Motivated by a key agreement scheme proposed by Leighton and Micali (LM-KDS), we present a key establishment mechanism for heterogeneous sensor networks which combines random key pre-distribution schemes and LM-KDS. Using LM-KDS as its building block, proposed scheme divides nodes into groups and distributes a small number of micro key servers among nodes.(More)
Sensor networks are resource-constrained, which makes developing efficient key distribution scheme a challenging problem. In general, many key distribution techniques are designed to address the trade-off between limited resources and security, no key distribution technique is ideal to all the scenarios where sensor networks are used. In this paper, we(More)
To establish vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and interleukin-8 (IL-8) as secretary biomarkers for cell growth on topographic substrates, we have evaluated the secretion and expression of these 2 factors by SH-SY5Y human neuroblastoma cells on poly-L-lactide (PLLA) micropillar arrayed topographic substrates. We fabricated topographic substrates(More)
Cells in vivo typically are found in 3D matrices, the mechanical stiffness of which is important to the cell and tissue-scale biological processes. Although it is well characterized that as to how cells sense matrix stiffness in 2D substrates, the scenario in 3D matrices needs to be explored. Thus, materials that can mimic native 3D environments and possess(More)
This paper investigates divide-and-conquer based cooperative jamming for physical-layer security enhancement in the presence of multiple eavesdroppers. Different from previous works, we consider a scenario where the eavesdroppers can be located anywhere inside the communication region of the source, no location information of the eavesdroppers is available(More)
UV photolithography and hydrofluoric acid wet etching were used to produce silicon master molds and polydimethylsiloxane (PMDS)-based soft lithography was adopted to fabricate three-dimensional poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) and PDMS microwell patterns with high aspect ratio and channel connection. Nine microwell patterns were thus obtained with(More)
We exploit the expiring nature of hedge fund lockups to create a dynamic, fund-level proxy of funding liquidity risk. In contrast to the prior literature, our measure allows us to identify how within-fund changes in funding liquidity risk are associated with performance and risk taking. Lockup funds with lower funding liquidity risk take more tail risk and(More)
A key pre-distribution scheme is a method by which initially an off-line trusted authority T A distributes pieces of information among a set of users. Later, each member of a group of users can compute a common key for secure communication. In this paper we present a Keying Material Based Key Pre-distribution Scheme, i.e., a group of users, using secret(More)
