Cloud computing is a new consumption and delivery model for IT services. The cloud has become an attractive platform for enterprises to deploy and execute their business services for business to business (B2B) and government to government (G2G) collaborations, etc. There are many concerns about cloud computing especially in terms of security, privacy and trust. These main issues have prevented businesses from fully accepting cloud platforms. Cloud computing demands three primary security requirements: confidentiality, integrity, and availability. In this paper we discuss some these issues by reviewing a recently proposed model [1] that interestingly handles secure messaging among services deployed within the same cloud or on different clouds. Then, we report on our ongoing work which is based on enhancing and developing this model. This is mainly achieved by adding a new service layer which is responsible for offering a high level of trust between collaborative parties. The added layer facilitates the integration of this model with the Public-Key Infrastructure (PKI). The main objective of the developed model is to increase the trust of the whole system by preventing any unauthorized party from joining the connectivity service. Indeed, our system can prevent any involved organization from launching masquerade attacks

present research was aimed to implement a new Steganographic algorithm for colored images in Vector Quantization (VQ) compressed domain, since the compressed image considers a secure cover for data to be embedded to avoid attention of unauthorized persons. Also, it saves the cost and time of transmission and storage. The new algorithm aimed to increase the embedding capacity with maintaining the image quality as well as reducing the time of the extraction process. The algorithm was implemented using Matlab 2009a. It embedded two bits in each index depending on mod 4, and secret key shared between sender and receiver. The algorithm used grayscale and RGB images for (JPG) of different resolutions after compression in order to be used as a cover of secret data which were either as text or image. In the research, the new algorithm provided an acceptable image quality despite of the high embedding capacity that occupy the cover image completely, Also, the codebook was not needed for data extraction which led to reducing the extraction time significantly

Cloud computing is new technology that provides cheaper, easier, and more powerful processes to customers over internet. The cloud service provider (CSP) provides virtualized resources on Internet instead of using software or storage on a local computer. The economic benefits are the main reason for using cloud computing. Cloud computing dynamically delivers everything as a service (XaaS) over the internet based on user demand, such as network, operating system, storage, hardware, software, and resources. Thus, many security and privacy issues must be taken into consideration. The services of cloud computing are usually classified into three types: Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Software as a Service (SaaS). This paper aims to achieve two main goals. The first is to review the field of cloud computing with an emphasis on the identity and access management (IAM) in the cloud. Secondly, we will report on our ongoing work for developing a novel system for IAM based on the techniques of Identity-Based Cryptography (IBC) security mediated cryptography. The proposed system architecture will be outlined along with some of the major operational steps.

Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are infrastructure-less and resource constraint networks composed of many sensor nodes. These sensors collect information from the area of sense and deliver that information to the base station. WSNs are usually deployed in unattended environment and like other networks need to be secured. In order to secure WSNs, firstly cryptography keys must be distributed in a secure and robust way. Key management problem is rapidly studied in the static WSNs, but it has not been studied thoroughly in mobile (or dynamic) WSNs. When mobility is introduced within WSNs, many challenges and new characteristics appear in the security model. Security requirements for mobile WSNs include authentication, confidentiality, and integrity. The key management scheme represents the corner stone for achieving security services. In this paper, we propose a key management scheme for mobile WSNs which based on track-sector clustering in the roaming area. The proposed system is relying on symmetric cryptography for achieving its goals. The paper represents a work-in-progress report on our advance in the development of this proposal.

it be known that the chaotic phenomena can be obtained from relatively simple systems that are governed by a small number of variables. The system will then be deterministic, although its behaviour is unforeseeable. The chaotic generator hereby suggested is implemented under the 7.0 version of MATLAB software. It makes use exclusively, of the fundamental properties of chaotic systems; that are sensitivity to initial conditions and equations of strange attractor. All is done in order to set up systems with protected transmissions. As a matter of fact and in the long term, the unforeseeable behaviour of such systems is very much related to the extreme sensitivity of initials conditions. Another fundamental property is that the chaotic system is characterized by a strange attractor, within the space of state.

Finger prints are the oldest and most widely used form of biometric identification. Despite the widespread use of fingerprints, there is little statistical theory on the uniqueness of fingerprint minutiae. Fingerprint matching is the process used to determine whether two sets of fingerprint ridge detail come from the same finger. There exist multiple algorithms that do fingerprint matching in many different ways. Some methods involve matching minutiae points between the two images, In this paper used median filter to enhance the images, and then use DCT (Discrete Cosine Transform) and FDCvT Via Wrapping to compute the feature extraction from the images. The Template Matching can be applied by finding the more similar values between the original image and the template.The proposed system includes two stages: first stage is implemented by taking individual natural fingerprint images with several positions and calculation of the features vector (Mean and standard deviation) by using FDCvT via Wrapping and DCT. The second stage is implemented by taking several samples of new fingerprint images for testing the work. The results show that the fingerprints Recognition rate by the (FDCvT via Wrapping and DCT) achieves better recognition rate (84%).

Journal of University of Anbar for Pure Science, 2012, Volume 6, Issue 2, Pages 124-134
DOI: 10.37652/juaps.2012.63369

In this paper, the 1st order Gaussian derivative wavelet function utilized in the design of some corresponding filter banks. Since the 1st order Gaussian derivative function has a similar shape to QRS complex part of the ECG, it can be used in QRS feature extraction. Using this characteristic of such wavelet function, the designed FIR wavelet filter banks can be realized in highly-efficient lattice structures which are easy to implement in two standard deviation values ( σ=1 and σ=2 ). The resulting lattice structures reduce the number of filter banks coefficients and this reduces, in turn the number of multiplications and improves the filter banks efficiencies as it reduces the number of computations performed. The resulting quantized multiplier values can also lead to multiplierless realizations using sum-of-power-of-two (SOPOT) method. FPGA implementations of such structures are achieved with less-complexity.
