Engineering (SOSE), 2014 IEEE 8th International Symposium on, pp. 344, 351, 7-11 April 2014. doi: 10.1109/SOSE.2014.50 As Cloud Computing becomes the trend of information technology computational model, the Cloud security is becoming a major issue in adopting the Cloud where security is considered one of the most critical concerns for the large customers of Cloud (i.e. governments and enterprises). Such valid concern is mainly driven by the Multi-Tenancy situation which refers to resource sharing in Cloud Computing and its associated risks where confidentiality and/or integrity could be violated. As a result, security concerns may harness the advancement of Cloud Computing in the market. So, in order to propose effective security solutions and strategies a good knowledge of the current Cloud implementations and practices, especially the public Clouds, must be understood by professionals. Such understanding is needed in order to recognize attack vectors and attack surfaces. In this paper we will propose an attack model based on a threat model designed to take advantage of Multi-Tenancy situation only. Before that, a clear understanding of Multi-Tenancy, its origin and its benefits will be demonstrated. Also, a novel way on how to approach Multi-Tenancy will be illustrated. Finally, we will try to sense any suspicious behavior that may indicate to a possible attack where we will try to recognize the proposed attack model empirically from Google trace logs. Google trace logs are a 29-day worth of data released by Google. The data set was utilized in reliability and power consumption studies, but not been utilized in any security study to the extent of our knowledge.

  • Wei Xiong; Wei-Tek Tsai, "HLA-Based SaaS-Oriented Simulation Frameworks," Service Oriented System Engineering (SOSE), 2014 IEEE 8th International Symposium on, pp.376, 383, 7-11 April 2014 doi: 10.1109/SOSE.2014.74 SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) as a part of cloud computing is a new approach for software construction, evolution, and delivery. This paper proposes HLA-based SaaS-oriented simulation frameworks where simulation services will be organized into a SaaS framework running in a cloud environment. This SaaS-oriented framework can be applied to multiple application domains but illustrated by using HLA (High-Level Architecture). The framework will allow integration of a variety of modules, service-oriented design, flexible customization, multi-granularity simulation, high-performance computing, and system security. It has the potential to reduce system development time, and allows simulation to be run in a cloud environment taking advantages of resources offered by the cloud.

The presented approach enables malware analysts to identify and categorize malicious software through its high-level goals as well as down to the individual functions executed on operating system level. We demonstrate the practical application of the schema by mapping dynamically extracted system call patterns to a comprehensive hierarchy of malicious behavior.

Code obfuscation techniques counter such attacks by transforming code into patterns that resist the attacks. None of the current code obfuscation techniques satisfy all the obfuscation effectiveness criteria such as resistance to reverse engineering attacks and state space increase. To address this, we introduce new code patterns that we call nontrivial code clones and propose a new obfuscation scheme that combines nontrivial clones with existing obfuscation techniques to satisfy all the effectiveness criteria. The nontrivial code clones need to be constructed manually, thus adding to the development cost. This cost can be limited by cloning only the code fragments that need protection and by reusing the clones across projects. This makes it worthwhile considering the security risks. In this paper, we present our scheme and illustrate it with a toy example.

Consequently, smart grids are more vulnerable to cyber-attacks. In this position paper, we advocate the need for management patterns that capture best-practices for ensuring the resilience of smart grids to cyber-attacks and other related challenges. Management patterns are akin to software design patterns in the sense that patterns promote the use of well-established solutions to recurring problems. These patterns describe how to orchestrate the cyber-physical behaviour of ICT, industrial control systems and human resources in a safe manner, in response to cyber-attacks.

A socio-technical system can be modelled as a series of inter-related, and interacting patterns of behaviour. Within a socio-technical system a security requirements can be derived from the analysis and interaction of the pattern. To capture and understand these requirements/patterns we need to make use of a formal reasoning system that supports a rigorous deductive process. In this paper we will develop a formal model of a socio -- technical systems pattern using a Kripke Semantic model. Then, via the application of Kripke Semantics to the modelling of responsibilities and how they are created/fulfilled within a socio -- context, we will derive a set of security requirements/patterns.

We outline the functionality needed for such cases in a general form, which could be utilised when considering the development of similar large-scale systems in the future.

During last couple of years many protocols to authenticate remote users using smart cards have been proposed. But unfortunately, most of them are proved to be unsecure against various attacks. Recently this year, Yung-Cheng Lee improved Shin et al.'s protocol and claimed that their protocol is more secure. In this article, we have shown that Yung-Cheng-Lee's protocol too has defects. It does not provide user anonymity; it is vulnerable to Denial-of-Service attack, Session key reveal, user impersonation attack, Server impersonation attack and insider attacks. Further it is not efficient in password change phase since it requires communication with server and uses verification table.

This paper introduces mitigation strategies to defend the cloud specific CIDoS class of attacks (Cloud-Internal Denial of Service), presented in [1]. The mitigation approaches are based on techniques used in signals processing field. The main strategy to detect the attack is the calculation of correlations measurement and distances between attackers workload patters, we use DCT (Discrete Cosine Transform) to accomplish this task. This paper also suggests some prevention and response strategies.

These networks are producing large amounts of data that need to be stored, processed and analysed. Cloud technology is being used to meet these challenges. However, a key issue is how to provide security for data stored in the Cloud. This paper addresses this issue in two ways. It first proposes a new security framework for Cloud security which deals with all the major system entities. Secondly, it introduces a Capability ID system based on modified IPv6 addressing which can be used to implement a security framework for Cloud storage. The paper then shows how these techniques are being used to build an e-Health system for patient monitoring.

However, the development of the AMI network brings with it security issues, including the increasingly serious risk of malware in the new emerging network. Malware is often embedded in the data payloads of legitimate metering data. It is difficult to detect malware in metering devices, which are resource-constrained embedded systems, during time-critical communications. This paper describes a method in order to distinguish malware-bearing traffic and legitimate metering data using a disassembler and statistical analysis. Based on the discovered unique characteristic of each data type, the proposed method detects malicious metering data. (i.e. malware-bearing data). The analysis of data payloads is statistically performed while investigating a distribution of instructions in traffic by using a disassembler. Doing so demonstrates that the distribution of instructions in metering data is significantly different from that in malware-bearing data. The proposed approach successfully identifies the two different types of data with complete accuracy, with 0% false positives and 0% false negatives.
