An accredit reliability and reputation calculation and management scheme for cloud and wireless sensor networks alliance

Furthermore, we provide data owner with efficiently generated authenticator with encoding process simultaneously. This scheme is proven to be highly efficient, secure and the performance evaluation of this scheme makes this feasible to integrate with An Accredit Reliability and Reputation Calculation and Management Scheme for Cloud and wireless Sensor Networks Alliance. The most important element and key to our work is to enable and assist CSU in choosing authentic and desirable CSP as well as instructing CSP to select genuine SNP that delivers desirable service to the CSU. Hence we focus more on authorization of CSP and SNP rather than authentication of CSU. So, SNP and CSP are applied to certify by internationally recognized Information Security Management System (ISMS) standard by ISO. An SLA (Service Level Agreement) is a negotiated agreement between two or more parties, ion which one is the customer and the others are Cloud Service providers. SLA specifies the level of serviceability, performance, availability, operation and other parameters of the service. Usually, SLA addresses the segments about service: performance measurement, duties, problem management, warranties, definition, and termination. The result of the service received by the CSU is nothing but the subject of SLA. A PLA (Privacy Level Agreement) is also an agreement to describe how CSP maintains its level of privacy protection. The SLA between CSP and CSU provides specific attributes and minimum levels of other performance (e.g., cloud operations time, cloud processing speed) of CSP, while PLA address personal data protection and information privacy issues about cloud service.

Soil Carbon Changes Influenced by Soil Management and Calculation Method

Soil Carbon Changes Influenced by Soil Management and Calculation Method

The equivalent soil mass (ESM) is one of the methods being used to assess SOC and other soil nutrients on a normalized soil mass per unit area basis to account for differences in soil masses caused by soil management [13-16,18]. In the ESM calculation scenario, soil masses associated with different management practices are stan- dardized to a particular soil mass per unit area of a speci- fied layer and the equivalent soil C mass is adjusted to the ESM [13,16,19]. The goal of using the ESM and its associated equivalent C mass calculation is to reduce the SOC error calculated in soil profiles due to changing soil ρ b under different management practices [13,16].

Crop-management Factor Calculation Using Weights of Spatio-temporal Distribution of Rainfall Erosivity

Crop-management Factor Calculation Using Weights of Spatio-temporal Distribution of Rainfall Erosivity

The equations USLE (Wishmeier & Smith 1978) and RUSLE (Renard et al. 1997) are widely used and accepted methods over the world for calculating average annual soil loss. Development of geoinforma- tion systems (GIS), remote sensing (RS) and distance monitoring technologies bring a lot of possibilities for integration with these equations as the USLE/ RUSLE-GIS method. The greatest benefits include very accurate height data reached by LiDAR technol- ogy, on the other hand disproportion with accuracy of soil and vegetation data and discrepancies in rainfall erosivity calculation (Brychta & Janeček 2017) may cause large errors. The inappropriate integration with GIS and RS data may result in many simplifications and distortions. Many authors developed different methods of crop-management factor evaluation (C) and rainfall erosivity factor (R) estimation due to lack of optimal data for calculation according to original methodology. Approaches to C calculation can be divided into 7 groups based on:

Calculation and Management for Mining Loss and Dilution under 3D Visualization Technical Condition

Calculation and Management for Mining Loss and Dilution under 3D Visualization Technical Condition

The mining loss rate and dilution rate are the key indicators for the mining technology and management level of mining enterprises. Aiming at the practical problems such as the large workload but inaccurate data of the traditional loss and dilution calculation method, this thesis introduces the operating principle and process of calculating the loss rate and dilution rate at the mining fields by adopting geological models. As an example, authors establishes 3D models of ore- body units in the exhausted area and mining fields in Yangshu Gold Mine in Liaoning Province, and conduct Boolean calculation among the models to obtain the calculation parameters of loss and dilution, and thereby calculate out the dilution rate and loss rate of the mining fields more quickly and accurately.

