21. The Case for Simulation-Based Evaluation of Ubiquitous Computing Environments
Published: 1/25/2000
Authors: Alden A Dima, L P Clarletta
Abstract: Ubiquitous computing (a.k.a. pervasive computing) is ill-defined due to its novelty and the community's current emphasis on its technological aspects. This can lead to serious \existential issues during the evaluation of ubiquitous computing technolo ...

22. A Conceptual Model for Pervasive Computing
Published: 1/1/2000
Authors: L P Ciarletta, Alden A Dima
Abstract: As an emerging field, pervasive computing has not had the opportunity to develop a conceptual model similar to the OSI Reference Model used to describe computer networks. Such a model would be useful to properly classify issues raised during discussi ...

23. Flits: Pervasive Computing for Processor and Memory Constrained Systems
Published: 1/1/2000
Authors: William J Majurski, Alden A Dima, Mary T Laamanen
Abstract: Many pervasive computing software technologies are targeted for 32-bit desktop platforms. However, there are innumerable 8, 16, and 32-bit microcontroller and microprocessor-based embedded systems that do not support the resource requirements of thes ...

24. Using XML in a Software Diagnostic Tool
Published: 12/6/1999
Author: Alden A Dima
Abstract: Many development tools such as execution tracing tools generate a large amount of text output. The large quantity of text make it hard for the user to sort through and make sense of the output. In addition, the output is often formatted in a manner t ...

25. Raising the Bar on Software Security Testing
Published: 6/1/1999
Authors: Alden A Dima, John P Wack, S A. Wakid
Abstract: This article describes an effort lead by NIST and NSA to define and promote an open and commercially driven set of testing methods for software security through the National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP) (see This p ...

26. VRML Test Case Generation and Evaluation Using Java
Published: 6/1/1998
Authors: Leonard E. Gebase, Mary C Brady, Alden A Dima, Lynne S. Rosenthal
Abstract: A well-established approach to conformance testing is to treat the implementation being tested as a black box. With this approach, a reference implementation is built to control and evaluate the implementation being tested, and a supporting implement ...
