Adversaries are often able to penetrate networks and compromise systems by exploiting vulnerabilities in people and systems. The key to the success of these attacks is information that adversaries collect throughout the phases of the cyber kill chain. We summarize and analyze the methods, tactics, and tools that adversaries use to conduct reconnais...

Fog computing is one of the most important emerging paradigms in recent technological development. It alleviates several limitations of cloud computing by bringing computation, communication, storage, and real-time services near to the end-users. However, with the rapid development of automation in smart cities, the number of task executions by fog...
Conference Paper
The paper presents a power-efficient approach for the IoT ecosystem in a software-defined network (SDN) using machine learning. At present, SDN prevails in networking in-frastructures, intending to lead towards a more feasible and convenient way to manage with greater control. However, the resource constraint IoT ecosystems still lack promising pow...
