In this paper, we discuss the design and engineering of a biologically-inspired, host-based intrusion detection system to protect computer networks. To this end, we have implemented an Artificial Immune System (AIS) that mimics the behavior of the biological adaptive immune system. The proposed AIS, consists of a number of running artificial white blood(More)
Mobile devices, laptops, and USB memory usually store large amounts of sensitive information frequently unprotected. Unauthorized access to or release of such information could reveal business secrets, users habits, non-public data or anything else. Full Disk Encryption (FDE) solutions might help users to protect sensitive data in the event that devices are(More)
Password-based key derivation functions are of particular interest in cryptography because they (a) input a password/passphrase (which usually is short and lacks enough entropy) and derive a cryptographic key; (b) slow down brute force and dictionary attacks as much as possible. In PKCS#5 [19], RSA Laboratories described a password based key derivation(More)
Most of the attacks against the Advanced Encryption Standard based on faults mainly aim at either altering the temporary value of the message or key during the computation. Few other attacks tamper the instruction flow in order to reduce the number of round iterations to one or two. In this work, we extend this idea and present fault attacks against the AES(More)
