  • Novel Logic Circuits Dynamic Parameters Analysis
    Nicolae Galupa, Ras al Khaimah, UAE
    Combinational logic circuit timing analysis is an important issue that all designers need to address. The present paper presents a simple and compact analysis procedure. We follow the guidelines drawn by previous methods, but we shall define new time-dependent logic variables that help us improve their efficiency. By using the methodology suggested, we shall replace a very laborious technique (pure delay circuit + time constants method) with a simpler procedure that can pinpoint the specific conditions for a logic circuit’s anomalous behaviour within a few simple steps. Considering the logic function implemented the methodology presented will require analysis of only a limited number of situations/combinations to determine the presence of an anomalous behaviour. When anomalous behaviour is identified, the methodology provides a clear timing description.

    Ayman Wazwaz, Khalil Abu-haltam, Sawan Atawneh, Areej Idaes and Dalal Salem, Palestine Polytechnic University, Palestine
    Security System for Data using Steganography and Cryptography is a system that will be used to send secured documents through the internet. The system will consist of two parts: software and hardware. some of software will loaded into microcontrollers in order to increase its complexity and security. The data will be encrypted using the AES algorithm with a key from the Raspberry PI and hiding it in image using LSB algorithm, so the data will be invisible. The image will be transmitted and received through the internet, the receivers will extract the hidden data from the image and decrypt it to have the original data with the image. Complicating the steps of hiding and encryption will reduce the possiblity of intrusin of secured documents, and will increase security without affecting the users' behavior in secured documents exchange.

    Katarzyna Wegrzyn-Wolska, Lamine Bougueroua, Haichao Yu and Jing Zhong, Private University in Villejuif, France
    In recent years, Twitter Sentiment Analysis (TSA) has become a hot research topic. The target of this task is to analyse the sentiment polarity of the tweets. There are a lot of machine learning methods specifically developed to solve TSA problems, such as fully supervised method, distantly supervised method and combined method of these two. Considering the specialty of tweets that a limitation of 140 characters, emoticons have important effects on TSA. In this paper, we compare three emoticon pre-processing methods: emotion deletion (emoDel), emoticons 2-valued translation (emo2label) and emoticon explanation (emo2explanation). Then, we propose a method based on emoticon-weight lexicon, and conduct experiments based on Naive Bayes classifier, to validate the crucial role emoticons play on guiding emotion tendency in a tweet. Experiments on real data sets demonstrate that emoticons are vital to TSA.

  • Exploring the dynamic integration of heterogeneous services
    Makaziwe Makamba, Jabu Mtsweni and Enerst Ketcha Ngassam, UNISA, South Africa
    The proliferation of service enterprise environment has increased the development of heterogeneous services across the world. In today’s world, services are the key component of communication across the globe. Since Internet has stimulated the use of services, different services have been developed for different purposes. As the development of heterogeneous services is increasing, the challenges of integrating these heterogeneous services are enormous. Traditionally, integration is achieved by using gateways, which require considerable configuration effort. Many approaches and frameworks have been developed by different researchers to overcome these challenges, but up to date the challenges of integration heterogeneous services with minimal user-involvement still exist. In this paper, we are exploring the challenges of heterogeneous services and characteristics thereof with an aim of developing a seamless approach that will alleviate some of these challenges in near future. It is therefore of outmost important to understand the challenges and characteristics of heterogeneous services before developing a mechanism that could eliminate these challenges.
  • Key Management Scheme for Secure Group Communication in WSN With Multiple Groups
    H.S.Annapurna and M.Siddappa, Sri Siddhartha Academy of Higher Education, India
    Security is one of the inherent challenges in the area of Wireless Sensor Network (WSN). At present, majority of the security protocols involve massive iterations and complex steps of encryptions thereby giving rise to degradation of quality of service. Many WSN applications are based on secure group communication. In this paper, we have proposed a scheme for secure group key management with simultaneous multiple groups. The scheme uses a key-based approach for managing the groups and we show that membership change events can be handled with less storage, communication and computation cost. The scheme also offers authentication to the messages communicated within and among the groups.
  • Applying a Systematic Review on Adaptive Security for DSPL
    Mohamed AMOUD and Ounsa ROUDIES, Mohammed V University in Rabat, Morocco
    SProviding security and privacy to Dynamic Software Product Lines (DSPL) is very challenging. DSPL is becoming the system with high vulnerability in which the security is a difficult task and critical for it to operate. Adaptive security is able to automatically select security mechanisms and their parameters at runtime in order to preserve the required security level in a changing environment. This paper presents a literature review of security adaptation approaches for DSPL, and evaluates them in terms of how well they support critical security services and what level of adaptation they achieve. This work will be done following the Systematic Review approach. Our results concluded that the research field of security approaches for DSPL is still poor of methods and metrics for evaluating and comparing different techniques.
