  • Fuzzy evaluation mechanism of trust chain under embedded trusted computing
    • Authors: Sartaj Chaudhary, Ajoy Kumar Dey
      Pages: 127 - 145
      Abstract: This paper proposes a trust chain evaluation mechanism based on fuzzy theory under embedded trusted computing. Firstly, this method described the trusted computing, the trusted computing platform, embedded system, which showed the important position of the trust chain in dependable computing. Then, in the process of the entity evaluation of trust chain, according to the influencing factors of trust chain in the trusted computing, considering the indirect trust degree, completed the establishment of evaluation method of trusted computing model based on the fuzzy set theory. Finally, combined the fuzzy logic inference with the trust transitivity, we proposed a trust chain evaluation mechanism based on similarity, and introduced the time decay function and adaptive weight coefficient to give the trust updating model. Simulation experiment shows that the proposed method can effectively improve the reliability of trust chain evaluation in embedded trusted computing, which has good application value.

  • A fast dynamic programming algorithm to a varied capacity problem in
           vehicle routing
    • Authors: Pengle Zhang, Yajie Dou
      Pages: 146 - 167
      Abstract: As a typical combinational optimisation problem, the researches on vehicle routing problem (VRP) mostly focus on the case when vehicle loading capability is certain. In fact, the vehicle loading capability often changes with multi-type vehicles, varying goods size and customer's requirement alter. Thus, a varied capacity vehicle routing problem (VCVRP) is introduced and a fast dynamic programming algorithm is presented based on the K-step best fit deceasing and minimum spanning tree methods, the algorithms can serve as an approximate decoupling between the goods packing problem and router selection problem in VCVRP. Besides, the theoretical analysis on the upper bound of vehicle trip and local minimisation based on short-path priority principle are carried out theoretically. Finally, an example about varied capacity vehicle logistics transportation task is given with quality and performance analysis on different parameters and scales, to illustrate the feasibilities and advantages of the proposed algorithm.

  • Organisational management: a study of a company of distribution
           services
    • Authors: Leonardo Ensslin, Sandra Rolim Ensslin, Michele Gabriel, Leonardo Corrêa Chaves, Marcus Vinicius Andrade De Lima
      Pages: 168 - 194
      Abstract: The current trend of focusing on core activities created opportunities for some companies to act as subcontractors. This is the case for companies that handle the distribution of food products. Beyond the concern for speedy delivery, they must take into account the perishable nature of the products if they are to meet the expectations of their customers. The objective of this research, characterised as exploratory and descriptive, is to build a model to support the management of a company to meet the needs of food distribution, taking into account regional peculiarities, customers, and distribution services. To achieve this objective, we used the methodology of multicriteria decision support - constructivist (MCDA-C). The model allowed us to identify opportunities for improvement to the following aspects: minimum profitable load delivered; control of the localisation of products, maintenance of trucks, and accommodation of the products on the truck, which led to an increase in performance from 49 to 59 points using the proposed model.
      Keywords: decision support; multicriteria analysis; multicriteria decision support - constructivist; MCDA-C; performance evaluation; distribution management services

  • An initiative network defence strategy based on game theory
    • Authors: Qiang Zhao, Jun Dong
      Pages: 195 - 209
      Abstract: Traditional network safety evaluation only takes into account the attackers' measures to system threat and it lacks initiative defence strategies. To provide an overall and comprehensive analysis on security status of the network, this paper proposes an initiative network system defence strategy based on game theory. The scheme considers possible attack strategies and defence strategies to establish game strategy graph according to the dependency relationship among host vulnerabilities of network. Further, it puts forward a attack-defence game model with double roles and non-cooperation, defining payoff function on both sides. Then the model designs corresponding defence strategy search algorithm to provide a novel method to reflect real-time and scientific security situation evaluation intuitively. It computes the benefits of both sides to find a balance point and provides the optimal defence measure of defenders. The simulation results show that our strategy is more in line with the actual situation than traditional methods with unilateral evaluation on single side. The model can also rapidly respond to network system and it is feasible to improve the network security defence status.

  • Task scheduling optimisation algorithm based on load balance under the
           cloud computing environment
    • Authors: Qiang Zhao, Jun Dong
      Pages: 210 - 222
      Abstract: In order to achieve an optimal task scheduling scheme with the constraint of load balance in cloud computing platform. We utilise the CloudSim simulator to construct the cloud computing environment, and CloudSim contains three components: 1) CloudSim core simulation engine; 2) CloudSim basic structure; 3) user codes. Afterwards, we propose a novel load balancing oriented task scheduling optimisation algorithm based on genetic algorithm, and task assignment results are obtained through analysing gene values of chromosomes. In order to ensure convergence rate in genetic algorithm, we design the fitness function by integrating computation time and computation cost together. Furthermore, we design adaptive crossover and mutation operations to promote the search efficiency. Finally, we conduct an experiment to demonstrate the performance of the proposed algorithm. The experimental results show that the proposed algorithm can achieve the goal of high level of load balance with lower calculation time and cost.
