  • Construction of New S-Box Using Action of Quotient of the Modular Group
           for Multimedia Security
    • Abstract: Substitution box (S-box) is a vital nonlinear component for the security of cryptographic schemes. In this paper, a new technique which involves coset diagrams for the action of a quotient of the modular group on the projective line over the finite field is proposed for construction of an S-box. It is constructed by selecting vertices of the coset diagram in a special manner. A useful transformation involving Fibonacci sequence is also used in selecting the vertices of the coset diagram. Finally, all the analyses to examine the security strength are performed. The outcomes of the analyses are encouraging and show that the generated S-box is highly secure.

  • Novel Meaningful Image Encryption Based on Block Compressive Sensing
    • Abstract: This paper proposes a new image compression-encryption algorithm based on a meaningful image encryption framework. In block compressed sensing, the plain image is divided into blocks, and subsequently, each block is rendered sparse. The zigzag scrambling method is used to scramble pixel positions in all the blocks, and subsequently, dimension reduction is undertaken via compressive sensing. To ensure the robustness and security of our algorithm and the convenience of subsequent embedding operations, each block is merged, quantized, and disturbed again to obtain the secret image. In particular, landscape paintings have a characteristic hazy beauty, and secret images can be camouflaged in them to some extent. For this reason, in this paper, a landscape painting is selected as the carrier image. After a 2-level discrete wavelet transform (DWT) of the carrier image, the low-frequency and high-frequency coefficients obtained are further subjected to a discrete cosine transform (DCT). The DCT is simultaneously applied to the secret image as well to split it. Next, it is embedded into the DCT coefficients of the low-frequency and high-frequency components, respectively. Finally, the encrypted image is obtained. The experimental results show that, under the same compression ratio, the proposed image compression-encryption algorithm has better reconstruction effect, stronger security and imperceptibility, lower computational complexity, shorter time consumption, and lesser storage space requirements than the existing ones.

  • Active Defense Strategy Selection Method Based on Two-Way Signaling Game
    • Abstract: Most network security research studies based on signaling games assume that either the attacker or the defender is the sender of the signal and the other party is the receiver of the signal. The attack and defense process is commonly modeled and analyzed from the perspective of one-way signal transmission. Aiming at the reality of two-way signal transmission in network attack and defense confrontation, we propose a method of active defense strategy selection based on a two-way signaling game. In this paper, a two-way signaling game model is constructed to analyze the network attack and defense processes. Based on the solution of a perfect Bayesian equilibrium, a defense strategy selection algorithm is presented. The feasibility and effectiveness of the method are verified using examples from real-world applications. In addition, the mechanism of the deception signal is analyzed, and conclusions for guiding the selection of active defense strategies are provided.

  • Detection of Trojaning Attack on Neural Networks via Cost of Sample
    • Abstract: To overcome huge resource consumption of neural networks training, MLaaS (Machine Learning as a Service) has become an irresistible trend, just like SaaS (Software as a Service), PaaS (Platform as a Service), and IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) have been. But it comes with some security issues of untrustworthy third-party services. Especially machine learning providers may deploy trojan backdoors in provided models for the pursuit of extra profit or other illegal purposes. Against the redundant nodes-based trojaning attack on neural networks, we proposed a novel detecting method, which only requires the untrusted model to be tested and a small batch of legitimate dataset. By comparing different processes of neural networks training, we found that the embedding of malicious nodes will make their parameter configuration abnormal. Moreover, by analysing the cost distribution of test dataset on network nodes, we successfully detect the trojaned nodes in the neural networks. As far as we know, the research on the defence against trojaning attack on neural networks is still in its infancy, and our research may shed light on the security of MLaaS in real-life scenarios.

