Application Virtualization in Resource-Constrained Environments

Dr Sawtantar Singh Khurmi

The mobile users are capable to offload computationally-expensive processing (such as face recognition, language translation, speech and image recognition) from a mobile device onto more powerful servers. This enables cloud-based computing, saves battery power of the device in resource constraint environments. A technique used for dynamically scaling the computing resources of resource-limited mobile devices by exploiting a fixed computing infrastructure at nearby locations is known as Cyber-Foraging.

This time we will explore the research conducted on cloudletbased cyber foraging. The concept of Cloudlets was created by Mahadev Satyanarayanan of Carnegie Mellon University’s School of Computer Science using Virtual Machine (VM) synthesis to provision cloudlets. In this technology, a file called an “application overlay” is transferred during runtime from the mobile device to the cloudlet. The VM synthesis involves large application overlay files, which can be costly to transfer in terms of battery and network bandwidth consumption in mobile and edge environments. The application virtualization uses a similar approach that is used in operating system. We will be discussing implementation of application virtualization here, its benefits, drawbacks and future challenges in advanced mobile systems.   Full Paper

Aashima, Vishal Kumar Arora

With the advancement of wireless networks and their equipments in our today’s life, they have become an important part of our routine work. But the high availability of such devices and lack in the security measures of their routing protocols, they are alluring a number of attackers to intrude. One of the severe attack is Wormhole Attack that is the topic of discussion in this paper.

Numerous solutions have been proposed for their detection but every technique comes with its pros and cons. In this paper, we have detected and prevented the attack using DSR protocol but with doing little modification to the protocol functionality. The information from the routing table is used for the detection of wormhole links and along that link, another security mechanism is applied that confirms the presence of wormhole nodes at the end. This approach has been applied to DSR protocol and makes possible the detection and prevention of wormhole nodes and attacks. Simulation results further verify the presence of wormhole nodes in the network.   Full Paper

P Srikanth, Ch. Prem Kumar, Shivam Rawat

To construct the “super-virtualization architecture” from the preexisting layouts of the current virtualization server management. In this server management each VMM’s having its own administrator and these VMM’s are interconnected by fabric connection and information is delivered to the client via router, with this type of architecture so many security issues are occurred and also VMM’s are communicating with each other via fabric connection. These issues can be solved by using the proposed architecture i.e. “super virtualization”. In super virtualization each VM can communicate with each other via private virtual LAN’s and every VM can forward the data to automatic computing. Autonomic systems raise additional security challenges, including the establishment of a trustworthy system identity, automatically handling changes in system configuration and interconnections, and greatly increased configuration complexity. On the other hand, the techniques of autonomic computing offer the Promise of making systems more secure by effectively and automatically enforcing high level security policies for both centralized and distributed server management.   Full Paper


Image Denoising By Multi-Pass Median Filter Based on Decision Based Expanded Window

Reva Sethi, Vishal Kumar Arora

In this paper we proposed a new multi-pass median filterwhich is based on decision based expanded window to remove the salt and pepper noise. Proposed filter works on noisy pixel by using a window around that noisy pixel without affecting noise free pixels. At low noise density noisy pixel is replaced with trimmed median value of the window. Window is expanded if it contains three forth noisy pixels of total pixels of window to find more noise free pixels, in order to prefer median filter instead of mean filter at high noise density. We also preferred multiple scanning of same image, that increases the probability of noise free pixel at high noise density and median filters are in use which are effective and provide better results.   Full Paper

Role Based Access Control with Integrated Authentication and Ontology to Detect and Prevent DDOS Attacks

Ravneet Kaur, Manish Mahajan

Cloud computing is a model that is used for enabling convenient, on-demand network to a shared pool of configurable computing resources that can be instantly provisioned and released with minimum management effort or service provider interaction. Access control has vital significance in cloud computing, where data files are stored in the cloud server. In current schemes, the cloud server typically needs to consult the backend authorization server, when processing access control request from data users.

This will put a heavy burden on the authorization server, and therefore introduce Denial-of-Service attack on it. The results show that our scheme is quite improved, because it separates the authorization process from the access control process. By doing so, the burden on the authorization server is reduced, and the Denial-of-Service attacks on it during access control process are avoided. Also we have added the ontology concept with the RBAC to enhance the access control power.   Full Paper

Variance Localization With Local and Global Mean for Adjusting Image Contrast

Manjeet Singh Walia, Manish Mahajan

In Medical imaging when we take the example for specific body parts such as lungs, spine, abdomen, lower or upper extremities, each image come with different dose due to presence of hard and soft tissues. Since dose parameter of radiations is different thus it makes the different impact on soft and hard tissues that may lead to have a poor image contrast due to this the images may lead to overexposure & underexposure. The image so obtained would not have similar contrast in over all images. Thus image has different shades in different parts. Radiologist faces the problem to diagnose the proper disease. So image contrast need to be balanced over the entire image in such a manner so that image looks with balanced contrast. Basically image contrast is to modify attributes of an image to make it more suitable for a given task and for a specific observer. Most of the technique is very suitable when image come with balanced brightness. But in case of Digital X ray radiations, soft and hard tissues make different impact. Thus a method is required that could calculate the global attributes and local attribute and based on the selection of local with respect to global it balances the contrast.

In the current paper we are going to implement the new method of image contrast enhancement that uses the concept of Global mean and global variance by using localization functions. The proposed has been applied on complex (medical) images and is checked for different metrics such as NAE, quality Index and structural content.   Full Paper

A Novel Survey on an Intelligent and Efficient Load Balancing Techniques for Cloud Computing

Kamlesh Kumar, Somil Kumar Gupta, Govind Singh

Cloud computing is a currentbuzzword in the market. It is an emerging technology now a days which focus onthe distributed database system which generally concern with the unavailability of the global clock as well as a shared memory and is totally correlated with internet as a service.

Central issue behind cloud is an effective load balancing technique. Load balancing is one of the main challenges in cloud computing which is required to distribute the dynamic workload across multiple nodes to improve both resource utilization as well as job response time while avoiding the situation where some nodes are heavily loaded and some nodes are in idle position. So we distribute the workloads across multiple computer clusters, network links, Central Processing Unit or other resources. The availability of a Virtual Machine in cloud is one major concern of cloud computing. So if we focus on the virtual servers then to manage the resource allocation process in virtual machines plays a vital role.

The aim of this paper is to discuss the concept of cloud computing as well as the energy consumption while using this service and to increase the performance matrix of the system. Energy consumption is used for the energy-efficient load balancing. We will further discuss the techniques used in load balancing.    Full Paper
