    Contributory group key agreement protocols generate group keys based on contributions of all group members. Particularly appropriate for relatively small collaborative peer groups, these protocols are resilient to many types of attacks. Unlike most group key distribution protocols, contributory group key agreement protocols offer strong security properties such as key independence and perfect forw... View full abstract»

    With the dramatic explosion of online information, the Internet is undergoing a transition from a data communication infrastructure to a global information utility. PDAs, wireless phones, Web-enabled vehicles, modem PCs, and high-end workstations can be viewed as appliances that "plug-in" to this utility for information. The increasing diversity of such appliances calls for an architecture for per... View full abstract»

    The problem of distributed diagnosis in the presence of dynamic failures and repairs is considered. To address this problem, the notion of bounded correctness is defined. Bounded correctness is made up of three properties: bounded diagnostic latency, which ensures that information about state changes of nodes in the system reaches working nodes with a bounded delay, bounded start-up time, which gu...

  • A proportional-delay DiffServ-enabled Web server: admission control and dynamic adaptation

    We consider a Web server that can provide differentiated services to clients with different quality of service (QoS) requirements. The Web server can provide N≥1 classes of proportional-delay differentiated services (PDDS) to heterogeneous clients. An operator can specify fixed performance spacings between classes, namely, ri,i+1>1, for i=1,..., N-1. Requests in class i+1 are guarant... View full abstract»

  • On generalized max-min rate allocation and distributed convergence algorithm for packet networks

    We consider the fundamental problem of bandwidth allocation among flows in a packet-switched network. The classical max-min rate allocation has been widely regarded as a fair rate allocation policy. But, for a flow with a minimum rate requirement and a peak rate constraint, the classical max-min policy no longer suffices to determine rate allocation since it is not capable of supporting either the...

    Software pipelining is an instruction scheduling technique that exploits the instruction level parallelism (ILP) available in loops by overlapping operations from various successive loop iterations. The main drawback of aggressive software pipelining techniques is their high register requirements. If the requirements exceed the number of registers available in the target architecture, some steps n... View full abstract»

  • Minimal cost replication of dynamic Web contents under flat update delivery

    Dynamic Web contents are generated by running application programs on base data which often change frequently. Geographically replicating the applications that construct these contents (including the programs and the related data they access) is an effective approach to improve their access latency. To maintain the freshness of an object replica, the new version of the object either has to be fetc... View full abstract»
