In this article, we study the problem of quality of service (QoS)-aware cost management of sensor-cloud comprising multiple sensor-cloud service providers (SCSPs) and sensor-owners. The rapid adaptation of the wireless sensor network (WSN) and Internet-of-Things (IoT) technology led to the conceptualization of the sensor-cloud infrastructure which primarily aims to reduce the complexities associated with operating WSN-based applications by rendering Sensors-as-a-Service (Se-aaS). However, the…

Enabling Collaborative Data Uploading in Body-to-Body Networks
This letter investigates the data uploading problem for BBN, and forms a Stackelberg game, where the requesting users as leaders propose the prices, and the gateway users as followers decide the amount of requesting users’ data they would upload, and proves the existence of StACkelberg equilibrium (SE) of the game using backward induction.

Virtual sensors, which are at the core of this sensor cloud architecture, assist in creating a multiuser environment on top of resource-constrained physical wireless sensors and can help in supporting multiple applications.
Risk Assessment in a Sensor Cloud Framework Using Attack Graphs
The proposed risk assessment framework uses Bayesian networks to not only assess but also to analyze attacks on WSNs and will first review the impact of attacks on a WSN and estimate reasonable time frames that predict the degradation of WSN security parameters like confidentiality, integrity and availability.
