Secureangle: Improving Wireless Security Using Angle-Of-Arrival Information, Jie XIONG, Kyle JAMIESON 2010 Singapore Management University

Secureangle: Improving Wireless Security Using Angle-Of-Arrival Information, Jie Xiong, Kyle Jamieson

Research Collection School Of Information Systems

Wireless networks play an important role in our everyday lives, at the workplace and at home. However, they are also relatively vulnerable: physically located off site, attackers can circumvent wireless security protocols such as WEP, WPA, and even to some extent WPA2, presenting a security risk to the entire network. To address this problem, we propose SecureAngle, a system designed to operate alongside existing wireless security protocols, adding defense in depth. SecureAngle leverages multi-antenna APs to profile the directions at which a client's signal arrives, using this angle-of-arrival (AoA) information to construct signatures that uniquely identify each client. We ...

Refinement Of Biomarker Pentosidine Methodology For Use On Aging Birds, Crissa K. Cooey, Jesse A. Fallon, Michael L. Avery, James T. Anderson, Elizabeth A. Falkenstein, Hillar Klandorf

USDA National Wildlife Research Center - Staff Publications

There is no reliable method for determining age for most species of long-lived birds. Recent success using the skin chemical pentosidine as a biomarker has shown promise as an aging tool for birds. Pentosidine levels have been determined only from the breast tissue of carcasses, and we sought to refine the procedure with respect to biopsy size and location for safe and effective use on living birds. We compared pentosidine concentrations in 4 skin-size samples (4, 6, 8, and 20-mm diameter biopsies) from the breast of black vulture (Coragyps atratus) carcasses. We also compared pentosidine levels from breast and patagial ...

Synthesis And Characterization Of An Europium-Porphyrin Complex, Alejandro Blinder 2010 Governors State University

Synthesis And Characterization Of An Europium-Porphyrin Complex, Alejandro Blinder

All Capstone Projects

Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a promising treatment that has continued to improve over the past thirty years when the first commercially approved photosensitizer (PS) was introduced. Although PDT has many successful applications, the terrifying number of new cancer cases reported each year makes scientists focus their efforts towards the development of new efficient PS for PDT. The biggest obstacle that prohibits PDT from becoming a more widely used therapy is the ineffective photosensitizers (PS) that are available on the market today. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the synthesized metal-porphyrin complex as a possible candidate as a PS ...

Amino acids gets oxidized when they are interacted with oxygen and light. And it is always difficult for the researchers to find and isolate a particular amino acid from a protein, unless they completely know how it behaves when interacted with light. For this we are synthesizing amide form of the amino acid which mimics the structure of a protein, and we induce light and find out the exact behavior of the particular amino acid. Here, the aim is to know the tyrosine interaction with light, so we synthesize amide form of tyrosine which is N-Acetyl tyrosine ethyl amide from ...

Recent Clinical research focused mainly on the therapeutic safety which mainly involves the avoidance of toxicities. To prevent the toxicities, site targeted drugs are improved which exhibit their therapeutic action on the specific target or the diseased target without disturbing the healthy cells. Folic acid, a natural Vitamin (Vit B9) has shown promising results in site specificity mainly in the cancer cells where they are abundantly present.

Folic acid is of great importance because of the promising results of several clinical trials which demonstrate that Folic acid increases the potency and simultaneously reducing the toxicity of the cancer therapies. Various ...


Mining Collaboration Patterns From A Large Developer Network, Didi SURIAN, David LO, Ee Peng LIM 2010 Singapore Management University

Mining Collaboration Patterns From A Large Developer Network, Didi Surian, David Lo, Ee Peng Lim

Research Collection School Of Information Systems

In this study, we extract patterns from a large developer collaborations network extracted from Source Forge. Net at high and low level of details. At the high level of details, we extract various network-level statistics from the network. At the low level of details, we extract topological sub-graph patterns that are frequently seen among collaborating developers. Extracting sub graph patterns from large graphs is a hard NP-complete problem. To address this challenge, we employ a novel combination of graph mining and graph matching by leveraging network-level properties of a developer network. With the approach, we successfully analyze a snapshot of ...


Wireless Sensing Without Sensors: An Experimental Study Of Motion/Intrusion Detection Using Rf Irregularity, Wei Qi LEE, Winston K. G. SEAH, Hwee-Pink TAN, Zexi YAO 2010 Singapore Management University

Wireless Sensing Without Sensors: An Experimental Study Of Motion/Intrusion Detection Using Rf Irregularity, Wei Qi Lee, Winston K. G. Seah, Hwee-Pink Tan, Zexi Yao

Research Collection School Of Information Systems

Motion and intrusion detection are often cited as wireless sensor network (WSN) applications with typical configurations comprising clusters of wireless nodes equipped with motion sensors to detect human motion. Currently, WSN performance is subjected to several constraints, namely radio irregularity and finite on-board computation/energy resources. Radio irregularity in radio frequency (RF) propagation rises to a higher level in the presence of human activity due to the absorption effect of the human body. In this paper, we investigate the feasibility of monitoring RF transmission for the purpose of intrusion detection through experimentation. With empirical data obtained from the Crossbow TelosB ...


