Secure communication mechanisms in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) have been widely deployed to ensure confidentiality, authenticity and integrity of the nodes and data. Recently many WSNs applications rely on trusted communication to ensure large user acceptance. Indeed, the trusted relationship thus far can only be achieved through Trust Management System(More)
Globalization had changed the world landscape into borderless world without limits to sea, land and air space. The development of IT products and services need evaluation and certification. This paper discusses some security and trust issues in Common Criteria in evaluation and certification of IT products and services. Our intention is to help manufacturer(More)
Windows Operating System (WinOS) emerged in the market for the past few decades to provide the solution for various platforms that range from desktop computer, server to sophisticated computing systems such as grid computer. The evolution of the design of operating systems continues to fulfill the needs of diverse applications that run on various platforms(More)
The recent evolution of IP networks are seeing IP applications becoming more complex and requiring higher bandwidth consumption. More recently, IP networks are employing Multi Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) which offers better switching and enables Virtual Private Network (VPN). However, the service quality is becoming a major issue in MPLS networks due to(More)

The proliferation of heterogeneous mobile applications has overridden privacy and security issues. Since privacy threat in Location Based Services (LBS) is very hard to define, new approach of addressing the anonymity issues in Privacy Enhancing Technologies (PETs) using Trusted Computing technologies will result the privacy enhancement of user personal(More)
The tremendous growth in mobile and wireless communications comes with more pervasive applications. Current mobile device platform does not allow a local or remote user to attest the target platform. The limitation of using existing software-based protection alone can be easily affected by malicious codes and it cannot assure its own integrity. In this(More)
This paper, presents a detailed review of the works on pairing algorithm and its application in Identity-Based Encryption (IBE) scheme for Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). WSNs device is a device that resource constrained, limited memory storage and open to a third party attack. This issue has been widely recognized and much research has been in this area,(More)
The importance of key management protocol in ensuring secure communications in WSN is undeniable. This paper presents an IBE-Trust security framework utilizing the well-known identity based encryption scheme not to only establish secure communications but to ensure the trustworthiness of the communication between sensor nodes and base station. The framework(More)
