Joyokusumo, Irfan, Putra, Handika, Fatchurrahman, Rifqi.  2020.  A Machine Learning-Based Strategy For Predicting The Fault Recovery Duration Class In Electric Power Transmission System. 2020 International Conference on Technology and Policy in Energy and Electric Power (ICT-PEP). :252–257.
Energy security program which becomes the part of energy management must ensure the high reliability of the electric power transmission system so that the customer can be served very well. However, there are several problems that can hinder reliability achievement such as the long duration of fault recovery. On the other side, the prediction of fault recovery duration becomes a very challenging task. Because there are still few machine learning-based solution offer this paper proposes a machine learning-based strategy by using Naive-Bayes Classifier (NBC) and Support Vector Machine (SVM) in predicting the fault recovery duration class. The dataset contains 3398 rows of non-temporary-fault type records, six input features (Substation, Asset Type, Fault Category, Outage Start Time, Outage Day, and Outage Month) and single target feature (Fault Recovery Duration). According to the performance test result, those two methods reach around 97-99% of accuracy, average sensitivity, and average specificity. In addition, one of the advantages obtained in field of fault recovery prediction is increasing the accuracy of likelihood level calculation of the long fault recovery time risk.

Opportunistic routing (OR) is gaining popularity in low-duty wireless sensor network (WSN), so the need for efficient and reliable data transmission is becoming more essential. Reliable transmission is only feasible if the routing protocols are secure and efficient. Due to high energy consumption, current cryptographic schemes for WSN are not suitable. Trust-based OR will ensure security and reliability with fewer resources and minimum energy consumption. OR selects the set of potential candidates for each sensor node using a prioritized metric by load balancing among the nodes. This paper introduces a trust-based load-balanced OR for duty-cycled wireless sensor networks. The candidates are prioritized on the basis of a trusted OR metric that is divided into two parts. First, the OR metric is based on the average of four probability distributions: the distance from node to sink distribution, the expected number of hops distribution, the node degree distribution, and the residual energy distribution. Second, the trust metric is based on the average of two probability distributions: the direct trust distribution and the recommended trust distribution. Finally, the trusted OR metric is calculated by multiplying the average of two metrics distributions in order to direct more traffic through the higher priority nodes. The simulation results show that our proposed protocol provides a significant improvement in the performance of the network compared to the benchmarks in terms of energy consumption, end to end delay, throughput, and packet delivery ratio.

Qu, Dapeng, Zhang, Jiankun, Hou, Zhenhuan, Wang, Min, Dong, Bo.  2020.  A Trust Routing Scheme Based on Identification of Non-complete Cooperative Nodes in Mobile Peer-to-Peer Networks. 2020 IEEE 19th International Conference on Trust, Security and Privacy in Computing and Communications (TrustCom). :22–29.
Mobile peer-to-peer network (MP2P) attracts increasing attentions due to the ubiquitous use of mobile communication and huge success of peer-to-peer (P2P) mode. However, open p2p mode makes nodes tend to be selfish, and the scarcity of resources in mobile nodes aggravates this problem, thus the nodes easily express a non-complete cooperative (NCC) attitude. Therefore, an identification of non-complete cooperative nodes and a corresponding trust routing scheme are proposed for MP2P in this paper. The concept of octant is firstly introduced to build a trust model which analyzes nodes from three dimensions, namely direct trust, internal state and recommendation reliability, and then the individual non-complete cooperative (INCC) nodes can be identified by the division of different octants. The direct trust monitors nodes' external behaviors, and the consideration of internal state and recommendation reliability contributes to differentiate the subjective and objective non-cooperation, and mitigate the attacks about direct trust values respectively. Thus, the trust model can identify various INCC nodes accurately. On the basis of identification of INCC nodes, cosine similarity method is applied to identify collusive non-complete cooperate (CNCC) nodes. Moreover, a trust routing scheme based on the identification of NCC nodes is presented to reasonably deal with different kinds of NCC nodes. Results from extensive simulation experiments demonstrate that this proposed identification and routing scheme have better performances, in terms of identification precision and packet delivery fraction than current schemes respectively.

