  • Efficient Hierarchical Authentication Protocol for Multiserver
    • Abstract: The multiserver architecture authentication (MSAA) protocol plays a significant role in achieving secure communications between devices. In recent years, researchers proposed many new MSAA protocols to gain more functionality and security. However, in the existing studies, registered users can access to all registered service providers in the system without any limitation. To ensure that the system can restrict users that are at different levels and can access to different levels of service providers, we propose a new lightweight hierarchical authentication protocol for multiserver architecture using a Merkle tree to verify user’s authentication right. The proposed protocol has hierarchical authentication functionality, high security, and reasonable computation and communication costs. Moreover, the security analysis demonstrates that the proposed protocol satisfies the security requirements in practical applications, and the proposed protocol is provably secure in the general security model.

  • Design and Analysis of a Novel Chaos-Based Image Encryption Algorithm via
           Switch Control Mechanism
    • Abstract: Chaos has been widely used in image encryption due to its rich properties. However, it remains an irreconcilable contradiction for security and implementation efficiency for image encryption schemes. In this paper, a novel chaos-based image encryption scheme has been proposed, where the Lorenz chaotic system is applied to generate pseudorandom sequences with good randomness, and a random switch control mechanism is introduced to ensure the security of the encryption scheme. Experimental results demonstrate the effectiveness and superiority of the algorithm.

  • A CP-ABE Scheme Supporting Arithmetic Span Programs
    • Abstract: Attribute-based encryption achieves fine-grained access control, especially in a cloud computing environment. In a ciphertext-policy attribute-based encryption (CP-ABE) scheme, the ciphertexts are associated with the access policies, while the secret keys are determined by the attributes. In recent years, people have tried to find more effective access structures to improve the efficiency of encryption systems. This paper presents a ciphertext-policy attribute-based encryption scheme that supports arithmetic span programs. On the composite-order bilinear group, the security of the scheme is proven by experimental sequence based on the combination of composite-order bilinear entropy expansion lemma and subgroup decision (SD) assumption. And, it is an adaptively secure scheme with constant-size public parameters.

  • Integrating Security Requirements Engineering into MBSE: Profile and
    • Abstract: Model-Based System Engineering (MBSE) provides a number of ways on how to create, validate, and verify the complex system design; unfortunately, the inherent security aspects are addressed neither by the SysML language that is the main MBSE enabler nor by popular MBSE methods. Although there are many common points between MBSE and security requirements engineering, the key advantages of MBSE (such as managed complexity, reduced risk and cost, and improved communication across a multidisciplinary team) have not been exploited enough. This paper reviews security requirements engineering processes and modeling methods and standards and provides the MBSE security profile as well, which is formalized with the UML 2.5 profiling capability. The new UML-based security profile conforms to the ISO/IEC 27001 information security standard. In addition to the MBSE security profile, this paper also presents the security profile application use case and the feasibility study of current status for security and systems engineering processes.

  • Minimizing Key Materials: The Even–Mansour Cipher Revisited and Its
           Application to Lightweight Authenticated Encryption
    • Abstract: The Even–Mansour cipher has been widely used in block ciphers and lightweight symmetric-key ciphers because of its simple structure and strict provable security. Its research has been a hot topic in cryptography. This paper focuses on the problem to minimize the key material of the Even–Mansour cipher while its security bound remains essentially the same. We introduce four structures of the Even–Mansour cipher with a short key and derive their security by Patarin’s H-coefficients technique. These four structures are proven secure up to adversarial queries, where k is the bit length of the key material and μ is the maximal multiplicity. Then, we apply them to lightweight authenticated encryption modes and prove their security up to about -bit adversarial queries, where b is the size of the permutation and c is the capacity of the permutation. Finally, we leave it as an open problem to settle the security of the t-round iterated Even–Mansour cipher with short keys.

