1. INTRODUCTION To develop novel underwater sensor network technologies, experimental validation is crucial. Unfortunately, full scale deployment is often hard and costly. Therefore, aquatic testbeds that are scaled down versions of the final system and that can be deployed in pools or ponds, serve a valuable purpose. To support such testbeds, we created an(More)
—Security risk management for information technology-based organizations has become increasingly important in recent years. However, the risk assessment and mitigation strategies that these organizations employ have remained relatively ad hoc and qualitative. In this paper, we extend a quantitative framework for risk assessment called Risk-Rank [1] to(More)
The structure of the contact network through which a disease spreads may influence the optimal use of resources for epidemic control. In this work, we explore how to minimize the spread of infection via quarantining with limited resources. In particular, we examine which links should be removed from the contact network, given a constraint on the number of(More)
Enhancing underwater instruments with networking capabilities is opening up exciting new opportunities for remote ocean exploration. Underwater communication is essential in enabling networking, and in this work, we focus specifically on those applications that require a communication range of 5 to 10 meters. We will show that optical wireless technology is(More)
Security risk management is becoming increasingly important in a variety of areas related to information technology (IT), such as telecommunications, cloud computing, banking information systems, etc. In this paper, we develop a systematic quantitative framework for security risk management in IT-intensive organizations. This framework provides a unified(More)
