Smartphones are now capable of supporting a wide range of applications, many of which demand an ever increasing computational power. This poses a challenge because smartphones are resource-constrained devices with limited computation power, memory, storage, and energy. Fortunately, the cloud computing technology offers virtually unlimited dynamic resources(More)
Power management is an important aspect of mobile computing. Previous works on power conservation have concentrated on the hardware approach. In this paper, we propose a different approach of power conservation strategy for mobile computers which is based on the concept of load sharing. User jobs are transferred from a mobile host to a fixed host to reduce(More)
Mobile cloud computing presents an effective solution to overcome smartphone constraints, such as limited computational power, storage, and energy. As the traditional mobile application development models do not support computation offloading, mobile cloud computing requires novel application development models that can facilitate the development of cloud(More)
Mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) are infrastructureless and distributed communication systems that require sophisticated approaches to routing to cope with node mobility and heterogeneous application requirements. In the past few years, distributed hash table (DHT) has come forth as a useful additional technique to the design and specification of spontaneous(More)
A Mobile Ad Hoc Network (MANET) eliminates the complexity of an infrastructured configuration and allows wireless devices to communicate with each other on the fly for any application. It does not rely on a base station to coordinate the flow of messages to nodes in the network. A primary challenge is for each device to maintain the information to properly(More)
Bluetooth security has become increasingly important since Bluetooth is going to be used as a standard technology in wireless personal communication. This is especially true for Bluetooth applications that require strong security policies, e.g. mobile commerce applications. In this paper, a Bluetooth service-level security that allows easy implementation of(More)
Cloud computing has emerged as the leading paradigm for information technology businesses. Cloud computing provides a platform to manage and deliver computing services around the world over the Internet. Cloud services have helped businesses utilize computing services on demand with no upfront investments. The cloud computing paradigm has sustained its(More)