  • User Audit Model Based on Attribute Measurement and Similarity Measurement
    • Abstract: The Internet of Things (IoT) is an open network. And, there are a large number of malicious nodes in the network. These malicious nodes may tamper with the correct data and pass them to other nodes. The normal nodes will use the wrong data for information dissemination due to a lack of ability to verify the correctness of the messages received, resulting in the dissemination of false information on medical, social, and other networks. Auditing user attributes and behavior information to identify malicious user nodes is an important way to secure networks. In response to the user nodes audit problem, a user audit model based on attribute measurement and similarity measurement (AM-SM-UAM) is proposed. Firstly, the user attribute measurement algorithm is constructed, using a hierarchical decision model to construct a judgment matrix to analyze user attribute data. Secondly, the blog similarity measurement algorithm is constructed, evaluating the similarity of blog posts published by different users based on the improved Levenshtein distance. Finally, a user audit model based on a security degree is built, and malicious users are defined by security thresholds. Experimental results show that this model can comprehensively analyze the attribute and behavior data of users and have more accurate and stable performance in the practical application of the network platforms.

  • Highly Secure Privacy-Preserving Outsourced k-Means Clustering under
           Multiple Keys in Cloud Computing
    • Abstract: Data clustering is the unsupervised classification of data records into groups. As one of the steps in data analysis, it has been widely researched and applied in practical life, such as pattern recognition, image processing, information retrieval, geography, and marketing. In addition, the rapid increase of data volume in recent years poses a huge challenge for resource-constrained data owners to perform computation on their data. This leads to a trend that users authorize the cloud to perform computation on stored data, such as keyword search, equality test, and outsourced data clustering. In outsourced data clustering, the cloud classifies users’ data into groups according to their similarities. Considering the sensitive information in outsourced data and multiple data owners in practical application, it is necessary to develop a privacy-preserving outsourced clustering scheme under multiple keys. Recently, Rong et al. proposed a privacy-preserving outsourced k-means clustering scheme under multiple keys. However, in their scheme, the assistant server (AS) is able to extract the ratio of two underlying data records, and key management server (KMS) can decrypt the ciphertexts of owners’ data records, which break the privacy security. AS can even reduce all data records if it knows one of the data records. To solve the aforementioned problem, we propose a highly secure privacy-preserving outsourced k-means clustering scheme under multiple keys in cloud computing. In this paper, noncolluded cloud computing service (CCS) and KMS jointly perform clustering over the encrypted data records without exposing data privacy. Specifically, we use BCP encryption which has additive homomorphic property and AES encryption to double encrypt data records, where the former cryptosystem prevents CCS from obtaining any useful information from received ciphertexts and the latter one protects data records from being decrypted by KMS. We first define five protocols to realize different functions and then present our scheme based on these protocols. Finally, we give the security and performance analyses which show that our scheme is comparable with the existing schemes on functionality and security.

  • On the Unlinkability of Fingerprint Shell
    • Abstract: To prevent the leakage of original biometric information of a user, it may be transformed into a cancelable form. A cancelable biometric transformation should satisfy four requirements: unlinkability, revocability, noninvertibility, and performance. In 2014, Moujahdi et al. proposed a new cancelable fingerprint transformation called fingerprint shell, which was also later discussed by Ali et al. In this paper, we show that all of the shell fingerprint schemes presented by Moujahdi et al. and Ali et al. do not satisfy the condition of unlinkability.

  • An Efficient Encrypted Floating-Point Representation Using HEAAN and TFHE
    • Abstract: As a method of privacy-preserving data analysis (PPDA), a fully homomorphic encryption (FHE) has been in the spotlight recently. Unfortunately, because many data analysis methods assume that the type of data is of real type, the FHE-based PPDA methods could not support the enough level of accuracy due to the nature of FHE that fixed-point real-number representation is supported easily. In this paper, we propose a new method to represent encrypted floating-point real numbers on top of FHE. The proposed method is designed to have analogous range and accuracy to 32-bit floating-point number in IEEE 754 representation. We propose a method to perform arithmetic operations and size comparison operations. The proposed method is designed using two different FHEs, HEAAN and TFHE. As a result, HEAAN is proven to be very efficient for arithmetic operations and TFHE is efficient in size comparison. This study is expected to contribute to practical use of FHE-based PPDA.

