    The Perils of Cross-Silo Deduplication: Trading User Security for Provider Storage Efficiency

    With the increasing interest in public cloud infrastructures, a crucial need has evolved for trustworthy remote data storage and processing. At the same time the increased demand for storage, from backup services, to cloud infrastructures has driven the use of deduplication to eliminate redundant data in the cloud as a...

    Matching With Externalities for Context-Aware Cell Association in Wireless Small Cell Networks

    In this paper, the authors propose a novel approach for user-cell association in wireless small cell networks that exploits previously unexplored context information extracted from the users' devices, i.e., the User Equipments (UEs). In particular, beyond including precise QoS requirements that account for the application usage of the UEs, their...

    On the Impact of Heterogeneous Backhauls on Coordinated Multipoint Transmission in Femtocell Networks

    The choice of a suitable backhaul constitutes one of the main performance bottlenecks in the emerging femtocell networks. In this paper, the authors study the impact of adopting a heterogeneous backhaul (i.e., wired or over-the-air) with realistic quality-of-service requirements on coherent Coordinated MultiPoint (CoMP) transmission in the downlink of femtocell...

    Federation Establishment Between CLEVER Clouds Through a SAML SSO Authentication Profile

    Cross-Cloud federation implies the establishment of a trust context between cloud platforms acting on different administrative domains and located in different places. The main advantage of federation is that clouds can set inter-domain communications so that they can benefit of new business opportunities such as the enlargement of their virtual...

    AAA in a Cloud-Based Virtual DIME Network Architecture (DNA)

    The design of a cloud architecture can be difficult according the business logic complexity which Cloud Service Providers (SPs) want to achieve. This paper describes a possible solution for simplifying the design of cloud-based services exploiting a DIME Network Architecture (DNA). More specifically, exploiting the signaling channel and FCAPS of...
