  • Algorithmic node classification in AND/OR mobile workflow graph
    • Authors: Ihtisham Ali, Susmit Bagchi
      Pages: 143 - 168
      Abstract: The data-intensive applications employ complex workflow graph models in dynamic networks having heterogeneity and mobility of nodes, which result in enhanced end-to-end delay in executions. The current workflow models lack structural stability for visualising a complex workflow graph. This paper proposes a hybrid AND/OR mobile workflow graph (MWG) model to visualise a fully conditioned complex workflow graph containing mobile nodes. This paper proposes nodes validity detection (NVD) algorithm for classifying the total number of nodes in the AND/OR MWG. Furthermore, nodes criticality detection (NCD) algorithm is also proposed to identify the set of critical nodes in the AND/OR MWG aiming to enable efficient analysing, mapping and scheduling of complex workflow graphs in a dynamic network environment. The algorithms are implemented and evaluated on Java platform and, the regression analysis is performed to project the algorithmic performances. A detailed comparative analysis with other works is presented in this paper.

  • An integrated incentive and trust-based optimal path identification in ad
           hoc on-demand multipath distance vector routing for MANET
    • Authors: Abrar Omar Alkhamisi, Seyed M. Buhari, George Tsaramirsis, Mohammed Basheri
      Pages: 169 - 184
      Abstract: A Mobile Ad hoc Network (MANET) can work well only when the mobile nodes behave cooperatively in packet routing. To reduce the hazards from malicious nodes and enhance the security of the network, this paper extends an Ad hoc On-Demand Multipath Distance Vector (AOMDV) routing protocol, named as an Integrated Incentive and Trust-based optimal path identification in AOMDV (IIT-AOMDV) for MANET. The proposed IIT-AOMDV routing protocol integrates an Intrusion Detection System (IDS) with the Bayesian Network (BN) based trust and payment model. The IDS utilises the empirical first-and second-hand trust information of BN, and it underpins the cuckoo search algorithm to map the QoS and trust value into a single fitness metric, tuned according to the presence of malicious nodes. The simulation results show that the IIT-AOMDV improves the detection accuracy and throughput by 20% and 16.6%, respectively, more than that of existing AOMDV integrated with the IDS (AID).

  • A configurable and executable model of Spark Streaming on Apache YARN
    • Authors: Jia-Chun Lin, Ming-Chang Lee, Ingrid Chieh Yu, Einar Broch Johnsen
      Pages: 185 - 195
      Abstract: Streams of data are produced today at an unprecedented scale. Efficient and stable processing of these streams requires a careful interplay between the parameters of the streaming application and of the underlying stream processing framework. Today, finding these parameters happens by trial and error on the complex, deployed framework. This paper shows that high-level models can help to determine these parameters by predicting and comparing the performance of streaming applications running on stream processing frameworks with different configurations. To demonstrate this approach, this paper considers Spark Streaming, a widely used framework to leverage data streams on the fly and provide real-time stream processing. Technically, we develop a configurable and executable model to simulate both the streaming applications and the underlying Spark stream processing framework. Furthermore, we model the deployment of Spark Streaming on Apache YARN, which is a popular open-source distributed software framework for big data processing. We show that the developed model provides a satisfactory accuracy for predicting performance by means of empirical validation.

  • Models for hyper-converged cloud computing infrastructures planning
    • Authors: Carlos Melo, Jamilson Dantas, Paulo Maciel, Danilo Mendonça Oliveira, Jean Araujo, Rubens Matos, Iure Fé
      Pages: 196 - 208
      Abstract: The Data Centre concept has evolved, mainly due to the need to reduce expenses with the required physical space to store, provide and maintain large computational infrastructures. The Software-Defined Data Centre (SDDC) is a result of this evolution. Through SDDC, any service can be hosted by virtualising more reliable and easier-to-keep hardware resources. Nowadays, many services and resources can be provided in a single rack, or even a single machine, with similar availability, considering the deployment costs of silo-based environments. One of the ways to apply the SDDC into a data centre is through hyper-convergence. Among the main contributions of this paper are the behavioural models developed for availability and capacity-oriented availability evaluation of silo-based, converged and hyper-converged cloud computing infrastructures. The obtained results may help stakeholders to select between converged and hyper-converged environments, due to their similar availability but with the particularity of having lower deployment costs.

  • Architecture for diversity in the implementation of dependable and secure
           services using the state machine replication approach
    • Authors: Caio Yuri Da Silva Costa, Eduardo Alchieri
      Pages: 209 - 220
      Abstract: The dependability and security properties of a system could be impaired by a failure or by an opponent that exploits its vulnerabilities. State Machine Replication (SMR) is a technique widely used to implement fault-tolerant systems, mitigating these risks. Unfortunately, the proposed SMR solutions do not implement diversity and all replicas execute the same software. Consequently, the same attack or software bug could compromise the whole system. This work proposes an architecture to allow diversity in the implementation of dependable and secure services using the SMR approach. The goal is not to implement different versions of a SMR library, but to use an underlying SMR library and provide means to implement and execute service replicas (the application code) in different programming languages. The main problems addressed are twofold: communication among different languages; and data representation. The proposed architecture was integrated in BFT-SMaRt and a set of experiments showed its practical feasibility.

