191. Performance Evaluation of Low Rate WPANs for Sensors and Medical Applications
Topic: Networking
Published: 11/1/2004
Authors: Nada T Golmie, David E Cypher, O Rebala
Abstract: We examine the performance of multimodal biometric authentication systems using state-of-the-art Commercial Off-the-Shelf (COTS) fingerprint and face biometric systems on a population approaching 1,000 individuals. Majority of prior studies of multi ...

192. Optical Control and Management Security Standards for the GIG-BE
Topic: Networking
Published: 10/31/2004
Authors: Renee Esposito, Sheila E Frankel, Richard Graveman, Scott McNown
Abstract: This paper presents an overview of requirements and standards development activities for securing the control and management infrastructure protocols for optical networking protocols used in the Global Information Grid-Bandwidth Expansion (GIG-BE). O ...

193. Monitoring the Macroscopic Effect of DDoS Flooding Attacks
Topic: Networking
Published: 10/1/2004
Authors: Kevin L Mills, J Yuan

194. Resource Planning and Bandwidth Allocation in Hybrid Fiber-Coax Residential Networks
Topic: Networking
Published: 10/1/2004
Authors: David Wesley Griffith, Kotikalapudi Sriram, L Krivulina, Nada T Golmie
Abstract: We have implemented a quantum key distribution (QKD) system with polarization encoding at 850 nm over 1 km of optical fiber. The high-speed management of the bit-stream, generation of random numbers and processing of the sifting algorithm are all ha ...

195. A Cross-Correlation Based Method for Spatial-Temporal Traffic Analysis
Topic: Networking
Published: 3/10/2004
Authors: Kevin L Mills, J Yuan
Abstract: Analyzing spatial-temporal characteristics of traffic in large-scale networks requires both suitable analysis method and a means to reduce the amount of data that must be collected. Of particular interest would be techniques that reduce the amount o ...

196. Network Security Testing
Series: ITL Bulletin
Topic: Networking
Published: 11/1/2003
Author: Shirley M. Radack
Abstract: This ITL Bulletin summarizes NIST Special Publication 800-42, Guideline on Network Security Testing, by John Wack, Miles Tracy, and Murugiah Souppaya, which assists organizations in testing their Internet-connected and operational systems. The guide ...

197. Understanding Self-Healing in Service-Discovery Systems
Topic: Networking
Published: 11/1/2003
Authors: Christopher E Dabrowski, Kevin L Mills
Abstract: Service-discovery systems aim to provide consistent views of distributed components under varying network conditions. To achieve this aim, designers rely upon a variety of self-healing strategies, including: architecture and topology, failure-detect ...

198. Guideline on Network Security Testing
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 800-42
Topic: Networking
Published: 10/15/2003
Authors: John P Wack, Tracy Miles, Murugiah P Souppaya
Abstract: [Superseded by NIST SP 800-115, Technical Guide to Information Security Testing and Assessment,] The purpose of this document is to provide guidance for security program manager, tec ...

199. Adaptive Jitter Control for UPnP M-Search
Topic: Networking
Published: 5/1/2003
Authors: Kevin L Mills, Christopher E Dabrowski
Abstract: Selected service-discovery systems allow clients to issue multicast queries to locate network devices and services. Qualifying devices and services respond directly to clients; thus, in a large network, potential exists for responses to implode on a ...

200. Understanding Consistency Maintenance in Service Discovery Architectures During Communication Failure
Topic: Networking
Published: 7/1/2002
Authors: Christopher E Dabrowski, Kevin L Mills, J R Elder
Abstract: Current trends suggest future software systems will comprise collections of components that combine and recombine dynamically in reaction to changing conditions. Service-discovery protocols, which enable software components to locate available softw ...