Xudong, Yang.  2020.  Network congestion control and reliability optimization with multiple time delays from the perspective of information security. 2020 International Conference on Advance in Ambient Computing and Intelligence (ICAACI). :16–20.
As a new type of complex system, multi delay network in the field of information security undertakes the important responsibility of solving information congestion, balancing network bandwidth and traffic. The problems of data loss, program failure and a large number of system downtime still exist in the conventional multi delay system when dealing with the problem of information jam, which makes the corresponding reliability of the whole system greatly reduced. Based on this, this paper mainly studies and analyzes the stability system and reliability of the corresponding multi delay system in the information security perspective. In this paper, the stability and reliability analysis of multi delay systems based on linear matrix and specific function environment is innovatively proposed. Finally, the sufficient conditions of robust asymptotic stability of multi delay systems are obtained. At the same time, the relevant stability conditions and robust stability conditions of multi delay feedback switched systems are given by simulation. In the experimental part, the corresponding data and conclusions are simulated. The simulation results show that the reliability and stability analysis data of multi delay system proposed in this paper have certain experimental value.
Gava, Jonas, Reis, Ricardo, Ost, Luciano.  2020.  RAT: A Lightweight System-Level Soft Error Mitigation Technique. 2020 IFIP/IEEE 28th International Conference on Very Large Scale Integration (VLSI-SOC). :165–170.
To achieve a substantial reliability and safety level, it is imperative to provide electronic computing systems with appropriate mechanisms to tackle soft errors. This paper proposes a low-cost system-level soft error mitigation technique, which allocates the critical application function to a pool of specific general-purpose processor registers. Both the critical function and the register pool are automatically selected by a developed profiling tool. The proposed technique was validated through more than 320K fault injections considering a Linux kernel, different benchmarks and two multicore ARM processors. Results show that our technique significantly reduces the code size and performance overheads while providing reliability improvement, w.r.t. the Triple Modular Redundancy (TMR) technique.

In the current generation, road accidents and security problems increase dramatically worldwide in our day to day life. In order to overcome this, Vehicular Ad-hoc Network (VANETs) is considered as a key element of future Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). With the advancement in vehicular communications, the attacks have also increased, and such architecture is still exposed to many weaknesses which led to numerous security threats that must be addressed before VANET technology is practically and safely adopted. Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack, replay attacks and Sybil attacks are the significant security threats that affect the communication and privacy in VANET. An algorithm to detect and prevent various kinds of security attacks in VANET communication has been designed and proposed in this work. An analysis has also been done by applying four protocols on an existing scenario of real traffic simulator using OpenStreetMap and the best suitable protocol has been selected for further application. The evaluation has been done using SUMO, NS3 and Java simulation environment. Simulation results and extensive performance analysis shows that our proposed Algorithm performs well in detecting and preventing the attacks in VANET communication.

Gameiro, Luís, Senna, Carlos, Luís, Miguel.  2020.  Context-Based Forwarding for Mobile ICNs. 2020 IEEE International Conference on Communications Workshops (ICC Workshops). :1–6.
Over the last couple of decades, mobile ad-hoc networks (MANETs) have been at the forefront of research, yet still are afflicted by high network fragmentation, due to their continuous node mobility and geographical dispersion. To address these concerns, a new paradigm was proposed, Information-Centric Networks (ICN), whose focus is the delivery of Content based on names. This article aims to use ICN concepts towards the delivery of both urgent and non-urgent information in urban mobile environments. In order to do so, a context-based forwarding strategy was proposed, with a very clear goal: to take advantage of both packet Names and Data, and node's neighborhood analysis in order to successfully deliver content into the network in the shortest period of time, and without worsening network congestion. The design, implementation and validation of the proposed strategy was performed using the ndnSIM platform along with real mobility traces from communication infrastructure of the Porto city. The results show that the proposed context-based forwarding strategy presents a clear improvement regarding the Data resolution, while maintaining network overhead at a constant.

