Abstract: The interconnection network is a private network that connects all operators of the world. It enables calls, data and many other services across network and country borders. It connects billions of users and also now an increasing amount of Internet of Things devices. Recently, it has been shown that this network can be severely hacked. We will describe the active protection standardizing and what are the threats that we all face.

Abstract: Some applications introduced in each 5G mobile communication project (5G-P) assume special use cases such as when many people simultaneously use their mobile phone in a restricted area like a stadium or when using traffic safety systems are in common. And, some of them such as mobile healthcare and the Internet of things (IOT) have already been presented by many people. However, the reasons those applications will be widely used are uncertain.And then, most authors of articles related to future mobile communication made no mention of business schemes such as who deploys network infrastructure or who provides service content.

However, histories of existing mobile communication markets may show applications that are different from the ones written in the above articles and new business schemes that are different from existing ones.

In this paper, I introduce results of analysing histories of existing mobile communication markets show that communication applications are always dominant and they have evolved based on users’ desire for communication. The other hand, some SNSs who are recent communication application having privacy security problems have left from the mobile communication market. And then, results of analysing the business models of the network carriers show that deregulation of mobile communication carrier operators has expanded the mobile communication market. On the other hand, I point out that excessive deregulation can cause problems, mainly security problems, for customers.

Abstract: Nowadays, Internet is mostly used to access content and users are also interested in content, instead of location. Information-Centric Networking (ICN) has drawn substantial consideration over past few years because its appearance introduced a new potential Internet architecture (deploying extensive cache structure to distribute and deliver information). Though ICN has undoubtedly become a promising Future Internet architecture to solve current host-centric Internet problems, conventional ICN design still has its own drawbacks. These include caching, routing, etc., particularly mobility issue and energy-efficiency problem due to additional energy consumption for Content Routers’ caching capability. In order to address the energy flaw and enhance the mobility performance of ICNArchitecture, in this article, we have designed, evaluated and proposed a wireless Information Centric Networking (ICN) based access model within the context of Intelligent Transport System (ITS) for ICN standardization procedure. We take into consideration the fact that number of mobile devices increases rapidly day by day as well as the public transportation (e.g. train, bus, etc) becomes more popular nowadays. Besides, mobile users may ask for different content interests via Internet during the period of time when they are on public transport vehicle. We then propose a wireless communication topology in ICN for the ITS by utilizing the smart scheduling algorithm with proactive-caching based strategy to deal with possible and practical situations of commuters (mobile content users). In our scheme, the dedicated content provider proactively sends appropriate segments of requested content (based on chunk-level structure of content) to expected proximity Aggregation content nodes located at neighbor stations (future attachment points) on the moving path of public transportation vehicle. This working scheme substantially enhances the mobile user’s quality of experience and network performance in ICN. Moreover, the proposed ICN based system adapts the network nodes to their optimized network utilization values according to content popularity by conducting cross-layer optimization. This mechanism provides mobile users more reliable and effective Green Information and Communication Systems (ICS) when they travel with public transportation. Therefore, the proposal integrates Green networking into ICN by combining the benefits of innovated rate-adaptivity and proactive-caching based schemes for achieving highly scalable, reliable and energy-efficient network performance in future transportation Information-centric communication system with data-awareness. In addition, we identify that there are currently various ICN-based models and emphasize the need of an official ICN international standard for wireless communication in general and transportation system in particular. Following, by evaluating the proposal, we show that the proposed cross-layer wireless content access model in ICN for ITS is a promising and feasible contribution for the standardization process of ICN.

Abstract: The radar system is extremely important. Each government must ensure the safety of passengers and the efficiency of the system. This is why it has to be considered by suitable and high-performance professionals. In this paper, we have focused on the analysis of a protocol used to carry the information of the different flight parameters of an aircraft from the radar sensor to the operation center. This protocol has not developed any security mechanism which, itself, constitutes a major vulnerability. Every country in the world is going down this road, relying just on the security provided by other layer connections that could mean a step forward but definitely still not enough. Here we describe different parts of the protocol and the mitigation politics suggested to improve the security level for such an important system.

Keywords: Air traffic control, Radar, Transport protocol, Vulnerability, Mitigation.
