Abstract:For decades, photographs have been used to document space-time events and they have often served as evidence in courts. Today, powerful digital image editing software makes image modifications straightforward. This undermines our trust in photographs and, in particular, questions pictures as evidence for real-world events. Contrast enhancement is mainly to adjust the brightness globally. Users may also perform local contrast enhancement for creating a realistic composite image. Most latest technology in the literature uses two algorithms to find the contrast enhancement for the manipulation of digital imagees. First algorithm focus on the detection of global contrast enhancement applied to previously JPEG compressed images.

Abstract: Digital content piracy is one of the major crimes in the present world. Protection of digital content like music, video and images has become a major problem. Watermarking is one of the methods to protect digital content against unauthorized copying. In watermarking procedure, generally, watermark is embedded before it is going to be distributed over different communication channels. This paper presents a novel technique for embedding a image/data into video frames. Video Watermarking is a process by which user specified data is hidden or embedded into another signal (Video Signal) by the watermark embedding process. Afterwards the recovery of the watermark is achieved with the help of the watermark extraction process. The proposed scheme is an imperceptible and a robust hybrid video watermarking scheme.

Title : Stegnography in video files using Multivariate Regression and Flexible Macroblock Ordering

Abstract: Data hiding is the ability of embedding data into a digital cover with a minimum amount of perceivable degradation, i.e., the embedded data is invisible or inaudible to a human observer. Data hiding consists of two sets of data, namely the cover medium and the embedding data, which is called the message. In general, there are two types of data hiding for video: one that hides the video content itself (video encryption or scrambling) so that nobody understands what is being transmitted; the other that embeds external information into the video, hence utilizing video as the data host. This paper proposes two data hiding approaches in compressed MPEG video. In the first approach, the quantization scale of a Constant Bit Rate (CBR) video is either incremented or decremented according to the underlying message bit that is to hidden. A second-order multivariate regression is used to associate the macroblock-level features with the hidden message bit. The decoder makes use of this regression model to predict the message bits.

Abstract: In many applications like crime detection, health sector, taxation sector etc… record linkage is used to find out the matched data items from different data sources. Finding matched records from different data sources corresponding to same entity is referred to as record linkage. It provides data integrity, data quality and also the reuse of existing data for advanced studies. The complexity of finding matching records is high due to the increased size of databases. The proposed system contain the secure information retrieval after efficient record linkage with indexing. AES algorithm is applied for the secure transmission of matched data. The indexing step generates candidate record pairs that are to be compared in record linkage process. After finding the matched records, it is sent to the user using secure AES algorithm in-order to avoid the malpractices.

Keywords:Record linkage, data integrity, data quality, indexing, AES algorithm.

Abstract: In this article, we draw a comparative study of microprocessor–based distributed systems, using the two major processors; Intel and AMD. Although the philosophy of their microarchitecture is the same, they differ in their approaches to implementation. Whether to increase the number of cores or to maximize the cores by hyperthreading, many of these features arise from philosophical grounds. These differences have been considered on the basis of their threading capabilities, coprocessor communications, memory accesses, and virtualization supports. . Moreover, the invention of hybrid server of these two processors cannot be compared with that of a server built with their individual processors. From our findings therefore, Intel remains the giant in microprocessor world while AMD on the other hand is in the front line of technological innovations.

Title : A Secure Data Hiding Scheme In Images Using Random Generated Key
Country : India
Authors : Sobimol Mathew
: 10.9790/0661-16594954     logo