  • Estimating the Relative Speed of RF Jammers in VANETs
    • Abstract: Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks (VANETs) aim at enhancing road safety and providing a comfortable driving environment by delivering early warning and infotainment messages to the drivers. Jamming attacks, however, pose a significant threat to their performance. In this paper, we propose a novel Relative Speed Estimation Algorithm (RSEA) of a moving vehicle that approaches a transmitter ()-receiver () pair that interferes with their radio frequency (RF) communication by conducting a denial of service (DoS) attack. Our scheme is completely passive and uses a pilot-based received signal without hardware or computational cost to, firstly, estimate the combined channel between the transmitter-receiver and jammer-receiver and, secondly, to estimate the jamming signal and the relative speed between the jammer-receiver using the RF Doppler shift. Moreover, the relative speed metric exploits the angle of projection (AOP) of the speed vector of the jammer in the axis of its motion in order to form a two-dimensional representation of the geographical area. Our approach can effectively be applied for any form of the jamming signal and is proven to have quite accurate performance, with a mean absolute error (MAE) value of approximately compared to the optimal zero MAE value under different jamming attack scenarios.

  • Session-Based Webshell Detection Using Machine Learning in Web Logs
    • Abstract: Attackers upload webshell into a web server to achieve the purpose of stealing data, launching a DDoS attack, modifying files with malicious intentions, etc. Once these objects are accomplished, it will bring huge losses to website managers. With the gradual development of encryption and confusion technology, the most common detection approach using taint analysis and feature matching might become less useful. Instead of applying source file codes, POST contents, or all received traffic, this paper demonstrated an intelligent and efficient framework that employs precise sessions derived from the web logs to detect webshell communication. Features were extracted from the raw sequence data in web logs while a statistical method based on time interval was proposed to identify sessions specifically. Besides, the paper leveraged long short-term memory and hidden Markov model to constitute the framework, respectively. Finally, the framework was evaluated with real data. The experiment shows that the LSTM-based model can achieve a higher accuracy rate of 95.97% with a recall rate of 96.15%, which has a much better performance than the HMM-based model. Moreover, the experiment demonstrated the high efficiency of the proposed approach in terms of the quick detection without source code, especially when it only considers detecting for a period of time, as it takes 98.5% less time than the cited related approach to get the result. As long as the webshell behavior is detected, we can pinpoint the anomaly session and utilize the statistical method to find the webshell file accurately.

  • Design of Intrusion Detection and Prevention in SCADA System for the
           Detection of Bias Injection Attacks
    • Abstract: Intrusion detection and prevention system detects malicious activities that occur in the real-time SCADA systems. This system has a problem without a profound solution. The challenge of the existing intrusion detection is accuracy in the process of detecting the anomalies. In SCADA, wind turbine data are modified by the intruders and forged details are given to the server. To overcome this, the biased intrusion detection system is used for detecting the intrusion with encrypted date, time, and file location with less false-positive and false-negative rates and thereby preventing the SCADA system from further intrusion. It is done in three phases. First, Modified Grey Wolf Optimization (MGWO) is used to extract the features needed for classification and to find the best weight. Second, Entropy-based Extreme Learning Machine (EELM) is used to extort the features and detect the intruded data with its intruded time, file location, and date. Finally, the data are encrypted using the Hybrid Elliptical Curve Cryptography (HECC) to prevent further attack. Experimental results show better accuracy in both detection as well as prevention.

  • Algebraic Degree Estimation of ACORN v3 Using Numeric Mapping
    • Abstract: ACORN v3 is a lightweight authenticated encryption cipher, which was selected as one of the seven finalists of CAESAR competition in March 2018. It is intended for lightweight applications (resource-constrained environments). By using the technique numeric mapping proposed at CRYPTO 2017, an efficient algorithm for algebraic degree estimation of ACORN v3 is proposed. As a result, new distinguishing attacks on 647, 649, 670, 704, and 721 initialization rounds of ACORN v3 are obtained, respectively. So far, as we know, all of our distinguishing attacks on ACORN v3 are the best. The effectiveness and accuracy of our algorithm is confirmed by the experimental results.

