  • Who Watches the Watchmen: A Security-focused Review on Current
           State-of-the-art Techniques, Tools, and Methods for Systems and Binary
           Analysis on Modern Platforms
    • Abstract: Marcus Botacin, Paulo Lício De Geus, André grégio

      Malicious software, a threat users face on a daily basis, have evolved from simple bankers based on social engineering to advanced persistent threats. Recent research and discoveries reveal that malware developers have been using a wide range of anti-analysis and evasion techniques, in-memory attacks, and system subversion, including BIOS and hypervisors. In addition, code-reuse attacks like Returned Oriented Programming emerge as highly potential remote code execution threats. To counteract the broadness of malicious codes, distinct techniques and tools have been proposed, such as transparent malware tracers, system-wide debuggers, live forensics tools, and isolated execution rings. In this work, we present a survey on state-of-the-art techniques that detect, mitigate, and analyze the aforementioned attacks.

  • Auto-Scaling Web Applications in Clouds: A Taxonomy and Survey
    • Abstract: Chenhao Qu, Rodrigo N. Calheiros, Rajkumar Buyya

      Web application providers have been migrating their applications to cloud data centers, attracted by the emerging cloud computing paradigm. One of the appealing features of the cloud is elasticity. It allows cloud users to acquire or release computing resources on demand, which enables web application providers to automatically scale the resources provisioned to their applications without human intervention under a dynamic workload to minimize resource cost while satisfying Quality of Service (QoS) requirements. In this article, we comprehensively analyze the challenges that remain in auto-scaling web applications in clouds and review the developments in this field. We present a taxonomy of auto-scalers according to the identified challenges and key properties.

  • Sequence-Aware Recommender Systems
    • Abstract: Massimo Quadrana, Paolo Cremonesi, Dietmar Jannach

      Recommender systems are one of the most successful applications of data mining and machine-learning technology in practice. Academic research in the field is historically often based on the matrix completion problem formulation, where for each user-item-pair only one interaction (e.g., a rating) is considered. In many application domains, however, multiple user-item interactions of different types can be recorded over time. And, a number of recent works have shown that this information can be used to build richer individual user models and to discover additional behavioral patterns that can be leveraged in the recommendation process. In this work, we review existing works that consider information from such sequentially ordered user-item interaction logs in the recommendation process.

  • A Survey on Malicious Domains Detection through DNS Data Analysis
    • Abstract: Yury Zhauniarovich, Issa Khalil, Ting Yu, Marc Dacier

      Malicious domains are one of the major resources required for adversaries to run attacks over the Internet. Due to the important role of the Domain Name System (DNS), extensive research has been conducted to identify malicious domains based on their unique behavior reflected in different phases of the life cycle of DNS queries and responses. Existing approaches differ significantly in terms of intuitions, data analysis methods as well as evaluation methodologies. This warrants a thorough systematization of the approaches and a careful review of the advantages and limitations of every group. In this article, we perform such an analysis. To achieve this goal, we present the necessary background knowledge on DNS and malicious activities leveraging DNS.

  • Voice Disguise in Automatic Speaker Recognition
    • Abstract: Mireia FarrÚs

      Humans are able to identify other people’s voices even in voice disguise conditions. However, we are not immune to all voice changes when trying to identify people from voice. Likewise, automatic speaker recognition systems can also be deceived by voice imitation and other types of disguise. Taking into account the voice disguise classification into the combination of two different categories (deliberate/non-deliberate and electronic/non-electronic), this survey provides a literature review on the influence of voice disguise in the automatic speaker recognition task and the robustness of these systems to such voice changes.

