    In the same way that the IMAP protocol provides secure, ubiquitous access to a user's email, an analogous protocol is desirable to enable user access to an organized collection of URL links that comprise a private mapping of the Web document space. This paper describes the design and staged implementation of a SLINKY server that meets these goals. View full abstract»

    Two kinds of multimedia conferencing bridging systems are examined: peer-to-peer and network-based bridging architecture. The investigation shows that the network-based system outperforms the peer-to-peer architecture in saving the bandwidth in the access link as well as within the network especially for audio and video. However, peer-to-peer bridging appears to be optimal for data View full abstract»

    Multimedia streams usually have an inherent hierarchy and an inter-independency of subsequent blocks in their data structures. Dealing with these features within the operating system and the network brings a global resource usage improvement. We propose a new method for media scaling based on two complementary techniques: circular buffers and filtering. We describe an MPEG distributed application ... View full abstract»

    Agent systems face all the security challenges involved with any system that sends messages. Delegating tasks to mobile programs, or to supposedly intelligent ones, raises another set of concerns. Agent-based systems also increase the connectedness and the complexity of the computing universe. As connectedness and complexity increase, new failure modes arise, some of which have security implicatio... View full abstract»
