Zheng-Qi Kang; Ke-Wei Lv, "New Results on the Hardness of ElGamal and RSA Bits Based on Binary Expansions," Information Science and Control Engineering (ICISCE), 2015 2nd International Conference on, pp.336,340, 24-26 April 2015. doi:10.1109/ICISCE.2015.81
Abstract: González Vasco et al. extend the area of application of algorithms for the hidden number problem in 2004. Using this extension and relations among the bits in and binary fraction expansion of x mod p/p, we present a probabilistic algorithm for some trapdoor functions to recover a hidden message when an imperfect oracle is given of predicting most significant bits in hidden message. We show that computing the most significant bit in message encrypted by ElGmal encryption function is as hard as computing the entire plaintext, and so is RSA.

Abstract: We present UBackup-II, an anonymous storage overlay network based on personal multi-cloud storages, with flexible QoS awareness. We reform the original Tor protocol by extending the command set and adding a tail part to the Tor cell, which makes it possible for coordination among proxy servers and still keeps the anonymity. Thus, users can upload and download files secretly under the cover of several proxy servers. Moreover, users can develop a personalized QoS policy leading different hidden access patterns according to their own QoS requirement. We presented the design of UBackup-II in detail, analyzed the security policy and showed how different QoS policies works by conducting a simulating experiment.

Abstract: Context-based query processing methods are used to capture user intents behind query inputs. General context models are not flexible or explicable enough for inference, because they are either static or implicit. This paper improves current context model and proposes a novel query processing approach based on associated semantic context inference. In our approach, the formal defined context is explicit, which is convenient to explore potential information during query processing. Furthermore, the context is dynamically constructed and further modified according to specific query tasks, which ensures the precision of context inference. For given query inputs, the approach builds concrete context models and refines queries based on semantic context inference. Finally, queries are translated into SPARQL for query engine. The experiment shows that the proposed approach can further improve query intents understanding to guarantee precision and recall in retrieval.

Abstract: In order to achieve secure authentication, an asynchronous challenge-response authentication solution is proposed. SD key, encryption cards or encryption machine provide encryption service. Hash function, symmetric algorithm and combined secret key method are adopted while authenticating. The authentication security is guaranteed due to the properties of hash function, combined secret key method and one-time authentication token generation method. Generate random numbers, one-time combined secret key and one-time token on the basis of smart card, encryption cards and cryptographic technique, which can avoid guessing attack. Moreover, the replay attack is avoided because of the time factor. The authentication solution is applicable for cloud application systems to realize multi-factor authentication and enhance the security of authentication.

Abstract: In order to trade-off between computational effects and computational cost of present image encryption algorithm, a novel image encryption algorithm based on lifting-based wavelet transform is proposed in this paper. The image encryption process includes three steps: first the original image was divided into blocks, which were transformed by lifting based wavelet, secondly the wavelet domain coefficients were encryption by random mask which generated by user key, and finally employing Arnold scrambling to encrypt the coefficients. The security of proposed scheme is depended on the levels of wavelet transform, user key, and the times of Arnold scrambling. Theoretical analysis and experimental results demonstrate that the algorithm is favourable.

Abstract: This paper has conducted a trial in establishing a systematic instrument for evaluating the performance of the marine information systems. Analytic Network Process (ANP) was introduced for determining the relative importance of a set of interdependent criteria concerned by the stakeholders (shipper/consignee, customer broker, forwarder, and container yard). Three major information platforms (MTNet, TradeVan, and Nice Shipping) in Taiwan were evaluated according to the criteria derived from ANP. Results show that the performance of marine information system can be divided into three constructs, namely: Safety and Technology (3 items), Service (3 items), and Charge (3 items). The Safety and Technology is the most important construct of marine information system evaluation, whereas Charger is the least important construct. This study give insights to improve the performance of the existing marine information systems and serve as the useful reference for the future freight information platform.

Abstract: In this paper, the optimal Context quantization for the source is present. By considering correlations among values of source symbols, these conditional probability distributions are sorted by values of conditions firstly. Then the dynamic programming is used to implement the Context quantization. The description length of the Context model is used as the judgment parameter. Based on the criterion that the neighbourhood conditional probability distributions could be merged, our algorithm finds the optimal structure with minimum description length and the optimal Context quantization results could be achieved. The experiment results indicate that the proposed algorithm could achieve the similar result with other adaptive Context quantization algorithms with reasonable computational complexity.

Abstract: Cloud computing is a revolution in information technology. The cloud consumer outsources their sensitive data and personal information to cloud provider's servers which is not within the same trusted domain of data-owner so most challenging issues arises in cloud are data security users privacy and access control. In this paper we also have proposed a method to achieve fine grained security with combined approach of PGP and Kerberos in cloud computing. The proposed method provides authentication, confidentiality, integrity, and privacy features to Cloud Service Providers and Cloud Users.

Abstract: Steganography is a art of hiding information in a host signal. It is very important to hide the secret data efficiently, as many attacks made on the data communication. The host signal can be a still image, speech or video and the message signal that is hidden in the host signal can be a text, image or an audio signal. The cryptography concept is used for locking the secret message in the cover file. The cryptography makes the secret message not understood unless the decryption key is available. It is related with constructing and analyzing various methods that overcome the influence of third parties. Modern cryptography works on the disciplines like mathematics, computer science and electrical engineering. In this paper a symmetric key is developed which consists of reshuffling and secret arrangement of secret signal data bits in cover signal data bits. In this paper the authors have performed the encryption process on secret speech signal data bits-level to achieve greater strength of encryption which is hidden inside the cover image. The encryption algorithm applied with embedding method is the robust secure method for data hiding.