Paradoxes of Portfolio Performance Calculation for Wealth Management: Avoiding Reporting Pitfalls

Paradoxes of Portfolio Performance Calculation for Wealth Management: Avoiding Reporting Pitfalls

Portfolio performance calculation for wealth management can be very com- plicated for the laymen and consequently for clients of banks. In this paper, we want to demystify some important issues related to portfolio performance calcu- lation with the aim that clients will be able to in the future better understand what is contained in the financial reporting they received from their bank. In the following brief literature review, we would like to provide several references that pursue the same goal: making financial reporting accessible to everybody. We believe this is the first important measure of risk management. In general, the books or articles suggested are complex since they integrate high-level mathe- matics. Nevertheless, there are of excellent quality. The first ones we mention are related to general performance calculation (Christopherson et al., 2009; Tyson, 1999; Grinold & Kahn, 2000). Then there are more specific calculations like the Dietz-weighted performance (Bacon, 2008; Feibel, 2003; Le Sourd, 2007). For references about consolidated portfolio performance we can suggest (Brealey et al., 1995; Reilly & Brown, 1997). Performance attribution represents a topic on its own in terms of portfolio performance and many texts exist (see Brinson et al., 1986, 1991). Finally, all the literature on bonds and interest rate calculations are usually very specialized on this theme (Homer & Leibowitz, 1972; Smith, 2011).

Trust Management in Grid Trust Assessment and Trust Degree Calculation of a Resource—A Novel Approach

Trust Management in Grid Trust Assessment and Trust Degree Calculation of a Resource—A Novel Approach

This section discusses about the related work. Grid computing research has produced security technologies based not on direct inter-organizations trust relationships, but rather on the use of VO as a bridge among the en- tities participating in a particular community or function [2]. The secure grid environment must employ mecha- nisms to secure authentication, authorization, data encryption, resource protection and secure communication. Grid security itself presents several unique security challenges, including managing user identities [3] across lo- cal and global networks, managing the diversity of local resources/user security systems trust relationships be- tween entities, end-user key and credential management and providing security to resources against malicious acts of grid users [4]. Designing a secure grid implies taking into account the needs of grid users to secure re- mote resources that protect the integrity and confidentiality of data and also the needs of resource owners to en- sure that only authorized, trustworthy individuals are using their systems [5]. Cody et al. have separated the se- curity solutions into system based and behavior based solutions. For example, a grid developer/administrator looking to implement a specific technology as his grid system might turn immediately to the system-based solu- tions, while a researcher studying behavioral aspects of security of the classification system can use behavioral solutions [6]. Trust management will fall under the category of behavioral solutions. Trust differs from authen- tication. Authentication seeks to expose the identity of someone attempting to gain access to the grid. The

Calculation of Economic Rotation Period for Even Aged Stand in Croatia

Calculation of Economic Rotation Period for Even Aged Stand in Croatia

Background and purpose: Even-aged forests prevail in Croatia’s forestry. Rotation period is based mostly on natural parameters. In practice, rotation period is given by Croatian Rulebook of forest management. Cutting age is determined based on inventory data and many other stand characteristics. Rotation period is a planned time and it always has to be unique for particular tree species, and cutting age is the age of a stand at the mo- ment of the final cut. The aim of the paper is to compare rotation period based on economic parameters and ro- tation period determined by using forest inventory data. Material and methods: Owing to absence of long term stand calculation data, research object was taken from Forest Management Handbook (1995). Mean annual in- crement (MAI) and current annual increment (CAI) pro- vided fundamental data for calculations. The research was conducted at one hectare Common Beech (Fagus sylvatica L.) stand. Assortment structure and value of timber was estimated by the present cutting value meth- od calculated by using Croatian forests Ltd. Price list for the year 2008. Labor costs in forest exploitation were also taken into account.

They used the IDEF0 (Integrated Definition Function Modeling) method in the work, accepted as the state standard in the USA and as the recommendations of RF Gosstandart Р 50.1.028-2001. CASE (Computer-Aided Software/System Engineering) means ERwin Process Modeler r7.3 was selected as the tool for analysis, organization, and reorganization of business processes. During the evaluation of the effectiveness of the clinical trial management system, the authors used the net present value (NPV) calculation method.The article proposed the methodological principles of management optimization, which included the construction of two models of business processes in the clinical studies of a pharmaceutical company before and after modernization ("AS-IS" and "AS-WILL"). The structure of the AS-WILL model has a new functional unit "To support clinical research", which can allow organizing the company activities more efficiently through the introduction of highly specialized positions - a logistics expert and an expert in regulatory procedures. For the economic evaluation of modernization, negative cash flows were taken into account and distributed throughout the quarters during the clinical study, a discount rate was determined depending on the projected risks and NPV value was calculated. The authors found that the business process model including the "Clinical Research Support" unit, can increase net present value.