  • Security of Cloud Computing Using Adaptive Neural Fuzzy Inference System
    • Abstract: Cloud computing can enable organizations to do more by breaking the physical bonds between an IT foundation. The raised security dangers in cloud computing must be overpowered to profit the new processing perspective that offers an imaginative arrangement of activity for relationship to IT. The purpose of the study was to reduce security’s obstacles and risks by using protection methods and approaches to ensure maximum data protection, which allows for the user to select the original security level. An adaptive neural control fuzzy system is used to resolve the unsecure and risky tasks of cloud computing. Sugeno control methods have been applied for these data protection issues in which the uncertainty because of randomness can be resolved. ANFIS identified the input parameters according to the current scenario, fuzzified the data, and integrated them into knowledge rule base. Different membership functions were used for training the data. In this article, we present a point-by-point examination of the cloud security issue. We assessed the issue from the cloud building point of view. In context of this examination, we deduce an unmistakable detail of the cloud security issue and key highlights that ought to be confirmed by any proposed security strategy. The examination and results show that the parameters dependent on ANFIS are very much intended to distinguish the oddities in cloud condition with least bogus negative rate and high discovery precision. The performance of Sugeno membership function usually gives better results and ensures the computational efficiency and accuracy of data.

  • Using a Subtractive Center Behavioral Model to Detect Malware
    • Abstract: In recent years, malware has evolved by using different obfuscation techniques; due to this evolution, the detection of malware has become problematic. Signature-based and traditional behavior-based malware detectors cannot effectively detect this new generation of malware. This paper proposes a subtractive center behavior model (SCBM) to create a malware dataset that captures semantically related behaviors from sample programs. In the proposed model, system paths, where malware behaviors are performed, and malware behaviors themselves are taken into consideration. This way malicious behavior patterns are differentiated from benign behavior patterns. Features that could not exceed the specified score are removed from the dataset. The datasets created using the proposed model contain far fewer features than the datasets created by n-gram and other models that have been used in other studies. The proposed model can handle both known and unknown malware, and the obtained detection rate and accuracy of the proposed model are higher than those of the known models. To show the effectiveness of the proposed model, 2 datasets with score and without score are created by using SCBM. In total, 6700 malware samples and 3000 benign samples are tested. The results are compared with those derived from n-gram and models from other studies in the literature. The test results show that, by combining the proposed model with an appropriate machine learning algorithm, the detection rate, false positive rate, and accuracy are measured as 99.9%, 0.2%, and 99.8%, respectively.

  • Secure Information Transmissions in Wireless-Powered Cognitive Radio
           Networks for Internet of Medical Things
    • Abstract: In this paper, we consider the issue of the secure transmissions for the cognitive radio-based Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) with wireless energy harvesting. In these systems, a primary transmitter (PT) will transmit its sensitive medical information to a primary receiver (PR) by a multi-antenna-based secondary transmitter (ST), where we consider that a potential eavesdropper may listen to the PT’s sensitive information. Meanwhile, the ST also transmits its own information concurrently by utilizing spectrum sharing. We aim to propose a novel scheme for jointly designing the optimal parameters, i.e., energy harvesting (EH) time ratio and secure beamforming vectors, for maximizing the primary secrecy transmission rate while guaranteeing secondary transmission requirement. For solving the nonconvex optimization problem, we transfer the problem into convex optimization form by adopting the semidefinite relaxation (SDR) method and Charnes–Cooper transformation technique. Then, the optimal secure beamforming vectors and energy harvesting duration can be obtained easily by utilizing the CVX tools. According to the simulation results of secrecy transmission rate, i.e., secrecy capacity, we can observe that the proposed protocol for the considered system model can effectively promote the primary secrecy transmission rate when compared with traditional zero-forcing (ZF) scheme, while ensuring the transmission rate of the secondary system.

