In this paper, a closely packed Biosensor construction by using a two-dimensional structure is described. This structure uses air-holes slab constructed on silicon material. By removing certain air holes in the slab, waveguides are constructed. By carrying out simulation, it is proved that the harmonic guided wave changes to lengthier wavelengths with reagents, pesticides, proteins & DNA capturing. A Biosensor is constructed with an improved Quality factor & wavelength. This gives high Quality Factor (HQF) resolution Biosensor. The approach used for Simulation purpose is Finite Difference Time Domain(FDTD).

Li, C.-Y., Chang, C.-H., Lu, D.-Y..  2020.  Full-Duplex Self-Recovery Optical Fibre Transport System Based on a Passive Single-Line Bidirectional Optical Add/Drop Multiplexer. IEEE Photonics Journal. 12:1–10.
A full-duplex self-recovery optical fibre transport system is proposed on the basis of a novel passive single-line bidirectional optical add/drop multiplexer (SBOADM). This system aims to achieve an access network with low complexity and network protection capability. Polarisation division multiplexing technique, optical double-frequency application and wavelength reuse method are also employed in the transport system to improve wavelength utilisation efficiency and achieve colourless optical network unit. When the network comprises a hybrid tree-ring topology, the downstream signals can be bidirectionally transmitted and the upstream signals can continuously be sent back to the central office in the reverse pathways due to the remarkable routing function of the SBOADM. Thus, no complicated optical multiplexer/de-multiplexer components or massive optical switches are required in the transport system. If a fibre link failure occurs in the ring topology, then the blocked network connections can be recovered by switching only a single optical switch preinstalled in the remote node. Simulation results show that the proposed architecture can recover the network function effectively and provide identical transmission performance to overcome the impact of a breakpoint in the network. The proposed transport system presents remarkable flexibility and convenience in expandability and breakpoint self-recovery.

Kaur, S., Singh, S..  2020.  Highly Secured all Optical DIM Codes using AND Gate. 2020 Indo – Taiwan 2nd International Conference on Computing, Analytics and Networks (Indo-Taiwan ICAN). :64—68.
Optical Code Division Multiple Access (OCDMA) is an inevitable innovation to cope up with the impediments of regularly expanding information traffic and numerous user accesses in optical systems. In Spectral Amplitude Coding (SAC)-OCDMA systems cross correlation and Multiple Access Interference (MAI) are utmost concerns. For eliminating the cross correlation, reducing the MAI and to enhance the security, in this work, all optical Diagonal Identity Matrices codes (DIM) with Zero Cross-Correlation (ZCC) and optical gating are presented. Chip rate of the proposed work is 0.03 ns and total 60 users are considered with semiconductor optical amplifier based AND operation. Effects of optical gating are analyzed in the presence/absence of eavesdropper in terms of Q factor and received extinction ratio. Proposed system has advantages for service provider because this is mapping free technique and can be easily designed for large number of users.

Chukry, Souheil, Sbeyti, Hassan.  2019.  Security Enhancement in Storage Area Network. 2019 7th International Symposium on Digital Forensics and Security (ISDFS). :1—5.

Living in the age of digital transformation, companies and individuals are moving to public and private clouds to store and retrieve information, hence the need to store and retrieve data is exponentially increasing. Existing storage technologies such as DAS are facing a big challenge to deal with these huge amount of data. Hence, newer technologies should be adopted. Storage Area Network (SAN) is a distributed storage technology that aggregates data from several private nodes into a centralized secure place. Looking at SAN from a security perspective, clearly physical security over multiple geographical remote locations is not adequate to ensure a full security solution. A SAN security framework needs to be developed and designed. This work investigates how SAN protocols work (FC, ISCSI, FCOE). It also investigates about other storages technologies such as Network Attached Storage (NAS) and Direct Attached Storage (DAS) including different metrics such as: IOPS (input output per second), Throughput, Bandwidths, latency, cashing technologies. This research work is focusing on the security vulnerabilities in SAN listing different attacks in SAN protocols and compare it to other such as NAS and DAS. Another aspect of this work is to highlight performance factors in SAN in order to find a way to improve the performance focusing security solutions aimed to enhance the security level in SAN.

We present a system architecture for autonomic operation, administration and maintenance of both the optical and digital layers within the integrated optical transport network infrastructure. This framework encompasses the end-to-end instrumentation: From equipment commissioning to automatic discovery and bring-up, to self-managed, self-(re)configuring optical transport layer. We leverage prevalent networking protocols to build an autonomic control plane for the optical network elements. Various aspects of security, a critical element for self-managed operations, are addressed. We conclude with a discussion on the interaction with SDN, and how autonomic functions can benefit from these capabilities, a brief survey of standardization activities and scope for future work.

Up to now, Software-defined network (SDN) has been developing for many years and various controller implementations have appeared. Most of these controllers contain the normal business logic as well as security defense function. This makes the business logic on the controller tightly coupled with the security function, which increases the burden of the controller and is not conducive to the evolution of the controller. To address this problem, we propose a proactive security framework PSA, which decouples the business logic and security function of the controller, and deploys the security function in the proactive security layer which lies between the data plane and the control plane, so as to provide a unified security defense framework for different controller implementations. Based on PSA, we design a security defense application for the data-to-control plane saturation attack, which overloads the infrastructure of SDN networks. We evaluate the prototype implementation of PSA in the software environments. The results show that PSA is effective with adding only minor overhead into the entire SDN infrastructure.

A recent proposed physical layer encryption technique uses an all-optical setup based on spatial light modulators to split two or more wavelength division multiplexed (WDM) signals in several spectral slices and to shuffle these slices. As a result, eavesdroppers aimed to recover information from a single target signal need to handle all the signals involved in the shuffling process. In this work, computer simulations are used to analyse the case where the shuffled signals propagate through different optical routes. From a security point of view, this is an interesting possibility because it obliges eavesdroppers to tap different optical fibres/ cables. On the other hand, each shuffled signal experiences different physical impairments and the deleterious consequences of these effects must be carefully investigated. Our results indicate that, in a metropolitan area network environment, penalties caused by attenuation and dispersion differences may be easily compensated with digital signal processing algorithms that are presently deployed.

A novel optical fiber sensing network is proposed to eliminate the effect of multiple fiber failures. Simulation results show that if the number of breakpoint in each subnet is less than four, the optical routing paths can be reset to avoid those breakpoints by changing the status of optical switches in the remote nodes.

In multicarrier direct modulation direct detection systems, interaction between laser chirp and fiber group velocity dispersion induces subcarrier-to-subcarrier intermixing interferences (SSII) after detection. Such SSII become a major impairment in orthogonal frequency division multiplexing-based access systems, where a high modulation index, leading to large chirp, is required to maximize the system power budget. In this letter, we present and experimentally verify an analytical formulation to predict the level of signal and SSII and estimate the signal to noise ratio of each subcarrier, enabling improved bit-and-power loading and subcarrier attribution. The reported model is compact, and only requires the knowledge of basic link characteristics and laser parameters that can easily be measured.
