  • Link-renaming technique for efficiently increasing similarity among SDN entries 

    Almohaimeed, Abdulrahman; Asaduzzaman, Abu; Chidella, Kishore K.; Shahin, Firas (IEEE, 2019)
    Software-defined networking (SDN) is an evolved concept to network's architecture with a centralized form of network controlling. The centralized nature of SDN has raised concerns regarding the high demand for communication ...
  • MR-Anonymization: A relationship-based privacy model 

    Almohaimeed, Abdulrahman; Gampa, Srikanth (IEEE, 2019)
    There are several reasons for organizations to publish or share their data. Therefore, ensuring the privacy of individual information is a serious issue. A typical medical organization must publish data about thousands of ...
  • Kraus operator formalism for quantum multiplexer operations for arbitrary two-qubit mixed states 

    Udayakumar, Pavithra; Kumar, Preethika (Springer, 2019-12)
    The dynamics of open quantum systems are described using a set of operators called Kraus operators. In this paper, we show how to find system parameters for a closed system of two qubits undergoing quantum multiplexer ...
  • Introduction: Selfie Biometrics

  • Mobile user re-authentication using clothing information 

    Nguyen, Hoang Mark; Rattani, Ajita; Derakhshani, Reza R. (Springer London, 2019-09-22)
    Biometric authentication has become a popular alternative to passwords on mobile devices. However, most implementations do not incorporate any mechanisms to ascertain whether the originally authenticated user is still in ...
  • The Degraded Gaussian many-access wiretap channel 

    Chou, Remi; Yener, Aylin (IEEE, 2019-07)
    The Gaussian multiple-access wiretap channel when the number of transmitters grows unbounded and at most linearly with the blocklength is studied. Its capacity region is characterized when the eavesdropper channel is ...
  • Biometric systems with multiuser access structures 

    Chou, Remi (IEEE, 2019-07)
    We propose a model for biometric systems with a multiuser access structure, where after enrollment only predefined authorized sets of participants are allowed to access the system upon presenting their biometrics. Two types ...
