  • k-hop neighbour knowledge-based clustering in CRN under
           opportunistic channel access
    • Authors: Rajiv Misra, Ram Narayan Yadav
      Pages: 369 - 393
      Abstract: Cognitive radio networks (CRNs) enables cognitive users (CUs) to use available spectrum of primary users (PUs) using innovative techniques. On appearance of PUs, the available channel of CUs at different position may have different available channels which changes dynamically over time. Due to temporal and spatial variations of opportunistic channel availability, to ensure connectivity and robustness in CRN is of great research interests. We have proposed novel approach of <i>k</i>-hop neighbour knowledge-based clustering algorithm which guarantees robustness in CRN and converges in O(<i>n</i><SUP align="right">2</SUP><i>m</i>), for <i>n</i> CUs and <i>m</i> clusters in the network. We have evaluated for varying 3-hop, 4-hop, … <i>k</i>-hop through simulation which shows that our scheme achieves 25%-30% more numbers of outward common channels and outperforms in terms of inner common channel index, outward common channel index, number of isolated nodes, throughput and frequency of route discovery compared to the competitive approaches.

  • Load balanced routing scheme for MANETs with power and delay optimisation
    • Authors: Mamata Rath, Bibudhendu Pati, Binod Kumar Pattanayak, Chhabi Rani Panigrahi, Joy Lal Sarkar
      Pages: 394 - 405
      Abstract: Innovative research on mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) and their wide applications have created a revolution of today's wireless communication. Efficient routing for dynamically changing network and unstable wireless medium is a challenging task. The conventional AODV routing protocol works on selecting the hop count-based shortest path while delivering the packet towards the destination. This often creates uneven load distribution among network nodes. As a result, any central node hopelessly carries heavier loads that significantly deplete node energy with higher packet loss and delay in processing. In this work, a protocol based on power and delay named as power and delay optimised AODV (PDO-AODV) has been presented which is based on load balanced routing strategy in AODV that improves the quality of service for MANETs. The proposed approach takes neighbouring node's power and delay into consideration for selecting load balanced path. Simulation results manifest that the proposed PDO-AODV achieves improved performance as compared to existing AODV routing protocol in terms of packet drop, network delay, throughput, and retransmission attempts.

  • Compiling, verifying and simulating dynamic software architectures using
           ANTLR and coloured-ADL
    • Authors: Rabah Mokhtari, Allaoua Chaoui
      Pages: 406 - 433
      Abstract: The concept of reconfigurable and dynamic software architecture (DSA) occupies today an important place in the field of software engineering. As result, several architecture description languages (ADLs) and approaches have been proposed for describing DSA in the highest level of abstraction. However, most of these works present theoretical solutions without giving an idea on the execution of final systems at run time. In this paper, we propose a new DSA called coloured software architecture (CSA) based on two concepts coloured operation and coloured connector. Then, we propose a new ADL called coloured-ADL and implement a compiling, verification and simulation tool dedicated to CSA. The simulation of system instances, derived from a CSA, is mainly used to explain coloured-ADL and evaluate the reliability of the simulated system. On the other hand, the verification is focused on checking a new defined safety property called architectural stack overflow (ASO). A safe CSA should be free of ASO violation property. To check a CSA, the verification uses also finite state processes (FSP) and labelled transition state (LTS) to expect this kind of property. We illustrate our propositions through two case studies from the literature.

  • A fuzzy-based mechanism for delay window adjustment to improve TCP
           performance in wireless multi-hop networks
    • Authors: Mohammad Nassiri, Mojtaba Mehdizadeh
      Pages: 434 - 447
      Abstract: TCP protocol was initially designed for wired networks to guarantee reliable data transfer. In wired networks, TCP assumes congestion if data packets are dropped. However, this assumption does not hold when the end-to-end path includes wireless links, where, high bit error rate (BER), shared medium and dynamic nature of the wireless channel may cause packet loss. This results in a severe degrade in performance of standard TCP in wireless networks. On the other hand, TCP cannot be changed fundamentally due to the large base of installation in the wired network. Delayed-ACK generation at the TCP receiver has been proposed to mitigate collision rate within wireless network. However, choosing appropriate delayed window size is an important issue. In this article, we propose a new delayed-ACK approach based on a fuzzy controller to improve TCP performance in wireless networks. The major advantage of our mechanism is reducing the overhead and the collision rate in multi-hop wireless networks. We also compare our proposal with some of well-known studies. Simulations results confirm good performance of our mechanism.

  • An effective resource management in cloud computing
    • Authors: P. Mohamed Shameem, Nimmy Johnson, R.S. Shaji, E. Arun
      Pages: 448 - 464
      Abstract: Provision of resources must be provided such that all resources are made available to user's request in efficient manner to satisfy their needs. Resource allocation in virtualised environment should provide elasticity. When the workload increases, existing approaches cannot respond to the growing performance in an effective way. This may lead to the violation of service level agreement (SLA) which will decrease the quality of service (QoS). Existing methods cannot take an accurate decision on the allocation of resources in an optimal way and are not predictive in nature. Before any problems occur, they cannot take a precaution on resource management. Therefore, a framework is used to ensure effective resource management. This framework uses rough set algorithm in order to make an accurate decision on the allocation of resources. Variation in workloads is adapted by considering new parameters like type of application, garbage processing policy and internal application resources.

  • Route recommendation system to support multiple destinations and multiple
           routes to minimise road congestion
    • Authors: Chayanon Sub-r-pa, Goutam Chakraborty, Bhabani P. Sinha
      Pages: 465 - 481
      Abstract: Multiple destinations routing is important for car navigation when a user requests for a service instead of a specific destination. Existing navigation systems can suggest k shortest routes to a destination, where the cost is defined in terms of distance, travel time, or other parameter. In case of a special event like a festival or an unforeseen situation such as tsunami, a large number of users would require the same service, e.g., a parking lot or a safe shelter, not a specific destination. When service points are known, the proposed algorithm first computes multiple near-optimal routes to those destinations, and then optimally distributes the traffic along those routes based on respective costs. This reduces congestion both on road network as well as at service points. Our proposed algorithm has been simulated with real-life traffic data on real city road network, showing encouraging results compared to conventional routing.

  • An enhanced anonymous remote user authentication scheme using smart card
           in insecure communication channel
    • Authors: Subhasish Banerjee, Manash Pratim Dutta, Chandan Tilak Bhunia
      Pages: 482 - 499
      Abstract: To prove the legitimacy among the users and to ensure the secure communication over the insecure network the remote user authentication using smart card and password is one of the simplest and efficient mechanisms. In this context, Kumari et al. proposed an improved remote user authentication scheme and claimed, their scheme is more user friendly, can resist various possible attacks at very low cost than existing ones. Unfortunately, during our research we have found this is not the case, their scheme cannot sustain against all those attacks for which the scheme was meant. In this paper, we have pointed out that their scheme not only can suffer from user anonymity problem but also fails to resist against offline password guessing attack, server masquerading attack and can create the risk of session key agreement too. Then, while retaining the original merits of their scheme we propose an efficient and modified scheme to overcome from aforesaid weaknesses, but at low computational cost.