With increasing improvements in different areas, Internet control has been making prominent impacts in almost all areas of technology that has resulted in reasonable advances in every discrete field and therefore the industries too are proceeding to the field of IoT (Internet of Things), in which the communication among heterogeneous equipments is via Internet broadly. So imparting these advances of technology in the Power Station Plant sectors i.e. the power plants will be remotely controlled additional to remote monitoring, with no corporal place as a factor for controlling or monitoring. But imparting this technology the security factor needs to be considered as a basic and such methods need to be put into practice that the communication in such networks or control systems is defended against any third party interventions while the data is being transferred from one device to the other device through the internet (Unrestricted Channel). The paper puts forward exercising RSA,DES and AES encrypting schemes for the purpose of data encryption at the Data Link Layer i.e. before it is transmitted to the other device through Internet and as a result of this the security constraints are maintained. The records put to use have been supplied by NTPC, Dadri, India plus simulation part was executed employing MATLAB.

Mutalemwa, Lilian C., Shin, Seokjoo.  2020.  Improving the Packet Delivery Reliability and Privacy Protection in Monitoring Wireless Networks. 2020 International Conference on Information and Communication Technology Convergence (ICTC). :1083—1088.
Source location privacy (SLP) protection ensures security of assets in monitoring wireless sensor networks (WSNs). Also, low end-to-end delay (EED) and high packet delivery ratio (PDR) guarantee high packet delivery reliability. Therefore, it is important to ensure high levels of SLP protection, low EED, and high PDR in mission-critical monitoring applications. Thus, this study proposes a new angle-based agent node routing protocol (APr) which is capable of achieving high levels of SLP protection, low EED, and high PDR. The proposed APr protocol employs multiple routing strategies to enable a dynamic agent node selection process and creation of obfuscating routing paths. Analysis results reveal that the APr protocol achieves high packet delivery reliability to outperform existing intermediate node-based protocols such as the AdrR and tree-based protocols such as the TbR. Furthermore, the APr protocol achieves significantly high levels of SLP protection to outperform the AdrR protocol.

The Internet Transport Protocol (ITP) is introduced to support reliable end-to-end transport services in the IP Internet without the need for end-to-end connections, changes to the Internet routing infrastructure, or modifications to name-resolution services. Results from simulation experiments show that ITP outperforms the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) and the Named Data Networking (NDN) architecture, which requires replacing the Internet Protocol (IP). In addition, ITP allows transparent content caching while enforcing privacy.

Yang, Jianguo, Lei, Dengyun, Chen, Deyang, Li, Jing, Jiang, Haijun, Ding, Qingting, Luo, Qing, Xue, Xiaoyong, Lv, Hangbing, Zeng, Xiaoyang et al..  2020.  A Machine-Learning-Resistant 3D PUF with 8-layer Stacking Vertical RRAM and 0.014% Bit Error Rate Using In-Cell Stabilization Scheme for IoT Security Applications. 2020 IEEE International Electron Devices Meeting (IEDM). :28.6.1–28.6.4.
In this work, we propose and demonstrate a multi-layer 3-dimensional (3D) vertical RRAM (VRRAM) PUF with in-cell stabilization scheme to improve both cost efficiency and reliability. An 8-layer VRRAM array was manufactured with excellent uniformity and good endurance of \textbackslashtextgreater107. Apart from the variation in RRAM resistance, enhanced randomness is obtained thanks to the parasitic IR drop and abundant sneak current paths in 3D VRRAM. To deal with the common issue of unstable bits in PUF output, in-cell stabilization is proposed by first employing asymmetric biasing to detect the unstable bits and then exploiting reprogramming to expand the deviation to stabilize the output. The bit error rate is reduced by \textbackslashtextgreater7X (68X) for 3(5) times reprogramming. The proposed PUF features excellent resistance against machine learning attack and passes both National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) 800-22 and NIST 800-90B test suites.