Real-Time Monitoring Of Uncertainty Due To Refraction In Multibeam Echo Sounding, Jonathan Beaudoin 2010 University of New Hampshire, Durham

Real-Time Monitoring Of Uncertainty Due To Refraction In Multibeam Echo Sounding, Jonathan Beaudoin

Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping

A software toolkit has been developed to objectively monitor uncertainty due to refraction in multibeam echosounding, specifically mapping systems that employ underway sound speed profiling hardware. The toolkit relies on the use of a raytrace simulator which mimics the sounding geometry of any given echosounder, specifically array type, angular sector, draft, and availability of a surface sound speed probe. The simulator works by objectively comparing a pair of consecutively collected sound speed profiles and reporting sounding uncertainty across the entire potential sounding space. Realtime visualizations of the uncertainty as a function of time and space allow the operator to tune ...


Correction Of Bathymetric Survey Artifacts Resulting From Apparent Wave-Induced Vertical Position Of An Auv, Val E. Schmidt, Nicole A. Raineault, Adam Skarke, Arthur Trembanis, Larry A. Mayer 2010 University of New Hampshire, Durham

Correction Of Bathymetric Survey Artifacts Resulting From Apparent Wave-Induced Vertical Position Of An Auv, Val E. Schmidt, Nicole A. Raineault, Adam Skarke, Arthur Trembanis, Larry A. Mayer

Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping

Recent increases in the capability and reliability of autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) have provided the opportunity to conduct bathymetric seafloor surveys in shallow water (< 50 m). Unfortunately, surveys of this water depth may contain artifacts induced by large amplitude wave motion at the surface. The artifacts occur when an onboard pressure sensor determines the depth of the AUV. Waves overhead induce small pressure fluctuations at depth, which modulate the AUV’s pressure sensor output without causing actual vertical movement of the AUV. Since bathymetric measurements are made with respect to the AUV’s depth, these pressure fluctuations, in turn, modulate the measurement of the seafloor. The result is a periodic across-track, vertical offset of the seafloor profile (similar to a heave artifact sometimes common in surface vessel surveys). In this paper we describe our experience with the “Gavia” model AUV (Hafmynd EHF, Iceland) in a recent bathymetric survey during which wave action overhead induced such an artifact with a peak-to-peak amplitude as large as 1 meter. A method for removing the artifact as well as recommendations for modifications to the sonar, INS and AUV to mitigate the effect in the future are provided.

Physics Scholarship

[1] Recent modeling efforts have yielded varying and conflicting results regarding the possibility that Earth's magnetosphere is able to shield energetic particles of >10 MeV at lunar distances. This population of particles consists of galactic cosmic rays as well as energetic particles that are accelerated by solar flares and coronal mass ejections. The Cosmic Ray Telescope for the Effects of Radiation (CRaTER) onboard the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter is in orbit about the Moon and is thus able to directly test these modeling results. Over the course of a month, CRaTER samples the upstream solar wind as well as various ...


Jahn-Teller Coupling And Fragmentation After Core-Shell Excitation Ini Cf4 Investigated By Partial-Ion-Yield Spectroscopy, Renaud Guillemin, Wayne C. Stolte, Maria Novella Piancastelli, Dennis W. Lindle 2010 CNRS, Laboratoire de Chimie Physique-Matière et Rayonnement

Jahn-Teller Coupling And Fragmentation After Core-Shell Excitation Ini Cf4 Investigated By Partial-Ion-Yield Spectroscopy, Renaud Guillemin, Wayne C. Stolte, Maria Novella Piancastelli, Dennis W. Lindle

Chemistry and Biochemistry Faculty Publications

We investigate fragmentation processes induced by core-level photoexcitation in CF4 at both the carbon and fluorine K edges by means of partial-ion-yield spectroscopy. The molecule CF4 is a textbook example of systems in which Jahn-Teller coupling strongly manifests itself in the photoabsorption spectrum. Spectral features related to Jahn-Teller and quasi-Jahn-Teller splitting are observed, and important differences in the fragmentation pathways are revealed depending on the symmetries of the core-excited states. We interpret these experimental observations on the grounds of symmetry lowering from the Td to the C3v point group as well as preferential orientation with respect ...

Inductive Inference Of Languages From Samplings, Sanjay Jain, Efim Kinber 2010 National University of Singapore

Inductive Inference Of Languages From Samplings, Sanjay Jain, Efim Kinber

School of Computing Faculty Publications

We introduce, discuss, and study a model for inductive inference from samplings, formalizing an idea of learning different “projections” of languages. One set of our results addresses the problem of finding a uniform learner for all samplings of a language from a certain set when learners for particular samplings are available. Another set of results deals with extending learnability from a large natural set of samplings to larger sets. A number of open problems is formulated.
