The members of the Medical Device Research Coalition study the safety, security, and effectiveness of networked medical devices that are either implanted or attached to the body. This Coalition includes researchers who study device security at the design level, as well as those who study the safety and effectiveness of devices they personally use. Such research often requires the researcher to access the underlying source code and outputs from these devices, and device manufacturers are increasingly employing technologies that courts may classify as technological protection measures under § 1201 of the Copyright Act. In order to make sure that this form of critical research continues, the Medical Device Research Coalition proposes the following exemption:

Scribble legalization cryptographic Aspect Based on data access control for steam count

Recently, healthcare applications adopt the advents of cloud technologies. Electronic Health Records (EHR) plays a vital role in healthcare environments. Thus, the proper usage and protection of EHR systems enabled the growth of cloud based healthcare applications which implies the patients-safety of their sensitive information. However, the data owner should be online in order to send the PRE keys to the CSP in a timely fashion, to prevent the revoked user from accessing the future data. The delay of issuing the PRE keys may cause potential security risks in this paper, we have proposed cryptographic Aspect Based access control system for EHR systems which uses time and location based user’s authentication process. A defined set of attributes embedded with time period T to access the data by its intended users. Experimental results have shown the efficacy of our proposed work in terms of decryption key compromised, role expiration and lessened key complexity have been studied.

Implementing NAP & NAC Security Technologies   The Complete Guide to Network Access Control pdf

Implementing NAP & NAC Security Technologies The Complete Guide to Network Access Control pdf

You’ve all heard the old analogies: Do you call a tomato a ‘‘tuh-mey-toh’’ or do you call it a ‘‘tuh-mah-toh’’? Do you pronounce Illinois ‘‘il-uh-noi’’ or ‘‘il-uh-nois.’’ Is a roll with salami, ham, cheese, and so on a submarine sand- wich, a hero, or a hoagie? Likewise, is it NAC? Is it NAP? Is there a difference? What about TNC? And what the heck is Network Access Quarantine Control? There’s no lack of acronyms out there to describe technologies that are pretty darn similar. Adding to the confusion is the addition of these technologies to everyday vocabulary as used in a generic sense. Remember Xerox copy machines? It wasn’t long before office workers were saying, ‘‘Hey, go Xerox me a copy of this report . . . .’’ The brand name Xerox became a verb and part of the everyday vocabulary. It didn’t necessarily represent the brand of copier actually being used to perform the document copying function.

Access control technologies for Big Data management systems: literature review and future trends

Access control technologies for Big Data management systems: literature review and future trends

Filters are used to generate views of the analyzed resources which are authorized for the subject who requires the execution of the MapReduce task. The views are generated in such a way that any unauthorized content included in the analyzed resource is removed or obfus- cated. More precisely, filters specify: i) preconditions to the processing of any key-value pair p extracted from a target resource under analysis, as well as ii) the ratio- nale for deriving from p a new pair p’, which models the authorized content of p. The use of filters had previously been considered in Vigiles (Ulusoy et al. 2014), a fine grained access control framework for Hadoop. In Ulusoy et al. (2014), authorization filters are handled by means of per-user assignment lists, and filters are coded in Java by security administrators. In contrast, in GuardMR filters are assigned to subjects on the basis of the covered roles, and a formal specification approach to the definition of filters is proposed, which allows specifying selection and modification criteria at a very high level of abstraction using the Object Constraint Language (OCL) 4 (Warmer and Kleppe 1998; Clark and Warmer 2002). GuardMR relies on automatic tools 5 to generate Java bytecode from OCL-based filter specifications, as well as to integrate the generated bytecode into the bytecode of the MapReduce task to be executed. GuardMR has been used with MapRe- duce tasks targeting both textual and binary resources (Ulusoy et al. 2015), showing the flexibility of the approach. GuardMR and Vigiles do not require Hadoop source code customization, however, they rely on plat- form specific features, such as the Hadoop APIs and the Hadoop control flow for regulating the execution of a MapReduce task. A reasonably low enforcement overhead has been observed with both Vigiles and GuardMR. Nei- ther Vigiles nor GuardMR provide support for context aware access control policies.

