—Software-Defined Networking (SDN) is a new networking paradigm that grants a controller and its applications an omnipotent power to have holistic network visibility and flexible network programmability, thus enabling new innovations in network protocols and applications. One of the core advantages of SDN is its logically centralized control plane to(More)
An iridium anomaly at the Cretaceous/Tertiary boundary layer has been attributed to an extraterrestrial body that struck the Earth some 65 million years ago. It has been suggested that, during this event, the carrier of iridium was probably a micrometre-sized silicate-enclosed aggregate or the nanophase material of the vaporized impactor. But the fate of(More)
IP-based wireless sensor networks (IP-WSN) are popularly recognized as a global sensor networks infrastructure by combining IPv6 technology with wireless sensor networks (WSN). However, IP-WSN, currently, does not provide security because it is commonly recognized that it is a big burden for IP-WSN to adapt Internet's dominant security protocol. We suggest(More)
—Mobility management is one of the most important research issues in 6LoWPAN, which is a standardizing IP-based Wireless Sensor Networks(IP-WSN) protocol. Since the IP-WSN application domain is expanded to real-time applications such as healthcare and surveillance systems, a fast and seamless handover becomes an important criterion for mobility support in(More)
Network management against security, reliability, and performance attacks is an integral part of building dependable, high-performance network services. In traditional networks, the management practices take mainly remote approaches to cope with the ossified network infrastructure. However, since disaster events that occur within the network should be(More)
—An emerging trend in corporate network administration is BYOD (Bring Your Own Device). Although with many advantages, the paradigm shift presents new challenges in security to enterprise networks. While existing solutions such as Mobile Device Management (MDM) focus mainly on controlling and protecting device data, they fall short in providing a holistic(More)
Software Defined Networking (SDN) is an emerging technology that attracts significant attention from both industry and academia recently. By decoupling the control logic from the closed and proprietary implementations of traditional network devices, it enables researchers and practitioners to design new innovative network functions/protocols in a much more(More)
Microphysiological systems provide a tool to simulate normal and pathological function of organs for prolonged periods. These systems must incorporate the key functions of the individual organs and enable interactions among the corresponding microphysiological units. The relative size of different microphysiological organs and their flow rates are scaled in(More)
Wireless sensor networks have gained immense popularity for decades and a new approach, IP-based WSNs, has recently emerged as a future technology advancing the era of ubiquitous computing. Thus, this paper designs a conformance testing framework suitable for IP-WSNs. The framework is an automatic testing methodology that consists of a test agent as a test(More)
