Analysis of Researcher Co-authorship Network

This work analyzes the co-authorship of science papers published by university teachers, and then constructs are searcher co-authorship network and characterizes the network by some varying quantities: the clustering coefficient, the average degree, diameter, average distance and components. Consequently, this paper visualizes the researcher co-authorship network which can lead to a better understanding of the applications of information visualization […]

Extending OpenFlow for SDN-enabled synchronous Ethernet networks

There is an increasing need of synchronization and clock frequency distribution in core and accessnetworks. Synchronous Ethernet (SyncE) is a technology that is able to distribute clock frequency over Ethernet networks, while keeping scalability and reduced costs. Software-Defined Networking (SDN) is another emerging technology that is changing the landscape of network management by separating the control and […]

Friendship influence on mobile behavior of location based social network users

In mobile computing research area, it is highly desirable to understand the characteristics of user movement so that the user friendly location aware services could be rendered effectively. Location based social networks (LBSNs) have flourished recently and are of great potential for movement behavior exploration and data-driven application design. While there have been some efforts on user check-in movement […]

RAON: A recursive abstraction of SDN control-plane for large-scale production networks

In this invited paper, we introduce RAON: a recursive abstraction of SDN control-plane for large-scale production networks. RAON leverages a recursion, where the solution to a problem depends on solutions to smaller instances of the same problem, and organizes them in hierarchical domains. To this end, RAON abstracts the details of the underlying network as a […]

A Survey of Security Attacks in Information-Centric Networking

Information-centric networking (ICN) is a new communication paradigm that focuses on content retrieval from the network regardless of storage location or physical representation of this content. In ICN, securing the content itself is much more important than securing the infrastructure or the end-points. To achieve the security goals in this new paradigm, it is crucial to have a comprehensive […]

Human group sensing and networking: Scenario development and feasibility study

Vital signs obtained from people playing various types of sports can be exploited not only for diagnosing their physical conditions but also for learning the best practice to be followed to enhance their sporting abilities and skills. In this paper, focusing on a framework to collect vital data from a human group consisting of a […]

A design of 10 Gigabit Capable Passive Optical Network(XG-PON1) architecture based on Software Defined Network(SDN)

A SDN-based XG-PON1 Network Architecture is proposed. A XG-PON1 includes many management technologies that is ONU Management, DHCP Server Management, AAA Server Management, OLT Switch Control, PIU(PON Interface Unit) Control, and OMCI. We proposed a SDN-based XG-PON1 Architecture to manage these functions.

A feasible method to combat against DDoS attack in SDN network

In Software Defined Network, the controller is so vulnerable to flooding attack. By injecting spoofed request packets continuously, attackers make a burdensome process to the controller, cause bandwidth occupation in the controller-switch channel, and overload the flow table in switch. The final target of attackers is to downgrade or even shutdown the stability and quality of service […]

Has Time Come to Switch From Duty-Cycled MAC Protocols to Wake-Up Radio for Wireless Sensor Networks?

Duty-cycled Medium Access Control (MAC) protocols certainly improve the energy efficiency of wireless networks. However, most of these protocols still suffer from severe degrees of overhearing and idle listening. These two issues prevent optimum energy usage, a crucial aspect in energy-constrained wireless networks such as wireless sensor networks (WSNs). Wake-up radio (WuR) systems drastically reduce these problems by completely […]

An extended SDN architecture for network function virtualization with a case study on intrusion prevention

In conventional software-defined networking (SDN), a controller classifies the traffic redirected from a switch to determine the path to network function virtualization (NFV) modules. The redirection generates a large volume of control-plane traffic. We propose an extended SDN architecture to reduce the traffic overhead to the controller for providing NFV. The extension includes two-layer traffic classification […]