  • Cyber-Physical Security with RF Fingerprint Classification through
           Distance Measure Extensions of Generalized Relevance Learning Vector
    • Abstract: Radio frequency (RF) fingerprinting extracts fingerprint features from RF signals to protect against masquerade attacks by enabling reliable authentication of communication devices at the “serial number” level. Facilitating the reliable authentication of communication devices are machine learning (ML) algorithms which find meaningful statistical differences between measured data. The Generalized Relevance Learning Vector Quantization-Improved (GRLVQI) classifier is one ML algorithm which has shown efficacy for RF fingerprinting device discrimination. GRLVQI extends the Learning Vector Quantization (LVQ) family of “winner take all” classifiers that develop prototype vectors (PVs) which represent data. In LVQ algorithms, distances are computed between exemplars and PVs, and PVs are iteratively moved to accurately represent the data. GRLVQI extends LVQ with a sigmoidal cost function, relevance learning, and PV update logic improvements. However, both LVQ and GRLVQI are limited due to a reliance on squared Euclidean distance measures and a seemingly complex algorithm structure if changes are made to the underlying distance measure. Herein, the authors (1) develop GRLVQI-D (distance), an extension of GRLVQI to consider alternative distance measures and (2) present the Cosine GRLVQI classifier using this framework. To evaluate this framework, the authors consider experimentally collected Z-wave RF signals and develop RF fingerprints to identify devices. Z-wave devices are low-cost, low-power communication technologies seen increasingly in critical infrastructure. Both classification and verification, claimed identity, and performance comparisons are made with the new Cosine GRLVQI algorithm. The results show more robust performance when using the Cosine GRLVQI algorithm when compared with four algorithms in the literature. Additionally, the methodology used to create Cosine GRLVQI is generalizable to alternative measures.

  • Cycle-Consistent Adversarial GAN: The Integration of Adversarial Attack
           and Defense
    • Abstract: In image classification of deep learning, adversarial examples where input is intended to add small magnitude perturbations may mislead deep neural networks (DNNs) to incorrect results, which means DNNs are vulnerable to them. Different attack and defense strategies have been proposed to better research the mechanism of deep learning. However, those researches in these networks are only for one aspect, either an attack or a defense. There is in the improvement of offensive and defensive performance, and it is difficult to promote each other in the same framework. In this paper, we propose Cycle-Consistent Adversarial GAN (CycleAdvGAN) to generate adversarial examples, which can learn and approximate the distribution of the original instances and adversarial examples, especially promoting attackers and defenders to confront each other and improve their ability. For CycleAdvGAN, once the Generator and are trained, can generate adversarial perturbations efficiently for any instance, improving the performance of the existing attack methods, and can generate recovery adversarial examples to clean instances, defending against existing attack methods. We apply CycleAdvGAN under semiwhite-box and black-box settings on two public datasets MNIST and CIFAR10. Using the extensive experiments, we show that our method has achieved the state-of-the-art adversarial attack method and also has efficiently improved the defense ability, which made the integration of adversarial attack and defense come true. In addition, it has improved the attack effect only trained on the adversarial dataset generated by any kind of adversarial attack.

  • Employing a Machine Learning Approach to Detect Combined Internet of
           Things Attacks against Two Objective Functions Using a Novel Dataset
    • Abstract: One of the important features of routing protocol for low-power and lossy networks (RPLs) is objective function (OF). OF influences an IoT network in terms of routing strategies and network topology. On the contrary, detecting a combination of attacks against OFs is a cutting-edge technology that will become a necessity as next generation low-power wireless networks continue to be exploited as they grow rapidly. However, current literature lacks study on vulnerability analysis of OFs particularly in terms of combined attacks. Furthermore, machine learning is a promising solution for the global networks of IoT devices in terms of analysing their ever-growing generated data and predicting cyberattacks against such devices. Therefore, in this paper, we study the vulnerability analysis of two popular OFs of RPL to detect combined attacks against them using machine learning algorithms through different simulated scenarios. For this, we created a novel IoT dataset based on power and network metrics, which is deployed as part of an RPL IDS/IPS solution to enhance information security. Addressing the captured results, our machine learning approach is successful in detecting combined attacks against two popular OFs of RPL based on the power and network metrics in which MLP and RF algorithms are the most successful classifier deployment for single and ensemble models.