With the construction of State Grid informatization, professional data such as operation inspection, marketing, and regulation have gradually shifted from offline to online. In recent years, cyberspace security incidents have occurred frequently, and national and group cybersecurity threats have emerged. As the next-generation communication system, quantum security has to satisfy the security requirements. Also, it is especially important to build the fusion application of energy network quantum private communication technology and conventional network, and to form a safe and reliable quantum-level communication technology solution suitable for the power grid. In this paper, from the perspective of the multi-terminal quantum key application, combined with a mature electricity consumption information collection system, a handheld meter reading solution based on quantum private communication technology is proposed to effectively integrate the two and achieve technological upgrading. First, from the technical theory and application fields, the current situation of quantum private communication technology and its feasibility of combining with classical facilities are introduced and analyzed. Then, the hardware security module and handheld meter reading terminal equipment are taken as typical examples to design and realize quantum key shared storage, business security process application model; finally, based on the overall environment of quantum key distribution, the architecture design of multi-terminal quantum key application verification is implemented to verify the quantum key business application process.

IoT data marketplaces are being developed to help cities and communities create large scale IoT applications. Such data marketplaces let the IoT device owners sell their data to the application developers. Following this application development model, the application developers need not deploy their own IoT devices when developing IoT applications; instead, they can buy data from a data marketplace. In a marketplace-based IoT application, the application developers are making critical business and operation decisions using the data produced by seller's IoT devices. Under these circumstances, it is crucial to verify and validate the security of IoT devices.In this paper, we assess the security of IoT data marketplaces. In particular, we discuss what kind of vulnerabilities exist in IoT data marketplaces using the well-known STRIDE model, and present a security assessment and certification framework for IoT data marketplaces to help the device owners to examine the security vulnerabilities of their devices. Most importantly, our solution certifies the IoT devices when they connect to the data marketplace, which helps the application developers to make an informed decision when buying and consuming data from a data marketplace. To demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed approach, we have developed a proof-of-concept using I3 (Intelligent IoT Integrator), which is an open-source IoT data marketplace developed at the University of Southern California, and IoTcube, which is a vulnerability detection toolkit developed by researchers at Korea University. Through this work, we show that it is possible to increase the reliability of a IoT data marketplace while not damaging the convenience of the users.
Fernandez, J., Allen, B., Thulasiraman, P., Bingham, B..  2020.  Performance Study of the Robot Operating System 2 with QoS and Cyber Security Settings. 2020 IEEE International Systems Conference (SysCon). :1—6.
Throughout the Department of Defense, there are ongoing efforts to increase cybersecurity and improve data transfer in unmanned robotic systems (UxS). This paper explores the performance of the Robot Operating System (ROS) 2, which is built with the Data Distribution Service (DDS) standard as a middleware. Based on how quality of service (QoS) parameters are defined in the robotic middleware interface, it is possible to implement strict delivery requirements to different nodes on a dynamic nodal network with multiple unmanned systems connected. Through this research, different scenarios with varying QoS settings were implemented and compared to baseline values to help illustrate the impact of latency and throughput on data flow. DDS security settings were also enabled to help understand the cost of overhead and performance when secured data is compared to plaintext baseline values. Our experiments were performed using a basic ROS 2 network consisting of two nodes (one publisher and one subscriber). Our experiments showed a measurable latency and throughput change between different QoS profiles and security settings. We analyze the trends and tradeoffs associated with varying QoS and security settings. This paper provides performance data points that can be used to help future researchers and developers make informative choices when using ROS 2 for UxS.

