Smart grid achieves reliable, efficient and flexible grid data processing by integrating traditional power grid with information and communication technology. The control center can evaluate the supply and demand of the power grid through aggregated data of users, and then dynamically adjust the power supply, price of the power, etc. However, since the grid data collected from users may disclose the user's electricity using habits and daily activities, the privacy concern has become a critical issue. Most of the existing privacy-preserving data collection schemes for smart grid adopt homomorphic encryption or randomization techniques which are either impractical because of the high computation overhead or unrealistic for requiring the trusted third party. In this paper, we propose a privacy-preserving smart grid data aggregation scheme satisfying local differential privacy (LDP) based on randomized response. Our scheme can achieve efficient and practical estimation of the statistics of power supply and demand while preserving any individual participant's privacy. The performance analysis shows that our scheme is efficient in terms of computation and communication overhead.

The whole Software-Defined Networking (SDN) system might be out of service when the control plane is overloaded by control plane saturation attacks. In this attack, a malicious host can manipulate massive table-miss packets to exhaust the control plane resources. Even though many studies have focused on this problem, systems still suffer from more influenced switches because of centralized mitigation policies, and long recovery delay because of the remaining attack flows. To solve these problems, we propose FSDM, a Fast recovery Saturation attack Detection and Mitigation framework. For detection, FSDM extracts the distribution of Control Channel Occupation Rate (CCOR) to detect the attack and locates the port that attackers come from. For mitigation, with the attacker's location and distributed Mitigation Agents, FSDM adopts different policies to migrate or block attack flows, which influences fewer switches and protects the control plane from resource exhaustion. Besides, to reduce the system recovery delay, FSDM equips a novel functional module called Force\_Checking, which enables the whole system to quickly clean up the remaining attack flows and recovery faster. Finally, we conducted extensive experiments, which show that, with the increasing of attack PPS (Packets Per Second), FSDM only suffers a minor recovery delay increase. Compared with traditional methods without cleaning up remaining flows, FSDM saves more than 81% of ping RTT under attack rate ranged from 1000 to 4000 PPS, and successfully reduced the delay of 87% of HTTP requests time under large attack rate ranged from 5000 to 30000 PPS.

Nowadays, multimedia content retrieval has become the major service requirement of the Internet and the traffic of these contents has dominated the IP traffic. To reduce the duplicated traffic and improve the performance of distributing massive volumes of multimedia contents, in-network caching has been proposed recently. However, because in-network content caching can be directly utilized to respond users' requests, multimedia content retrieval is beyond content providers' control and makes it hard for them to implement access control and service accounting. In this paper, we propose an attribute-based accountable access control scheme for multimedia content distribution while making the best of in-network caching, in which content providers can be fully offline. In our scheme, the attribute-based encryption at multimedia content provider side and access policy based authentication at the edge router side jointly ensure the secure access control, which is also efficient in both space and time. Besides, secure service accounting is implemented by letting edge routers collect service credentials generated during users' request process. Through the informal security analysis, we prove the security of our scheme. Simulation results demonstrate that our scheme is efficient with acceptable overhead.

Information Centric Networking (ICN) has been regarded as an ideal architecture for the next-generation network to handle users' increasing demand for content delivery with in-network cache. While making better use of network resources and providing better delivery service, an effective access control mechanism is needed due to wide dissemination of contents. However, in the existing solutions, making cache-enabled routers or content providers authenticate users' requests causes high computation overhead and unnecessary delay. Also, straightforward utilization of advanced encryption algorithms increases the opportunities for DoS attacks. Besides, privacy protection and service accountability are rarely taken into account in this scenario. In this paper, we propose a secure, efficient, and accountable access control framework, called SEAF, for ICN, in which authentication is performed at the network edge to block unauthorized requests at the very beginning. We adopt group signature to achieve anonymous authentication, and use hash chain technique to greatly reduce the overhead when users make continuous requests for the same file. Furthermore, the content providers can affirm the service amount received from the network and extract feedback information from the signatures and hash chains. By formal security analysis and the comparison with related works, we show that SEAF achieves the expected security goals and possesses more useful features. The experimental results also demonstrate that our design is efficient for routers and content providers, and introduces only slight delay for users' content retrieval.
