    Survivable Virtual Infrastructure Mapping in Virtualized Data Centers

    In a virtualized data center, survivability can be enhanced by creating redundant VMs as backup for VMs such that after VM or server failures, affected services can be quickly switched over to backup VMs. To enable flexible and efficient resource management, the authors propose to use a service-aware approach in...

    Collaborative Learning Through Wireless Grids

    In this paper, the authors describe wireless grids, an emerging technology that enables ad hoc sharing of resources (such as screen, services and microphone) on edge devices (such as mobile Internet devices, laptops and mobile phones). As wireless devices have become common, and "Smart," wireless grids have become practical. To...

    A Witness-Based Approach for Data Fusion Assurance in Wireless Sensor Networks

    In wireless sensor networks, sensor nodes are spread randomly over the coverage area to collect information of interest. Data fusion is used to process these collected information before they are sent to the base station, the observer of the sensor network. The authors study the security of the data fusion...

    Balanced-Energy Sleep Scheduling Scheme for High Density Cluster-Based Sensor Networks

    In order to conserve battery power in very dense sensor networks, some sensor nodes may be put into the sleep state while other sensor nodes remain active for the sensing and communication tasks. However, determining which of the sensor nodes should be put into the sleep state is non-trivial. As...

    Inter-Domain LSP Setup Using Bandwidth Management Points

    Bandwidth Management Points (BMP) are a necessity to manage the intra and inter-domain resources in the Internet. In this paper the authors propose a way to setup inter-domain Label Switched Path (LSP) with the help of a BMP in a MultiProtocol Label Switching (MPLS) over Diff-serv network. They use extended...

    Outsourcing and Backsourcing Under Demand Uncertainty

    This paper examines the value that firms create by building outsourcing and backsourcing flexibility while operating under demand uncertainty. Unlike earlier studies, it provides an analytical investigation regarding the probability of switching to the outsourcing option and the expected time to make a switch. Employing a simplified real options model,...

    Wireless Grids or Personal Infrastructure: Policy Implications of an Emergent Open Standard

    A wireless grid is characterized by the ad-hoc dynamic sharing of physical and virtual resources among heterogeneous devices. This paper reviews wireless grids standards development, in which the authors are engaged, and draws policy lessons from the emergent phenomenon to consider if they apply more generally for open Internet-driven innovation...

    A Model of Wireless Broadband Diffusion in Latin America

    Countries in Latin America have lagged behind much of the world in telephone lines, but they have made up this gap through cellular networks. The limited wired infrastructure means that broadband access will more likely be achieved through wireless technology. In this paper, the authors argue that Latin America will...

    How Online Gatekeepers Guard Our View - News Portals' Inclusion and Ranking of Media and Events

    This study examines two news portals, Google News and Yahoo News, using a theoretical framework that incorporates the theory of network gatekeeping and the notion of search engine bias. The study tests three hypotheses about the relationship between dominance of the news media, proximity of news events to the U.S....

    Developing Inland China: How Coastal FDI And Export Activity Matters

    This paper investigates whether coastal FDI and export activity have regional spillovers into inland regions in China and how these spillovers depend on different types of FDI and export activity. Applying 2SLS fixed effect models to two provincial level datasets, one for 1993-2008 and the other for 2002 - 2007;...

    The Effective Target Of The Social Security Disability Benefits Reform Act Of 1984

    A substantial portion of the rise in Social Security Disability Insurance rolls since 1984 has been attributed to the Social Security Disability Benefits Reform Act. Using data from the National Health Interview Survey, the author examines whom the Act effectively targeted. The analysis shows that new enrollees were demonstrably taller...

    Capacity Bounds for Two-Hop Interference Networks

    This paper considers a two-hop interference network, where two users transmit independent messages to their respective receivers with the help of two relay nodes. The transmitters do not have direct links to the receivers; instead, two relay nodes serve as intermediaries between the transmitters and receivers. Each hop, one from...

    Memento: A Framework for Hardening Web Applications

    The authors propose a generic framework called Memento for systematically hardening web applications. Memento models a web application's behavior using a Deterministic Finite Automata (DFA), where each server-side script is a state, and state transitions are triggered by HTTP requests. They use this DFA to defend against Cross-Site Request Forgery...

    The Effect Of Disability Insurance On Health Investment: Evidence From The VA Disability Compensation

    The author examines whether individuals respond to monetary incentives to detect latent medical conditions. The effect is identified by a policy that deemed diabetes associated with herbicide exposure a compensable disability under the veteran administration's disability compensation program. Since a diagnosis is a requisite for benefit eligibility, and nearly one-third...