Toward the network of the future: From enabling technologies to 5G concepts

Toward the network of the future: From enabling technologies to 5G concepts

C-RAN is one possible way to efficiently centralize computational resources, by connecting multiple sites to a central data center where all the baseband processing is performed. Radio signals are exchanged over dedicated transmission lines (called fronthaul) between remote radio heads and the data center. With a pure C-RAN approach, only fiber links are today capable of supporting the required data rates, (e.g., about 10 Gb/s for TD-LTE with 20 MHz bandwidth and eight receiver antennas) being this need for a high-capacity fronthaul the main drawback of C-RAN [24]. The trade-off between centralized processing requiring high capacity fronthaul links, and decentralized processing using traditional backhaul to transport the user and control data to/from the radio access points has triggered the design of cloud RAN approaches. This allows flexible and adaptive software deployment, taking advantage of the enormous potential of cloud computing. In a flexible cloud RAN environment, different RAN functions can be optimally and dynamically allocated, and moved between the radio access points and data centers deployed within the network, even at the core.

A REVIEW ON TECHNOLOGIES FOR E-COMMERCE ACCESS

A REVIEW ON TECHNOLOGIES FOR E-COMMERCE ACCESS

iButton has a unique 64-bit address provides a simple, secure way of identifying a person or asset. It becomes your personalized token and acts like a small change purse for one or multiple applications. Unlike paper cash, iButton is electronically authenticated using a complex, non-reversible mathematical algorithm plus 64-bit secret to ensure that the data/ eCash stored in it doesn’t get altered or even the entire device gets duplicated or emulated. iButton can serve as an electronic key to meet all application needs such as eCash, access control, guard tour monitors, maintenance and inspection data management, device and software authorization, and temperature data logging. iButton technology has emerged in India on a very smaller extent but widely used in other countries for different application as mentioned above. The security aspect of iButton is greatly enhanced by the use of java based cryptographic techniques, ISO/IEC 10118-3 standard Secure Hash Algorithm 1 (SHA-1). The integrated 512-bit SHA-1 engine can be activated to compute 160-bit message authentication codes (MACs) based on information stored in the iButton.

NETWORK ACCESS CONTROL

NETWORK ACCESS CONTROL

Computers connected to the Internet are very much part of every day life. People now use their computers in many different ways, such as online banking, online shopping, email, travel planning, news gathering, etc. It has provided users convenience and the ability to search for things on a moment’s notice. However, by being able to easily log in to and access almost any worldwide site on the Internet, this has also exposed them to software called Malware, such as worms, viruses, Trojans, spy ware, data leakage and identity theft. Additionally, it places their networks at risk to which these computers are connected if they become infected. With an increased remote workforce, businesses also face these issues when their workers attempt to connect to the corporate network through Virtual Private Networks (VPN), or through a growing deployment of wireless technologies and mobile computing with devices, such as smart phones and PDAs. All these factors make Network Access Control (NAC) an important tool to have for today’s businesses.

Bulk collection, intrusion and domination

Bulk collection, intrusion and domination

The rest of the discussion is divided into five sections. In the first, technologies for targeted surveillance will be reviewed, along with the risks of unjustified intrusion they carry. I shall address the question why intrusion is normally morally wrong. This will involve me in discussing the value of privacy and the different zones protected by established informal conventions about privacy. Privacy in the relevant sense is associated with access to information rather than control of information. On the basis of the distinction between access and control, I give reasons in the second section for thinking that bulk collection is not as intrusive as better established technologies used for targeted surveillance. Section 3 distinguishes the NSA and bulk collection from the Stasi and its methods of intelligence collection, and rejects the claim that the two are relevantly similar. In section 4, I introduce a concept from republican theory –that of domination—to articulate a sound line of objection against bulk collection: namely that it contributes to “domination” on a modest scale, that is, a potential for infringing some citizens’ negative liberty, if it is not, as it is not, effectively regulated and overseen. I end by suggesting that the main problem with bulk collection is that too much information surrounding it is classified, wrongly impeding the scrutiny of even security-cleared, democratically elected legislators.

