With the growth in computing needs, energy cost includes a large portion of operating cost of cloud data centers. Electricity prices vary in different times and geographical places. Such diversity provides opportunity for diminishing total cost via migration of jobs to places with lower energy prices. Most of the previous studies only focus on computing… (More)
This paper introduces the concept of rate privacy in the context of wireless sensor networks. Our discussion reveals that the concept indeed is of a great importance for the privacy preservation of such networks. As a result, we propose a buffering scheme to protect the rate from adversaries. Simulation results verify the applicability of our approach.