  • MWPoW: Multiple Winners Proof of Work Protocol, a Decentralisation
           Strengthened Fast-Confirm Blockchain Protocol
    • Abstract: Blockchain mining should not be a game among power oligarchs. In this paper, we present the Multiple Winners Proof of Work Protocol (MWPoW), a mining-pool-like decentralised blockchain consensus protocol. MWPoW enables disadvantaged nodes which post only a small amount of calculation resource in the mining game to create blocks together and compete with power oligarchs without centralised representatives. A precise Support Rate of blocks can be determined through the mining process; the mechanism of the mainchain determination is therefore changed and has become faster and more straightforward. A method that periodically adjusts the block size and the block interval is introduced into MWPoW, which increases the system flexibility in the changes of network conditions and data flow. Experiments suggest, without lifting calculation and bandwidth requirements, MWPoW is more attractive to disadvantaged nodes due to its mostly increased reward expectation for disadvantaged nodes. The transaction pending time is shortened chiefly, and either the block interval or the block size can be adapted amid the changes of overall network conditions.

  • Recurrent Neural Network Model Based on a New Regularization Technique for
           Real-Time Intrusion Detection in SDN Environments
    • Abstract: Software-defined networking (SDN) is a promising approach to networking that provides an abstraction layer for the physical network. This technology has the potential to decrease the networking costs and complexity within huge data centers. Although SDN offers flexibility, it has design flaws with regard to network security. To support the ongoing use of SDN, these flaws must be fixed using an integrated approach to improve overall network security. Therefore, in this paper, we propose a recurrent neural network (RNN) model based on a new regularization technique (RNN-SDR). This technique supports intrusion detection within SDNs. The purpose of regularization is to generalize the machine learning model enough for it to be performed optimally. Experiments on the KDD Cup 1999, NSL-KDD, and UNSW-NB15 datasets achieved accuracies of 99.5%, 97.39%, and 99.9%, respectively. The proposed RNN-SDR employs a minimum number of features when compared with other models. In addition, the experiments also validated that the RNN-SDR model does not significantly affect network performance in comparison with other options. Based on the analysis of the results of our experiments, we conclude that the RNN-SDR model is a promising approach for intrusion detection in SDN environments.

  • Physical Layer Security in Nonorthogonal Multiple Access Wireless Network
           with Jammer Selection
    • Abstract: The physical layer security of downlink nonorthogonal multiple access (NOMA) network is analyzed. In order to improve the secrecy probability, friendly jammers are jointed in the NOMA network. Two jammer schemes are proposed in the NOMA network. All the jammers transmit jamming signal without jammer selection in the first scheme (NO JS scheme). Jammers are selected to transmit jamming signal if their interfering power on scheduled users is below a threshold in the second scheme (JS scheme). A stochastic geometry approach is applied to analyze the outage probability and the secrecy probability. Compared with the NO JS scheme and traditional scheme (without jointing jammers), the jammer selection scheme provides a good balance between the user outage probability and secrecy probability. Numerical results demonstrate that the security performance of the two proposed schemes can be improved by jointing the jammers in the NOMA wireless network.

  • Towards an Efficient Management and Orchestration Framework for Virtual
           Network Security Functions
    • Abstract: The recent years have witnessed a growth in the number of users connected to computer networks, due mainly to megatrends such as Internet of Things (IoT), Industry 4.0, and Smart Grids. Simultaneously, service providers started offering vertical services related to a specific business case (e.g., automotive, banking, and e-health) requiring more and more scalability and flexibility for the infrastructures and their management. NFV and SDN technologies are a clear way forward to address these challenges even though they are still in their early stages. Security plays a central role in this scenario, mainly because it must follow the rapid evolution of computer networks and the growing number of devices. The main issue is to protect the end-user from the increasing threats, and for this reason, we propose in this paper a security framework compliant to the Security-as-a-Service paradigm. In order to implement this framework, we leverage NFV and SDN technologies, using a user-centered approach. This allows to customize the security service starting from user preferences. Another goal of our work is to highlight the main relevant challenges encountered in the design and implementation of our solution. In particular, we demonstrate how significant is to choose an efficient way to configure the Virtual Network Security Functions in terms of performance. Furthermore, we also address the nontrivial problem of Service Function Chaining in an NFV MANO platform and we show what are the main challenges with respect to this problem.

