Yang, Chen, Liu, Tingting, Zuo, Lulu, Hao, Zhiyong.  2019.  An Empirical Study on the Data Security and Privacy Awareness to Use Health Care Wearable Devices. 2019 16th International Conference on Service Systems and Service Management (ICSSSM). :1–6.
Recently, several health care wearable devices which can intervene in health and collect personal health data have emerged in the medical market. Although health care wearable devices promote the integration of multi-layer medical resources and bring new ways of health applications for users, it is inevitable that some problems will be brought. This is mainly manifested in the safety protection of medical and health data and the protection of user's privacy. From the users' point of view, the irrational use of medical and health data may bring psychological and physical negative effects to users. From the government's perspective, it may be sold by private businesses in the international arena and threaten national security. The most direct precaution against the problem is users' initiative. For better understanding, a research model is designed by the following five aspects: Security knowledge (SK), Security attitude (SAT), Security practice (SP), Security awareness (SAW) and Security conduct (SC). To verify the model, structural equation analysis which is an empirical approach was applied to examine the validity and all the results showed that SK, SAT, SP, SAW and SC are important factors affecting users' data security and privacy protection awareness.
Yang, Chen, Stoleru, Radu.  2016.  Hybrid Routing in Wireless Networks with Diverse Connectivity. Proceedings of the 17th ACM International Symposium on Mobile Ad Hoc Networking and Computing. :71–80.

Real world wireless networks usually have diverse connectivity characteristics. Although existing works have identified replication as the key to the successful design of routing protocols for these networks, the questions of when the replication should be used, by how much, and how to distribute packet copies are still not satisfactorily answered. In this paper, we investigate the above questions and present the design of the Hybrid Routing Protocol (HRP). We make a key observation that delay correlations can significantly impact performance improvements gained from packet replication. Thus, we propose a novel model to capture the correlations of inter-contact times among a group of nodes. HRP utilizes both direct delays feedback and the proposed model to estimate the replication gain, which is then fed into a novel regret-minimization algorithm to dynamically decide the amount of packet replication under unknown network conditions. We evaluate HRP through extensive simulations. We show that HRP achieves up to 3.5x delivery ratio improvement and up to 50% delay reduction, with comparable and even lower overhead than state-of-art routing protocols.
