Conference Paper
Since the use of Cloud technologies has spread exponentially in the world, the use of Network intrusion detection system has become a field of vital importance in Cyber Security: with the endless growth of network traffic and the spread of new methods of attack, this type of technology has become a must that cloud environments cannot afford to igno...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Distributed denial of service (DDoS) cyber-attack poses a severe threat to the industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) operation due to the security vulnerabilities resulted from increased connectivity and openness, and the large number of deployed low computation power devices. The aim of this paper is to provide a solution to the application-level D...
Conference Paper
Blockchain technologies use key-pairs to sign and verify transactions. Users in a Blockchain system are anonymous and can create multiple wallets, but this can lead to problems such as the sybil attack, a kind of network attack in which a person tries to impersonate multiple identities to take over the network. This paper tries to model a sybil res...
Conference Paper
Blockchain technologies have been spreading since their first financial implementation in 2008. Lots of new platforms were born in the last decade, with the aim of creating new tools to produce wealth in the digital world. Bitcoin miners, for example, can profit by solving the Proof-of-Work consensus protocol challenge that is very expensive in ter...
Article
Software systems have evolved from being 'stand-alone systems' to 'systems of systems' to meet the challenging needs of societies. Contemporary software systems such as socio-technical systems are composed of distributed and heterogeneous agents, the em- bedded environment, and software components. Addressing the disruptions caused by run-time chan...
Article
Full-text available
In software development, non-functional requirements (NFRs) play a crucial role in decision-making procedures for architectural solutions. A strong relation exists between NFRs and design patterns, a powerful method to support the architectural design of software systems, but due to their complexity and abstraction, NFRs are rarely taken into accou...
Conference Paper
The Agile Manifesto emphasizes value on individuals and interactions over processes and tools, explicitly encouraging face-to-face communication as the most effective way of conveying information and collaboration between Agile teams. Effective collaboration enables teams to develop workable solutions to complex problems. However, in reality, this...
Conference Paper
Towards the interest of (Collaborative Networked) Organizations in the adoption of emerging technologies to support communication, collaboration and monitoring needs of their Distributed Agile and Adaptive Development Environment (DADE), a tool based on the emerging Liquid Multi-Device Software paradigm is presented.
Conference Paper
Software Architecture design is a relevant issue in the software development. It is used for communication among the system's stakeholders, and facilitates their understanding about design decisions and design rationale. In this field, architectural knowledge comprises more than design decisions and capture their relationships with requirements and...
Conference Paper
Technological innovation is driving profound changes in all productive fields. Consequently it is contributing to a new definition of the organizations and processes, which increasingly require new skills and responsibilities profiles. This path has also involved the health field where technologies have taken a leading role, it's becoming an integr...
Article
Fog computing paradigm is emerging after a decade's dominance of cloud-based system design and architecture. Now, instead of centralising the computation and coordination to remote services, these are deployed and distributed to all over physical surroundings and network nodes, including cloud services, smart gateways, and network edge devices. At...
Article
Full-text available
In most dangerous events, involving many people in large buildings, rescue workers need to intervene in a timely and targeted manner in order to help most number of people and secure the environments without wasting resources. This work presents an Internet of Things(IoT)-based framework, aiming at monitoring environmental parameters in order to al...
Chapter
Full-text available
Information, objects and people are the core innovation actors of human society progress. Their inner relations can be rebounded by the Internet, the Internet of Things (IoT) and social network, respectively. The integration of social networking concepts into the IoT solutions has led to the so called Social Internet of Things (SIoT) paradigm, acco...
Article
The main aim of data mining techniques and tools is that of identify and extract, from a set of (big) data, implicit patterns which can describe static or dynamic phenomena. Among these latter business processes are gaining more and more attention due to their crucial role in modern organizations and enterprises. Being able to identify and model pr...
Conference Paper
Modern cities produce larger amounts of waste causing profound negative impacts on our natural environment. For this reason, processes related to waste collection, transportation, transformation and final disposal have increased their importance and major adequacy is desirable. Several Waste Management (WM) problems have to be solved in order to ob...
Conference Paper
When hazardous events occurs in buildings or in large environments with different access points and with a large number of users, rescue workers (firefighters, first aid workers, civil protection teams, etc.) need to intervene in a timely manner, where there is a certainty that there are users to help. Typically such events require avoiding waste o...
Article
We present an approach to complex adaptive mobile applications modeling and implementation, able to dynamically change according to changed behavioral properties, state and/or context variables and user’s preference. To this aim, we design a metamodel made up of an Action Repository to store triples composed by logical propositions to define criter...
Conference Paper
Modern agricultural management relies strongly on many different sensing methodologies to provide accurate information on crop, climate, and environmental conditions. Strong challenges in Decision Support Systems still regard the way a smart IoT-based architecture is designed in order to make it robust with respect to the contextual changes it cont...
Conference Paper
We daily experience the interaction with physical objects which are becoming smarter and smarter with the ability to communicate with each other as well as with different information systems. While, on the one hand, we are assisting to the rise of a pervasive Internet of Things (IoT) or an Internet of Everything (IoE), on the other hand we face the...
Conference Paper
We present an approach to reasoning on complex adaptive software architectures able to dynamically design and change features of the model according to changed behavioral properties or context variables and parameters. The approach consists of a metamodel composed by a Knowledge Graph(KG) and case-based reasoning to find a path connecting state, co...
Conference Paper
Since 2005 when Anton Jansen and Jan Bosch [3] gave a modern definition of Software Architecture as a composition of a set of explicit design decisions, a new perspective concerning software architectures design decisions, quality and goals evaluations have been dominating the scientific literature in this field. Designing the software architecture...
