The security of sensor network s is ever more important nowadays. In this paper we propose a new protocol BROSK to construct link dependent keys by broadcasting key negotiation messages. The link-dependent key will be negotiated in an ad-hoc scheme. Most of the proposed security protocols in sensor networks are based on point-to-point handshaking procedures(More)
The security of sensor networks is a challenging area. Key management is one of the crucial parts in constructing the security among sensor nodes. However, key management protocols require a great deal of energy consumption, particularly in the transmission of initial key negotiation messages. In this paper, we examine three previously published sensor(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the blinding effectiveness of a modified blunt sham press needle on the basis of the ability of subjects to discriminate between real and sham acupuncture needles compared with their discrimination ability based on pure guessing, and to define differences between senses (touch and vision) in the rates of correctly identified needles.(More)
Even though the primo vascular system (PVS) has been observed in large caliber lymph vessels by several independent teams, the presence of the PVS in the thoracic duct has been reported by only one team, probably because reproducing the experiment is technically difficult. This brief report presents a new, relatively straightforward method, which is a(More)

The wide-spread deployment of wireless sensor networks (WSN) promises extensive applications in military and civilian fields. So far the major research focus has been to make WSN more useful and scalable in order to cope with future challenges of communication technologies, small emphasis is placed till now for the secure communication in WSN. A lot number(More)
ETHNOPHARMACOLOGICAL RELEVANCE Traditional Medical Knowledge (TMK) is a form of Traditional Knowledge associated with medicine that is handed down orally or by written material. There are efforts to document TMK, and make database to conserve Traditional Medicine and facilitate future research to validate traditional use. Despite of these efforts, there is(More)
PURPOSE We developed an adverse events (AEs) reporting form for Korean folk medicine. METHODS The first version of the form was developed and tested in the clinical setting for spontaneous reporting of AEs. Additional revisions to the reporting form were made based on collected data and expert input. RESULTS We developed an AEs reporting form for Korean(More)
The purpose of this study was to explore the life experience related to complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) use among patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Data were collected though semi-structured interviews of nine patients with ALS and seven family members, who have used CAM. Audio recordings of the interviews were transcribed(More)
