            In the past several years, there has been an increasing trend in the use of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) as well as in the integration of both systems due to their complementary nature, flexible combination, and the demand for ubiquito...us computing. As always, adequate security remains one of the open areas of concern before wide deployment of RFID and WSNs can be achieved. Security in RFID and Sensor Networks is the first book to offer a comprehensive discussion on the security challenges and solutions in RFID, WSNs, and integrated RFID and WSNs, providing an essential reference for those who regularly interface with these versatile technologies. Exposes Security Risks The book begins with a discussion of current security issues that threaten the effective use of RFID technology. The contributors examine multi-tag systems, relay attacks, authentication protocols, lightweight cryptography, and host of other topics related to RFID safety. The book then shifts the focus to WSNs, beginning with a background in sensor network security before moving on to survey intrusion detection, malicious node detection, jamming, and other issues of concern to WSNs and their myriad of applications. Offers Viable Solutions In each chapter, the contributors propose effective solutions to the plethora of security challenges that confront users, offering practical examples to aid in intuitive understanding. The last part of the book reviews the security problems inherent in integrated RFID & WSNs. The book ends with a glimpse of the future possibilities in these burgeoning technologies and provides recommendations for the proactive design of secure wireless embedded systems.

            With recent advances in mobile communication technologies, more and more people are accessing cloud computing systems using mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets. Unlike traditional mobile computing systems with limited capabilities, mobile cloud computing uses the powe...rful computing and storage resources available in the cloud to provide cutting-edge multimedia and information services. This book discusses the major research advances in mobile cloud computing systems. Contributed chapters from leading experts in this field cover different aspects of modeling, analysis, design, optimization, and architecture of mobile cloud computing systems. Advances in Mobile Cloud Computing Systems begins by discussing the background, features, and available service models of mobile cloud computing. It goes on to describe a mobile cloud computing system with several third party cloud mobile media (CMM) services that offers its services to a telecom operator. In this scenario, the telecom operator acts as broker that can mix and interchange the resources offered by the different CMM service providers. Subsequent contributed chapters discuss such key research areas as Energy-efficient task execution that reduces the energy consumption in both mobile devices and the cloud Design and architecture of a Proximity Cloud that delivers low-latency, bandwidth-efficient end-user services with a global footprint Virtual mobile networks in clouds that enable resource sharing between multiple mobile network operators Software piracy control framework in mobile cloud computing systems designed to prevent mobile application piracy Dynamic configuration of cloud radio access networks (C-RANs) to improve end-to-end TCP throughput performance in next generation wireless networks The book includes many supporting illustrations and tables along with

            Security in Wireless Communication Networks

            Wireless security is a very important topic and attracting more and more attention from industry, research, and academia. There is a need for a comprehensive book to investigate and to summarize the recent advances in wireless communication network security. This book will serve ...the purpose to thoroughly investigate security issues in emerging wireless access communication networks. This book addresses the security for wireless communication networks. Unlike wired communication networks that have some degree of physical security, physical security in wireless communication networks is impossible to achieve on wireless links (because of the broadcast nature) and therefore security attacks on information flow are the most widespread. Modification of information is possible because of the nature of the channel and the mobility of nodes. The radio channel is harsh and subject to interference, fading, multipath, and high error rates. As a result, packet losses are common even without security threats. An opponent can make use of these natural impairments to modify information and also render the information unavailable. This book will address all these issues. Special attention will be paid to wireless specific issues, e.g., trade-offs between security and power consumption, adaptively changing security protocols in response to the radio channel, etc. The book can be used as a supporting textbook for students on Wireless Security courses, offering the fundamentals of tele-communication and mathematics and cryptographic techniques. This allows the reader to select one specific wireless network of interest after going through the basics of mathematics and cryptographic techniques.

            After 4G, perhaps by 2020, mobile computing and wireless systems will enter the Fifth Generation (5G), which promises evolutionary or at least revolutionary services. What those advanced services will look, sound, and feel like is the topic of this book-speculative, futuristic, a...nd compelling ideas under consideration now may become the norm sooner than we think. As a guide for advanced developers and communication network scientists, 4G and Beyond describes the latest developments in communication-and what's next!

            The transformational technologies of the Internet-Web compound continue to exert a vast and readily apparent influence on the way we live and work. In recent times, internet penetration is now very high in most parts of the world, impacting the context and content of the workplac...e and the boundary between work and private life is even more porous. Not only has the reach increased, but the technologies to access the Internet-Web have further evolved towards increasing portability. The hardware evolution from desktops to laptops to mobile technologies (phones, tablets, watches, eyeglasses) marches forward. The increasing mobility and 24/7 accessibility offers the opportune time to revisit the transformations occurring. Today the Internet consists of billions of digital devices, people, services and other physical objects with the potential to seamlessly connect, interact and exchange information about themselves and their environment. Organizations now use these digital devices and physical objects to produce and consume Internet-based services. This new Internet ecosystem is commonly referred to as the Internet of People, Things and Services (IoPTS). In this follow-up to their 2006 volume, Simmers & Anandarajan examine how The Internet of People, Things and Services (IoPTS) transforms our workplaces. Information and communications technology (ICT) expansion from desktops to laptops to ubiquitous smart objects that sense and communicate directly over the internet - the IoPTS - offers us the opportune time to revisit how the Internet transforms our workplaces.
