Title : Review of Mobile Ad Hoc Network Protocols
Country : Nigeria
Authors : Afolayan A. Obiniyi || Oyenike Mary Olanrewaju

Abstract: Mobile Ad-hoc Network is one of the types of Wireless Ad-Hoc Networks which has distinguished characteristics. It is a self-configuring, decentralized and infrastructure less wireless network where mobile nodes in such a network communicate with each other through wireless links. Since the nodes can move around, routing in such a setup is always a challenge. To overcome this challenge of routing as a prerequisite to network communication, the Mobile Ad hoc Networking (MANET) routing protocols must establish an efficient route between network nodes. It should also be able to adjust efficiently to the frequently varying topology of moving nodes. In this paper, the main characteristics and the research challenge of routing in MANET, which may be considered in designing various routing protocols were discussed. Various MANET protocols surveyed and their classification; proactive, reactive and hybrid discussed. The review also present the strength and weaknesses of some specific protocols, discuss the various extensions made to the major protocols by researchers in this field and itemized out areas of future research work.

Title : IVRS and DTMF based Voting System
Country : India
Authors : Anisha Sachdev || Nidhi Shetty || Mansi Nagdev

Abstract: A Voting System will be developed where a person can vote using a cell phone. A phone connected to the voting system, will decode the DTMF pulses sent by another phone (mobile/landline) belonging to the voter. There will be two databases, 1st will keep record of voter's information and 2nd will about the electing parties. The voter will call the number assigned to the IVRS voting system, which will instruct the user how to proceed further. Then the voter will enter his/her password. If he/she is authenticated then he/she will be allowed to vote. If the person has already voted then his record will be updated as "voted" in the database. An Admin will log into the system and begin the system. After the voting time period is over, reports will be generated showing the results of election, which will be seen by the admin.

Country : Sudan
Authors : Eng.Randa Ibrahim Mohammed Ibnouf || Dr.Amin Babiker A/Nabi Mustafa

Abstract: To be able to manage the available bandwidth and distribute it among the Cloud Applications users effectively is a very critical issue to avoid network congestion and network resources abuse. In this paper we will explore a mechanism that enables us to distribute the bandwidth more effectively and in a smart way on cloud service for CBS Company. The Cloud Application users were divided into three distinctive groups of network consumption capacity, each capacity is determined as per actual work done and the bandwidth is determined accordingly. We monitored the network performance for all the three groups, to make sure of the quality of the network service. The results showed that we had succeeded through our mechanism to manage the bandwidth in an ideal way that granted to us the maximum usage of the cloud service.

Title : Optical Character Recognition (OCR) System
Country : India
Authors : Najib Ali Mohamed Isheawy || Habibul Hasan

Abstract: In the running world, there is growing demand for the software systems to recognize characters in computer system when information is scanned through paper documents as we know that we have number of newspapers and books which are in printed format related to different subjects. These days there is a huge demand in "storing the information available in these paper documents in to a computer storage disk and then later reusing this information by searching process". One simple way to store information in these paper documents in to computer system is to first scan the documents and then store them as IMAGES. But to reuse this information it is very difficult to read the individual contents and searching the contents form these documents line-by-line and word-by-word. The reason for this difficulty is the font characteristics of the characters in paper documents are different to font of the characters in computer system. As a result, computer is unable to recognize the characters while reading them. This concept of storing the contents of paper documents in computer storage place and then reading and searching the content is called DOCUMENT PROCESSING. Sometimes in this document processing we need to process the information that is related to languages other than the English in the world. For this document processing we need a software system called CHARCATER RECOGNITION SYSTEM. This process is also called DOCUMENT IMAGE ANALYSIS (DIA).

Title : Mobile, Secure E - Voting Architecture for the Nigerian Electoral System
Country : Nigeria
Authors : Nwogu Emeka Reginald

Abstract: This work discusses electronic voting for the Nigerian electoral system, modeling a two-level hierarchical architecture that includes the national and state level infrastructure. This solves most of the electoral challenge in the country. The system proposed is a form of Public Network Direct Recording Electronic Voting System (PNDRE Voting System) that run on a Virtual Private Network (VPN) implemented on the existing General System for Mobile (GSM) communication network infrastructure. It makes use of asymmetric cryptography, with the preferred protocol being RSA algorithm running on a Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) that enables the various communicating units of the system to be authenticated for information exchange; making it impossible for attackers to break into the system. Smartcards are used as voter accreditation tokens, with every prospective voter having to first register by supplying their biological and voting information to the Voter Information Database. This allows very good mobility and flexibility on the system, as voters can register and cast their votes at different polling stations other than where they were registered. The system is proposed with the good ergonomics, allowing even non ICT compliant persons to use it efficiently.

Title : Privacy Protection in Distributed Industrial System
Country : India
Authors : P.Sheela Rani || B.Malavika || D.Menaka

Abstract: Although awareness is constantly rising, that industrial computer networks (in a very broad sense) can be exposed to serious cyber threats, many people still think that the same countermeasures, developed to protect general-purpose computer networks, can be effectively adopted also in those situations where a physical system is managed/controlled through some distributed Information and Communication Technology (ICT) infrastructure. Unfortunately, this is not the case, as several examples of successful attacks carried out in the last decade, and more frequently in the very recent past, have dramatically shown. Experts in this area know very well that often the peculiarities of industrial networks prevent the adoption of classical approaches to their security and, in particular, of those popular solutions that are mainly based on a detect and patch philosophy. This paper is a contribution, from the security point of view, to the assessment of the current situation of a wide class of industrial distributed computing systems. In particular, the analysis presented in this paper takes into account the process of ensuring a satisfactory degree of security for a distributed industrial system, with respect to some key elements such as the system characteristics, the current state of the art of standardization and the adoption of suitable controls (countermeasures) that can help in lowering the security risks below a predefined, acceptable threshold.

Keywords: Industrial networks, information security, network security, risk assessment, security analysis and monitoring, security countermeasures.

Title : Virtualization: A Sustainable Resource Management Strategy in Computing Practices
Country : Nigeria
Authors : Olaitan O. Afolabi || Ibrahim K. Ogundoyin

Abstract: Many computing practitioners are challenged with resource inefficiencies and insufficiencies emanating from poor management strategy. In order to reduce complexity and risk while improving productivity, practitioners need to virtualize their resources. Virtualization of devices allows fast installation of applications and reduces cost of procuring equipments and time spent on placing orders, delivery and set-up. The socio-political ramifications of global warming requiring good corporate citizens to meet greenhouse gas reduction targets, creates an added incentive for virtualization. This paper unleashes the many potentials of virtualization technology and explores how it promises to address much of the problems confronting computing practices. The results of the analysis of survey obtained from the industry-leading virtualization software company (VMware) ascertained virtualization as a solution for sufficiency and efficiency in computing practices as the main objectives of this paper.
