Recent years have witnessed the proliferation of the deployment of virtualization techniques. Virtualization is designed to be transparent, that is, unprivileged users should not be able to detect whether a system is virtualized. Such detection can result in serious security threats such as evading virtual machine (VM)-based malware dynamic analysis and exploiting vulnerabilities for cross-VM attacks.

The recent success of Deep Convolutional Neural Network (DCNN) for various computer vision tasks such as image recognition has already demonstrated its robust feature representation ability. However, the limitation of training database on small scale vein recognition tasks restricts its performance because the recognition result of DCNN depends heavily on the number of trainsets.

Modern System-on-Chip (SoC) designs integrate a number of third party IPs (3PIPs) that coordinate and communicate through a Network-on-Chip (NoC) fabric to realize system functionality. An important class of SoC security attack involves a rogue IP tampering with the inter-IP communication.

Android inter-app communication (IAC) allows apps to request functionalities from other apps, which has been extensively used to provide a better user experience. However, IAC has also become an enticing target by attackers to launch malicious activities.

In this paper, we investigate beamforming design for cooperative secure transmission in cognitive two-way relay networks, where the cognitive transmitter (CT) with multiple antennas helps to forward the signals of two primary transmitters (PTs) and tries to protect the PTs from wiretapping by a single-antenna eavesdropper. 

We consider a decentralized detection network whose aim is to infer a public hypothesis of interest. However, the raw sensor observations also allow the fusion center to infer private hypotheses that we wish to protect. We consider the case where there are an uncountable number of private hypotheses belonging to an uncertainty set, and develop local privacy mappings at every sensor so that the sanitized sensor information minimizes the Bayes error of detecting the public hypothesis at the fusion center while achieving information privacy for all private hypotheses. 

In this paper, an agile smart attacker model in spectrum sensing of cognitive radio network (CRN) is introduced. This smart attacker does not make the channel busy all the time, instead it senses spectrum and when a primary user leaves, it occupies the spectrum by mimicking the signal characteristics of the primary users.

Contactless fingerprint recognition is highly promising and an essential component in the automatic fingerprint identification system. However, due to the inherent characteristic of perspective distortions of contactless fingerprints, achieving a highly accurate contactless fingerprint recognition system is very challenging.

A problem deeply investigated by multimedia forensics researchers is that of detecting which device has been used to capture a video. This enables us to trace down the owner of a video sequence, which proves extremely helpful to solve copyright infringement cases as well as to fight distribution of illicit material (e.g., child exploitation clips and terroristic threats).

Compressed sensing (CS) has recently emerged as an effective and efficient way to encrypt data. Under certain conditions, it has been shown to provide some secrecy notions. In theory, it could be considered to be a perfect match for constrained devices needing to acquire and protect the data with computationally cheap operations.
