—In this letter, we propose an entropy-based mod-eling framework for supporting route stability in mobile ad hoc wireless networks. The basic motivations of the proposed modeling approach stem from the commonality observed in the location uncertainty in mobile ad hoc wireless networks and the concept of entropy. The corresponding results demonstrate that(More)
In the current worldwide ICT scenario, a constantly growing number of ever more powerful devices (smartphones, sensors, household appliances, RFID devices, etc.) join the Internet, significantly impacting the global traffic volume (data sharing, voice, multimedia, etc.) and foreshadowing a world of (more or less) smart devices, or " things " in the Internet(More)
In this article the emphasis is placed on the evaluation of the impact of intelligent flow sampling techniques on the detection and classification of network anomalies. Based on the observation that for specific-purpose applications such as anomaly detection a large fraction of information is contained in a small fraction of flows, we demonstrate that by(More)
—Cloud computing builds upon advances on virtualization and distributed computing to support cost-efficient usage of computing resources, emphasizing on resource scalability and on demand services. Moving away from traditional data-center oriented models, distributed clouds extend over a loosely coupled federated substrate, offering enhanced communication(More)
In this paper, an efficient quality of service (QoS)-constrained data aggregation and processing approach for distributed wireless sensor networks is investigated and analyzed. One of the key features of the proposed approach is that the task QoS requirements are taken into account to determine when and where to perform the aggregation in a distributed(More)