  • Analysis of DES Plaintext Recovery Based on BP Neural Network
    • Abstract: Backpropagation neural network algorithms are one of the most widely used algorithms in the current neural network algorithm. It uses the output error rate to estimate the error rate of the direct front layer of the output layer, so that we can get the error rate of each layer through the layer-by-layer backpropagation. The purpose of this paper is to simulate the decryption process of DES with backpropagation algorithm. By inputting a large number of plaintext and ciphertext pairs, a neural network simulator for the decryption of the target cipher is constructed, and the ciphertext given is decrypted. In this paper, how to modify the backpropagation neural network classifier and apply it to the process of building the regression analysis model is introduced in detail. The experimental results show that the final result of restoring plaintext of the neural network model built in this paper is ideal, and the fitting rate is higher than 90% compared with the true plaintext.

  • A Novel Three-Layer QR Code Based on Secret Sharing Scheme and Liner Code
    • Abstract: Quick Response (QR) code, a machine-readable symbol, is widely employed in all walks of life due to its large information capacity, strong error correction ability, and fast reading speed. However, anyone with a standard decoder could obtain stored information. In this paper, utilizing the characteristics of the Hamming code, wet paper code, and the recognition mechanism of the QR code, we introduce a high-capacity QR code with three-layer information to protect the sensitive information. In the proposed scheme, we utilize the XOR-based secret-sharing algorithm to embed the second-layer information on the column vector of the constructed random matrix block. Then, without affecting the embedding result of the second layer information, the matrix block elements are reused again, and the Hamming code is constructed with the column vector. Based on the error correction mechanism of the Hamming code, the third layer of information is embedded on the column vector and encoded by wet paper coding to realize the blind extraction. Finally, based on the recognition mechanism of the QR code, the random matrix block containing the secret information is fused with the carrier QR code, and the public information of the carrier QR code is used as the first-layer information. Compared with other schemes, the proposed scheme has the advantages of high information payload, low computational complexity, and strong robustness.

  • Evaluation of Deep Learning Methods Efficiency for Malicious and Benign
           System Calls Classification on the AWSCTD
    • Abstract: The increasing amount of malware and cyberattacks on a host level increases the need for a reliable anomaly-based host IDS (HIDS) that would be able to deal with zero-day attacks and would ensure low false alarm rate (FAR), which is critical for the detection of such activity. Deep learning methods such as convolutional neural networks (CNNs) and recurrent neural networks (RNNs) are considered to be highly suitable for solving data-driven security solutions. Therefore, it is necessary to perform the comparative analysis of such methods in order to evaluate their efficiency in attack classification as well as their ability to distinguish malicious and benign activity. In this article, we present the results achieved with the AWSCTD (attack-caused Windows OS system calls traces dataset), which can be considered as the most exhaustive set of host-level anomalies at the moment, including 112.56 million system calls from 12110 executable malware samples and 3145 benign software samples with 16.3 million system calls. The best results were obtained with CNNs with up to 90.0% accuracy for family classification and 95.0% accuracy for malicious/benign determination. RNNs demonstrated slightly inferior results. Furthermore, CNN tuning via an increase in the number of layers should make them practically applicable for host-level anomaly detection.

  • An API Semantics-Aware Malware Detection Method Based on Deep Learning
    • Abstract: The explosive growth of malware variants poses a continuously and deeply evolving challenge to information security. Traditional malware detection methods require a lot of manpower. However, machine learning has played an important role on malware classification and detection, and it is easily spoofed by malware disguising to be benign software by employing self-protection techniques, which leads to poor performance for existing techniques based on the machine learning method. In this paper, we analyze the local maliciousness about malware and implement an anti-interference detection framework based on API fragments, which uses the LSTM model to classify API fragments and employs ensemble learning to determine the final result of the entire API sequence. We present our experimental results on Ali-Tianchi contest API databases. By comparing with the experiments of some common methods, it is proved that our method based on local maliciousness has better performance, which is a higher accuracy rate of 0.9734.

