The predominant grid authentication mechanisms use public key infrastructure (PKI). Nonetheless, certificate-less public key cryptography (CL-PKC) has several advantages that seem to well align with the demands of grid computing. Security and efficiency are the main objectives of grid authentication protocols. Unfortunately, certificate-less authenticated(More)
Cognition is a high level mental faculty of the brain that includes functions like adaptation, learning, deciding, and others. Accordingly, a Cognitive Radio must have capabilities that mimic such Cognitive functions. As one of the fundamental cognitive abilities of the radio, this paper proposes a novel adaptation method; which uses Real-coded Genetic(More)
—The most prevalent grid security standard, grid security infrastructure uses an authentication protocol based on public key infrastructure (PKI). Certificateless public key cryptography (CL-PKC) overcomes PKI certificate management problems and is well aligned with grid computing demands. Security and efficiency are the main grid authentication protocol(More)