  • Activity Recognition with Evolving Data Streams: A Review
    • Abstract: Zahraa S. Abdallah, Mohamed Medhat Gaber, Bala Srinivasan, Shonali Krishnaswamy

      Activity recognition aims to provide accurate and opportune information on people’s activities by leveraging sensory data available in today’s sensory rich environments. Nowadays, activity recognition has become an emerging field in the areas of pervasive and ubiquitous computing. A typical activity recognition technique processes data streams that evolve from sensing platforms such as mobile sensors, on body sensors, and/or ambient sensors. This article surveys the two overlapped areas of research of activity recognition and data stream mining. The perspective of this article is to review the adaptation capabilities of activity recognition techniques in streaming environment. Categories of techniques are identified based on different features in both data streams and activity recognition.

  • Graph Summarization Methods and Applications: A Survey
    • Abstract: Yike Liu, Tara Safavi, Abhilash Dighe, Danai Koutra

      While advances in computing resources have made processing enormous amounts of data possible, human ability to identify patterns in such data has not scaled accordingly. Efficient computational methods for condensing and simplifying data are thus becoming vital for extracting actionable insights. In particular, while data summarization techniques have been studied extensively, only recently has summarizing interconnected data, or graphs, become popular. This survey is a structured, comprehensive overview of the state-of-the-art methods for summarizing graph data. We first broach the motivation behind and the challenges of graph summarization. We then categorize summarization approaches by the type of graphs taken as input and further organize each category by core methodology.

  • Content-Based Music Information Retrieval (CB-MIR) and Its Applications
           toward the Music Industry: A Review
    • Abstract: Y. V. Srinivasa Murthy, Shashidhar G. Koolagudi

      A huge increase in the number of digital music tracks has created the necessity to develop an automated tool to extract the useful information from these tracks. As this information has to be extracted from the contents of the music, it is known as content-based music information retrieval (CB-MIR). In the past two decades, several research outcomes have been observed in the area of CB-MIR. There is a need to consolidate and critically analyze these research findings to evolve future research directions. In this survey article, various tasks of CB-MIR and their applications are critically reviewed. In particular, the article focuses on eight MIR-related tasks such as vocal/non-vocal segmentation, artist identification, genre classification, raga identification, query-by-humming, emotion recognition, instrument recognition, and music clip annotation.

  • A Survey on Routing in Anonymous Communication Protocols
    • Abstract: Fatemeh Shirazi, Milivoj Simeonovski, Muhammad Rizwan Asghar, Michael Backes, Claudia Diaz

      The Internet has undergone dramatic changes in the past 2 decades and now forms a global communication platform that billions of users rely on for their daily activities. While this transformation has brought tremendous benefits to society, it has also created new threats to online privacy, such as omnipotent governmental surveillance. As a result, public interest in systems for anonymous communication has drastically increased. In this work, we survey previous research on designing, developing, and deploying systems for anonymous communication. Our taxonomy and comparative assessment provide important insights about the differences between the existing classes of anonymous communication protocols.

  • Technical Privacy Metrics: A Systematic Survey
    • Abstract: Isabel Wagner, David Eckhoff

      The goal of privacy metrics is to measure the degree of privacy enjoyed by users in a system and the amount of protection offered by privacy-enhancing technologies. In this way, privacy metrics contribute to improving user privacy in the digital world. The diversity and complexity of privacy metrics in the literature make an informed choice of metrics challenging. As a result, instead of using existing metrics, new metrics are proposed frequently, and privacy studies are often incomparable. In this survey, we alleviate these problems by structuring the landscape of privacy metrics. To this end, we explain and discuss a selection of over 80 privacy metrics and introduce categorizations based on the aspect of privacy they measure, their required inputs, and the type of data that needs protection.

  • Scalable Graph Processing Frameworks: A Taxonomy and Open Challenges
    • Abstract: Safiollah Heidari, Yogesh Simmhan, Rodrigo N. Calheiros, Rajkumar Buyya

      The world is becoming a more conjunct place and the number of data sources such as social networks, online transactions, web search engines, and mobile devices is increasing even more than had been predicted. A large percentage of this growing dataset exists in the form of linked data, more generally, graphs, and of unprecedented sizes. While today's data from social networks contain hundreds of millions of nodes connected by billions of edges, inter-connected data from globally distributed sensors that forms the Internet of Things can cause this to grow exponentially larger. Although analyzing these large graphs is critical for the companies and governments that own them, big data tools designed for text and tuple analysis such as MapReduce cannot process them efficiently.

