    The DNS is a service that translates easy-to-remember alphabetic URLs into Web sites' actual numerical IP addresses. The system enables users to easily access the Web sites they want to visit and thus is a critical part of Internet operations. DDoS attacks can overwhelm servers with hacker-generated traffic and thereby make them unavailable for legitimate communications. These assaults are a serio... View full abstract»

    Formal statistical analysis of defect databases for two commercial client-server products for disparate applications - C-language parsing and geophysical modeling - tests the hypothesis that defects in the graphical client mask more important underlying defects in the computational server. It also quantifies the benefit of continued testing after delivery in terms of reduced software defect densit... View full abstract»

    Human-centered computing (HCC) involves conforming computer technology to humans while naturally achieving human-machine interaction. In a human-centered system, the interaction focuses on human requirements, capabilities, and limitations. These anthropocentric systems also focus on the consideration of human sensory-motor skills in a wide range of activities. This ensures that the interface betwe... View full abstract»
