Information-centric networking (ICN) has played an increasingly important role in the next generation network design. However, to make better use of request-response communication mode in the ICN network, revoke user privileges more efficiently and protect user privacy more safely, an effective access control mechanism is needed. In this paper, we propose IBSS (identity-based secret sharing), which achieves efficient content distribution by using improved Shamir's secret sharing method. At the same time, collusion attacks are avoided by associating polynomials' degree with the number of users. When authenticating user identity and transmitting content, IBE and IBS are introduced to achieve more efficient and secure identity encryption. From the experimental results, the scheme only introduces an acceptable delay in file retrieval, and it can request follow-up content very efficiently.

Motions of facial components convey significant information of facial expressions. Although remarkable advancement has been made, the dynamic of facial topology has not been fully exploited. In this paper, a novel facial expression recognition (FER) algorithm called Spatial Temporal Semantic Graph Network (STSGN) is proposed to automatically learn spatial and temporal patterns through end-to-end feature learning from facial topology structure. The proposed algorithm not only has greater discriminative power to capture the dynamic patterns of facial expression and stronger generalization capability to handle different variations but also higher interpretability. Experimental evaluation on two popular datasets, CK+ and Oulu-CASIA, shows that our algorithm achieves more competitive results than other state-of-the-art methods.

Due to the rapid development of internet in our daily life, protecting privacy has become a focus of attention. To create privacy-preserving database and prevent illegal user access the database, oblivious transfer with access control (OTAC) was proposed, which is a cryptographic primitive that extends from oblivious transfer (OT). It allows a user to anonymously query a database where each message is protected by an access control policy and only if the user' s attribute satisfy that access control policy can obtain it. In this paper, we propose a new protocol for OTAC by using elliptic curve cryptography, which is more efficient compared to the existing similar protocols. In our scheme, we also preserves user's anonymity and ensures that the user's attribute is not disclosed to the sender. Additionally, our construction guarantees the user to verify the correctness of messages recovered at the end of each transfer phase.

The transition effect ring oscillator (TERO) based true random number generator (TRNG) was proposed by Varchola and Drutarovsky in 2010. There were several stochastic models for this advanced TRNG based on ring oscillator. This paper proposed an improved TERO based TRNG and implements both on Altera Cyclone series FPGA platform and on a 0.13um CMOS ASIC process. FPGA experimental results show that this balanced TERO TRNG is in good performance as the experimental data results past the national institute of standards and technology (NIST) test in 1M bit/s. The TRNG is feasible for a security SoC.

Yin, L. R., Zhou, J., Hsu, M. K..  2015.  Redesigning QR Code Ecosystem with Improved Mobile Security. 2015 IEEE 39th Annual Computer Software and Applications Conference. 3:678–679.

The QR codes have gained wide popularity in mobile marketing and advertising campaigns. However, the hidden security threat on the involved information system might endanger QR codes' success, and this issue has not been adequately addressed. In this paper we propose to examine the life cycle of a redesigned QR code ecosystem to identify the possible security risks. On top of this examination, we further propose standard changes to enhance security through a digital signature mechanism.