  • Using XGBoost to Discover Infected Hosts Based on HTTP Traffic
    • Abstract: In recent years, the number of malware and infected hosts has increased exponentially, which causes great losses to governments, enterprises, and individuals. However, traditional technologies are difficult to timely detect malware that has been deformed, confused, or modified since they usually detect hosts before being infected by malware. Host detection during malware infection can make up for their deficiency. Moreover, the infected host usually sends a connection request to the command and control (C&C) server using the HTTP protocol, which generates malicious external traffic. Thus, if the host is found to have malicious external traffic, the host may be a host infected by malware. Based on the background, this paper uses HTTP traffic combined with eXtreme Gradient Boosting (XGBoost) algorithm to detect infected hosts in order to improve detection efficiency and accuracy. The proposed approach uses a template automatic generation algorithm to generate feature templates for HTTP headers and uses XGBoost algorithm to distinguish between malicious traffic and normal traffic. We conduct a performance analysis to demonstrate that our approach is efficient using dataset, which includes malware traffic from MALWARE-TRAFFIC-ANALYSIS.NET and normal traffic from UNSW-NB 15. Experimental results show that the detection speed is about 1859 HTTP traffic per second, and the detection accuracy reaches 98.72%, and the false positive rate is less than 1%.

  • SNI: Supervised Anonymization Technique to Publish Social Networks Having
           Multiple Sensitive Labels
    • Abstract: In social networks, preserving privacy and preserving correlation among sensitive labels are a matter of trade-off. This paper presents a supervised anonymization technique, SNI (social network immunization), to publish social networks having multiple sensitive labels with correlation. SNI publishes all sensitive labels without distorting them. It publishes sensitive labels along with innovative labels named “partial sensitive labels” in an immune graph and multiple supplementary trees. These graph and trees, by itself or with the combination of other objects, supply correlation among sensitive labels for membership analysis. We present a framework along with an algorithm for extracting the immune graph and supplementary trees. These graph and trees minimize the membership error rate for membership analysis. The practical evaluation of the cancer code label of individuals also indicates the effectiveness of the SNI method.

  • An Indistinguishably Secure Function Encryption Scheme
    • Abstract: In this work, we first design a function encryption scheme by using key encapsulation. We combine public key encryption with symmetric encryption to implement the idea of key encapsulation. In the key encapsulation, we use a key to turn a message (plaintext) into a ciphertext by symmetric encryption, and then we use public key encryption to turn this key into another ciphertext. In the design of function encryption scheme, we use the public key encryption system, symmetric encryption system, noninteractive proof system, indistinguishable obfuscator, and commitment scheme. Finally, we prove the indistinguishable security of our function encryption scheme.

  • Discovering Vulnerabilities in COTS IoT Devices through Blackbox Fuzzing
           Web Management Interface
    • Abstract: A novel approach for discovering vulnerability in commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) IoT devices is proposed in this paper, which will revolutionize the area. Unlike previous work, the web management interface in IoT was used to detect vulnerabilities by leveraging fuzzing technology. To validate and evaluate this scheme, a tool named WMIFuzzer was designed and implemented. There were also two challenges: (1) due to the diversity of web interface implementations, there were no existing seed messages for fuzzing this interface and it was inefficient while taking random messages to launch the fuzzing and (2) because of the highly structured seed message, fuzzing with byte-level mutation could conduce to be rejected by the device at an early stage. To address these challenges, a brute-force UI automation was designed to drive the web interface to generate initial seed messages automatically, as well as a weighted message parse tree (WMPT) was proposed to guide the mutation to generate mostly structure-valid messages. The extensive experimental results show that WMIFuzzer could achieve expected result while 10 vulnerabilities including 6 zero-days in 7 COTS IoT devices were discovered.

  • Laplace Input and Output Perturbation for Differentially Private Principal
           Components Analysis
    • Abstract: With the widespread application of big data, privacy-preserving data analysis has become a topic of increasing significance. The current research studies mainly focus on privacy-preserving classification and regression. However, principal component analysis (PCA) is also an effective data analysis method which can be used to reduce the data dimensionality, commonly used in data processing, machine learning, and data mining. In order to implement approximate PCA while preserving data privacy, we apply the Laplace mechanism to propose two differential privacy principal component analysis algorithms: Laplace input perturbation (LIP) and Laplace output perturbation (LOP). We evaluate the performance of LIP and LOP in terms of noise magnitude and approximation error theoretically and experimentally. In addition, we explore the variation of performance of the two algorithms with different parameters such as number of samples, target dimension, and privacy parameter. Theoretical and experimental results show that algorithm LIP adds less noise and has lower approximation error than LOP. To verify the effectiveness of algorithm LIP, we compare our LIP with other algorithms. The experimental results show that algorithm LIP can provide strong privacy guarantee and good data utility.

