Real-Time MCLT Audio Watermarking and Comparison of Several Whitening Methods in Receptor Side

Jose Juan Garcia Hernandez; Mariko Nakano Miyatake; Hector Perez Meana Eighth IEEE International Symposium on Multimedia (ISM'06), 2006

A real-time audio watermarking scheme is presented. The strength of audio signal modifications is limited by the necessity to produce an output signal that is perceptually equal to the original signal. The proposed scheme uses a blind detection approach. To embed the watermark a spread spectrum algorithm is used in the modulated complex lapped transform (MCLT) domain. Here the watermark ...

On the Use of Compression Algorithms for Network Anomaly Detection

C. Callegari; S. Giordano; M. Pagano 2009 IEEE International Conference on Communications, 2009

In the last few years, the number and impact of security attacks over the Internet have been continuously increasing. Since it seems impossible to guarantee complete protection to a system by means of the "classical" prevention mechanisms, the use of Intrusion Detection Systems has emerged as a key element in network security. In this paper we address the problem considering ...


Security of LBlock-s against related-key differential attack

Jì nyong Shan; Lei Hu; Siwei Sun Electronics and Communication Systems (ICECS), 2015 2nd International Conference on, 2015

LBlock-s is a 32-round lightweight block cipher and is a simplified version of the LBlock block cipher, which was proposed to achieve an efficiency improvement of implementation but not to weaken its security. It uses 10 identical 4-bit S-boxes instead of 10 different 4-bit S-boxes in LBlock to reduce the cost in hardware and software implementation. Although better bounds on ...


Orthogonal DPSK/CSK Modulation and Public-Key Cryptography-Based Secure Optical Communication

Bo Dai; Zhensen Gao; Naoya Wada; Xu Wang IEEE Photonics Technology Letters, 2013

In this letter, the information security of an optical code-based communication system employing orthogonal differential phase-shift keying (DPSK)/code-shift keying (CSK) modulation is first investigated using two eaves dropping methods, one-bit delay interference detection and differential detection. The investigation results show that the security vulnerability exists only in the CSK channel while the DPSK channel can thwart these attacks. Therefore, the ...

  • Introduction

    Telecommunication has never been perfectly secure. The Cold War culture of recording devices in telephone receivers and bugged embassy offices has been succeeded by a post-9/11 world of NSA wiretaps and demands for data retention. Although the 1990s battle for individual and commercial freedom to use cryptography was won, growth in the use of cryptography has been slow. Meanwhile, regulations requiring that the computer and communication industries build spying into their systems for government convenience have increased rapidly. The application of the 1994 Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act has expanded beyond the intent of Congress to apply to voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and other modern data services; attempts are being made to require ISPs to retain their data for years in case the government wants it; and data mining techniques developed for commercial marketing applications are being applied to widespread surveillance of the population. InPrivacy on the Line, Whitfield Diffie and Susan Landau strip away the hype surrounding the policy debate over privacy to examine the national security, law enforcement, commercial, and civil liberties issues. They discuss the social function of privacy, how it underlies a democratic society, and what happens when it is lost. This updated and expanded edition revises their original--and prescient--discussions of both policy and technology in light of recent controversies over NSA spying and other government threats to communications privacy.

  • The Don

    Our hero is Turing, an interactive tutoring program and namesake (or virtual emanation?) of Alan Turing, World War II code breaker and father of computer science. In this unusual novel, Turing's idiosyncratic version of intellectual history from a computational point of view unfolds in tandem with the story of a love affair involving Ethel, a successful computer executive, Alexandros, a melancholy archaeologist, and Ian, a charismatic hacker. After Ethel (who shares her first name with Alan Turing's mother) abandons Alexandros following a sundrenched idyll on Corfu, Turing appears on Alexandros's computer screen to unfurl a tutorial on the history of ideas. He begins with the philosopher- mathematicians of ancient Greece -- "discourse, dialogue, argument, proof... can only thrive in an egalitarian society" -- and the Arab scholar in ninth- century Baghdad who invented algorithms; he moves on to many other topics, including cryptography and artificial intelligence, even economics and developmental biology. (These lessons are later critiqued amusingly and developed further in postings by a fictional newsgroup in the book's afterword.) As Turing's lectures progress, the lives of Alexandros, Ethel, and Ian converge in dramatic fashion, and the story takes us from Corfu to Hong Kong, from Athens to San Francisco -- and of course to the Internet, the disruptive technological and social force that emerges as the main locale and protagonist of the novel.Alternately pedagogical and romantic, Turing (A Novel about Computation) should appeal both to students and professionals who want a clear and entertaining account of the development of computation and to the general reader who enjoys novels of ideas.

  • TESLA-based Broadcast Authentication

    This chapter explores ways to use fast symmetric cryptography to protect vehicular communications, but without direct involvement of RSUs. It focuses on the timed efficient stream loss-tolerant authentication (TESLA) authentication protocol, which is commonly used in securing broadcast and multicast communication. In addition, since only a short message authentication code (MAC) tag is attached to each message, the extra message length and the bandwidth overhead due to the security mechanism can be significantly reduced. The chapter presents the design of a TESLA-based broadcast authentication scheme for vehicular communication, termed TSVC. It begins by providing a brief introduction to the techniques used here, which serve as the basis for the proposed scheme, and then presents the scheme. Finally, the chapter analyzes security through rigorous analysis and conducts performance evaluations through extensive simulation.
