    Performance Improvement of Virtualization Sensitive Instruction Emulation by Instruction Decoding at Compile Time

    Shin Dong Ha , 윤경언 | 2012, 17(2) | pp.1~11 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    Recently, we have seen several implementations that virtualize the ARM architecture. Since the current ARM architecture is not possible to be virtualized using the traditional technique called "trap-and-emulation", we usually detect all virtualization sensitive instructions during the run-time of a guest kernel and emulate them virtually rather than executing them directly. The emulation for virtualization is usually implemented either by binary translation or interpretation. Our research is about how to improve the performance of emulation for virtualization based on interpretation. The interpretation usually requires a few steps: instruction fetching, instruction decoding and instruction executing. In this paper, we propose a method that decodes all virtualization sensitive instructions during the compilation time of a guest kernel and reduces the time required for interpretation during the run time of the guest kernel. Our method provides both implementation simplicity and performance improvement of emulation for virtualization based on interpretation.

    Jihua Zhao , 하영 , Soon-Jo Lee and 1 other persons | 2012, 17(2) | pp.13~21 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    Mobile data caching is usually used as an effective way to improve the speed of local transaction processing and reduce server load. In mobile database environment, due to its characters - low bandwidth, excessive latency and intermittent network, caching is especially crucial. A lot of mobile data caching strategies have been proposed to handle these problems over the last few years. However, with smart phone widely application these approaches cannot support vast data requirements efficiently. In this paper, to make full use of cache data, lower wireless transmission quantity and raise transaction success rate, we design a new mobile data caching synchronization strategy based on in-demand and replacement priority. We experimentally verify that our techniques significantly reduce quantity of wireless transmission and improve transaction success rate, especially when mobile client request a large amount of data.

    최창수 , Seo Jeong-Man , Jun Byoung Min | 2012, 17(2) | pp.31~40 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    Iris recognition is a biometric technology which can identify a person using the iris pattern. It is important for the iris recognition system to extract the feature which is invariant to changes in iris patterns. Those changes can be occurred by the influence of lights, changes in the size of the pupil, and head tilting. In this paper, we propose a novel method based on Zernike Moment which is robust to rotations of iris patterns. we utilized a selection of Zernike moments for the fast and effective recognition by selecting global optimum moments and local optimum moments for optimal matching of each iris class. The proposed method enables high-speed feature extraction and feature comparison because it requires no additional processing to obtain the rotation invariance, and shows comparable performance to the well-known previous methods.

    Abstract PDF
    In modern society, the necessity of Color and Psychology Therapy is increasing for psychologically calm children who are less taken care by their parents in busy daily life, and helping them adapt to the environment. Therefore, we need to understand sensitivity status of children with paintings that they draw. Currently, most of empirical studies on their sensitivities are based on psychological and engineering perspectives. This study was designed to provide a system to extract psychological status of children from their pictures by distinguishing harmony of colors using information of solid colors and arrangement of colors in the image space. For achieving this research purpose, first of all, sensitivity database was constructed based on the image space of colors. Then, using the K-Means algorithm, the image was clustered and a wide amount of color values were divided into groups. After that, children's sensitivities were extracted by matching groups of color values with database, and color psychological status of children was observed using the color distribution chart in their paintings.

    An Enhanced Spatial Fuzzy C-Means Algorithm for Image Segmentation

    Tung X. Truong , 김종면 | 2012, 17(2) | pp.49~57 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    Conventional fuzzy c-means (FCM) algorithms have achieved a good clustering performance. However, they do not fully utilize the spatial information in the image and this results in lower clustering performance for images that have low contrast, vague boundaries, and noises. To overcome this issue, we propose an enhanced spatial fuzzy c-means (ESFCM) algorithm that takes into account the influence of neighboring pixels on the center pixel by assigning weights to the neighbors in a 3x3 square window. To evaluate between the proposed ESFCM and various FCM based segmentation algorithms, we utilized clustering validity functions such as partition coefficient (), partition entropy (), and Xie-Bdni function (). Experimental results show that the proposed ESFCM outperforms other FCM based algorithms in terms of clustering validity functions.

    A Mobile P2P Streaming Architecture for Efficient Handover

    김상진 , 김은삼 , HoYoung Hwang | 2012, 17(2) | pp.95~103 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    In this paper, we propose an efficient mobile P2P streaming architecture to minimize playback jitters in P2P overlay networks based on wired/wireless networks even though mobile peers experience the handover. In this architecture, mobile peers receive data in a push manner to maximize the data receiving speed before and after the handover. In addition, they can maintain the buffering above a specific level through handover prediction and re-selection of neighbor peers. By simulation experiments, we show that our proposed architecture can improve the performance significantly when the handover occurs compared to the existing mesh structure.

    A Sextant Cluster Based Monitoring on Secure Data Aggregation and Filtering False Data in Wireless Sensor Networks

    Anuparp Boonsongsrikul , 박승규 , Shin, Seung-Hun | 2012, 17(2) | pp.119~126 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    Local monitoring is an effective technique in securing data of wireless sensor networks. Existing solutions require high communication cost for detecting false data and this results in a network lifetime being shortened. This paper proposes novel techniques of monitoring based secure data aggregation and filtering false data in wireless sensor networks. The aim is to reduce energy consumption in securing data aggregation. An aggregator and its monitoring node perform data aggregation in a 60o sextant cluster. By checking Message Authentication Codes (MAC), aggregation data will be dropped by a forward aggregator if data aggregated by the aggregator and data monitored by the monitoring node are inconsistent. The simulation shows that the proposed protocol can reduce the amount of average energy consumption about 64% when comparing with the Data Aggregation and Authentication protocol (DAA)[1]. Additionally, the network lifetime of the proposed protocol is 283% longer than that of DAA without any decline in data integrity.

