ViSAGE: A Virtual Laboratory for Simulation and Analysis of Social Group Evolution
Jeffrey Baumes, Hung-Ching (Justin) Chen, Matthew Francisco, Mark Goldberg, Malik Magdon-Ismail, William Wallace
Article No.: 8
DOI: 10.1145/1380422.1380423

We present a modeling laboratory, Virtual Laboratory for the Simulation and Analysis of Social Group Evolution (ViSAGE), that views the organization of human communities and the experience of individuals in a community as contingent upon on the...

Interactive access control for autonomic systems: From theory to implementation
Hristo Koshutanski, Fabio Massacci
Article No.: 9
DOI: 10.1145/1380422.1380424

Autonomic communication and computing is a new paradigm for dynamic service integration over a network. An autonomic network crosses organizational and management boundaries and is provided by entities that see each other just as partners. For...

An adaptive automatically tuning intrusion detection system
Zhenwei Yu, Jeffrey J. P. Tsai, Thomas Weigert
Article No.: 10
DOI: 10.1145/1380422.1380425

An intrusion detection system (IDS) is a security layer to detect ongoing intrusive activities in computer systems and networks. Current IDS have two main problems: The first problem is that typically so many alarms are generated as to overwhelm...

A new class of nature-inspired algorithms for self-adaptive peer-to-peer computing
Steven Y. Ko, Indranil Gupta, Yookyung Jo
Article No.: 11
DOI: 10.1145/1380422.1380426

We present, and evaluate benefits of, a design methodology for translating natural phenomena represented as mathematical models, into novel, self-adaptive, peer-to-peer (p2p) distributed computing algorithms (protocols). Concretely, our...
