The high-frequency limits for radio transmission are calculated from the data of vertical sounding stations. For distances < 2000 km, only the vertical data of the station at the midpoint of the path are used. To check this rule, oblique and vertical sweep-frequency records which were observed under normal and anomalous conditions were compared. If the distribution of ionization is ...

    A series of advances in the 1920s led to the introduction of the quartz oscillator to replace the mechanisms of traditional chronometers.1 Pendulum clocks typically had one beat every two seconds. Traditional mechanical chronometers used so-called “escapement” wheels that oscillated at two to five beats per second. Quartz oscillators operated in the kilohertz range: thousands of beats per second. When properly calibrated, they offered orders- of-magnitude increases of accuracy.2 It had been long known that supplying energy to a quartz crystal caused it to oscillate at a frequency determined mainly by the crystal's thickness. Other factors caused the frequency to drift, including variations in temperature, contamination of the crystal, and mechanical shock. One by one, these problems were addressed. By the late 1930s, the US National Bureau of Standards (in 1988 renamed the National Institute of Standards and Technology) was providing time services to the nation with quartz clocks that neither gained nor lost 0.004 seconds a day.

  • Cloud Computing: An Exploration of Factors Impacting Adoption

    The rapid emergence, prevalence, and potential impact of cloud computing has sparked a significant amount of interest among IS and IT research and industry. While it is widely acknowledged that cloud computing has the potential to transform the IT industry, issues surrounding cloud computing adoption have received relatively little attention. What research has been conducted has tended to focus on technical issues and often lacks empirical foundation. Drawing on a field study of 10 organizations, this study contributes to the existing cloud literature by addressing the complex and multifaceted nature of adoption. Second, it provides an insight into cloud adoption by focusing on the benefits and challenges associated with implementation in organizations. The findings are analyzed using the technology–organization–environment (TOE) framework as a lens to reveal how certain factors impact cloud adoption.

  • Cloud Security

    The cloud has emerged as a successful computing paradigm, allowing users and organizations to rely on external providers to store and process their data and make it available to others. An increasingly important priority, if there is to be wide adoption and acceptance of cloud computing, is for data owners and users to have security guarantees. Guaranteeing security means ensuring confidentiality and integrity of data, access to it, and computations with it, and ensuring availability of data and services to legitimate users in compliance with agreements with the providers. In this chapter, we present an overview of the main security issues and concerns arising in the cloud scenario, in particular with respect to the storage, management, and processing of data.

  • Overview of Security and Privacy in Cyber‐Physical Systems

    Cyber‐physical systems (CPSs) are used across domains to enable process optimization and previously unachievable functionality. The combination of networked digital systems and analog physical processes creates unique characteristics that change how security theory is applied. Neither cyber‐ nor physical‐security concepts alone can protect CPSs because the crossover effects can introduce unexpected vulnerabilities. Physical attacks may allow access to critical assets, resulting in damage or compromise of information being processed by the device, while cyber‐attacks may cause physical malfunctions, resulting in real‐world consequences. Therefore, security and privacy are key concerns for CPS design, development, and operation. In this chapter, we discuss how CPS security and privacy differ from that of pure cyber or physical systems and what may be done to secure these systems. Our goal is to help designers of emerging CPSs to build more secure, privacy‐enhanced products in the future.

  • Cloud Model

    Cloud computing is fundamentally a business model that enables organizations and individuals to outsource the ownership and operation of the compute, memory, storage, and networking of the hosts that support the organizations?> and individuals?> applications to cloud service providers. This chapter reviews the standard roles, service models, and essential characteristics of cloud computing. The chapter concludes with a brief description of cloud regions and availability zones. As this work focuses on cloud-based applications, it considers the IaaS/PaaS-to-application service boundary as the application's resource facing service boundary. To efficiently operate pools of virtual machine servers, specialized online critical operations support systems (OSSs) referred to as virtual machine server controllers are required. The following elasticity measurement concepts are used in this work: density; provisioning interval; release interval; scaling in and out; scaling up and down; agility; slew rate and linearity; and elasticity speedup.

  • Basics

    This chapter reviews the following concepts: cloud computing fundamentals; roles in cloud computing; applications; demand, supply, capacity, and fungibility; and demand variability. Cloud computing is defined as a paradigm for enabling network access to a scalable and elastic pool of shareable physical or virtual resources with self-service provisioning and administration on-demand. Applications are composed of software components that execute on physical compute, networking, memory, and storage equipment. An application instance is an operational configuration of application software components on appropriate compute, networking, memory, and storage infrastructure elements that can offer service to users. The application instance is owned and operated by an application service provider. From an economics perspective, users offer demand and application service providers offer supply; consumption is the amount of service that users enjoy in an interval of time. User pays some price to enjoy service, and service providers must cover their costs of delivering that service.

  • Symmetric Block Ciphers

    This chapter deals with some important symmetric block ciphers that have been developed in the past. They are International Data Encryption Algorithm (IDEA; 1992), RC5, RC6, Data Encryption Standard (DES), and Advanced Encryption Standard (AES). The AES, known as the Rijndael algorithm, specifies an FIPS‐approved symmetric block cipher, which will soon come to be used in lieu of Triple DES or RC6. The DES is now a basic security device employed by worldwide organizations. IDEA has a structure that can be used for both encryption and decryption, like DES. RSA Data Security, Inc. estimates that RC5 and its successor, RC6, are strong candidates for potential successors to DES.

  • Cloud Computing

    Cloud computing is a radical new IT delivery and business model. Users can use cloud services when and where they need them and in the amount they need them, and pay only for the resources used. It offers huge computing power, on-demand scalability, and utility-like availability at low cost. In this chapter, we present an overview of cloud computing concepts, cloud services, cloud-hosting models, and cloud applications. We also outline the benefits and limitations of cloud computing, identify potential risks and discuss the prospects for the cloud and what businesses and individuals can do to successfully embrace cloud computing. Finally, we discuss clouds?> prospects and implications for businesses and IT professionals.
