Fietkau J, Runge D, Seifert JP. 2021. Free By Design: On the Feasibility of Free-Riding Attacks Against Zero-rated Services. CANS2021

Conference: 20th International Conference On Cryptology And Network Security (CANS 2021) Authors: Fietkau J, Runge D, Seifert JP. Abstract: With free-riding attacks against zero-rated services, an attacker can avoid expenses by transmitting wrongly labeled zero-rated network traffic. Previous research has shown that free-riding attacks can affect network quality and increase…

Gelenbe E, Nakip M, Marek D, Czachorski T. 2021. Diffusion Analysis Improves Scalability of IoT Networks to Mitigate the Massive Access Problem. MASCOTS 2021.

Conference: MASCOTS 2021 Authors: Gelenbe E, Nakip M, Marek D, Czachorski T. Abstract: A significant challenge of IoT networks is to offer Quality of Service (QoS) and meet deadline requirements when packets from a massive number of IoT devices are forwarded to an IoT gateway. Many IoT devices tend to…

Gelenbe E, Nakip M, Marek D, Czachorski T. 2021. Mitigating the Massive Access Problem in the Internet of Things. EuroCybersec2021.

Conference: EuroCybersec2021 Authors: Gelenbe E, Nakip M, Marek D, Czachorski T. Abstract: The traffic from the large number of IoT devices connected to the IoT is a source of congestion known as the Massive Access Problem (MAP), that results in packet losses, delays and missed deadlines for realtime data. This…
