A cluster-based dynamic load balancing middleware protocol for grids
We describe a hierarchical dynamic load balancing protocol for Grids. The Grid consists of clusters and each cluster is represented by a coordinator. Each coordinator first attempts to balance the load in its cluster and ...
Merging clustering algorithms in mobile Ad Hoc networks
Clustering is a widely used approach to ease implementation of various problems such as routing and resource management in mobile ad hoc networks (MANET)s. We first look at minimum spanning tree(MST) based algorithms and ...
Performance evaluation of cluster-based target tracking protocols for wireless sensor networks
Target tracking is an important application type for wireless sensor networks (WSN). Recently, various approaches [1-11] are proposed to maintain the accurate tracking of the targets as well as low energy consumption. ...
Security arguments for the UM key agreement protocol in the NIST SP 800-56A standard
(ACM Press, 2008)
The Unified Model (UM) key agreement protocol is an efficient Diffie-Hellman scheme that has been included in many cryptographic standards, most recently in the NIST SP 800-56A standard. The UM protocol is believed to ...
Strongly secure authenticated key exchange without NAXOS' approach
LaMacchia, Lauter and Mityagin  proposed the extended Canetti-Krawczyk (eCK) model and an AKE protocol, called NAXOS. Unlike previous security models, the adversary in the eCK model is allowed to obtain ephemeral secret ...
