Title

Multi-Dimensional Dynamic Trust Management Mechanism in Underwater Acoustic Sensor Networks

Abstract

The underwater acoustic sensor network (UASN) is the core module to realize the "smart ocean". At present, the UASN has not yet fully played its role in the complex water environment. The fundamental reason lies in the lack of effective methods to ensure network security and reliable data transmission. This report mainly introduces the team's research work on the trust management mechanism of UASNs. The main research contents include: 1) Intrusion detection algorithm based on energy consumption prediction model; 2) Multi-dimensional trust calculation algorithm based on fuzzy theory; 3) Trust evaluation algorithm based on cloud theory; 4) Trust cloud migration mechanism based on AUV; 5) Trust update mechanism based on reinforcement learning; 6) Anomaly-resilient trust modelbased on isolation forest. The research results have important theoretical value and practical significance for exploring the security technology and application of UASNs.

A Survey of Decentralizing Applications via Blockchain:The 5G and Beyond Perspective

Abstract

Trusted third parties (TTPs) are frequently used for serving as an authority to issue and verify transactions in applications. Although the TTP-based paradigm provides customers with convenience, it causes a whole set of inevitable problems such as security threats, privacy vulnerabilities, and censorship. The TTP-based paradigm is not suitable for all modern networks, e.g., 5G and beyond networks, which are been evolving to support ubiquitous, decentralized, and autonomous services. Driven by the vision of blockchain technologies, there has been a paradigm shift in applications, from TTP-based to decentralizedtrust-based. Decentralized applications (DApps) with blockchains promise no trust on authorities, tackling the key challenges of security and privacy problems. A main thrust of blockchain research is to explore frameworks and paradigms for decentralizing applications, fostering a number of new designs ranging from network architectures to business models. Therefore, the report provides a compact and concise survey on the state-ofthe-art research of decentralizing applications with blockchain in the 5G and beyond perspective. The four burning 5G and beyond challenges and five aspects of motivation for decentralizing applications with blockchain are presented. Then, nine fundamental modules of blockchains and the potential influence of these modules on decentralization are also explained in depth. The report also discusses the interrelation between decentralization and some desired blockchain properties. Particularly, the capabilities of blockchain for decentralizing applications through reviewing DApps for 5G and beyond are presented. Three blockchain paradigms and how developers to make right choices for 5G and beyond are clearly distinguished. Finally, learned lessons and open issues in applying blockchain for decentralizing applications are highlighted. Lessons learned and open issues from this report will facilitate the transformation of centralized applications to DApps.

 The Internet of Nano-Things

Abstract

Perceptual systems at the microscopic scale promise brand new solutions for numerous applications in many domains, especially in medical and industry fields. The Internet of Nano-Things(IoNT), a perceptual system at nano scale, due to its great application potential and special characteristics, has become a research hot spot in recent years.  Free space path loss, signal absorption, as well as reflections, refractions, and diffractions caused by physical objects within the micro environment are radically different compared  with the traditional networks, which requires innovative communication mechanism in nanoscale. In this talk, I will discuss the signal interference and coverage range issues of communication in IoNT in a three-dimensional scenario, and present up-level protocols designed for IoNT. Evaluation via simulations highlights the potential of the new protocols for IoNT system.

The next G (r)evolution passes through the sky

Subtitle

Advances in research that stress the role of satellite networks to win the challenge of present 5G and future 6G.

Abstract

5G is being to be deployed and commercial service already started. The full exploitation of its capabilities is far to be achieved because so far only the physical layer innovations were actually implemented and in limited bandwidths, while all the network management capabilities shall be enjoyed in the next future. Research efforts have been dedicated to progress in the design and development of innovative functions to properly and fruitfully use the satellite to complement terrestrial component aiming to satisfy the requirements of 5G. Moreover, the adaption of the communication standard has been pursued in 3GPP and ITU context.  Also 6G started to be conceived and the start of its standardization process is already scheduled Megaconstellations are being deployed and seem to be the technical solution for a significant use of space to provide connectivity but, on the basis of available information, some considerations about their correlation with 5G and 6G will be shared.

NMF-based Local Community Detection in Social Networks

Abstract

Local community detection consists of finding a group of nodes closely related to the seeds, a small set of nodes of interest. Such group of nodes are densely connected or have a high probability of being connected internally than their connections to other clusters in the network. Some local community detection methods focus on finding a single community for each of the seeds. However, a seed member usually belongs to multiple local overlapping communities. We discuss Nonnegative Matrix Factorization (NMF)-based algorithms for multiple local community detection supervised by a single seed.

1) The first method denoted as N-MLC consists of three main steps: (a) local sampling with a breadth-first search (BFS) up to several levels depending on the network density (3 levels by default); (b) using Nonnegative Matrix Factorization (NMF) to learn the structure of the sampled subgraph and generate soft community membership indicators for each vertex of the subgraph.

2) The second method, denoted as S-MLC is an improved version of N-MLC in terms of local sampling and estimation of the number of communities which in turn improves community detection accuracy. Here the Personalized PageRank (PPR) is used for local sampling, and a sparse NMF (SNMF) to estimate and detect communities. Another method of estimating the number of communities based on the sparsity behavior of SNMF decompositions is proposed. It is based on the sparse coding idea which aims to find few representatives of a large population. In a community detection context, each node belongs to a few communities which should be shown by the output of SNMF decomposition. The main task is to find a suitable number of components (number of communities) that can be activated to represent the entire dimension of the adjacency matrix.
