  • Guest Editor's Introduction: Special Section on Fog/Edge Computing
           and Services
    • Authors: Weisong Shi;Tao Zhang;Qun Li;
      Pages: 669 - 670
      Abstract: The papers in this special section focus on fog computing and services. The emerging Internet of Things (IoT) and rich cloud services have helped create the need for fog computing (also known as edge computing), in which data processing occurs in part at the network edge or anywhere along the cloud-to-endpoint continuum that can best meet user requirements, rather than completely in a relatively small number of massive clouds. Fog computing could address latency concerns, devices’ limited processing and storage capabilities and battery life, network bandwidth constraints and costs, and many security and privacy concerns that arise from the emerging IoT.

  • Server Placement and Selection for Edge Computing in the ePC
    • Authors: Ilija Hadžić;Yoshihisa Abe;Hans Christian Woithe;
      Pages: 671 - 684
      Abstract: Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) has received much attention from the research community in recent years. A significant part of the published work has studied the telecom-centric MEC architecture, which assumes that the computing resource is located at the edge of the mobile access network (e.g., the Evolved Packet Core or ePC), typically at the first aggregation level. Many of these studies make a silent assumption that the latency at this stage of the network is negligible. We show not only that this assumption is false, but that in some common cases the latency of the first aggregation stage dominates the end-to-end latency. We further show that common probing metrics can easily fail when used to select the service site for an application and discuss possible improvements to server-selection reliability.

  • Adaptive Wireless Video Streaming Based on Edge Computing: Opportunities
           and Approaches
    • Authors: Desheng Wang;Yanrong Peng;Xiaoqiang Ma;Wenting Ding;Hongbo Jiang;Fei Chen;Jiangchuan Liu;
      Pages: 685 - 697
      Abstract: Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP (DASH) has been widely adopted to deal with such user diversity as network conditions and device capabilities. In DASH systems, the computation-intensive transcoding is the key technology to enable video rate adaptation, and cloud has become a preferred solution for massive video transcoding. Yet the cloud-based solution has the following two drawbacks. First, a video stream now has multiple versions after transcoding, which increases the network traffic traversing the core network. Second, the transcoding strategy is normally fixed and thus is not flexible to adapt to the dynamic change of viewers. Considering that mobile users, who normally experience dynamic network conditions from time to time, have occupied a very large portion of the total users, adaptive wireless transcoding is of great importance. To this end, we propose an adaptive wireless video transcoding framework based on the emerging edge computing paradigm by deploying edge transcoding servers close to base stations. With this design, the core network only needs to send the source video stream to the edge transcoding server rather than one stream for each viewer, and thus the network traffic across the core network is significantly reduced. Meanwhile, our edge transcoding server cooperates with the base station to transcode videos at a finer granularity according to the obtained users' channel conditions, which smartly adjusts the transcoding strategy to tackle with time-varying wireless channels. In order to improve the bandwidth utilization, we also develop efficient bandwidth adjustment algorithms that adaptively allocate the spectrum resources to individual mobile users. We validate the effectiveness of our proposed edge computing based framework through extensive simulations, which confirm the superiority of our framework.

  • Latency-Driven Fog Cooperation Approach in Fog Radio Access Networks
    • Authors: Te-Chuan Chiu;Ai-Chun Pang;Wei-Ho Chung;Junshan Zhang;
      Pages: 698 - 711
      Abstract: Fog computing, evolves from the cloud and migrates the computing to the edge, is a promising solution to meet the increasing demand for ultra-low latency services in wireless networks. Via the forward-looking perspective, we advocate a Fog Radio Access Network (F-RAN) model, which leverages the existing infrastructure such as small cells with limited computing power, to achieve the ultra-low latency by joint edge computing and near-range communications across multiple Fog groups. We formulate the low latency design as an NP-hard optimization problem, which demonstrates the tradeoff between communication and computing in the time domain. Due to each F-RAN node's potential as each user's master F-RAN node with 1) different self computing power; and 2) different cooperative power of assisted F-RAN nodes, we first tackle globally optimized master F-RAN node selection for each user and propose a latency-driven cooperative Fog algorithm with dynamic programming solution for simultaneous selection of the F-RAN nodes to serve proper heterogeneous Fog resource allocation for multi-Fog groups. Considering the limited heterogeneous Fog resources shared among all users, we propose the one-for-all strategy for every user putting him/herself into others' shoes and reaching a “win-win” outcome. The numerical results show that the low latency services can be accomplished by F-RAN via latency-driven Fog cooperation approach.

