Country : India
Authors : Pran Dev || Jyoti || Dr. Sanjeev Dhawan || Dr. Kulvinder Singh

Abstract: Now a days, popularity of Internet has been increasing tremendously. Also official work, bill payments, shopping etc. has become online. So, in this era Internet is a need rather than mere interest. And the new generation is using Internet very passionately by means of mobile phones, I-Pads, laptops etc. As a result of it, social interactions among people has been transfiguring online. An increasing number of users making social interactions online give a resilience enclave to social networking sites. With increase in size of social structures, the user with off beam intents also increases. So, to deal with the problem of escalating implicit behavior, a strong analysis of the nodal behavior in online social sites is required. In this paper, an attempt has been made to demonstrate the existing approaches incorporating detection of anomalous users' behavior in online social networks like Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, LiveJournal etc. Digging into a comparative study of existing methods, efforts are made to discuss flaws and pros in these approaches, which can help in the exposure of anomalous users' behavior in online social networks.

Country : India
Authors : Sangeeta Joshi || Dr Ravinder Khanna || Lalit Kumar Joshi

Abstract: Mobile devices are now a day well incorporated with advanced capabilities and technologies such as the Internet, GPS, and Bluetooth etc. Mobile security has become a globally sensitive issue because of the high usage of mobile devices. But as compared to computers and computer networks, they are less protected. The user's of these devices pay less attention to the security updates. The most popular mobile operating system today in the industry is Android. However, with the growing market share of Android smart phone, the malware (malicious software) writers have begun to target the Android operating system. Recently, the most dangerous threat which is targeting Android is 'botnets'. In this paper, we present an introduction of Android botnets and an analysis of currently available families of botnets. By analyzing these samples we reveal common characteristics and behavior of these botnets which will aid in the identification of new malware on Android devices.

Title : Mining Frequent Itemset by Reduced Transaction Strategic Algorithm and its Comparative Analysis with Classical Apriori Algorithm
Country : India
Authors : Manisha Bhargava || Kapil Mehta

Abstract: Association rule mining is used to find all subsets of items which frequently occur and the relationship between them. Apriori algorithm is used to find out the frequent itemset. But this algorithm is not efficient as it scans the database number of times and takes a lot of time to give the results. In order to solve this problem a new technique is put forward in this paper. The improved algorithm first creates the index of database. It also uses a temporary table technique in the generation of frequent item-set. Also the comparison of new improved algorithm is done with the existing Apriori algorithm. For the simulation the graph is plotted with time variant and data bases. The graph depicts that the improved algorithm shows better performance as compared to the existing algorithm. The improved Apriori algorithm will effectively decrease the system overhead and reduce the running time.

Title : Energy Efficient Chaining Protocol for Wireless Sensor Networks
Country : India
Authors : Harkeerat Kaur

Abstract: Energy Efficiency for wireless Sensor Network is an issue now days due to resource constraints on sensor nodes. Actually each node need different amount of energy to transmit the data because base station is located at variable distance from nodes in the network. The hierarchical protocols like LEACH, PEGASIS and HEED provide solution to energy regarding problems. Sometimes these protocols not provide a best solution or optimal solution. In this paper we have proposed a protocol for enhancing the network lifetime by proving shortest path to nodes. To achieve this design objective we have applied PEGASIS (Power Efficient GAthering in Sensor Information System) with ACO (Ant Colony Optimization) to form a data gathering chain and an efficient shortest path to the base station. In this scheme the each node communicates with a close neighbor only and sends data to that neighbor. This helps to reduce the power consumption during transmission.

Country : India
Authors : Anjali || Jitender Grover || Manpreet Singh || Charanjeet Singh || Hemant Sethi

Abstract: Load Balancing is crucial for various operations in distributed situations. Now a days, Cloud Computing is getting a lot of consideration. Users are requesting for more administrations as well as effective results. To achieve this, load balancing is necessary hence, it turned into an extremely interesting for research. In distributed environment, adequate amount of resources are required which are used in such a way that resources are not over-utilized or under-utilize in any circumstance. Many researchers suggest different approaches for load balancing. This paper shows the new approach for Dynamic Load Balancing using the concept of Agent. In this new approach, an entity known as mobile agent performs the basic task. Mobile agent is a software program which executes independently. This paper also compares the proposed protocol with the traditional scheme used for load balancing and the results concludes that the proposed approach greatly reduces the communication cost of servers, accelerates the rate of load balancing which indirectly improves the Throughput and Response Time of the cloud.

