Nasir, N. A., Jeong, S.-H..  2020.  Testbed-based Performance Evaluation of the Information-Centric Network. 2020 International Conference on Information and Communication Technology Convergence (ICTC). :166–169.
Proliferation of the Internet usage is rapidly increasing, and it is necessary to support the performance requirements for multimedia applications, including lower latency, improved security, faster content retrieval, and adjustability to the traffic load. Nevertheless, because the current Internet architecture is a host-oriented one, it often fails to support the necessary demands such as fast content delivery. A promising networking paradigm called Information-Centric Networking (ICN) focuses on the name of the content itself rather than the location of that content. A distinguished alternative to this ICN concept is Content-Centric Networking (CCN) that exploits more of the performance requirements by using in-network caching and outperforms the current Internet in terms of content transfer time, traffic load control, mobility support, and efficient network management. In this paper, instead of using the saturated method of validating a theory by simulation, we present a testbed-based performance evaluation of the ICN network. We used several new functions of the proposed testbed to improve the performance of the basic CCN. In this paper, we also show that the proposed testbed architecture performs better in terms of content delivery time compared to the basic CCN architecture through graphical results.

Ibrahim, Romani Farid.  2019.  Mobile Transaction Processing for a Distributed War Environment. 2019 14th International Conference on Computer Science Education (ICCSE). :856—862.

The battlefield environment differs from the natural environment in terms of irregular communications and the possibility of destroying communication and medical units by enemy forces. Information that can be collected in a war environment by soldiers is important information and must reach top-level commanders in time for timely decisions making. Also, ambulance staff in the battlefield need to enter the data of injured soldiers after the first aid, so that the information is available for the field hospital staff to prepare the needs for incoming injured soldiers.In this research, we propose two transaction techniques to handle these issues and use different concurrency control protocols, depending on the nature of the transaction and not a one concurrency control protocol for all types of transactions. Message transaction technique is used to collect valuable data from the battlefield by soldiers and allows top-level commanders to view it according to their permissions by logging into the system, to help them make timely decisions. In addition, use the capabilities of DBMS tools to organize data and generate reports, as well as for future analysis. Medical service unit transactional workflow technique is used to provides medical information to the medical authorities about the injured soldiers and their status, which helps them to prepare the required needs before the wounded soldiers arrive at the hospitals. Both techniques handle the disconnection problem during transaction processing.In our approach, the transaction consists of four phases, reading, editing, validation, and writing phases, and its processing is based on the optimistic concurrency control protocol, and the rules of actionability that describe how a transaction behaves if a value-change is occurred on one or more of its attributes during its processing time by other transactions.

Virtual reality (VR) recently is a promising technique in both industry and academia due to its potential applications in immersive experiences including website, game, tourism, or museum. VR technique provides an amazing 3-Dimensional (3D) experiences by requiring a very high amount of elements such as images, texture, depth, focus length, etc. However, in order to apply VR technique to various devices, especially in mobiles, ultra-high transmission rate and extremely low latency are really big challenge. Considering this problem, this paper proposes a novel combination model by transforming the computing capability of VR device into an equivalent caching amount while remaining low latency and fast transmission. In addition, Classic caching models are used to computing and catching capabilities which is easily apply to multi-user models.

A systematic study of technologies and concepts used for the design and construction of distributed fail-safe web systems has been conducted. The general principles of the design of distributed web-systems and information technologies that are used in the design of web-systems are considered. As a result of scientific research, it became clear that data backup is a determining attribute of most web systems serving. Thus, the main role in building modern web systems is to scaling them. Scaling in distributed systems is used when performing a particular operation requires a large amount of computing resources. There are two scaling options, namely vertical and horizontal. Vertical scaling is to increase the performance of existing components in order to increase overall productivity. However, for the construction of distributed systems, use horizontal scaling. Horizontal scaling is that the system is split into small components and placed on various physical computers. This approach allows the addition of new nodes to increase the productivity of the web system as a whole.

Interconnecting resource-constrained devices in the Internet of Things (IoT) is generally achieved via IP-based technologies such as 6LoWPAN, which rely on the adaptation of the TCP/IP stack to fit IoT requirements. Very recent researches suggest that the Information-Centric Networking (ICN) paradigm, which switches the way to do networking, by fetching data by names regardless of their location, would provide native support for the functionalities required by IoT applications. Indeed, ICN intrinsic features, such as caching, naming, packet level security and stateful forwarding, favor it as a promising approach in the IoT. This paper gives a qualitative comparative study between the two communication paradigms (TCP/IP and ICN), and discusses their support for IoT environments, with a focus on the required key features such as mobility, scalability, and security.

Abani, Noor, Braun, Torsten, Gerla, Mario.  2018.  Betweenness Centrality and Cache Privacy in Information-Centric Networks. Proceedings of the 5th ACM Conference on Information-Centric Networking. :106-116.

