Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 800-146
Topic: Networking
Published: 5/29/2012
Authors: Mark L Badger, Timothy Grance, Robert Patt-Corner, Jeffrey Mark Voas
Abstract: This document reprises the NIST-established definition of cloud computing, describes cloud computing benefits and open issues, presents an overview of major classes of cloud technology, and provides guidelines and recommendations on how organizations ...

22. Specification for WS-Biometric Devices (WS-BD)
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 500-288
Topic: Networking
Published: 3/14/2012
Authors: Ross J Micheals, Kevin C Mangold, Matthew L Aronoff, Kayee Kwong, Karen Marshall

23. Guidelines for Securing Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs)
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 800-153
Topic: Networking
Published: 2/21/2012
Authors: Murugiah P Souppaya, Karen Ann Scarfone
Abstract: A wireless local area network (WLAN) is a group of wireless networking devices within a limited geographic area, such as an office building, that exchange data through radio communications. The security of each WLAN is heavily dependent on how well e ...

24. Analysis of Advanced Metering over a Wide Area Cellular Network
Topic: Networking
Published: 10/17/2011
Authors: Michael R Souryal, Nada T Golmie
Abstract: This paper presents a framework for analysis of the coverage and capacity of advanced metering over a wide area cellular network. The coverage analysis predicts the maximum cell size subject to an outage criterion, and the capacity analysis predicts ...

25. Interference Mitigation for Body Area Networks
Topic: Networking
Published: 9/12/2011
Authors: Wen-Bin Yang, Kamran Sayrafian
Abstract: Due to ultra-low power communication, BAN is most likely a victim system. Interference from other BANs or other coexisting wireless communication systems may be significant. Power control is usually inefficient and may even cause more interference in ...

26. Linear Dispersion Codes for Asynchronous Cooperative MIMO Systems
Topic: Networking
Published: 6/1/2011
Author: Hamid Gharavi
Abstract: In this treatise, we propose a novel family of Asynchronous Cooperative Linear Dispersion Codes (ACLDCs), which is capable of maintaining full diversity in cooperative scenarios even at the presence of asynchronous reception. The linear dispersion ...

27. Multigate Communication Network For Smart Grid
Topic: Networking
Published: 6/1/2011
Author: Hamid Gharavi
Abstract: It is envisioned that one of the most important issues in Smart Grid will be to design a network architecture that is capable of providing secure and reliable two-way communication from meters to other Smart Grid domains. While networking technologie ...

28. Modeling queuing dynamics of TCP: a simple model and its empirical validation.
Topic: Networking
Published: 5/6/2011
Authors: Daniel Ilya Genin, Anastase Nakassis
Abstract: Understanding queuing dynamics of TCP is important for correct router buffer sizing as well as for optimizing the performance of the TCP protocol itself. However, modeling of buffer content dynamics under TCP has received relatively little attent ...

29. Guidelines for the Secure Deployment of IPv6
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 800-119
Topic: Networking
Published: 12/29/2010
Authors: Sheila E Frankel, Richard Graveman, John Pearce, Mark Rooks
Abstract: Due to the exhaustion of IPv4 address space, and the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) mandate that U.S. federal agencies begin to use the IPv6 protocol, NIST undertook the development of a guide to help educate federal agencies about the possibl ...

30. Security Assurance Levels: A Vector Approach to Describing Security Requirements
Series: OTHER
Topic: Networking
Published: 10/20/2010
Authors: James D Gilsinn, Ragnar Schierholz
Abstract: Safety systems have used the concept of safety integrity levels (SILs) for almost two decades. This allows the safety of a component or system to be represented by a single number that defines a protection factor required to ensure the health and saf ...