  • Botnet Forensic Analysis Using Machine Learning
    • Abstract: Botnet forensic analysis helps in understanding the nature of attacks and the modus operandi used by the attackers. Botnet attacks are difficult to trace because of their rapid pace, epidemic nature, and smaller size. Machine learning works as a panacea for botnet attack related issues. It not only facilitates detection but also helps in prevention from bot attack. The proposed inquisition model endeavors improved quality of results by comprehensive botnet detection and forensic analysis. This scenario has been applied in eight different combinations of ensemble classifier technique to detect botnet evidence. The study is also compared to the ensemble-based classifiers with the single classifier using different parameters. The results exhibit that the proposed model can improve accuracy over a single classifier.

  • Incremental Learning for Malware Classification in Small Datasets
    • Abstract: Information security is an important research area. As a very special yet important case, malware classification plays an important role in information security. In the real world, the malware datasets are open-ended and dynamic, and new malware samples belonging to old classes and new classes are increasing continuously. This requires the malware classification method to enable incremental learning, which can efficiently learn the new knowledge. However, existing works mainly focus on feature engineering with machine learning as a tool. To solve the problem, we present an incremental malware classification framework, named “IMC,” which consists of opcode sequence extraction, selection, and incremental learning method. We develop an incremental learning method based on multiclass support vector machine (SVM) as the core component of IMC, named “IMCSVM,” which can incrementally improve its classification ability by learning new malware samples. In IMC, IMCSVM adds the new classification planes (if new samples belong to a new class) and updates all old classification planes for new malware samples. As a result, IMC can improve the classification quality of known malware classes by minimizing the prediction error and transfer the old model with known knowledge to classify unknown malware classes. We apply the incremental learning method into malware classification, and the experimental results demonstrate the advantages and effectiveness of IMC.

  • Cryptanalysis and Security Improvement of Two Authentication Schemes for
           Healthcare Systems Using Wireless Medical Sensor Networks
    • Abstract: Wireless medical sensor networks (WMSNs) play an important role in collecting healthcare data of the remote patient and transmitting them to the medical professional for proper diagnosis via wireless channel. To protect the patient's healthcare data which is private-related and sensitive, some authentication schemes for healthcare systems using WMSN have been proposed to ensure the secure communication between the medical sensors and the medical professional. Since cryptanalyzing the security defects of authenticated protocols is crucial to put forward solutions and propose truly robust protocols, we scrutinize two state-of-the-art authentication protocols using WMSN for healthcare systems. Firstly, we examine Ali et al.’s enhanced three-factor based authentication protocol and show that although it provides a formal proof and a security verification, it still fails to resist offline dictionary guessing attack, desynchronization attack, and privileged insider attack and contains a serious flaw in the password change phase. Secondly, we investigate Shuai et al.’s lightweight and three-factor based authentication protocol and point out that it cannot achieve high security level as they claimed; it is actually subject to offline dictionary guessing attack and privileged insider attack, and it also has a design flaw in the password change phase. In addition, we suggest several countermeasures to thwart these security weaknesses in these two schemes for WMSN and the similar kinds.

