An online community based on blockchain is proposed for software developers to share, assess, and learn codes and other codes or software related knowledge. It involves three modules or roles, namely: developer (or coder, or more generally, knowledge contributor), code (or knowledge contribution), and jury (or assessor, who is usually a developer with advanced skills), in addition to the blockchain based database. Each full node of the blockchain hosts a copy of all activities of developers in such community, including uploading contributions, assessing others' contributions, and conducting transactions. Smart contracts are applicable to automate transactions after code assessment or other related activities. The system aims to assess and improve the value of codes accurately, stimulate the creativity of the developers, and improve software development efficiency, so as to establish a virtuous cycle of a software development community.

Information-Centric Networking (ICN) has attracted much attention as a promising future network design, which presents a paradigm shift from host-centric to content-centric. However, in edge computing scenarios, there is still no specific ICN forwarding mechanism to improve transmission performance. In this paper, we propose an edge-oriented forwarding mechanism (EFM) for edge computing scenarios. The rationale is to enable edge nodes smarter, such as acting as agents for both consumers and providers to improve content retrieval and distribution. On the one hand, EFM can assist consumers: the edge router can be used either as a fast content repository to satisfy consumers’ requests or as a smart delegate of consumers to request content from upstream nodes. On the other hand, EFM can assist providers: EFM leverages the optimized in-network recovery/retransmission to detect packet loss or even accelerate the content distribution. The goal of our research is to improve the performance of edge networks. Simulation results based on ndnSIM indicate that EFM can enable efficient content retrieval and distribution, friendly to both consumers and providers.

This work presents a highly reliable and tamper-resistant design of Physical Unclonable Function (PUF) exploiting Resistive Random Access Memory (RRAM). The RRAM PUF properties such as uniqueness and reliability are experimentally measured on 1 kb HfO2 based RRAM arrays. Firstly, our experimental results show that selection of the split reference and offset of the split sense amplifier (S/A) significantly affect the uniqueness. More dummy cells are able to generate a more accurate split reference, and relaxing transistor's sizes of the split S/A can reduce the offset, thus achieving better uniqueness. The average inter-Hamming distance (HD) of 40 RRAM PUF instances is 42%. Secondly, we propose using the sum of the read-out currents of multiple RRAM cells for generating one response bit, which statistically minimizes the risk of early retention failure of a single cell. The measurement results show that with 8 cells per bit, 0% intra-HD can maintain more than 50 hours at 150 °C or equivalently 10 years at 69 °C by 1/kT extrapolation. Finally, we propose a layout obfuscation scheme where all the S/A are randomly embedded into the RRAM array to improve the RRAM PUF's resistance against invasive tampering. The RRAM cells are uniformly placed between M4 and M5 across the array. If the adversary attempts to invasively probe the output of the S/A, he has to remove the top-level interconnect and destroy the RRAM cells between the interconnect layers. Therefore, the RRAM PUF has the “self-destructive” feature. The hardware overhead of the proposed design strategies is benchmarked in 64 × 128 RRAM PUF array at 65 nm, while these proposed optimization strategies increase latency, energy and area over a naive implementation, they significantly improve the performance and security.

Spatial information network is an important part of the integrated space-terrestrial information network, its bearer services are becoming increasingly complex, and real-time requirements are also rising. Due to the structural vulnerability of the spatial information network and the dynamics of the network, this poses a serious challenge to how to ensure reliable and stable data transmission. The structural vulnerability of the spatial information network and the dynamics of the network brings a serious challenge of ensuring reliable and stable data transmission. Software Defined Networking (SDN), as a new network architecture, not only can quickly adapt to new business, but also make network reconfiguration more intelligent. In this paper, SDN is used to design the spatial information network architecture. An optimization algorithm for network self-healing based on SDN is proposed to solve the failure of switching node. With the guarantee of Quality of Service (QoS) requirement, the link is updated with the least link to realize the fast network reconfiguration and recovery. The simulation results show that the algorithm proposed in this paper can effectively reduce the delay caused by fault recovery.

As a consequence of the recent development of situational awareness technologies for smart grids, the gathering and analysis of data from multiple sources offer a significant opportunity for enhanced fault diagnosis. In order to achieve improved accuracy for both fault detection and classification, a novel combined data analytics technique is presented and demonstrated in this paper. The proposed technique is based on a segmented approach to Bayesian modelling that provides probabilistic graphical representations of both electrical power and data communication networks. In this manner, the reliability of both the data communication and electrical power networks are considered in order to improve overall power system transmission line fault diagnosis.

While the Internet of Things (IoT) is embraced as important tools for efficiency and productivity, it is becoming an increasingly attractive target for cybercriminals. This work represents the first endeavor to develop practical Puncturable Attribute Based Encryption schemes that are light-weight and applicable in IoTs. In the proposed scheme, the attribute-based encryption is adopted for fine grained access control. The secret keys are puncturable to revoke the decryption capability for selected messages, recipients, or time periods, thus protecting selected important messages even if the current key is compromised. In contrast to conventional forward encryption, a distinguishing merit of the proposed approach is that the recipients can update their keys by themselves without key re-issuing from the key distributor. It does not require frequent communications between IoT devices and the key distribution center, neither does it need deleting components to expunge existing keys to produce a new key. Moreover, we devise a novel approach which efficiently integrates attribute-based key and punctured keys such that the key size is roughly the same as that of the original attribute-based encryption. We prove the correctness of the proposed scheme and its security under the Decisional Bilinear Diffie-Hellman (DBDH) assumption. We also implement the proposed scheme on Raspberry Pi and observe that the computation efficiency of the proposed approach is comparable to the original attribute-based encryption. Both encryption and decryption can be completed within tens of milliseconds.

With the development of the Internet of Things (IoT), it has been widely deployed. As many embedded devices are connected to the network and massive amounts of security-sensitive data are stored in these devices, embedded devices in IoT have become the target of attackers. The trusted computing is a key technology to guarantee the security and trustworthiness of devices' execution environment. This paper focuses on security problems on IoT devices, and proposes a security architecture for IoT devices based on the trusted computing technology. This paper implements a security management system for IoT devices, which can perform integrity measurement, real-time monitoring and security management for embedded applications, providing a safe and reliable execution environment and whitelist-based security protection for IoT devices. This paper also designs and implements an embedded security protection system based on trusted computing technology, containing a measurement and control component in the kernel and a remote graphical management interface for administrators. The kernel layer enforces the integrity measurement and control of the embedded application on the device. The graphical management interface communicates with the remote embedded device through the TCP/IP protocol, and provides a feature-rich and user-friendly interaction interface. It implements functions such as knowledge base scanning, whitelist management, log management, security policy management, and cryptographic algorithm performance testing.