Survey of Communication System for DG’s and Microgrid in Electrical Power Grid

Survey of Communication System for DG’s and Microgrid in Electrical Power Grid

Abstract— Different distributed generation (DG) units form a Microgrid in electrical power grid. Microgrid contains two or more distributed generation unit such as wind power, photovoltaic cell, solar panel, fuel cell etc. Each DG unit converts physical quantity (wind, solar, fuel cell etc.) into electrical power. The role of inverter, in DG, is to convert DC Power into 3 phase power and supplied to power grid to cater load demand. For this purpose DG’s are need to work in synchronization. Each DG has to communicate the status of frequency, phase and voltage with other DG’s working in Microgrid to maintain synchronization with the power grid. A communication between DG’s may be wired or wireless. A communications system is the key component of the Microgrid infrastructure. Different communications technologies are supported by wired and wireless communications media. The DG acquires information about synchronization parameters using a wireless or wired network (such as a WiFi, ZigBee, and/or cellular communication network, PLC, Ethernet etc.). The information contains phase voltage, phase current, frequency and phase angle between DG’s output voltage and grid voltage. This paper presents different communication technologies suitable for inverter based DG’s and Microgrid to access and control data from/to each DG as a node. The main objective of this paper is to survey the communication channels and protocols suitable for Microgrid in electrical power grid.

NETWORK ACCESS CONTROL TECHNOLOGIES

NETWORK ACCESS CONTROL TECHNOLOGIES

Cisco was the first to define the technology. In 2003 it launched the NAC program. In fact, Cisco coined the term NAC (for Network Access Control), which is the term most commonly used today. In its initial ap- proach Cisco and its partners provided live client pol- icy information to Cisco’s NAC client, through written Posture Plug-ins (PP). Cisco also defined the term Posture Validation Server (PVS). PVS is a partner policy server that allows administrators to define the health of endpoints – the PVS instructed Cisco network devices as to the level of network access al- lowed based on the health of the endpoint communi- cated by the PP. This program extended to anti-virus, patch management, vulnerability scanners and other security technologies.

GAO INFORMATION SECURITY. Technologies to Secure Federal Systems. Report to Congressional Requesters. United States General Accounting Office

Stateful inspection firewalls keep track of network connections that are used by network applications to reliably transfer data. When an application uses a network connection to create a session with a remote host system, a port is also opened on the originating system. This port receives network traffic from the destination system. For successful connections, packet filter firewalls must permit inbound packets from the destination system. Opening up many ports to incoming traffic creates a risk of intrusion by unauthorized users, who may employ a variety of techniques to abuse the expected conventions of network protocols such as Transmission Control Protocol (TCP). Stateful inspection firewalls solve this problem by creating a directory of outbound network connections, along with each session’s corresponding client port. This “state table” is then used to validate any inbound traffic. The stateful inspection solution is more secure than a packet filter because it tracks client ports individually rather than opening all inbound ports for external access.

Exemption to Prohibition on Circumvention of Copyright Protection Systems for Access Control Technologies

Exemption to Prohibition on Circumvention of Copyright Protection Systems for Access Control Technologies

reporting, teaching, scholarship, or research. Nor would circumvention of software locks to connect to alternative mobile telecommunications networks be likely to have any effect on the market for or value of copyrighted works. The reason that these four factors appears to be neutral is that in this case, the access controls do not appear to actually be deployed in order to protect the interests of the copyright owner or the value or integrity of the copyrighted work; rather, they are used by wireless carriers to limit the ability of subscribers to switch to other carriers, a business decision that has nothing whatsoever to do with the interests protected by copyright. And that, in turn, invokes the additional factor set forth in § 1201(a)(1)(C)(v): “such other factors as the Librarian considers appropriate.” When application of the prohibition on circumvention of access controls would offer no apparent benefit to the author or copyright owner in relation to the work to which access is controlled, but simply offers a benefit to a third party who may use § 1201 to control the use of hardware which, as is increasingly the case, may be operated in part through the use of computer software or firmware, an exemption may well be warranted. Such appears to be the case with respect to the software locks involved in the current proposal.