  • Migration Modeling and Learning Algorithms for Containers in Fog Computing
    • Authors: Zhiqing Tang;Xiaojie Zhou;Fuming Zhang;Weijia Jia;Wei Zhao;
      Pages: 712 - 725
      Abstract: Fog Computing (FC) is a flexible architecture to support distributed domain-specific applications with cloud-like quality of service. However, current FC still lacks the mobility support mechanism when facing many mobile users with diversified application quality requirements. Such mobility support mechanism can be critical such as in the industrial internet where human, products, and devices are moveable. To fill in such gaps, in this paper we propose novel container migration algorithms and architecture to support mobility tasks with various application requirements. Our algorithms are realized from three aspects: 1) We consider mobile application tasks can be hosted in a container of a corresponding fog node that can be migrated, taking the communication delay and computational power consumption into consideration; 2) We further model such container migration strategy as multiple dimensional Markov Decision Process (MDP) spaces. To effectively reduce the large MDP spaces, efficient deep reinforcement learning algorithms are devised to achieve fast decision-making and 3) We implement the model and algorithms as a container migration prototype system and test its feasibility and performance. Extensive experiments show that our strategy outperforms the existing baseline approaches 2.9, 48.5 and 58.4 percent on average in terms of delay, power consumption, and migration cost, respectively.

  • Multi-User Multi-Task Computation Offloading in Green Mobile Edge Cloud
    • Authors: Weiwei Chen;Dong Wang;Keqin Li;
      Pages: 726 - 738
      Abstract: Mobile Edge Cloud Computing (MECC) has becoming an attractive solution for augmenting the computing and storage capacity of Mobile Devices (MDs) by exploiting the available resources at the network edge. In this work, we consider computation offloading at the mobile edge cloud that is composed of a set of Wireless Devices (WDs), and each WD has an energy harvesting equipment to collect renewable energy from the environment. Moreover, multiple MDs intend to offload their tasks to the mobile edge cloud simultaneously. We first formulate the multi-user multi-task computation offloading problem for green MECC, and use Lyaponuv Optimization Approach to determine the energy harvesting policy: how much energy to be harvested at each WD; and the task offloading schedule: the set of computation offloading requests to be admitted into the mobile edge cloud, the set of WDs assigned to each admitted offloading request, and how much workload to be processed at the assigned WDs. We then prove that the task offloading scheduling problem is NP-hard, and introduce centralized and distributed Greedy Maximal Scheduling algorithms to resolve the problem efficiently. Performance bounds of the proposed schemes are also discussed. Extensive evaluations are conducted to test the performance of the proposed algorithms.

  • A Double Deep Q-Learning Model for Energy-Efficient Edge Scheduling
    • Authors: Qingchen Zhang;Man Lin;Laurence T. Yang;Zhikui Chen;Samee U. Khan;Peng Li;
      Pages: 739 - 749
      Abstract: Reducing energy consumption is a vital and challenging problem for the edge computing devices since they are always energy-limited. To tackle this problem, a deep Q-learning model with multiple DVFS (dynamic voltage and frequency scaling) algorithms was proposed for energy-efficient scheduling (DQL-EES). However, DQL-EES is highly unstable when using a single stacked auto-encoder to approximate the Q-function. Additionally, it cannot distinguish the continuous system states well since it depends on a Q-table to generate the target values for training parameters. In this paper, a double deep Q-learning model is proposed for energy-efficient edge scheduling (DDQ-EES). Specially, the proposed double deep Q-learning model includes a generated network for producing the Q-value for each DVFS algorithm and a target network for producing the target Q-values to train the parameters. Furthermore, the rectified linear units (ReLU) function is used as the activation function in the double deep Q-learning model, instead of the Sigmoid function in QDL-EES, to avoid gradient vanishing. Finally, a learning algorithm based on experience replay is developed to train the parameters of the proposed model. The proposed model is compared with DQL-EES on EdgeCloudSim in terms of energy saving and training time. Results indicate that our proposed model can save average 2%-2.4% energy and achieve a higher training efficiency than QQL-EES, proving its potential for energy-efficient edge scheduling.

