    Virtual Machines Security in IaaS Platform

    Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud computing model has become a compelling solution that enables customers to rent their hardware, as needed, in the form of Virtual Machines (VMs). These VMs are hosted by the cloud provider and controlled by the cloud consumer, making security management in the IaaS platform a shared reasonability...

    Congestion Control With Multi-Packet Feedback

    Many congestion control protocols use explicit feedback from the network to achieve high performance. Most of these either require more bits for feedback than are available in the IP header or incur performance limitations due to inaccurate congestion feedback. There has been recent interest in protocols which obtain high resolution...

    Secure ARP and Secure DHCP Protocols to Mitigate Security Attacks

    For network computers to communicate to one another, they need to know one another's IP address and MAC address. Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) is developed to find the Ethernet address that map to a specific IP address. The source computer broadcasts the request for Ethernet address and eventually the target...
