Video surveillance has been widely adopted to ensure home security in recent years. Most video encoding standards such as H.264 and MPEG-4 compress the temporal redundancy in a video stream using difference coding, which only encodes the residual image between a frame and its reference frame. Difference coding can efficiently compress a video stream, but it causes side-channel information leakage even though the video stream is encrypted, as reported in this paper. Particularly, we observe that the traffic patterns of an encrypted video stream are different when a user conducts different basic activities of daily living, which must be kept private from third parties as obliged by HIPAA regulations. We also observe that by exploiting this side-channel information leakage, attackers can readily infer a user's basic activities of daily living based on only the traffic size data of an encrypted video stream. We validate such an attack using two off-the-shelf cameras, and the results indicate that the user's basic activities of daily living can be recognized with a high accuracy.

In cloud storage, remote data integrity checking is considered as a crucial technique about data owners who upload enormous data to cloud server provider. A majority of the existing remote data integrity checking protocols rely on the expensive public key infrastructure. In addition, the verification of certificates needs heavy computation and communication cost. Meanwhile, the existing some protocols are not secure under the quantum computer attacks. However, lattice-based constructed cryptography can resist quantum computer attacks and is fairly effective, involving matrix-matrix or matrix-vector multiplications. So, we propose an identity-based remote data integrity checking protocol from lattices, which can eliminate the certificate management process and resist quantum computer attacks. Our protocol is completeness and provably secure based on the hardness small integer solution assumption. The presented scheme is secure against cloud service provider attacks, and leaks no any blocks of the stored file to the third party auditor during verification stage, namely the data privacy against the curiosity third party auditor attacks. The cloud service provider attack includes lost attack and tamper attack. Furthermore, the performance analysis of some protocols demonstrate that our protocol of remote data integrity checking is useful and efficient.

With the rapid development of bulk power grid under extra-high voltage (EHV) AC/DC hybrid power system and extensive access of distributed energy resources (DER), operation characteristics of power grid have become increasingly complicated. To cope with new severe challenges faced by safe operation of interconnected bulk power grids, an in-depth analysis of bulk power grid security defense system under the background of EHV and new energy resources was implemented from aspects of management and technology in this paper. Supported by big data and cloud computing, bulk power grid security defense system was divided into two parts: one is the prevention and control of operation risks. Power grid risks are eliminated and influence of random faults is reduced through measures such as network planning, power-cut scheme, risk pre-warning, equipment status monitoring, voltage control, frequency control and adjustment of operating mode. The other is the fault recovery control. By updating “three defense lines”, intelligent relay protection is used to deal with the challenges brought by EHV AC/DC hybrid grid and new energy resources. And then security defense system featured by passive defense is promoted to active type power grid security defense system.

Tor anonymous communication system's resource publishing is vulnerable to enumeration attacks. Zhao determines users who requested resources are unavailable as suspicious malicious users, and gradually reduce the scope of suspicious users through several stages to reduce the false positive rate. However, it takes several stages to distinguish users. Although this method successfully detects the malicious user, the malicious user has acquired many resources in the previous stages, which reduce the availability of the anonymous communication system. This paper proposes a detection method based on Integer Linear Program to detect malicious users who perform enumeration attacks on resources in the process of resource distribution. First, we need construct a bipartite graph between the unavailable resources and the users who requested for these resources in the anonymous communication system; next we use Integer Linear Program to find the minimum malicious user set. We simulate the resource distribution process through computer program, we perform an experimental analysis of the method in this paper is carried out. Experimental results show that the accuracy of the method in this paper is above 80%, when the unavailable resources in the system account for no more than 50%. It is about 10% higher than Zhao's method.