  • A Framework for Real-Time Intrusion Response in Software Defined
           Networking Using Precomputed Graphical Security Models
    • Abstract: Software defined networking (SDN) has been adopted in many application domains as it provides functionalities to dynamically control the network flow more robust and more economical compared to the traditional networks. In order to strengthen the security of the SDN against cyber attacks, many security solutions have been proposed. However, those solutions need to be compared in order to optimize the security of the SDN. To assess and evaluate the security of the SDN systematically, one can use graphical security models (e.g., attack graphs and attack trees). However, it is difficult to provide defense against an attack in real time due to their high computational complexity. In this paper, we propose a real-time intrusion response in SDN using precomputation to estimate the likelihood of future attack paths from an ongoing attack. We also take into account various SDN components to conduct a security assessment, which were not available when addressing only the components of an existing network. Our experimental analysis shows that we are able to estimate possible attack paths of an ongoing attack to mitigate it in real time, as well as showing the security metrics that depend on the flow table, including the SDN component. Hence, the proposed approach can be used to provide effective real-time mitigation solutions for securing SDN.

  • High-Efficiency Min-Entropy Estimation Based on Neural Network for Random
           Number Generators
    • Abstract: Random number generator (RNG) is a fundamental and important cryptographic element, which has made an outstanding contribution to guaranteeing the network and communication security of cryptographic applications in the Internet age. In reality, if the random number used cannot provide sufficient randomness (unpredictability) as expected, these cryptographic applications are vulnerable to security threats and cause system crashes. Min-entropy is one of the approaches that are usually employed to quantify the unpredictability. The NIST Special Publication 800-90B adopts the concept of min-entropy in the design of its statistical entropy estimation methods, and the predictive model-based estimators added in the second draft of this standard effectively improve the overall capability of the test suite. However, these predictors have problems on limited application scope and high computational complexity, e.g., they have shortfalls in evaluating random numbers with long dependence and multivariate due to the huge time complexity (i.e., high-order polynomial time complexity). Fortunately, there has been increasing attention to using neural networks to model and forecast time series, and random numbers are also a type of time series. In our work, we propose several new and efficient approaches for min-entropy estimation by using neural network technologies and design a novel execution strategy for the proposed entropy estimation to make it applicable to the validation of both stationary and nonstationary sources. Compared with the 90B’s predictors officially published in 2018, the experimental results on various simulated and real-world data sources demonstrate that our predictors have a better performance on the accuracy, scope of applicability, and execution efficiency. The average execution efficiency of our predictors can be up to 10 times higher than that of the 90B’s for sample size with different sample spaces. Furthermore, when the sample space is over and the sample size is over , the 90B’s predictors cannot give estimated results. Instead, our predictors can still provide accurate results.

  • Efficient Privacy-Preserving Fingerprint-Based Authentication System Using
           Fully Homomorphic Encryption
    • Abstract: To help smartphone users protect their phone, fingerprint-based authentication systems (e.g., Apple’s Touch ID) have increasingly become popular in smartphones. In web applications, however, fingerprint-based authentication is still rarely used. One of the most serious concerns is the lack of technology for securely storing fingerprint data used for authentication. Because scanned fingerprint data are not exactly the same each time, the use of a traditional cryptographic hash function (e.g., SHA-256) is infeasible to protect raw fingerprint data. In this paper, we present an efficient privacy-preserving fingerprint authentication system using a fully homomorphic encryption scheme in which fingerprint data are always stored and processed in an encrypted form. We implement a fully working fingerprint authentication system with a fingerprint database (containing 4,000 samples) using the Fast Fully Homomorphic Encryption over the Torus (TFHE) library. The proposed system can perform the fingerprint matching process within about 166 seconds (±0.564 seconds) on average.

  • Server-Aided Revocable Attribute-Based Encryption from Lattices
    • Abstract: Attribute-based encryption (ABE) can support a fine-grained access control to encrypted data. When the user’s secret-key is compromised, the ABE system has to revoke its decryption privileges to prevent the leakage of encrypted data. Although there are many constructions about revocable ABE from bilinear maps, the situation with lattice-based constructions is less satisfactory, and a few efforts were made to close this gap. In this work, we propose the first lattice-based server-aided revocable attribute-based encryption (SR-ABE) scheme and thus the first such construction that is believed to be quantum resistant. In the standard model, our scheme is proved to be secure based on the hardness of the Learning With Errors (LWE) problem.