  • A Survey and Taxonomy of Self-Aware and Self-Adaptive Cloud Autoscaling
    • Abstract: Tao Chen, Rami Bahsoon, Xin Yao

      Autoscaling system can reconfigure cloud-based services and applications, through various configurations of cloud software and provisions of hardware resources, to adapt to the changing environment at runtime. Such a behavior offers the foundation for achieving elasticity in a modern cloud computing paradigm. Given the dynamic and uncertain nature of the shared cloud infrastructure, the cloud autoscaling system has been engineered as one of the most complex, sophisticated, and intelligent artifacts created by humans, aiming to achieve self-aware, self-adaptive, and dependable runtime scaling. Yet the existing Self-aware and Self-adaptive Cloud Autoscaling System (SSCAS) is not at a state where it can be reliably exploited in the cloud.

  • A Survey on Multidimensional Scaling
    • Abstract: Nasir Saeed, Haewoon Nam, Mian Imtiaz Ul Haq, Dost Bhatti Muhammad Saqib

      This survey presents multidimensional scaling (MDS) methods and their applications in real world. MDS is an exploratory and multivariate data analysis technique becoming more and more popular. MDS is one of the multivariate data analysis techniques, which tries to represent the higher dimensional data into lower space. The input data for MDS analysis is measured by the dissimilarity or similarity of the objects under observation. Once the MDS technique is applied to the measured dissimilarity or similarity, MDS results in a spatial map. In the spatial map, the dissimilar objects are far apart while objects which are similar are placed close to each other.

      Over the past decades, researchers have been proposing different Intrusion Detection approaches to deal with the increasing number and complexity of threats for computer systems. In this context, Random Forest models have been providing a notable performance on their applications in the realm of the behaviour-based Intrusion Detection Systems. Specificities of the Random Forest model are used to provide classification, feature selection, and proximity metrics. This work provides a comprehensive review of the general basic concepts related to Intrusion Detection Systems, including taxonomies, attacks, data collection, modelling, evaluation metrics, and commonly used methods. It also provides a survey of Random Forest based methods applied in this context, considering the particularities involved in these models.

  • Co-Simulation: A Survey
    • Abstract: Cláudio Gomes, Casper Thule, David Broman, Peter Gorm Larsen, Hans Vangheluwe

      Modeling and simulation techniques are today extensively used both in industry and science. Parts of larger systems are, however, typically modeled and simulated by different techniques, tools, and algorithms. In addition, experts from different disciplines use various modeling and simulation techniques. Both these facts make it difficult to study coupled heterogeneous systems. Co-simulation is an emerging enabling technique, where global simulation of a coupled system can be achieved by composing the simulations of its parts. Due to its potential and interdisciplinary nature, co-simulation is being studied in different disciplines but with limited sharing of findings. In this survey, we study and survey the state-of-the-art techniques for co-simulation, with the goal of enhancing future research and highlighting the main challenges.

  • A Survey of Symbolic Execution Techniques
    • Abstract: Roberto Baldoni, Emilio Coppa, Daniele Cono D’elia, Camil Demetrescu, Irene Finocchi

      Many security and software testing applications require checking whether certain properties of a program hold for any possible usage scenario. For instance, a tool for identifying software vulnerabilities may need to rule out the existence of any backdoor to bypass a program’s authentication. One approach would be to test the program using different, possibly random inputs. As the backdoor may only be hit for very specific program workloads, automated exploration of the space of possible inputs is of the essence. Symbolic execution provides an elegant solution to the problem, by systematically exploring many possible execution paths at the same time without necessarily requiring concrete inputs.