Title : Modelling of an IT2 FS on Continuous Domain with Medical Ap-plication
Country : India
Authors : Rana Waleed Hndoosh || M. S. Saroa || Sanjeev Kumar

Abstract: An overview and a derivation of interval type-2 fussy logic system (IT2 FLS), which can handle rule's uncertainties on continuous domain, having good number of applications in real world. This work fo-cused on the performance of an IT2 FLS that involves the operations of a fuzzification, inference, and output processing. The output processing consists of Type-Reduction (TR) and defuzzification. This work made IT2 FLS much more accessible to FLS modellers, because it provides mathematical formulation for calculating the de-rivatives. Presenting extend to representation of T2 FSs on continuous domain and using it to derive formulas for operations, we developed and extended the derivation of the union of two IT2 FSs to the derivation of the intersection and union of N-IT2 FSs that is based on various concepts. The derivation of all the formulas that are related with an IT2 and these formulas depend on continuous domain with multiple rules. Each rule has multiple antecedents that are activated by a crisp number with T2 singleton fuzzification (SF). Then, we have shown how those results can be extended to T2 non-singleton fuzzification (NSF). We are derived the relation-ship between the consequent and the domain of uncertainty (DOU) of the T2 fired output FS. As well as, provide the derivation of the general form at continuous domain to calculate the different kinds of type-reduced. We have also applied an IT2 FLS to medical application of Heart Diseases (HDs) and an IT2 provide rather modest performance improvements over the T1 predictor. Finally, we made a comparison of HDs result between IT2 FLS using the IT2FLS in MATLAB and the IT2 FLS in Visual C# models with T1 FISs (Mamdani, and Takagi-Sugeno).

Title : Information Hiding Using Visual Cryptography
Country : India
Authors : Manjeet Kantak || Sneha Tiwari || Prof. Gajanan Gawade

Abstract: The world-wide use of internet has increased the theft to the security of information that is being transferred from one system to another over the internet. In order to provide security to the information different information hiding methods have developed. One of the most widely used method to provide information security is the use of visual cryptography methods. Visual cryptography is a different encryption technique that provides information security by hiding the important data (Secret information) in the images. In this paper we propose a method that combines the Floyd-half-tone and Region incrementing approach to perform visual cryptography. The proposed method takes in the secret image and a different image as the cover image. The cover image is converted into the CMY color model and each CMY component is then half-toned and reverse half-toned. A random-select method is designed which processes every pixel of every region of the secret image in an incrementing method and embeds the processed pixels in each of the half-toned and reverse half-toned components. The shares are then generated by combining the half-toned and reverse-half-toned components. The secret image is obtained only after all the half-toned share is combined.
Keywords: Cover-image, CMY-color model,Floyd-halftone, Pixel-processing,Region-Incrementing,Random-select, Secret-image, Share-generation.

Title : Mutual Authentication Technique with Four Entities Using Fuzzy Neural Network in 4-G Mobile Communications
Country : India
Authors : Pijush Kanti Bhattacharjee || Sudipta Roy || Rajat Kumar Pal

Abstract: 4-G mobile communications system is offering high speed data communications technology having connectivity to all sorts of the networks including 2-G and 3-G mobile networks. Authentication of a mobile subscriber (MS) or a sub network and a main network are an important issue to check and minimize security threats or attacks. An advanced artificial intelligence based mutual authentication system applying fuzzy neural network with four entities is proposed. Voice frequency of the salutation or the selective words used by a subscriber like Hello, Good Morning etc. is taken as first entity. Second entity is chosen as thumb fingerprint matching of the calling subscriber. Then third entity is taken as face image matching of the calling subscriber. Fourth entity is granted as probability of the salutation or the greeting word from subscriber's talking habit while initializing a call. These four entities such as probability of particular range of frequencies for the salutation word, the thumb fingerprint matching, the face image matching of the subscriber by pixel cluster indexing , using particular salutation or greeting word at the time of starting a call are used with most frequently, more frequently and less frequently by the calling subscriber like uncertainty in Artificial Intelligence (AI). Now different relative grades are assigned for most frequently, more frequently and less frequently used parameters. Fuzzy operations like intersection or minimum and union or maximum are computed taking three membership functions at a time out of four membership functions to adopt fuzzy neural network. Thereafter the optimum or the final fuzzy operations are computed according to the assumed weightages. Lastly the optimized fuzzy operations are defuzzified by Composite Maxima method and the results are tested according to the invented fuzzy neural rule. If the results are satisfactory, the subscriber or the sub network and the network (the switch or the server) are mutually authenticated in 4-G mobile communications.
Keywords: Face image matching, Fuzzy neural network, Fuzzy operation, Mutual authentication, Pixel cluster indexing technique, Salutation word, Thumb fingerprint matching.
