    Aging in Biometrics: An Experimental Analysis on On-Line Signature

    The first consistent and reproducible evaluation of the effect of aging on dynamic signature is reported. Experiments are carried out on a database generated from two previous datasets which were acquired, under very similar conditions, in 6 sessions distributed in a 15 month time span. Three different systems, representing the...

    On Cloud Nine? an Integrative Risk Management Framework for Cloud Computing

    Cloud computing is heralded to be one of the most significant information technology developments in recent years. There is widespread agreement that the adoption of cloud resources and capabilities is poised for strong growth into the future. Nevertheless, there is paucity of research concerning the perceived risks that affect the...

    Wireless Sensor Network Nodes: Security and Deployment in the Niger-Delta Oil and Gas Sector

    Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) is tending towards becoming a complete solution in communication protocols, embedded systems and low-power implementations. However, the resource constraints which includes, limited communication range, limited energy, limited computing power, limited bandwidth and the fear of intruders have limited the WSN applications. Since lightweight computational nodes that...

    Adaptive Negotiation in Managing Wireless Sensor Networks

    The allocation of resources to tasks in an efficient manner is a key problem in computer science. One important application domain for solutions to this class of problem is the allocation of sensor resources for environmental monitoring, surveillance, or similar sensing tasks. In real-world problem domains, the problem is compounded...

    Bootstrapping Swift Trust Evaluations in Ad-Hoc Groups

    Modern coalition operations often necessitate ad-hoc collaborations between diverse military and civilian organisations with limited or no prior experience of working together. Trust is vital within these groups, as members must rely on their peers to perform as expected, and learn to identify untrustworthy partners. However, trust is not easily...

    Class0-of-Service Mapping for QoS: A Statistical Signaturebased Approach to IP Traffic Classification

    The ability to provide different Quality of Service (QoS) guarantees to traffic from different applications is a highly desired feature for many IP network operators, particularly for enterprise networks. Although various mechanisms exist for providing QoS in the network, QoS is yet to be widely deployed. The authors believe that...

    Resource Determination and Allocation in Sensor Networks: A Hybrid Approach

    Many organizations depend on critical sensory information to achieve their tasks. As the number of those tasks increase, efficient determination and allocation of required resources in sensor networks become crucial. In this paper, the authors propose means to describe tasks semantically with their requirements and constraints so that software agents...

    The Credit Crunch: Neo-liberalism, Financialisation And The Gekkoisation Of Society

    This paper offers a broad overview and analysis of some of the main causes and consequences of the current economic crisis. While attempting to flag up some of the key continuities between the conditions contributing to the current crisis and those that produced the 'Great crash' of 1929, it is...

    Flexible Resource Assignment in Sensor Networks: A Hybrid Reasoning Approach

    Today, sensing resources are the most valuable assets of critical tasks (e.g., border monitoring). Although there are various types of assets available, each with different capabilities, only a subset of these assets is useful for a specific task. This is due to the varying information needs of tasks. This gives...