In-network caching is a feature shared by all proposed Information Centric Networking (ICN) architectures as it is critical to achieving a more efficient retrieval of content. However, the default "cache everything everywhere" universal caching scheme has caused the emergence of several privacy threats. Timing attacks are one such privacy breach where attackers can probe caches and use timing analysis of data retrievals to identify if content was retrieved from the data source or from the cache, the latter case inferring that this content was requested recently. We have previously proposed a betweenness centrality based caching strategy to mitigate such attacks by increasing user anonymity. We demonstrated its efficacy in a transit-stub topology. In this paper, we further investigate the effect of betweenness centrality based caching on cache privacy and user anonymity in more general synthetic and real world Internet topologies. It was also shown that an attacker with access to multiple compromised routers can locate and track a mobile user by carrying out multiple timing analysis attacks from various parts of the network. We extend our privacy evaluation to a scenario with mobile users and show that a betweenness centrality based caching policy provides a mobile user with path privacy by increasing an attacker's difficulty in locating a moving user or identifying his/her route.

Since the 1990s, the concept of QoE has been increasingly present and many scientists take it into account within different fields of application. Taking for example the case of video streaming, the QoE has been well studied in this case while for the web the study of its QoE is relatively neglected. The Quality of Experience (QoE) is the set of objective and subjective characteristics that satisfy retain or give confidence to a user through the life cycle of a service. There are researches that take the different measurement metrics of QoE as a subject, others attack new ways to improve this QoE in order to satisfy the customer and gain his loyalty. In this paper, we focus on the web QoE that is declined by researches despite its great importance given the complexity of new web pages and their utility that is increasingly critical. The wealth of new web pages in images, videos, audios etc. and their growing significance prompt us to write this paper, in which we discuss a new method that aims to improve the web QoE in a software-defined network (SDN). Our proposed method consists in automating and making more flexible the management of the QoE improvement of the web pages and this by writing an algorithm that, depending on the case, chooses the necessary treatment to improve the web QoE of the page concerned and using both web prefetching and caching to accelerate the data transfer when the user asks for it. The first part of the paper discusses the advantages and disadvantages of existing works. In the second part we propose an automatic algorithm that treats each case with the appropriate solution that guarantees its best performance. The last part is devoted to the evaluation of the performance.

Map-based services are becoming increasingly important in many applications. These services often need to show geospatial objects (e.g., cities and parks) in Web browsers, and being able to retrieve such objects efficiently is critical to achieving a low response time for user queries. In this demonstration we present a browser-based caching technique to store and load geospatial objects on a map in a Web page. The technique employs a hierarchical structure to store and index polygons, and does intelligent prefetching and cache replacement by utilizing the information about the user's recent browser activities. We demonstrate the usage of the technique in an application called TwitterMap for visualizing more than 1 billion tweets in real time. We show its effectiveness by using different replacement policies. The technique is implemented as a general-purpose Javascript library, making it suitable for other applications as well.

Wu, Xingbo, Ni, Fan, Jiang, Song.  2017.  Search Lookaside Buffer: Efficient Caching for Index Data Structures. Proceedings of the 2017 Symposium on Cloud Computing. :27–39.
With the ever increasing DRAM capacity in commodity computers, applications tend to store large amount of data in main memory for fast access. Accordingly, efficient traversal of index structures to locate requested data becomes crucial to their performance. The index data structures grow so large that only a fraction of them can be cached in the CPU cache. The CPU cache can leverage access locality to keep the most frequently used part of an index in it for fast access. However, the traversal on the index to a target data during a search for a data item can result in significant false temporal and spatial localities, which make CPU cache space substantially underutilized. In this paper we show that even for highly skewed accesses the index traversal incurs excessive cache misses leading to suboptimal data access performance. To address the issue, we introduce Search Lookaside Buffer (SLB) to selectively cache only the search results, instead of the index itself. SLB can be easily integrated with any index data structure to increase utilization of the limited CPU cache resource and improve throughput of search requests on a large data set. We integrate SLB with various index data structures and applications. Experiments show that SLB can improve throughput of the index data structures by up to an order of magnitude. Experiments with real-world key-value traces also show up to 73% throughput improvement on a hash table.

Recent studies shows that by the end of 2016 more than 60% of Internet traffic would be running on HTTPS. In presence of secure tunnels such as HTTPS, transparent caching solutions become in vain, as the application payload is encrypted by lower level security protocols. This paper addresses this issue and provides an alternate approach, for contents caching without compromising their security. There are three parts to our proposal. First, we propose two new IP layer primitives that allow routers to differentiate between IP and ICN flows. Second, we introduce DCAR (Dual-mode Content Aware Router), which is a traditional IP router enabled to understand the proposed IP primitives. Third, design of DISCS (DCAR based Information centric Secure Content Sharing) framework is proposed that leverages DCAR to allow content object caching along with security services that are comparable to HTTPS. Finally we share details on realizing such system.