  • Efficient Certificateless Aggregate Signature Scheme for Performing Secure
           Routing in VANETs
    • Abstract: Certificateless public key cryptosystem solves both the complex certificate management problem in the public key cryptosystem based on the PKI and the key escrow issue in the public key cryptosystem based on identity. The aggregator can compress n different signatures with respect to n messages from n signers into an aggregate signature, which can help communication equipments to save a lot of bandwidth and computing resources. Therefore, the certificateless aggregate signature (CLAS) scheme is particularly well suited to address secure routing authentication issues in resource-constrained vehicular ad hoc networks. Unfortunately, most of the existing CLAS schemes have problems with security vulnerabilities or high computation and communication overheads. To avoid the above issues and better solve the secure routing authentication problem in vehicular ad hoc networks, we present a new CLAS scheme and give the formal security proof of our scheme under the CDH assumption in the random oracle model. We then evaluate the performance of our proposed CLAS scheme, and the results demonstrate that our proposal is more practical in resource-constrained vehicular ad hoc networks.

  • Secure Outsourced Medical Data against Unexpected Leakage with Flexible
           Access Control in a Cloud Storage System
    • Abstract: The application of cloud storage system has been deployed widely in recent years. A lot of electronic medical records (EMRs) are collected and uploaded to the cloud for scalable sharing among the authority users. It is necessary to guarantee the confidentiality of EMRs and the privacy of EMR owners. To achieve this target, we summarize a series of attack behaviors in the cloud storage system and present the security model against many types of unexpected privacy leakage. Privacy of unassailed EMRs is guaranteed in this model, and the influence of privacy leakage is controlled in a certain scope. We also propose a role-based access control scheme to achieve flexible access control on these private EMRs. One can access medical records only if his/her role satisfies the defined access policy, which implies a fine-grained access control. Theoretical and experimental analyses show the efficiency of our scheme in terms of computation and communication.

  • MHCOOS: An Offline-Online Certificateless Signature Scheme for M-Health
    • Abstract: Current trends of mobile technology have seen a tremendous growth in its application in smart healthcare. This has resulted in the adoption and implementation of mobile health (m-health) systems by providing health assistance to the aging population. Despite its advantageous benefits, its computational complexities cannot be overlooked. M-health devices are portable processing tiny equipment with limited computational capabilities thereby making them complex for the implementation of public key cryptosystems. In spite of this, an Offline-Online signature scheme called the MHCOOS has been proposed to solve the difficulties in the computational ability. The scheme enjoys the following benefits by splitting the signing part into both offline and online phases. The offline phase performs heavy computations when a message is absent, whereas lighter computations are performed at the online stage when a message is present. Secondly, the online computations are extremely fast due to the already computed offline signature value and lighter pairings involved. Our performance analysis demonstrates how the proposed scheme outperforms other schemes. Finally, the hardness of the scheme is proven under the Bilinear Diffie–Hellman (BDH) and Computational Diffie–Hellman (CDH) problem in the random oracle model.

  • Identity-Based Public Auditing Scheme for Cloud Storage with Strong
           Key-Exposure Resilience
    • Abstract: Secured storage system is a critical component in cloud computing. Cloud clients use cloud auditing schemes to verify the integrity of data stored in the cloud. But with the exposure of the auditing secret key to the Cloud Service Provider, cloud auditing becomes unsuccessful, however strong the auditing schemes may be. Therefore, it is essential to prevent the exposure of auditing secret keys, and even if it happens, it is necessary to minimize the damage caused. The existing cloud auditing schemes that are strongly resilient to key exposure are based on Public Key Infrastructure and so have challenges of certificate management/verification. These schemes also incur high computation time during integrity verification of the data blocks. The Identity-based schemes eliminate the usage of certificates but limit the damage due to key exposure, only in time periods earlier to the time period of the exposed key. Some of the key exposure resilient schemes do not provide support for batch auditing. In this paper, an Identity-based Provable Data Possession scheme is proposed. It protects the security of Identity-based cloud storage auditing in time periods both earlier and later to the time period of the exposed key. It also provides support for batch auditing. Analysis shows that the proposed scheme is resistant to the replace attack of the Cloud Service Provider, preserves the data privacy against the Third Party Auditor, and can efficiently verify the correctness of data.

