Keynote 1: Modelling the Propagation of Worms and Rumours in Networks

Wanlei

Professor Wanlei Zhou

Deakin University
Melbourne, Australia

ABSTRACT: Computer worms and their variants have been a persistent security threat in the Internet from the late 1980s, causing large parts of the Internet becoming temporarily inaccessible, huge amount of financial loss and social disruption especially during the past decade. In this talk we first identify worms characteristics through their spreading behaviour, and classify various target discover techniques employed by them. Then we investigate different topologies for modelling the spreading of worms, analyse various worms’ propagation models and emphasize the performance of each model. Finally, we describe our most recent work on worm propagation studies and an extension of the studies on the propagation of both truths and rumours in online social networks. This talk will be based on the following papers:

Keynote 2: Advanced Ad Hoc and Mesh Networks Technologies to Facilitate Specialized Disaster-resilient Networks

Kato

Professor Nei Kato

Tohoku University
Japan

ABSTRACT: The tremendous growth of ad hoc and mesh network technologies has given rise to many sophisticated applications and services. One of the noteworthy uses of advanced ad hoc and mesh networks, in recent time, is the post disaster recovery communication networks, more commonly referred to as “disaster-resilient” networks. In this presentation, we begin with a survey, covering the main aspects of the ad hoc and mesh networks, such as the communication techniques, routing mechanisms, and unique security issues. The popular applications of ad hoc networking in mobile environment, and the issues involving the use of multi-hop Internet access using mesh networks are then highlighted. We present how the use of ad hoc and mesh network technologies may converge or diverge from the basic communication scope to much wider and more specialized contexts, e.g., disaster-resilient networks. From my unique experience as co-PI in the national project in Japan in collaboration with telecom pioneers like NTT and Fujitsu, a disaster-resilient communication network architecture is presented as a case scenario. In this case scenario, we present how the diverse ad hoc and mesh technologies are utilized to deploy movable and deployable resource units(MDRU) to promptly establish post-disaster communication networks. Furthermore, we present a new system “Relay-by-Smartphone” developed by our group to extend the coverage of MDRU and its collaboration with UAV(Unmanned Aerial Vehicle).