Abstract: Data hiding is the process of transmitting images in a hidden manner, where as the message should be invisible to the unauthorized users. This technique is a good way to achieve the secret delivery of data, where the colour image acts as a popular cover media to send the secret. The commonly used data hiding technique are based on block truncation coding and complementary Error Diffused Block Truncation Coding. Block Truncation Coding is a type lossy image compression technique for grey scale images. It divide the original image into blocks and then use a quantizer to reduce the number of grey levels. The major issues associated with BTC are unnecessary blocking and false contouring effects. To overcome these issues a complementary Hiding Error Diffused Block Truncation Coding was developed by Jing-Min-Guo and Yun-Fu-Lin. This method overcomes the limitations of traditional BTC, ensure the image quality and highest processing efficiency. The existing system consists of an encoder and decoder and the encoder spreads the watermark into two marked images and the corresponding data security is also improved with the security sharing concepts. However the existing system uses a pseudo random key, which is not synchronized in between the encoder and decoder may leads to wrong extraction. Another problem associated with the existing system is Block size. Various block size can lead different bitmap through existing decoder and the system does not consider the bias limitation, number of water mark as keys and cannot protect the embedded data. The proposed system overcomes the limitations of existing CHEDBTC system without altering its advantages. Our system can yield high image quality and can with stand against various types of security attacks.

Abstract: A ring signature system is strongly unforgeable if the ring signature is existential unforgeable and, given ring signatures on some message m, the adversary can not produce a new ring signature on m. Strongly unforgeable ring signatures are useful for constructing chosen-ciphertext secure cryptographic system. For example, it can be used to design the ring signcryptionscheme.In this paper, we analyse the safety of Au et al.'s ID-based ring signature scheme, then we construct a strongly unforgeable ID-based ring signature scheme in the standard model based on the standard discrete logarithm problem (DLP).

Abstract: A group of fixed or mobile communication devices that does not have a stable infrastructure to communicate with each other is known as mobile ad-hoc network. In MANET their is very importent role of nodes. All nodes can communicate with each other by directly or indirectly method. Routing is a most important part in MANET. There are three types of protocols we use for routing i.e. Proactive, Reactive and Hybrid. In this Paper, we study the AODV (Ad-hoc On-Demand Distance Vector), DSR (Dynamic Source Routing), OLSR (Optimized Link State Routing Protocol) routing protocols for DB (database) and HTTP (hyper text transfer protocol) traffic types. 20 and 45 nodes are used to computed various parameters like throughput, number of hops and response time and compare using OPNET (Optimized Network Engineering Tool) simulator.

Abstract: The sensor networks are often deployed in hostile environments and are not attended for long time. Deployment of these networks is increased in the recent years, as they help in monitoring and analyzing different properties of the environment. The application of wireless sensor network starts from environment, household monitoring and ranging up to critical military applications. The sensor nodes in the network are prone to different kinds of novel attacks. An attacker, with little effort, may physically capture nodes, exploits the information on the node, reprogram the node and create replicas, and secretly insert these replicas at strategic locations within the network. This is called as node replication attack. Since these replicas have legitimate access to the network (legitimate IDs, keys, other security credentials, etc.), they can participate in the network operations in the same way as a legitimate node, and thus a large variety of insider attacks takes over the network. Using such nodes the attacker can corrupt the data flowing through the network, also the attacker can disconnect some part of the network with other part of the network. Detection of node replication attack is therefore important. So, in this report we will come to know about some node replication detection schemes, out of which some depend primarily on centralized mechanisms where the base station plays very important role, and others depend on distributed detection schemes. The detection probabilities and communication overhead are the major concern while proposing and using the detection techniques. Hence, the design of efficient algorithm to detect node identity replicas is still an open and demanding issue. Keywords: Wireless sensor network, Replication attack, Centralized Detection schemes, Distributed Detection schemes, Security.

Abstract: Cloud Computing privileges convenient, easy on-demand access to a collection of configurable resources and services. The services and resources on the cloud can be robustly deployed with low maintenance cost, effort and high efficiency. Cloud is still considered as an insecure computing platform from the user point of view due to the lack of security in terms of confidentiality and integrity. Shielding mechanisms for cloud systems must be designed that safeguard sensitive data using cryptographic techniques and also maintain the intactness of user information stored on the remote storage by protecting it against malicious entities or behaviors. In this paper, we enunciate an overall sketch of various integrity issues in cloud that have been discovered over a period of time and the possible solutions that deal with these serious issues.