  • A Stacking Ensemble for Network Intrusion Detection Using Heterogeneous
    • Abstract: The problem of network intrusion detection poses innumerable challenges to the research community, industry, and commercial sectors. Moreover, the persistent attacks occurring on the cyber-threat landscape compel researchers to devise robust approaches in order to address the recurring problem. Given the presence of massive network traffic, conventional machine learning algorithms when applied in the field of network intrusion detection are quite ineffective. Instead, a hybrid multimodel solution when sought improves performance thereby producing reliable predictions. Therefore, this article presents an ensemble model using metaclassification approach enabled by stacked generalization. Two contemporary as well as heterogeneous datasets, namely, UNSW NB-15, a packet-based dataset, and UGR’16, a flow-based dataset, that were captured in emulated as well as real network traffic environment, respectively, were used for experimentation. Empirical results indicate that the proposed stacking ensemble is capable of generating superior predictions with respect to a real-time dataset (97% accuracy) than an emulated one (94% accuracy).

  • Jamming Prediction for Radar Signals Using Machine Learning Methods
    • Abstract: Jamming is a form of electronic warfare where jammers radiate interfering signals toward an enemy radar, disrupting the receiver. The conventional method for determining an effective jamming technique corresponding to a threat signal is based on the library which stores the appropriate jamming method for signal types. However, there is a limit to the use of a library when a threat signal of a new type or a threat signal that has been altered differently from existing types is received. In this paper, we study two methods of predicting the appropriate jamming technique for a received threat signal using deep learning: using a deep neural network on feature values extracted manually from the PDW list and using long short-term memory (LSTM) which takes the PDW list as input. Using training data consisting of pairs of threat signals and corresponding jamming techniques, a deep learning model is trained which outputs jamming techniques for threat signal inputs. Training data are constructed based on the information in the library, but the trained deep learning model is used to predict jamming techniques for received threat signals without using the library. The prediction performance and time complexity of two proposed methods are compared. In particular, the ability to predict jamming techniques for unknown types of radar signals which are not used in the stage of training the model is analyzed.

  • A Multibranch Search Tree-Based Multi-Keyword Ranked Search Scheme over
           Encrypted Cloud Data
    • Abstract: In the interest of privacy concerns, cloud service users choose to encrypt their personal data before outsourcing them to cloud. However, it is difficult to achieve efficient search over encrypted cloud data. Therefore, how to design an efficient and accurate search scheme over large-scale encrypted cloud data is a challenge. In this paper, we integrate bisecting k-means algorithm and multibranch tree structure and propose the α-filtering tree search scheme based on bisecting k-means clusters. The novel index tree is built from bottom-up, and a greedy depth first algorithm is used for filtering the nonrelevant document cluster by calculating the relevance score between the filtering vector and the query vector. The α-filtering tree can improve the efficiency without the loss of search accuracy. The experiment on a real-world dataset demonstrates the effectiveness of our scheme.

  • Protecting Metadata of Access Indicator and Region of Interests for Image
    • Abstract: With popularity of social network services, the security and privacy issues over shared contents receive many attentions. Besides, multimedia files have additional concerns of copyright violation or illegal usage to share over communication networks. For image file management, JPEG group develops new image file format to enhance security and privacy features. Adopting a box structure with different application markers, new standards for privacy and security provide a concept of replacement substituting a private part of the original image or metadata with an alternative public data. In this paper, we extend data protection features of new JPEG formats to remote access control as a metadata. By keeping location information of access control data as a metadata in image files, the image owner can allow or deny other’s data consumption regardless where the media file is. License issue also can be resolved by applying new access control schemes, and we present how new formats protect commercial image files against unauthorized accesses.
