• This is the second volume of proceedings including selected papers from the International Conference on IT Convergence and Security (ICITCS) 2017, presenting a snapshot of the latest issues encountered in the field. It explores how IT convergence and security issues are core to most current research, industrial and commercial activities and consists of contributions covering topics including machine learning & deep learning, communication and signal processing, computer vision and applications, future network technology, artificial intelligence and robotics. ICITCS 2017 is the latest in a series of highly successful International Conferences on IT Convergence and Security, previously held in Prague, Czech Republic (2016), Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (2015), Beijing, China (2014), Macau, China (2013), Pyeong Chang, Korea (2012), and Suwon, Korea (2011).

  • This book introduces fundamentals and trade-offs of data de-duplication techniques. It describes novel emerging de-duplication techniques that remove duplicate data both in storage and network in an efficient and effective manner. It explains places where duplicate data are originated, and provides solutions that remove the duplicate data. It classifies existing de-duplication techniques depending on size of unit data to be compared, the place of de-duplication, and the time of de-duplication. Chapter 3 considers redundancies in email servers and a de-duplication technique to increase reduction performance with low overhead by switching chunk-based de-duplication and file-based de-duplication. Chapter 4 develops a de-duplication technique applied for cloud-storage service where unit data to be compared are not physical-format but logical structured-format, reducing processing time efficiently. Chapter 5 displays a network de-duplication where redundant data packets sent by clients are encoded (shrunk to small-sized payload) and decoded (restored to original size payload) in routers or switches on the way to remote servers through network. Chapter 6 introduces a mobile de-duplication technique with image (JPEG) or video (MPEG) considering performance and overhead of encryption algorithm for security on mobile device.

  • This book contains selected papers from the 9th International Conference on Information Science and Applications (ICISA 2018) and provides a snapshot of the latest issues encountered in technical convergence and convergences of security technology. It explores how information science is core to most current research, industrial and commercial activities and consists of contributions covering topics including Ubiquitous Computing, Networks and Information Systems, Multimedia and Visualization, Middleware and Operating Systems, Security and Privacy, Data Mining and Artificial Intelligence, Software Engineering, and Web Technology. The proceedings introduce the most recent information technology and ideas, applications and problems related to technology convergence, illustrated through case studies, and reviews converging existing security techniques. Through this volume, readers will gain an understanding of the current state-of-the-art information strategies and technologies of convergence security. The intended readership includes researchers in academia, industry and other research institutes focusing on information science and technology.

  • This book mainly focuses on cloud security and high performance computing for cloud auditing. The book discusses emerging challenges and techniques developed for high performance semantic cloud auditing, and presents the state of the art in cloud auditing, computing and security techniques with focus on technical aspects and feasibility of auditing issues in federated cloud computing environments.  In summer 2011, the United States Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) CyberBAT Cloud Security and Auditing Team initiated the exploration of the cloud security challenges and future cloud auditing research directions that are covered in this book. This work was supported by the United States government funds from the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR), the AFOSR Summer Faculty Fellowship Program (SFFP), the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) Visiting Faculty Research Program (VFRP), the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the National Institute of Health (NIH). All chapters were partially supported by the AFOSR Information Operations and Security Program extramural and intramural funds (AFOSR/RSL Program Manager: Dr. Robert Herklotz). Key Features:·         Contains surveys of cyber threats and security issues in cloud computing and presents secure cloud architectures ·         Presents in-depth cloud auditing techniques, federated cloud security architectures, cloud access control models, and access assured information sharing technologies ·         Outlines a wide range of challenges and provides solutions to manage and control very large and complex data sets 

  • This book highlights the challenges and potential of educational learning or industry-based training using serious games and social media platforms. In particular, the book addresses applications used in businesses and education-related organizations in Asia, where the framework and experience of serious games have been used to address specific problems in the real world. The topics that will be present in this book includes future of serious games and immersive technologies and their impact on society; online and mobile games; achievement systems in serious games; persuasive technology and games for saving and money management; malware analytics for social networking; serious games for mental health interventions; educational implications of social network games; learning and acquiring subject knowledge using serious games in classrooms. The target audience for this book includes scientists, engineers and practitioners involved in the field of Serious Games. The major part of this book comprises of papers that have been presented at the Serious Games and Social Connect 2012 conference held in Singapore (October 4, 2012). All the contributions have been peer reviewed and by scientific committee members with report about quality, content and originality.