Bao, Zhida, Zhao, Haojun.  2020.  Evaluation of Adversarial Attacks Based on DL in Communication Networks. 2020 7th International Conference on Dependable Systems and Their Applications (DSA). :251–252.
Deep Neural Networks (DNN) have strong capabilities of memories, feature identifications and automatic analyses, solving various complex problems. However, DNN classifiers have obvious fragility that adding several unnoticeable perturbations to the original examples will lead to the errors in the classifier identification. In the field of communications, the adversarial examples will greatly reduce the accuracy of the signal identification, causing great information security risks. Considering the adversarial examples pose a serious threat to the security of the DNN models, studying their generation mechanisms and testing their attack effects are critical to ensuring the information security of the communication networks. This paper will study the generation of the adversarial examples and the influences of the adversarial examples on the accuracy of the DNN-based communication signal identification. Meanwhile, this paper will study the influences of the adversarial examples under the white-box models and black-box models, and explore the adversarial attack influences of the factors such as perturbation levels and iterative steps. The insights of this study would be helpful for ensuring the security of information networks and designing robust DNN communication networks.
Kabir, H., Mohsin, M. H. Bin, Kantola, R..  2020.  Implementing a Security Policy Management for 5G Customer Edge Nodes. NOMS 2020 - 2020 IEEE/IFIP Network Operations and Management Symposium. :1—8.
The upcoming 5th generation (5G) mobile networks need to support ultra-reliable communication for business and life-critical applications. To do that 5G must offer higher degree of reliability than the current Internet, where networks are often subjected to Internet attacks, such as denial of service (DoS) and unwanted traffic. Besides improving the mitigation of Internet attacks, we propose that ultra-reliable mobile networks should only carry the expected user traffic to achieve a predictable level of reliability under malicious activity. To accomplish this, we introduce device-oriented communication security policies. Mobile networks have classically introduced a policy architecture that includes Policy and Charging Control (PCC) functions in LTE. However, in state of the art, this policy architecture is limited to QoS policies for end devices only. In this paper, we present experimental implementation of a Security Policy Management (SPM) system that accounts communication security interests of end devices. The paper also briefly presents the overall security architecture, where the policies set for devices or services in a network slice providing ultra-reliability, are enforced by a network edge node (via SPM) to only admit the expected traffic, by default treating the rest as unwanted traffic.

Artificial Intelligence also often referred to as machine learning is being labelled to as the future has been into light since more than a decade. Artificial Intelligence designated by the acronym AI has a vast scope of development and the developers have been working on with it constantly. AI is being associated with the existing objects in the world as well as with the ones that are about to arrive to improve them and make them more reliable. AI as it states in its name is intelligence, intelligence shown by the machines to work similar to humans and work on achieving the goals they are being provided with. Another application of AI could be to provide defenses against the present cyber threats, vehicle overrides etc. Also, AI might be intelligence but, in the end, it's still a bunch of codes, hence it is prone to be corrupted or misused by the world. To prevent the misuse of the technologies, it is necessary to deploy them with a sustainable defensive system as well. Obviously, there is going to be a default defense system but it is prone to be corrupted by the hackers or malfunctioning of the intelligence in certain scenarios which can result disastrous especially in case of Robotics. A proposal referred to as the “Guard Masking” has been offered in the following paper, to provide an alternative for securing Artificial Intelligence.
Fatehi, Nina, Shahhoseini, HadiShahriar.  2020.  A Hybrid Algorithm for Evaluating Trust in Online Social Networks. 2020 10th International Conference on Computer and Knowledge Engineering (ICCKE). :158—162.
The acceleration of extending popularity of Online Social Networks (OSNs) thanks to various services with which they provide people, is inevitable. This is why in OSNs security as a way to protect private data of users to be abused by unauthoritative people has a vital role to play. Trust evaluation is the security approach that has been utilized since the advent of OSNs. Graph-based approaches are among the most popular methods for trust evaluation. However, graph-based models need to employ limitations in the search process of finding trusted paths. This contributes to a reduction in trust accuracy. In this investigation, a learning-based model which with no limitation is able to find reliable users of any target user, is proposed. Experimental results depict 12% improvement in trust accuracy compares to models based on the graph-based approach.

