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)
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)
Document Clustering is a widely studied problem in Text Categorization. It is the process of partitioning or grouping a given set of documents into disjoint clusters where documents in the same cluster are similar. K-means, one of the simplest unsupervised learning algorithms, solves the well known clustering problem following a simple and easy way to(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. Trust(More)
Voice and multimedia communications are rapidly migrating from traditional networks to TCP/IP networks (Internet), where services are provisioned by SIP (Session Initiation Protocol). This paper proposes an on-line filter that examines the stream of incoming SIP messages and classifies them as good or bad. The classification is carried out in two stages:(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)

Explosion of number of smartphone apps and their diversity has created a fertile ground to study behaviour of smartphone users. Patterns of app usage, specifically types of apps and their duration are influenced by the state of the user and this information can be correlated with the self-reported state of the users. The work in this paper is along the line(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)
