Shi, Z., Huang, M., Zhao, C., Huang, L., Du, X., Zhao, Y..  2017.  Detection of LSSUAV using hash fingerprint based SVDD. 2017 IEEE International Conference on Communications (ICC). :1–5.
With the rapid development of science and technology, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) gradually become the worldwide focus of science and technology. Not only the development and application but also the security of UAV is of great significance to modern society. Different from methods using radar, optical or acoustic sensors to detect UAV, this paper proposes a novel distance-based support vector data description (SVDD) algorithm using hash fingerprint as feature. This algorithm does not need large number of training samples and its computation complexity is low. Hash fingerprint is generated by extracting features of signal preamble waveforms. Distance-based SVDD algorithm is employed to efficiently detect and recognize low, slow, small unmanned aerial vehicles (LSSUAVs) using 2.4GHz frequency band.
Huang, X., Du, X., Song, B..  2017.  An Effective DDoS Defense Scheme for SDN. 2017 IEEE International Conference on Communications (ICC). :1–6.

In this paper, we propose a scheme to protect the Software Defined Network(SDN) controller from Distributed Denial-of-Service(DDoS) attacks. We first predict the amount of new requests for each openflow switch periodically based on Taylor series, and the requests will then be directed to the security gateway if the prediction value is beyond the threshold. The requests that caused the dramatic decrease of entropy will be filtered out and rules will be made in security gateway by our algorithm; the rules of these requests will be sent to the controller. The controller will send the rules to each switch to make them direct the flows matching with the rules to the honey pot. The simulation shows the averages of both false positive and false negative are less than 2%.

In this paper, we propose a new randomized response algorithm that can achieve differential-privacy and utility guarantees for consumer's behaviors, and process a batch of data at each time. Firstly, differing from traditional differential private approach-es, we add randomized response noise into the behavior signa-tures matrix to achieve an acceptable utility-privacy tradeoff. Secondly, a behavior signature modeling method based on sparse coding is proposed. After some lightweight trainings us-ing the energy consumption data, the dictionary will be associat-ed with the behavior characteristics of the electric appliances. At last, through the experimental results verification, we find that our Algorithm can preserve consumer's privacy without comprising utility.

In smart grid, large quantities of data is collected from various applications, such as smart metering substation state monitoring, electric energy data acquisition, and smart home. Big data acquired in smart grid applications is usually sensitive. For instance, in order to dispatch accurately and support the dynamic price, lots of smart meters are installed at user's house to collect the real-time data, but all these collected data are related to user privacy. In this paper, we propose a data aggregation scheme based on secret sharing with fault tolerance in smart grid, which ensures that control center gets the integrated data without revealing user's privacy. Meanwhile, we also consider fault tolerance during the data aggregation. At last, we analyze the security of our scheme and carry out experiments to validate the results.

Nowadays, with the diversification and decentralization of energy systems, the energy Internet makes it possible to interconnect distributed energy sources and consumers. In the energy trading market, the traditional centralized model relies entirely on trusted third parties. However, as the number of entities involved in the transactions grows and the forms of transactions diversify, the centralized model gradually exposes problems such as insufficient scalability, High energy consumption, and low processing efficiency. To address these challenges, we propose a secure and efficient energy renewable trading scheme based on blockchain. In our scheme, the electricity market trading model is divided into two levels, which can not only protect the privacy, but also achieve a green computing. In addition, in order to adapt to the relatively weak computing power of the underlying equipment in smart grid, we design a credibility-based equity proof mechanism to greatly improve the system availability. Compared with other similar distributed energy trading schemes, we prove the advantages of our scheme in terms of high operational efficiency and low computational overhead through experimental evaluations. Additionally, we conduct a detailed security analysis to demonstrate that our solution meets the security requirements.

Due to malicious eavesdropping, forgery as well as other risks, it is challenging to dispose and store collected power data from smart grid in secure manners. Blockchain technology has become a novel method to solve the above problems because of its de-centralization and tamper-proof characteristics. It is especially well known that data stored in blockchain cannot be changed, so it is vital to seek out perfect mechanisms to ensure that data are compliant with high quality (namely, accuracy of the power data) before being stored in blockchain. This will help avoid losses due to low-quality data modification or deletion as needed in smart grid. Thus, we apply the parallel vision theory on the identification of meter readings to realize accurate power data. A cloud-blockchain fusion model (CBFM) is proposed for the storage of accurate power data, allowing for secure conducting of flexible transactions. Only power data calculated by parallel visual system instead of image data collected originally via robot would be stored in blockchain. Hence, we define the quality assurance before data uploaded to blockchain and security guarantee after data stored in blockchain as a successive framework, which is a brand new solution to manage efficiency and security as a whole for power data and data alike in other scenes. Security analysis and performance evaluations are performed, which prove that CBFM is highly secure and efficient impressively.

Smart personal insulin pumps have been widely adopted by type 1 diabetes. However, many wireless insulin pump systems lack security mechanisms to protect them from malicious attacks. In previous works, the read-write attacks over RF channels can be launched stealthily and could jeopardize patients' lives. Protecting patients from such attacks is urgent. To address this issue, we propose a novel visible light channel based access control scheme for wireless infusion insulin pumps. This scheme employs an infrared photodiode sensor as a receiver in an insulin pump, and an infrared LED as an emitter in a doctor's reader (USB) to transmit a PIN/shared key to authenticate the doctor's USB. The evaluation results demonstrate that our scheme can reliably pass the authentication process with a low false accept rate (0.05% at a distance of 5cm).
