Shielding applications from an untrusted cloud with Haven
Baumann A., Peinado M., Hunt G. OSDI 2014 (Proceedings of the 11th USENIX Conference on Operating Systems Design and Implementation, Broomfield, CO, Oct 6-8, 2014) 267-283, 2014. Type: Proceedings
Cloud computing is a recent model for provisioning commodity hardware with a preinstalled software environment to run a custom software executable, where the provider of the commodity environment has enormous latitude for its provisioning. The ter...

A survey of context data distribution for mobile ubiquitous systems
Bellavista P., Corradi A., Fanelli M., Foschini L. ACM Computing Surveys 44(4): 1-45, 2012. Type: Article
Effective context awareness is pertinent across networks today. The fact that a standardized solution has not yet been established is testament to the ongoing evolution and volatility of networks and the technologies involved....

Practical and low-overhead masking of failures of TCP-based servers
Zagorodnov D., Marzullo K., Alvisi L., Bressoud T. ACM Transactions on Computer Systems 27(2): 1-39, 2009. Type: Article
An interesting approach to maintaining transmission control protocol (TCP) connections when a server crashes is described in this paper. TCP is usually implemented in the operating system, and the protocol provides reliable communications between ...

Rethinking FTP: aggressive block reordering for large file transfers
Anastasiadis S., Wickremesinghe R., Chase J. ACM Transactions on Storage 4(4): 1-27, 2009. Type: Article
In the context of whole-file transfers, Anastasiadis et al. propose block reordering heuristics to maximize throughput by reducing disk traffic. First, already-cached blocks are transferred to all clients concurrently requesting th...

A channel-based fair scheduling scheme for downlink data transmission in TD-CDMA networks
Zhao Y., Anpalagan A. Wireless Personal Communications: An International Journal 46(4): 469-491, 2008. Type: Article
The paper is a study of scheduling schemes for providing high-speed data services in time division-code division multiple access (TD-CDMA) systems, especially mobile wireless networks. In particular, channel-based only (CBO), random scheduling (RS...

Twelve steps to recovery: my co-dependent relationship with Tivoli
Griffiths K., Kramolis T. User services (Proceedings of the 35th Annual ACM SIGUCCS Conference on User Services, Orlando, Florida, Oct 7-10, 2007) 135-138, 2007. Type: Proceedings
Over the past decade, the pervasiveness of the Internet has resulted in an astounding growth of digital content. This growth is not about to slow down anytime soon. Thus, back-up and recovery of this digital content is becoming increasingly import...

Understanding Linux network internals
Benvenuti C., O’Reilly Media, Inc., Sebastopol, CA, 2005. 1062 pp. Type: Book (9780596002558)
With network connectivity becoming almost ubiquitous, we take it for granted that a device can be plugged into a network and work seamlessly. Behind the scenes, however, the networking stack of the device is doing a hard and tedious job: configu...

Virtual square (
) in computer science education
Davoli R., Goldweber M. Innovation and technology in computer science education (Proceedings of the 10th Annual SIGCSE Conference on Innovation and Technology in Computer Science Education, Capacrica, Portugal, Jun 27-29, 2005) 301-305, 2005. Type: Proceedings
The space formed by networked computers is often referred to as being virtual. Students of computer science need to learn about computers and networks in a hands-on way; when teaching computer security in particular, a sandbox of networked systems...
