A survey on privacy in mobile participatory sensing applications
This survey identifies the sensing modalities used in current participatory sensing applications, and assess the threats to user privacy when personal information is sensed and disclosed, and identifies open issues and possible solutions to guarantee user privacy in Participatory sensing.
On the accuracy of appliance identification based on distributed load metering data
This work evaluates the accuracy of appliance identification based on the characteristic features of traces collected during the 24 hours of a day using more than 1,000 traces of different electrical appliances' power consumptions and shows that most of the appliances can be identified at high accuracy.
Survey on Wireless Sensor Network Technologies for Industrial Automation: The Security and Quality of Service Perspectives
This evaluation selects and surveys relevant WSN technologies dedicated to industrial automation, determines QoS requirements and carries out a threat analysis, which act as basis of the evaluation of the current state-of-the-art WSNs.
Compressive Millimeter-Wave Sector Selection in Off-the-Shelf IEEE 802.11ad Devices
This work adapts compressive path tracking for sector selection in off-the-shelf IEEE 802.11ad devices, which outperforms the existing sector sweep, increases stability, and speeds up the sector selection by factor 2.3.
Practical Known-Plaintext Attacks against Physical Layer Security in Wireless MIMO Systems
A novel attack model for physical layer security schemes, which is the equivalent to known-plaintext attacks in cryptoanalysis, is developed and is able to reduce the secrecy of orthogonal blinding schemes to Symbol Error Rates (SERs) below 10 % at an eavesdropper.
Survey and Systematization of Secure Device Pairing
A system model and consistent terminology for SDP schemes are built on the foundation of this survey, which are used to classify existing S DP schemes into a taxonomy that enables their meaningful comparison and analysis, and reveal common systemic security weaknesses among the surveyed schemes.
Let's talk together: Understanding concurrent transmission in wireless sensor networks
This work experimentally investigates the two phenomena that can occur during concurrent transmission depending on the transmission timing and signal strength, i.e. constructive interference and capture effect and proposes an accurate prediction model for the reception of concurrent transmission.
IncogniSense: An anonymity-preserving reputation framework for participatory sensing applications
This paper utilizes periodic pseudonyms generated using blind signature and relies on reputation transfer between these pseudonyms, and is robust against reputation corruption and a prototype implementation demonstrates that the associated overheads are minimal.
Fast and Infuriating: Performance and Pitfalls of 60 GHz WLANs Based on Consumer-Grade Hardware
This study is centered around two fundamental adaptation mechanisms in 60 GHz networks-beam training and rate control- whose interactions are key for performance and goes beyond basic link characterization and explores for the first time practical considerations such as coverage and access point deployment.
Making 'Glossy' Networks Sparkle: Exploiting Concurrent Transmissions for Energy Efficient, Reliable, Ultra-Low Latency Communication in Wireless Control Networks
Wireless sensor networks (WSN) offer a promising engineering solution which brings deployment flexibility and saves wiring costs in industrial automation and control applications. However, utilizing
