In this paper, we propose two certificateless aggregate signature schemes, which are the first aggregate signature schemes in the CL-PKC. The first scheme CAS-1 reduces the costs of communication and signer-side computation but loses on storage, while CAS-2 minimizes the storage but sacrifices the communication. We can choose one of the above schemes by the(More)
The design of lightweight block ciphers has been a very active research topic over the last years. However, the lack of comparative source codes generally makes it hard to evaluate the extent to which different ciphers actually reach their low-cost goals, on different platforms. This paper reports on an initiative aimed to partially relax this issue. First,(More)
Curcumin is a molecule found in turmeric root that has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anti-tumor properties and has been widely used as both an herbal drug and a food additive to treat or prevent neurodegenerative diseases. To explore whether curcumin is able to ameliorate HIV-1-associated neurotoxicity, we treated a murine microglial cell line (N9)(More)
Lactobacillus species dominate the microbiome in the lower genital tract of most reproductive-age women. Producing lactic acid and H2O2, lactobacilli are believed to play an important role in prevention of colonization by and growth of pathogens. However, to date, there have been no reported studies characterizing how lactobacilli interact with Chlamydia(More)
Key management is the pillar of a security architecture. Body sensor networks (BSNs) pose several challenges – some inherited from wireless sensor networks (WSNs), some unique to themselves – that require a new key management scheme to be tailor-made. The challenge is taken on, and the result is KALwEN, a new lightweight scheme that combines the best-suited(More)
Studying neuronal processes such as synaptic summation, dendritic physiology and neural network dynamics requires complex spatiotemporal control over neuronal activities. The recent development of neural photosensitization tools, such as channelrhodopsin-2 (ChR2), offers new opportunities for non-invasive, flexible and cell-specific neuronal stimulation.(More)
Previous studies have demonstrated a diversity of Bartonella spp. in rodent populations in Yunnan Province, China. Although Bartonella spp. have been isolated from cat fleas and cattle ticks collected from their animal hosts, little is known about Bartonella carried by rodent fleas. In this study, Bartonella DNA was detected by polymerase chain reaction(More)
Nowadays, investigating what construction is better to be a cryptographic hash function is red hot. In [13], Maurer et al. first introduced the notion of indifferentiability as a generalization of the concept of the indistinguishability of two cryptosystems. At ASIACRYPT’06, Chang et al. [6] analyzed the indifferentiability security of some popular(More)