  • Mobile Edge Provision with Flexible Deployment
    • Authors: Pingting Hao;Liang Hu;Jingyan Jiang;Jiejun Hu;Xilong Che;
      Pages: 750 - 761
      Abstract: The Mobile Edge Network (MEN) has emerged as the basic infrastructure to support fifth-generation networks, mobile edge computing and fog computing. The characteristics of mobility must be addressed to guarantee the quality of service in MENs. As one of the critical problems in MENs, flexible deployment plays a part in exploiting edge networks. Despite the abundance of recently proposed strategies, most concentrate on the change in user demands and inevitably ignore the influence for the user mobility, which is common in future networks. We propose Provision for Mobile Edge Computing (PMEC), a prototype that takes advantage of storage devices with flexible placement. In PMEC, we accommodate various considerations and select different storage devices to cache, deploying the cache with the relationship of a two-tiered structure in the MEN. Thus, we construct a flexible overlay network with the objective of minimizing the cost in a two-tiered edge network. Based on the analysis of the problem, we solve the two-tiered placement from bottom to top using the dynamic minimal spanning tree (MST) algorithm and design two algorithms for each tier including the basic algorithm and the improved algorithms. The simulation is conducted on realistic data to demonstrate the performance of our algorithms.

  • Blockchain for Large-Scale Internet of Things Data Storage and Protection
    • Authors: Ruinian Li;Tianyi Song;Bo Mei;Hong Li;Xiuzhen Cheng;Limin Sun;
      Pages: 762 - 771
      Abstract: With the dramatically increasing deployment of IoT devices, storing and protecting the large volume of IoT data has become a significant issue. Traditional cloud-based IoT structures impose extremely high computation and storage demands on the cloud servers. Meanwhile, the strong dependencies on the centralized servers bring significant trust issues. To mitigate these problems, we propose a distributed data storage scheme employing blockchain and cetrificateless cryptography. Our scheme eliminates the traditional centralized servers by leveraging the blockchain miners who perform “transaction” verifications and records audit with the help of certificateless cryptography. We present a clear definition of the transactions in a non-cryptocurrency system and illustrate how the transactions are processed. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first work designing a secure and accountable IoT storage system using blockchain. Additionally, we extend our scheme to enable data trading and elaborate how data trading can be efficiently and effectively achieved.

  • Lightweight Fine-Grained Search Over Encrypted Data in Fog Computing
    • Authors: Yinbin Miao;Jianfeng Ma;Ximeng Liu;Jian Weng;Hongwei Li;Hui Li;
      Pages: 772 - 785
      Abstract: Fog computing, as an extension of cloud computing, outsources the encrypted sensitive data to multiple fog nodes on the edge of Internet of Things (IoT) to decrease latency and network congestion. However, the existing ciphertext retrieval schemes rarely focus on the fog computing environment and most of them still impose high computational and storage overhead on resource-limited end users. In this paper, we first present a Lightweight Fine-Grained ciphertexts Search (LFGS) system in fog computing by extending Ciphertext-Policy Attribute-Based Encryption (CP-ABE) and Searchable Encryption (SE) technologies, which can achieve fine-grained access control and keyword search simultaneously. The LFGS can shift partial computational and storage overhead from end users to chosen fog nodes. Furthermore, the basic LFGS system is improved to support conjunctive keyword search and attribute update to avoid returning irrelevant search results and illegal accesses. The formal security analysis shows that the LFGS system can resist Chosen-Keyword Attack (CKA) and Chosen-Plaintext Attack (CPA), and the simulation using a real-world dataset demonstrates that the LFGS system is efficient and feasible in practice.