  • A Novel Construction of Constrained Verifiable Random Functions
    • Abstract: Constrained verifiable random functions (VRFs) were introduced by Fuchsbauer. In a constrained VRF, one can drive a constrained key from the master secret key , where S is a subset of the domain. Using the constrained key , one can compute function values at points which are not in the set S. The security of constrained VRFs requires that the VRFs’ output should be indistinguishable from a random value in the range. They showed how to construct constrained VRFs for the bit-fixing class and the circuit constrained class based on multilinear maps. Their construction can only achieve selective security where an attacker must declare which point he will attack at the beginning of experiment. In this work, we propose a novel construction for constrained verifiable random function from bilinear maps and prove that it satisfies a new security definition which is stronger than the selective security. We call it semiadaptive security where the attacker is allowed to make the evaluation queries before it outputs the challenge point. It can immediately get that if a scheme satisfied semiadaptive security, and it must satisfy selective security.

  • Data-Hiding Scheme Using Multidirectional Pixel-Value Differencing on
           Colour Images
    • Abstract: Data hiding is a technique that hides the existence of secret data from malicious attackers. In this paper, we propose a new data-hiding scheme using multidirectional pixel-value differencing, which can embed secret data in two directions or three directions on colour images. The cover colour image is divided into nonoverlapping blocks, and the pixels of each block are decomposed into R, G, and B channels. The pixels of each block perform regrouping, and then the minimum pixel value within each block is selected. The secret data can be embedded into two directions or three directions based on the minimum pixel value by using the difference value for the block. The pixel pairs with the embedded secret data are put separately into two stego images for secret data extraction on receiver sides. In the extraction process, the secret data can be extracted using the difference value of the two stego images. Experimental results show that the proposed scheme has the highest embedding capacity when the secret data are embedded into three directions. Experimental results also show that the proposed scheme has a high embedding capacity while maintaining the degree of distortion that cannot be perceived by human vision system for two directions.

  • SSLDetecter: Detecting SSL Security Vulnerabilities of Android
           Applications Based on a Novel Automatic Traversal Method
    • Abstract: Android usually employs the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol to protect the user’s privacy in network transmission. However, developers may misuse SSL-related APIs, which would lead attackers to steal user’s privacy through man-in-the-middle attacks. Existing methods based on static decompiling technology to detect SSL security vulnerabilities of Android applications cannot cope with the increasingly common packed applications. Meanwhile, dynamic analysis approaches have the disadvantages of excessive resource consumption and time-consuming. In this paper, we propose a dynamic method to solve this issue based on our novel automatic traversal model. At first, we propose several new traversal strategies to optimize the widget tree according to the user interface (UI) types and the interface state similarity. Furthermore, we develop a more granular traversal model by refining the traversal level from the Activity component to the Widget and implement a heuristic depth-first traversal algorithm in combination with our customized traversal strategy. In addition, the man-in-the-middle agent plug-in is extended to implement real-time attack test and return the attack results. Based on the above ideas, we have implemented SSLDetecter, an efficient automated detection system of Android application SSL security vulnerability. We apply it on multiple devices in parallel to detect 2456 popular applications in several mainstream application markets and find that 424 applications are suffering from SSL security vulnerabilities. Compared with the existing system SMV-HUNTER, the time efficiency of our system increases by 38% and the average detection rate increases by 6.39 percentage points, with many types of SSL vulnerabilities detected.