The concept of federation in 5G and NFV networks aims to provide orchestration of services across multiple administrative domains. Edge robotics, as a field of robotics, implements the robot control on the network edge by relying on low-latency and reliable access connectivity. In this paper, we propose a solution that enables Edge robotics service to expand its service footprint or access coverage over multiple administrative domains. We propose application of Distributed ledger technologies (DLTs) for the federation procedures to enable private, secure and trusty interactions between undisclosed administrative domains. The solution is applied on a real-case Edge robotics experimental scenario. The results show that it takes around 19 seconds to deploy & federate a Edge robotics service in an external/anonymous domain without any service down-time.
Kanwal, Nadia, Asghar, Mamoona Naveed, Samar Ansari, Mohammad, Lee, Brian, Fleury, Martin, Herbst, Marco, Qiao, Yuansong.  2020.  Chain-of-Evidence in Secured Surveillance Videos using Steganography and Hashing. 2020 IEEE Intl Conf on Dependable, Autonomic and Secure Computing, Intl Conf on Pervasive Intelligence and Computing, Intl Conf on Cloud and Big Data Computing, Intl Conf on Cyber Science and Technology Congress (DASC/PiCom/CBDCom/CyberSciTech). :257–264.
Video sharing from closed-circuit television video recording or in social media interaction requires self-authentication for responsible and reliable data sharing. Similarly, surveillance video recording is a powerful method of deterring unlawful activities. A Solution-by-Design can be helpful in terms of making a captured video immutable, as such recordings cannot become a piece of evidence until proven to be unaltered. This paper presents a computationally inexpensive method of preserving a chain-of-evidence in surveillance videos using steganography and hashing. The method conforms to the data protection regulations which are increasingly adopted by governments, and is applicable to network edge storage. Security credentials are stored in a hardware wallet independently of the video capture device itself, while evidential information is stored within video frames themselves, independently of the content. The proposed method has turned out to not only preserve the integrity of the stored video data but also results in very limited degradation of the video data due to steganography. Despite the presence of steganographic information, video frames are still available for common image processing tasks such as tracking and classification.

Sikarwar, Himani, Das, Debasis.  2020.  An Efficient Lightweight Authentication and Batch Verification Scheme for Universal Internet of Vehicles (UIoV). 2020 International Wireless Communications and Mobile Computing (IWCMC). :1266—1271.
Ensuring secure transmission over the communication channel is a fundamental responsibility to achieve the implementation objective of universal internet of vehicles (UIoV) efficiently. Characteristics like highly dynamic topology and scalability of UIoV makes it more vulnerable to different types of privacy and security attacks. Considerable scope of improvement in terms of time complexity and performance can be observed within the existing schemes that address the privacy and security aspects of UIoV. In this paper, we present an improvised authentication and lightweight batch verification method for security and privacy in UIoV. The suggested method reduces the message loss rate, which occurred due to the response time delay by implementing some low-cost cryptographic operations like one-way hash function, concatenation, XOR, and bilinear map. Furthermore, the performance analysis proves that the proposed method is more reliable that reduces the computational delay and has a better performance in the delay-sensitive network as compared to the existing schemes. The experimental results are obtained by implementing the proposed scheme on a desktop-based configuration as well as Raspberry Pi 4.
Wang, Xiaodong, Jiao, Wenzhe, Yang, Huan, Guo, Lin, Ye, Xiaoxue, Guo, Yangming.  2020.  Algebraic Signature Based Data Possession Checking Method with Cloud Storage. 2020 11th International Conference on Prognostics and System Health Management (PHM-2020 Jinan). :11—16.
Cloud computing has been envisioned as a next generation information technology (IT) paradigm. The risk of losing data stored with any untrustworthy service provider is the key barrier to widespread uptake of cloud computing. This paper proposes an algebraic signature based remote data possession checking (RDPC) scheme to verify the integrity of the data stored in the cloud. This scheme integrates forward error-correcting codes to enhance the data possession guarantee, which can recover the data when a small amount of file has been deleted. The scheme allows verification without the need for the auditor to compare against the original data, which reduces the communication complexity dramatically. The storage complexity of cloud user is reduced to several bytes' information. Extensive security analysis and simulation show that the proposed scheme is highly provably secure. Finally, experiment results reveal that the computation performance is effective, and bounded by disk I/O.