  • Target exploration by Nomadic Lévy walk on unit disk graphs
    • Authors: Koichiro Sugihara, Naohiro Hayashibara
      Pages: 221 - 229
      Abstract: Lévy walk has attracted attention for its search efficiency. Homesick Lévy walk is a family of random walks whose encounter probability of one another is similar to the one of human behaviour. However, its homing behaviour limits the search area of each agent. In this paper, we propose a variant of Homesick Lévy walk called Nomadic Lévy walk and analyse the behaviour of the algorithm regarding the cover ratio on unit disk graphs. We also show the comparison of Nomadic Lévy walk and Homesick Lévy walk regarding the target search problem. Our simulation results indicate that the proposed algorithm is significantly efficient for sparse target detection on unit disk graphs compared to Homesick Lévy walk, and it also improves the cover ratio. Moreover, we analyse the impact of the movement of the sink (home position) on the efficiency of the target exploration.

      Abstract: Network Functions Virtualisation (NFV) presents several advantages over traditional network architectures, such as flexibility, security, and reduced CAPEX/OPEX. In traditional middleboxes, network functions are usually executed on specialised hardware (e.g., firewall, DPI). Virtual Network Functions (VNFs) on the other hand, are executed on commodity hardware, employing Software Defined Networking (SDN) technologies (e.g., OpenFlow, P4). Although platforms for prototyping NFV environments have emerged in recent years, they still present limitations that hinder the evaluation of NFV scenarios such as fog computing and heterogeneous networks. In this work, we present NIEP: a platform for designing and testing NFV-based infrastructures and VNFs. NIEP consists of a network emulator and a platform for Click-based VNFs development. NIEP provides a complete NFV emulation environment, allowing network operators to test their solutions in a controlled scenario prior to deployment in production networks.

  • Towards a secure and lightweight network function virtualisation
           environment
    • Authors: Marco De Benedictis, Antonio Lioy, Paolo Smiraglia
      Pages: 243 - 252
      Abstract: Cloud computing has deeply affected the structure of modern ICT infrastructures. It represents an enabling technology for novel paradigms such as Network Function Virtualisation (NFV), which proposes the virtualisation of network functions to enhance the flexibility of networks and to reduce the costs of infrastructure management. Besides potential benefits, NFV inherits the limitations of traditional virtualisation where the isolation of resources comes at the cost of a performance overhead. Lightweight forms of virtualisation, like containers, aim to mitigate this limitation. Furthermore, they allow the agile composition of complex services. These characteristics make containers a suitable technology for NFV environment. A major concern towards the exploitation of containers is security. Since containers provide less isolation than virtual machines, they can expose the whole host to vulnerabilities. In this work, we investigate container-related threats and propose a secure design for a Virtual Network Function deployed in a lightweight NFV environment.

  • A spatial access method approach to continuous k-nearest neighbour
           processing for location-based services
    • Authors: Marco De Benedictis, Antonio Lioy, Paolo Smiraglia
      Pages: 253 - 266
      Abstract: In this paper, two strategies for handling continuous k-nearest neighbour queries for location-based services are proposed. CKNN1 and CKNN2 utilise a validity (i.e., safe) region approach for minimising the number of query requests that need to be send to the server. They also use a two-dimensional spatial access method for both validity region selection and in-structure searching. The latter feature ensures that new searches for a validity region are not required to begin from the root. An evaluation and comparison of both strategies is performed against repeated nearest neighbour search. Both random and exponentially distributed point sets are utilised. Results show that both approaches achieve significant performance gains, especially with respect to reducing the number of queries that must be sent from the client to the server.

  • A methodology for automated penetration testing of cloud applications
    • Authors: Valentina Casola, Alessandra De Benedictis, Massimiliano Rak, Umberto Villano
      Pages: 267 - 277
      Abstract: Security assessment is a very time- and money-consuming activity. It needs specialised security skills and, furthermore, it is not fully integrated into the software development life-cycle. One of the best solutions for the security testing of an application relies on the use of penetration testing techniques. Unfortunately, penetration testing is a typically human-driven procedure that requires a deep knowledge of the possible attacks to carry out and of the hacking tools that can be used to launch the tests. In this paper, we present a methodology that enables the automation of penetration testing techniques based on both application-level models, used to represent the application architecture and its security properties in terms of applicable threats, vulnerabilities and weaknesses, and on system-level models, adopted to automatically generate and execute the penetration testing activities. The proposed methodology can be easily integrated into a continuous integration development process and aid software developers in evaluating security.

  • Preferential charging for government authorised emergency electric
           vehicles
    • Authors: Raziq Yaqub, Fahd Ali Shifa, Muhammad Fasih Uddin Butt
      Pages: 278 - 289
      Abstract: The proliferation of Electric Vehicles (EVs) is exponential. However, the power grid is not able to provide simultaneous charging of several EVs due to limited power production capabilities and old distribution infrastructure. Scheduled charging is one of the most advocated solutions. However, it is not viable for emergency vehicles. This paper proposes to provide priority charging service for government authorised emergency EVs. For enablement of this proposal, a complete solution that includes architecture, as well as the protocols suite is suggested. To realise such a service, the paper suggests a major functional entity called a Priority Charging Server, i.e. a database server where authorised emergency EVs' IDs are registered, and their record is maintained. The paper also proposes modifications in the IEC15118 and IEC 61850 protocol suites. These protocols provide communication between vehicle and grid. The solution also inculcates roaming as well as non-roaming scenarios, i.e. a priority charging request may be originated by an authorised emergency EV from a Home Utility Network, as well as Visiting Utility Network. The paper is concluded with a MATLAB-based proof-of-concept simulation.
