Abstract: A masquerader is an (often external) attacker is one who, after succeeding in obtaining a legitimateuser's credentials, attempts to use the stolen identity to carry out malicious actions.Automatic detection of masquerading attacks is generally undertaken by approaching theproblem from an anomaly detection perspective: a model of normal behaviour for eachuser is constructed and significant departures from it are identified as potentialmasquerading attempts.The most common techniqueto masquerade a face recognition system is to use a photo print or a video of a valid user to gain illegitimate access. There exist methods in literature addressing this issue. This paper presents an analysis of masquerade detection algorithms in face recognition system.

Abstract: Multidocument summarization is a set of documents on the same topic, the output is a paragraph length summary. Since documents often cover a number of topic themes with each theme represented by a cluster of highly related sentences, sentence clustering has been explored in the literature in order to provide more informative summaries. An existing cluster-based summarization approach that directly generates clusters first and with ranking next. Ranking distribution of sentences in each cluster should be quite different from each other, which may serve as features of cluster, we propose an integrated approach that overcomes the drawback that we provide ranking for same meaning of different words. As a clustering result to improve or refine the sentence ranking results. The effectiveness of the proposed approach is demonstrated by both the cluster quality analysis and the summarization evaluation conducted on our simulated datasets.
Keywords: Documentation Summarization, Sentence Clustering, Sentence Ranking.

Title : Performance Analysis of Routing Protocols in Mobile AD-HOC Networks (MANETs)
Country : India
Authors : Konduri Sucharitha || Dr. R. Latha

Abstract: A mobile ad-hoc network (MANET) is a self starting dynamic network comprising of mobile nodes, where each and every participation node voluntarily transmit the packets destined to some remote node using wireless (radio signal) transmission. The main aim behind the developing of ad hoc networking is multi-hop relaying. Wireless Ad hoc networks or infrastructure less networks are very easy to establish by using radio waves as transmitting medium without the requirements of any other equipment or infrastructure. An ad hoc network doesn't have any centralized arbitrator or server. In MANET, all networking functions such as routing and packet forwarding, are performed by nodes themselves in a self-organizing manner. For these reasons, securing a mobile ad-hoc network is very challenging in many areas such as routing, bandwidth, security, power consumption, collisions, simulations, and topology control due to moving nodes. This paper provides an overview of AODV, DSR, and TORA. The comparisons among three routing protocols are based on the various protocol property parameters such as Route Discovery, Network Overhead, Periodic Broadcast, Node overhead etc. different routing protocols proposed in literature and also provide a comparison between them.
Keywords: Mobile Adhoc Network, Protocol property, AODV, DSR, TORA , Route Discovery

Abstract: In recent years, corporate scandals, regulatory changes, and the collapse of major financial institutions have brought much warranted attention to the quality of enterprise data if we can better understand the problems of quality issues, then we can develop a plan of action to address the problem that is both proactive and strategic. Each instance of a quality issue presents challenges in both identifying where problems exist and in quantifying the extent of the problems. Quantifying the issues is important in order to determine where our efforts should be focused. It is reported that more than $2 billion of U.S. federal loan money had been lost because of poor data quality at a single agency. It also reported that manufacturing companies spent over 25% of their sales on wasteful practices. Over the period of time many researchers have contributed to the data quality issues, but no research has collectively gathered all the causes of data quality problems at all the phases of data warehousing along with their possible solution. problems in different phase of data warehouse i.e.; data sources, data integration & data profiling, Data staging and ETL, data warehouse modeling & schema design are discussed in this paper.

Abstract: The native Java Programming Language whose importance to the internet cannot be over emphasised, has suffered series of vulnerabilities that threaten to destabilize the Internet Technology. Most of the vulnerabilities are introduced into the internet when the functionalities of a language are increased or when new version of a language is released but the discovery of these security holes and the provision of patches to these holes are usually done by either relevant professional organization such as OWASP and CVE or the inventor (s) of the language. This review tries to explain the concept of vulnerabilities, the native Java flaws and practical solutions to the vulnerabilities as proffered by relevant computer security organization(s).This will serve as a guide to software developers considering the devastating effects of the ignorance of secure coding methods.
Keywords: Flaws, Holes, Obfuscation, Patches, Vulnerability.

Abstract: Cloud computing is rising as the next generation platform for computation. May be in future Cloud computing will be the main platform to save the world; this makes people can have everything they need on it. Main advantages of the Cloud computing is used for on-demand gathering of information, technology services and products. The name Cloud has come from the Internet, based on how it is depicted in computer network diagrams, and is an abstraction for the complex infrastructure it conceals. In general we can define cloud com-puting is style of computing in which IT-related capabilities are provided "as a service", allowing users to access technology-enabled services from the Internet without knowledge of, expertise with, or control over the technology infrastructure that supports them. Email application was probably the first service on the "cloud".