  • CCA Secure Public Key Encryption against After-the-Fact Leakage without
           NIZK Proofs
    • Abstract: In leakage resilient cryptography, there is a seemingly inherent restraint on the ability of the adversary that it cannot get access to the leakage oracle after the challenge. Recently, a series of works made a breakthrough to consider a postchallenge leakage. They presented achievable public key encryption (PKE) schemes which are semantically secure against after-the-fact leakage in the split-state model. This model puts a more acceptable constraint on adversary’s ability that the adversary cannot query the leakage of secret states as a whole but the functions of several parts separately instead of prechallenge query only. To obtain security against chosen ciphertext attack (CCA) for PKE schemes against after-the-fact leakage attack (AFL), existing works followed the paradigm of “double encryption” which needs noninteractive zero knowledge (NIZK) proofs in the encryption algorithm. We present an alternative way to achieve AFL-CCA security via lossy trapdoor functions (LTFs) without NIZK proofs. First, we formalize the definition of LTFs secure against AFL (AFLR-LTFs) and all-but-one variants (ABO). Then, we show how to realize this primitive in the split-state model. This primitive can be used to construct AFLR-CCA secure PKE scheme in the same way as the method of “CCA from LTFs” in traditional sense.

  • A Highly Effective Data Preprocessing in Side-Channel Attack Using
           Empirical Mode Decomposition
    • Abstract: Side-channel attacks on cryptographic chips in embedded systems have been attracting considerable interest from the field of information security in recent years. Many research studies have contributed to improve the side-channel attack efficiency, in which most of the works assume the noise of the encryption signal has a linear stable Gaussian distribution. However, their performances of noise reduction were moderate. Thus, in this paper, we describe a highly effective data-preprocessing technique for noise reduction based on empirical mode decomposition (EMD) and demonstrate its application for a side-channel attack. EMD is a time-frequency analysis method for nonlinear unstable signal processing, which requires no prior knowledge about the cryptographic chip. During the procedure of data preprocessing, the collected traces will be self-adaptably decomposed into sum of several intrinsic mode functions (IMF) based on their own characteristics. And then, meaningful IMF will be reorganized to reduce its noise and increase the efficiency of key recovering through correlation power analysis attack. This technique decreases the total number of traces for key recovering by 17.7%, compared to traditional attack methods, which is verified by attack efficiency analysis of the SM4 block cipher algorithm on the FPGA power consumption analysis platform.

  • Optimistic Fair Exchange in Cloud-Assisted Cyber-Physical Systems
    • Abstract: Recently, optimistic fair exchange in electronic commerce (e-commerce) or mobile commerce (m-commerce) has made great progress. However, new technologies create large amounts of data and it is difficult to handle them. Fortunately, with the assistance of cloud computing and big data, optimistic fair exchange of digital items in cyber-physical systems (CPSes) can be efficiently managed. Optimistic fair exchange in cloud-assisted CPSes mainly focuses on online data exchange in e-commerce or online contracts signing. However, there exist new forms of risks in the uncertain network environment. To solve the above problems, we use a new technique called verifiably encrypted identity-based signature (VEIS) to construct optimistic fair exchange in cloud-assisted CPSes. VEIS is an encrypted signature, and we can check the validity of the underlying signature without decrypting it. We introduce a robust arbitration mechanism to guarantee fairness of the exchange, and even the trusted third party (TTP) cannot get the original signatures of the exchange parties. And the TTP in our protocol is offline, which greatly improves the efficiency. Besides, we show that our protocol is secure, fair, and practical.

  • An Analysis of DDoS Attacks on the Instant Messengers
    • Abstract: Latest technologies of voice over IP (VoIP) and mobile messaging for smartphones messengers such as WhatsApp, Viber, Skype, etc., offer free-of-charge facilities of worldwide SMS, MMS, and voice calls to their users, unlike the traditional and expensive cellular or telephone networks’ services. Customers of the formerly mentioned messengers are estimated in millions because of the attractive features offered by them. However, these messengers face many cyber security threats and the required security features are either not available at all or are insufficient for efficiently countering the threats. Professionals working in the domain of cyber security are challenged by the devastating effects of distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks on all major platforms including Apple Macintosh, Windows, Unix, and Linux. In this paper, we demonstrate the effect of DDoS attack on the performance of an IRC server using a test bed. We use a game theoretic model to analyze the feasibility of DDoS attacks on the IRC platform, keeping in view the attacker’s objective. The analysis will help the security experts to propose appropriate countermeasures to reduce the attackers’ utility, thereby making it less attractive for those attackers to launch the attack.
