    The resource reservation protocol (RSVP) lets hosts request quality of (bandwidth) service for multicast applications on the Internet. As network equipment advances to provide improved bandwidth service, security service becomes the more critical problem. However, RSVP doesn't provide a flexible mechanism to support quality of security service (QoSS). Security service RSVP extends RSVP to provide ... View full abstract»

    The authors' proposed antiphishing strategy uses visual characteristics to identify potential phishing sites and measure suspicious pages similarity to actual sites registered with the system. The first of two sequential processes in the SiteWatcher system runs on local email servers and monitors emails for keywords and suspicious URLs. The second process then compares the potential phishing pages... View full abstract»

    Having indexed much of the "surface" Web, search engines are now using various approaches to index the "deep" Web. At the same time, institutional repositories and digital libraries are adopting the open archives initiative protocol for metadata harvesting (OAI-PMH) to expose their holdings. The authors harvested nearly 10 million records from OAI-PMH repositories. From these records, they extract... View full abstract»

    In search of a job after graduating from college, Meg Kemp posts her resume online. Norton Steuben, a retired law professor, hasn't looked for employment in more than 35 years and rarely uses the Internet, yet his law school maintains his curriculum vita online. Although such activity might seem innocuous, information in both these online resumes initially put Meg and Norton in danger of becoming ... View full abstract»

    This issue of IEEE Internet Computing is focused on data-driven applications in sensor networks, which, in a literal sense, might not seem to have much to do with user experience (UE). We are hoping to offer some insights into how UE people might think about this problem area and others like it, what issues they might raise, and what opportunities could arise by considering those issues. The final... View full abstract»

    The days of C++-only or Java-only middleware systems are numbered, and dynamic scripting languages will soon become an important part of middleware development. When it comes to Web development, scripting languages such as Perl, Python, Ruby, PHP, and Javascript seem to rule the roost. Java has some presence there as well, of course, in the form of servlets JavaServer Pages and JavaServer Faces, a... View full abstract»