Testing the feasibility and effects of a self management support intervention for patients with cancer and their family caregivers to reduce pain and related symptoms (ANtiPain): Study protocol of a pilot study

Testing the feasibility and effects of a self management support intervention for patients with cancer and their family caregivers to reduce pain and related symptoms (ANtiPain): Study protocol of a pilot study

Despite effective treatment options, more than 40% of cancer patients receive inadequate pain manage- ment. Our previous pilot study resulted in substantial adaptations of a cancer pain self-management inter- vention, the German PRO-Self © Plus Pain Control Program originally developed in the United States. This program will be implemented into clinical prac- tice at the Medical Center-University of Freiburg. The purpose of this multiple methods pilot study is to test the implementation regarding feasibility and ef- fects in clinical practice. In a randomized, wait-list controlled pilot study, adult oncology in-patients of a palliative care consultation service with pain >3/10 will be recruited. The intervention will be performed by a specialized advanced practice nurse with an in- hospital visit and, after discharge, via phone calls and visits. The follow-up will be personalized according to a clinical algorithm that factors in pain intensity, sa- tisfaction with pain management, and patient adhe- rence. The intervention includes structured and tai- lored components and is based on three key strategies: information, skill building and nurse coaching. The specific aims of this study are threefold: 1) to test the feasibility of the study and intervention procedures; 2) to establish effect sizes of main outcome variables (e.g. decrease pain intensity, reduce the number of pa- tients with pain as main symptom) for subsequent power calculation; 3) to explore participants’ expe- riences with pain self-management support and their view of burden and benefit from study participation

Identifying Causes of Construction Waste – Case of Central Region of Peninsula Malaysia

Thus, as a developing country, Malaysia also has fallen into construction waste problems in line with the rapid development of construction sector. In tandem, with increasing demand of infrastructure projects, residential Abstract: Construction waste becomes a global issue facing by practitioners and researchers around the world. Waste can affects success of construction project significantly. More specifically, it has major impact on construction cost, construction time, productivity and sustainability aspects. This paper aims to identify various factors causing construction waste in Malaysia. Study was carried out through structured questionnaire focusing three major parties (i.e. clients, consultants and contractors) involved in construction project. Data was analyzed with Statistical Software Package SPSS. Reliability of data was found as 0.917 which showed that data collected was highly reliable. The calculation of Mean Rank of the construction waste causes found that the 5 key causes are Poor site management and supervision, Lack of experience, inadequate planning and scheduling, Mistakes and errors in design and finally Mistakes during construction. Spearman correlation analysis showed that Mistakes during construction was highly correlated with Rework (with 0.829 correlation value) and Slow information flow between parties (with a value of 0.60) and vice versa. Through identifying the causes and its correlation of the construction waste it gives better understanding to the construction community for future construction projects which benefit not only in term of economy but also the environment.

An Authenticated Trust and Reputation Calculation

An Authenticated Trust and Reputation Calculation

Induced by incorporating the powerful data storage and data processing abilities of cloud computing (CC) as well as ubiquitous data gathering capability of wireless sensor networks (WSNs), CC-WSN integration received a lot of attention from both academia and industry. However, authentication as well as trust and reputation calculation and management of cloud service providers (CSPs) and sensor network providers (SNPs) are two very critical and barely explored issues for this new paradigm. To fill the gap, this paper proposes a novel authenticated trust and reputation calculation and management (ATRCM) system for CC-WSN integration. Considering the authenticity of CSP and SNP, the attribute requirement of cloud service user (CSU) and CSP, the cost, trust, and reputation of the service of CSP and SNP, the proposed ATRCM system achieves the following three functions: 1) authenticating CSP and SNP to avoid malicious impersonation attacks; 2) calculating and managing trust and reputation regarding the service of CSP and SNP; and 3) helping CSU choose desirable CSP and assisting CSP in selecting appropriate SNP. Detailed analysis and design as well as further functionality evaluation results are presented to demonstrate the effectiveness of ATRCM, followed with system security analysis.

Current State and Issues of Logistics Cost Accounting and Management in Malaysia

However, the data is not sufficient for the purpose of logistics cost calculation since transport and storage data published by both DOS and MOF is based on total gross income of primary service companies (logistics provider). This means that the transport and storage data from in-house logistics activities are excluded from the published figures, whereas it accounted for a large percentage of the total logistics costs. Furthermore, the „transport‟ term used in the report published by DOS and MOF include public transport, whereas public transportation does not being a part of logistics system.