  • A Survey of Network Traffic Anonymisation Techniques and Implementations
    • Abstract: Niels Van Dijkhuizen, Jeroen Van Der Ham

      Many networking research activities are dependent on the availability of network captures. Even outside academic research, there is a need for sharing network captures to cooperate on threat assessments or for debugging. However, most network captures cannot be shared due to privacy concerns. Anonymisation of network captures has been a subject of research for quite some time, and many different techniques exist. In this article, we present an overview of the currently available techniques and implementations for network capture anonymisation. There have been many advances in the understanding of anonymisation and cryptographic methods, which have changed the perspective on the effectiveness of many anonymisation techniques.

  • Provenance Analytics for Workflow-Based Computational Experiments: A
    • Abstract: Wellington Oliveira, Daniel De Oliveira, Vanessa Braganholo

      Until not long ago, manually capturing and storing provenance from scientific experiments were constant concerns for scientists. With the advent of computational experiments (modeled as scientific workflows) and Scientific Workflow Management Systems, produced and consumed data, as well as the provenance of a given experiment, are automatically managed, so provenance capturing and storing in such a context is no longer a major concern. Similarly to several existing big data problems, the bottom line is now on how to analyze the large amounts of provenance data generated by workflow executions and how to be able to extract useful knowledge of this data.

  • A Taxonomy of Software-Defined Networking (SDN)-Enabled Cloud Computing
    • Abstract: Jungmin Son, Rajkumar Buyya

      Software-Defined Networking (SDN) opened up new opportunities in networking with its concept of the segregated control plane from the data-forwarding hardware, which enables the network to be programmable, adjustable, and reconfigurable dynamically. These characteristics can bring numerous benefits to cloud computing, where dynamic changes and reconfiguration are necessary with its on-demand usage pattern. Although researchers have studied utilizing SDN in cloud computing, gaps still exist and need to be explored further. In this article, we propose a taxonomy to depict different aspects of SDN-enabled cloud computing and explain each element in details. The detailed survey of studies utilizing SDN for cloud computing is presented with focus on data center power optimization, traffic engineering, network virtualization, and security.

  • Continuous Spatial Query Processing: A Survey of Safe Region Based
    • Abstract: Jianzhong Qi, Rui Zhang, Christian S. Jensen, Kotagiri Ramamohanarao, Jiayuan HE

      In the past decade, positioning system-enabled devices such as smartphones have become most prevalent. This functionality brings the increasing popularity of location-based services in business as well as daily applications such as navigation, targeted advertising, and location-based social networking. Continuous spatial queries serve as a building block for location-based services. As an example, an Uber driver may want to be kept aware of the nearest customers or service stations. Continuous spatial queries require updates to the query result as the query or data objects are moving. This poses challenges to the query efficiency, which is crucial to the user experience of a service.

  • Deep Learning for Biometrics: A Survey
    • Abstract: Kalaivani Sundararajan, Damon L. Woodard

      In the recent past, deep learning methods have demonstrated remarkable success for supervised learning tasks in multiple domains including computer vision, natural language processing, and speech processing. In this article, we investigate the impact of deep learning in the field of biometrics, given its success in other domains. Since biometrics deals with identifying people by using their characteristics, it primarily involves supervised learning and can leverage the success of deep learning in other related domains. In this article, we survey 100 different approaches that explore deep learning for recognizing individuals using various biometric modalities. We find that most deep learning research in biometrics has been focused on face and speaker recognition.

  • Current and Future Trends in Mobile Device Forensics: A Survey
    • Abstract: Konstantia Barmpatsalou, Tiago Cruz, Edmundo Monteiro, Paulo Simoes

      Contemporary mobile devices are the result of an evolution process, during which computational and networking capabilities have been continuously pushed to keep pace with the constantly growing workload requirements. This has allowed devices such as smartphones, tablets, and personal digital assistants to perform increasingly complex tasks, up to the point of efficiently replacing traditional options such as desktop computers and notebooks. However, due to their portability and size, these devices are more prone to theft, to become compromised, or to be exploited for attacks and other malicious activity. The need for investigation of the aforementioned incidents resulted in the creation of the Mobile Forensics (MF) discipline.