Access to medical products, vaccines, and medical technologies

Access to medical products, vaccines, and medical technologies

Numerous factors contribute to making health goods available in developng countries, including affordable prices; government commitment through a well-conceived and implemented national medicines policy; adequate, sustainable and equitable public sector financing; generic substitution; transparent and widely disseminated consumer information; efficient distribution; control of taxes, duties and other markups; and careful selection and monitoring (WHO, 2004). The UN Millennium Project (2005) has identified six categories of barriers to access: inadequate national commitment, inadequate human resources, failure of the international community to keep its promises to developing countries, lack of coordination of international aid, obstacles created by the World Trade Organization (WTO) Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property (TRIPS), and the failure of the current incentive structure for research and development (R&D) to address priority health needs of developing countries (pp. 29-31). While several large international foundations (such as the Gates and Clinton Foundations) have successfully negotiated reduced prices for medicines by guaranteeing purchases and continuous demand, such strategies only address a fraction of the access gap. Similarly, donation programs, albeit commendable, fail to address the systemic challenges requiring sustainable commitments and strategies (Holt, Gillam and Ngondi, 2012).

Cloud Data Storage and Sharing in Medical Field using CP-ABE

Cloud Data Storage and Sharing in Medical Field using CP-ABE

This incipient paradigm of information hosting and information access accommodations introduces a great challenge to information access control. Because the cloud server cannot be plenarily trusted by information owners, they can no longer rely on servers to do approach control. Cipher text-Policy Attribute- predicated Encryption (CP-ABE) is regarded as one of the most congruous technologies for information access control in cloud storage systems, because it gives the information owner more direct control on access policies. In CP-ABE scheme, there is an ascendancy that is responsible for assign direction plus key distribution.

Professional Access Control

Professional Access Control

Traditional models of access control do not cope well with the problem of how to define access permissions for a team that is dynamic in nature (as is a treating team) and where the access is to objects (patient records) only in the loosest sense ‘owned’ by those who have a need to access such objects. In these models either the system administrator has to define permitted access in advance (mandatory access control) or the owner of the data can define the permitted accesses (discretionary access control) (Pfleeger 2000). Extensions to Role Based Access Control (RBAC) and Team Based Access Control (TMAC) have provided the most useful solutions to date but still require a system administrator or surrogate to define appropriate access in advance. (Ferraiolo & Kuhn 1992) (Ramaswamy & Sandhu 1998) (NIST 2004) (Thomas 1997) (Georgiadis et al 2001) (Georgiadis 2002) However, work by Thomas & Sandhu (1997) and Alotaiby & Chen (2004) has shown that it is possible to incorporate changes to access privileges as part of normal workflow.

Professional Access Control

Professional Access Control

This thesis focuses on the problem of finding a suitable access control solution which can be incorporated into public hospitals. It deals with the aspect of user authorisation and does not cover the aspect of user authentication. In the State of Tasmania all public hospitals are run by the State Government Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). The solution proposed in this thesis is therefore focussed somewhat on meeting the access control requirements within DHHS controlled hospitals. The DHHS made it clear that a workable solution must guarantee availability of records to clinicians, to ensure they are never denied access to information necessary for clinical decision making. In addition, for the solution to be acceptable it could not introduce any additional work for users. While DHHS patient records are still largely paper-based, the current state of access control in the hospitals in question is that all clinicians have access to all the electronic hospital records of all patients. The solution seeks to provide a system which can easily be implemented and that gives access to users on a need-to-know basis.