  • Privacy-Preserving Reputation Management for Edge Computing Enhanced
           Mobile Crowdsensing
    • Authors: Lichuan Ma;Xuefeng Liu;Qingqi Pei;Yong Xiang;
      Pages: 786 - 799
      Abstract: Mobile crowdsensing (MCS) has gained popularity for its potential to leverage individual mobile devices to sense, collect, and analyze data instead of deploying sensors. As the sensing data become increasingly fine-grained and complicated, there is a tendency to enhance MCS with the edge computing paradigm to reduce time delays and high bandwidth costs. The sensing data may reveal personal information, and thus it is of great significance to preserve the privacy of the participants. However, preserving privacy may hinder the process of handling malicious participants. In this paper, we propose two privacy preserving reputation management schemes for edge computing enhanced MCS to simultaneously preserve privacy and deal with malicious participants. In the basic scheme, a novel reputation value updating method is designed based on the deviations of the encrypted sensing data from the final aggregating result. The basic scheme is efficient at the expense of revealing the deviation value of each participant to the reputation manager. To conquer this drawback, we propose an advanced scheme by updating the reputation values utilizing the rank of deviations. Extensive experiments demonstrate that both these two schemes have high cost efficiency and are effective to deal with malicious participants.

  • Congestion-Minimizing Network Update in Data Centers
    • Authors: Jiaqi Zheng;Hong Xu;Guihai Chen;Haipeng Dai;Jie Wu;
      Pages: 800 - 812
      Abstract: The SDN control plane needs to frequently update the data plane as the network conditions change. Since each switch updates its flow table independently and asynchronously, the transition of data plane state - if done directly from the initial to the final stage - may result in serious flash congestion. Prior work strives to find a congestion-free update plan with multiple stages, each with the property that there will be no congestion independent of the update order. Yet congestion-free update may prevent the network from being fully utilized. It also requires solving a series of LP which is time-consuming. In this paper, we propose congestion-minimizing update and focus on two general problems: The first is to find routing at each intermediate stage that minimizes transient congestion for a given number of intermediate stages. The second is to find the minimum number of intermediate stages and an update plan for a given maximum level of transient congestion. We formulate them as two optimization programs and prove their hardness. We propose a set of algorithms to find the update plan in a scalable manner. Extensive experiments with Mininet show that our solution reduces update time by 50 percent and saves control overhead by 38 percent compared to prior work.

      Abstract: Currently, searchable encryption is a hot topic in the field of cloud computing. The existing achievements are mainly focused on keyword-based search schemes, and almost all of them depend on predefined keywords extracted in the phases of index construction and query. However, keyword-based search schemes ignore the semantic representation information of users' retrieval and cannot completely match users' search intention. Therefore, how to design a content-based search scheme and make semantic search more effective and context-aware is a difficult challenge. In this paper, for the first time, we define and solve the problems of semantic search based on conceptual graphs (CGs) over encrypted outsourced data in clouding computing (SSCG). We first employ the efficient measure of “sentence scoring” in text summarization and Tregex to extract the most important and simplified topic sentences from documents. We then convert these simplified sentences into CGs. To perform quantitative calculation of CGs, we design a new method that can map CGs to vectors. Next, we rank the returned results based on “text summarization score”. Furthermore, we propose a basic idea for SSCG and give a significantly improved scheme to satisfy the security guarantee of searchable symmetric encryption (SSE). Finally, we choose a real-world dataset, i.e., the CNN dataset to test our scheme. The results obtained from the experiment show the effectiveness of our proposed scheme.

  • Incentive and Unconditionally Anonymous Identity-Based Public Provable
           Data Possession
    • Authors: Huaqun Wang;Debiao He;Jia Yu;Zhiwei Wang;
      Pages: 824 - 835
      Abstract: When the data is stored in public clouds, provable data possession (for short, PDP) is of crucial importance in cloud storage. PDP can make the users verify whether their outsourced data is kept intact without downloading the whole data. In some application scenarios, anonymity is very important in order to protect the user identity privacy. In order to encourage users to disclose bad event, the government or organization or individual may pay for the user who provides the precious data. Thus, incentive and unconditionally anonymous identity-based public PDP (for short, IAID-PDP) is a very important security concept. From the above requirements, for the first time, we propose the concept of IAID-PDP. We formalize its system model and security model. Based on the bilinear pairings, a concrete IAID-PDP protocol is presented. Based on the standard hard problems, the proposed IAID-PDP protocol is provably secure. IAID-PDP protocol eliminates the complex certificate management since it is designed in the identity-based public key cryptography. Through the performance analysis and security analysis, our IAID-PDP protocol satisfies the following properties: certification elimination, incentive, unconditional anonymity and remote data integrity checking.
