    The accuracy of detecting intrusions within a Collaborative Intrusion Detection Network (CIDN) depends on the efficiency of collaboration between peer Intrusion Detection Systems (IDSes) as well as the security itself of the CIDN. In this paper, we propose Dirichlet-based trust management to measure the level of trust among IDSes according to their mutual experience. An acquaintance management alg... View full abstract»

    Grid scheduling is essential to Quality of Service provisioning as well as to efficient management of grid resources. Grid scheduling usually considers the state of the grid resources as well application demands. However, such demands are generally unknown for highly demanding applications, since these often generate data which will be transferred during their execution. Without appropriate assess...

    Dynamic application placement for clustered web applications heavily influences system performance and quality of user experience. Existing approaches claim that they strive to maximize the throughput, keep resource utilization balanced across servers, and minimize the start/stop cost of application instances. However, they fail to minimize the worst case of server utilization; the load balancing ... View full abstract»

    Since their emergence peer-to-peer (P2P) applications have been generating a considerable fraction of the over all transferred bandwidth in broadband networks. Residential broadband service has been moving from one geared towards technology enthusiasts and early adopters to a commodity for a large fraction of households. Thus, the question whether P2P is still the dominant application in terms of ... View full abstract»

    Component level performance thresholds are widely used as a basic means for performance management. As the complexity of managed applications increases, manual threshold maintenance becomes a difficult task. Complexity arises from having a large number of application components and their operational metrics, dynamically changing workloads, and compound relationships between application components....

  • Spectral Models for Bitrate Measurement from Packet Sampled Traffic

    In network measurement systems, packet sampling techniques are usually adopted to reduce the overall amount of data to collect and process. Being based on a subset of packets, they introduce estimation errors that have to be properly counteracted by using a fine tuning of the sampling strategy and sophisticated inversion methods. This problem has been deeply investigated in the literature with par... View full abstract»

  • Efficient Network Modification to Improve QoS Stability at Failures

    When a link or node fails, flows are detoured around the failed portion, so the hop count of flows and the link load could change dramatically as a result of the failure. As real-time traffic such as video or voice increases on the Internet, ISPs are required to provide stable quality as well as connectivity at failures. For ISPs, how to effectively improve the stability of these qualities at fail... View full abstract»
