Secure IoT Platform for Industrial Control Systems

Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems, are part of industrial control system (ICS), have been playing crucial roles in real-time industrial automation and controls. Through the evolution of 3rd generation, or networks based system, SCADA systems are connected to almost types of networks such as wired, wireless, and cellular and satellite communication, but security [...]

Flexible Internet-of-Things Platform using Docker

It is common for Internet of Things (IoT) devices to behave as client and servers. As IoT devices require various features based on their roles in a service, IoT manufacturers are facing difficulties in composing various IoT features in a device. Containers are helpful to IoT devices managing required features and orchestrating its behavior through [...]

A Workload Prediction Approach using Models Stacking based on Recurrent Neural Network and Autoencoder

Workload prediction in computing systems like Cloud and Grid is an essential prerequisite for successful load balancing and achieving service-level agreements. However, since workloads in different systems and architectures have varied characteristics, providing an accurate single prediction model can be very challenging. Therefore, in this paper we have designed and implemented a model of stacking [...]

The Privacy Exposure Problem in Mobile Location-based Services

Mobile location-based services (LBSs) empowered by mobile crowdsourcing provide users with context- aware intelligent services based on user locations. As smartphones are capable of collecting and disseminating massive user location-embedded sensing information, privacy preservation for mobile users has become a crucial issue. This paper proposes a metric called privacy exposure to quantify the notion of [...]

Leverage a Trust Service Platform for Data Usage Control in Smart City

In the Internet of Thing, data is almost collected, aggregated and analyzed without human intervention by machine-to-machine communications resulting in raising serious challenges on access control. Particularly in Smart City ecosystems in which multi-modal data comes from heterogeneous sources, data owners cannot imagine how their data is used to extract sensitive information. Thus, there is [...]

We Hear Your Activities through Wi-Fi Signals

In this paper, we focus on the problem of human activity recognition without identification of the individuals in a scene. We consider using Wi-Fi signals to detect certain human mobility behaviors such as stationary, walking, or running. The main objective is to successfully detect these behaviors for the individuals and based on that enable detection [...]

Study on Enhancing National Defense Security Based on RFID and Internet of Things Technology

Radio-frequency identification (RFID) is being used in various fields as a technology for identifying objects (people, things etc.) using radio frequencies. In the past, there was an attempt to apply RFID into national defence, but failed to spread RFID in the defence field because of some limitations of RFID in a specific situation (e.g., low [...]