    Jaechan Moon , SEONG JE CHO | 2012, 17(2) | pp.127~137 | number of Cited : 10
    Abstract PDF
    Recently, as modern Internet uses mashups, Web 3.0, JavaScript/AJAX widely, the rate at which new vulnerabilities are being discovered is increasing rapidly. It can subsequently introduce big security threats. In order to efficiently mitigate these web application vulnerabilities and security threats, it is needed to rank vulnerabilities based on severity and consider the severe vulnerabilities during a specific phase of software development lifecycle (SDLC) for web applications. In this paper, we have first verified whether the risk rating methodology of OWASP Top 10 vulnerabilities is a reasonable one or not by analyzing the vulnerability data of web applications in the US National Vulnerability Database (NVD). Then, by inspecting the vulnerability information of web applications based on OWASP Top-10 2010 list and CWE (Common Weakness Enumeration) directory, we have mapped the web-related entries of CWE onto the entries of OWASP Top-10 2010 and prioritized them. We have also presented which phase of SDLC is associated with each vulnerability entry. Using this approach, we can prevent or mitigate web application vulnerabilities and security threats efficiently.

    Probabilistic filtering for a biological knowledge discovery system with text mining and automatic

    이희진 , Jong-Cheol Park | 2012, 17(2) | pp.139~147 | number of Cited : 2
    Abstract PDF
    In this paper, we discuss the structure of biological knowledge discovery system based on text mining and automatic inference. Given a set of biology documents, the system produces a new hypothesis in an integrated manner. The text mining module of the system first extracts the ‘event’ information of predefined types from the documents. The inference module then produces a new hypothesis based on the extracted results. Such an integrated system can use information more up-to-date and diverse than other automatic knowledge discovery systems use. However, for the success of such an integrated system, the precision of the text mining module becomes crucial, as any hypothesis based on a single piece of false positive information would highly likely be erroneous. In this paper, we propose a probabilistic filtering method that filters out false positives from the extraction results. Our proposed method shows higher performance over an occurrence-based baseline method.

    A Study on the Efficiency of Join Operation On Stream Data Using Sliding Windows

    양영휴 | 2012, 17(2) | pp.149~157 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    In this thesis, the problem of computing approximate answers to continuous sliding-window joins over data streams when the available memory may be insufficient to keep the entire join state. One approximation scenario is to provide a maximum subset of the result, with the objective of losing as few result tuples as possible. An alternative scenario is to provide a random sample of the join result, e.g., if the output of the join is being aggregated. It is shown formally that neither approximation can be addressed effectively for a sliding-window join of arbitrary input streams. Previous work has addressed only the maximum-subset problem, and has implicitly used a frequency based model of stream arrival. There exists a sampling problem for this model. More importantly, it is shown that a broad class of applications for which an age-based model of stream arrival is more appropriate, and both approximation scenarios under this new model are addressed. Finally, for the case of multiple joins being executed with an overall memory constraint, an algorithm for memory allocation across the join that optimizes a combined measure of approximation in all scenarios considered is provided.

    Security Analysis and Improvements of a Biometrics-based User Authentication Scheme Using Smart Cards

    Younghwa An | 2012, 17(2) | pp.159~166 | number of Cited : 3
    Abstract PDF
    Many biometrics-based user authentication schemes using smart cards have been proposed to improve the security weaknesses in user authentication system. In 2010, Chang et al. proposed an improved biometrics-based user authentication scheme without concurrency system which can withstand forgery attack, off-line password guessing attack, replay attack, etc. In this paper, we analyze the security weaknesses of Chang et al.’s scheme and we have shown that Chang et al.’s scheme is still insecure against man-in-the-middle attack, off-line biometrics guessing attack, and does not provide mutual authentication between the user and the server. And we proposed the improved scheme to overcome these security weaknesses, even if the secret information stored in the smart card is revealed. As a result, the proposed scheme is secure for the user authentication attack, the server masquerading attack, the man-in-the-middle attack, and the off-line biometrics guessing attack, does provide the mutual authentication between the user and the remote server. And, in terms of computational complexities, the proposed scheme is more effective than Chang et al.’s scheme.

    Jongwook Yoon | 2012, 17(2) | pp.215~224 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    This study performs an exploratory investigation of the needs of the customers who use academic information service from a research institute, K, that provides information services for domestic academic institutions of natural science and technology. K institute is planning customized services in order to improve customer satisfaction on the academic information service. And therefore, the institute begins the research on customer needs analysis and customer segmentation. The research is regarded as well-timed, because CRM implementation in public organizations has been activated recently. Data mining and data warehousing techniques were used for pilot analyses. For the purpose of customer segmentation, a mixed segmentation model, which adds product life cycle concept to the 'balanced customer segmentation' model, which in turn considers the value of customers from the organizational viewpoint and the value of organizations from the customer's viewpoint, simultaneously, was applied. The result of investigation indicated that, in the case of K, 'balanced customer segmentation' and 'contents reach approach' which uses data warehouse/OLAP, rather than those customer segmentation techniques that are often used within the industry, are the more potent ways of approach. This exploratory case study is expected to provide a useful guideline for 'deriving an organizationally unique CRM model' that recently is one of the hot topics in the CRM area.