Title : Survey on Security Issues and Secure Protocols for Manet

Authors : Indu Singh

Abstract: A mobile ad-hoc network (MANET) is a self-configuring network of mobile routers (and associated hosts) connected by wireless links the union of which form an arbitrary topology. The routers are free to move randomly and organize themselves arbitrarily; thus, the network's wireless topology may change rapidly and unpredictably. Many of the ad hoc routing protocols that address security issues rely on implicit trust relationships to route packets among participating nodes. Besides the general security objectives like authentication, confidentiality, integrity, availability and non-repudiation, the ad hoc routing protocols should also address location confidentiality, cooperation fairness and absence of traffic diversion. In MANET , any node may compromise the routing protocol functionality by disrupting the route discovery process .We present a route discovery protocol that mitigates the detrimental effects of such malicious behavior as to provide correct connectivity information . Here scheme guarantees that node initiating a route discovery will be able to identify and discard replies providing false topological information, or, avoid receiving them. For this basic route query broadcast that provides. Secure Routing we propose the Secure Routing Protocol (SRP) that is to be applied on extension of ZRP, DSR and IERP.

Title : Edge Adaptive Image Steganography Based on Adaptive Pixel Pair Matching
Country : India

Abstract: This paper proposes a new improved steganographic technique based on pixel pair matching which is driven by edge adaptive technique. The cover image is scanned first to explore the edges of the image and is used as the candidate region to perform data hiding using pixel pair matching. The basic idea of pixel pair matching (PPM) is to use the value of a pixel pair as a reference coordinate, and search a coordinate in the neighborhood set of this pixel pair according to a given message digit. The pixel pair is then replaced by the searched coordinate to conceal the digit. The method uses only sharper edge regions while keeping the other smoother regions as they are. In contrast to the existing methods based on PPM, the masking driven approach has lower distortion for various payloads. The proposed method is expected to provide better performance than the existing techniques based on LSB and also secure against well-known steganalysis techniques.

Abstract: It is very important that the security mechanisms of a system are designed so as to prevent unauthorized access to system resources and data. However, completely preventing breaches of security appear, at present, unrealistic. We can, however, try to detect these intrusion attempts so that action may be taken to repair the damage later. Expert system (ES) has been proposed to be the beter solution of reasoning on the existing problems on the basis of expert knowledge. Experts 'brain' are stored in a database called a knowledge base and then made the rules to give decisions in accordance with the knowledge base.In this research, knowledge base taken from the expert and journal. Expert system will be used to determine or predict the occurrence of intrusion detection systems based on the feature above. By simple means, any data packet is going to be examined by ES, which initially stores knowledge about intrusion characteristics from database as variables. The result of this research is anomaly packet already detected by the application according to the rule based on the expert and the journal.

Abstract: Security systems help to protect machines or sensitive data from unauthorized users. The need for better and cheap security systems is growing with the growth in technologies and hacking skills of the people. Various techniques are available that can provide some level of security. The problem of unintended side-effects of inconsistent experimental condition and environmental variables by restricting user's mouse operation to a tightly-controlled environment has been addressed with the solution of mouse operations as dynamics. Mouse dynamics measures and assesses a user's mouse-behavior characteristic for use as a biometric. For Each mouse operation task both holistic and procedural features are extracted. This type of authentication is very simple and efficient for the users. Then a Nearest Neighbor algorithm is employed for extracting the feature and anytime algorithm for the accuracy and speed. This approach achieves to improve the number of users with a false acceptance rate of 8.75% and a false rejection rate of 7.70%.This approach could lead to a performance boost both in authentication accuracy and authentication time.

Abstract: Using Cloud Storage, users can remotely store their data and enjoy the on-demand high quality applications and services from a shared pool of configurable computing resources, without the burden of local data storage and maintenance. However, the fact that users no longer have physical possession of the outsourced data makes the data integrity protection in Cloud Computing a formidable task. Unfortunately, sharing data in a multi-owner manner while preserving data and identity privacy from an untrusted cloud is still a challenging issue, due to the frequent change of the membership. In proposed a secure cloud storage for multi-owner data sharing authentication system supporting privacy-preserving by enabling public auditability for cloud storage with critical importance so that users can resort to a third party auditor (TPA) to check the integrity of outsourced data and be worry-free. And also by encryption and hashing techniques, such as Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), Merkle Hash Tree, any cloud user can anonymously share data with others.

Title : TAB-PRRA: Improved Link Repair Decision Mechanism for On-demand Routing in MANET
Country : India
Authors : Ms. Deepika Patil || Mrs. Nitika Vats Doohan

Abstract: The traditional AODV protocol uses a fixed hop count based threshold as a basis for deciding when to invoke Local Repair or Source Repair in case of a link break. The problem arises with this type of repairing mechanism is that the network is not clear that at which time what algorithms needs to be applied. So some condition has to be identified on the basis of which the decision can be taken. Also the decision must be pre-emptive so that the loss of data can be avoided before occurrence. In this paper, a Threshold Alarm Based Pre-emptive Route Repair Algorithm (TAB-PRRA) for Multi-Hop Local repair in ADOV is presented and simulated. It focuses on measuring those parameters which provides an prior information of link failure before its occurrence and also if the link break occurs that the network must know the time to start the route discovery. The approach offers efficient utilization of network resources such as energy and bandwidth.
