    Cryptanalysis of a Recent Two Factor Authentication Scheme

    Two factor authentication schemes which support a range of desirable attributes, have proven difficult to develop. In two existing schemes are successfully cryptanalysis, and a new scheme is proposed. Here the authors analyze this new scheme and point out some problems with it. In one sense it is not hard...

    A Novel Bandwidth Estimation Algorithm for IEEE 802.11 TCP Data Transmissions

    Efficient bandwidth estimation is significant for Quality of Service (QoS) of multimedia services in IEEE 802.11 WLANs. Many bandwidth estimation solutions have been developed such as probing-based technique and cross-layer scheme. However, these solutions either introduce additional traffic or require modification to the standard protocols. This paper develops a model...
