—The inherent freedom in self-organized mobile ad-hoc networks (MANETs) introduces challenges for trust management ; particularly when nodes do not have any prior knowledge of each other. Furthermore in MANETs, the nodes themselves should be responsible for their own security. We propose a novel approach for trust management in MANETs that is based on the(More)
— Recent advances in networking technology have increased the potential for dynamic enterprise collaborations between an open set of entities on a global scale. Mobile ad-hoc networks (MANETs) have created problem in resource sharing as they are constructed via mobile nodes without any prior knowledge of the existing nodes which may not be trustworthy.(More)
—Mobile Ad hoc Networks (MANETs) consist of a large number of relatively low-powered mobile nodes communicating in a network using radio signals. Clustering is one of the techniques used to manage data exchange amongst interacting nodes. Each group of nodes has one or more elected Cluster head(s), where all Cluster heads are interconnected for forming a(More)
While moderate exposure to stress at work can act as productivity booster, prolonged exposure not only decreases productivity, but it can also lead to an array of health related problems. Therefore, monitoring stress levels and more importantly correlated stressors, becomes prerequisite for a productive workforce. Considering that verbal interaction is an(More)
—The Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) is at the root of many sessions-based applications such as VoIP and media streaming that are used by a growing number of users and organizations. The increase of the availability and use of such applications calls for careful attention to the possibility of transferring malformed, incorrect, or malicious SIP messages(More)
Despite the considerable attention that the ICN paradigm received so far, its deployment has been hindered by the scale of upgrades required to the existing infrastructure. Software programmable networking frameworks would constitute a remarkable opportunity for ICN as they enable fast deployment of novel technologies on commodity hardware. However, a(More)
