Venkadesh S, Mr. K. Palnivel


People enjoy the convenience of on-line services, however on-line environments might bring several risks. In the on-line communication, the password has a crucial role to secure user personal details. These passwords are taken to be secure and it should be retain in person. The third person might take a password without knowledge of original user and they might do any dishonest activities on the victim‟s account. The passwords are taken by using anyone of the attack mechanism like Phishing attack, password Stealing Program Attack and etc… The user may use personal details in on-line setting. These personal details should be secured. There are many types of mechanisms are available to secure the password and user‟s information. In this paper we focus on the problem of securing user passwords from attackers. We follow an approach of protecting password using virtual password and proposed a scheme involving change of virtual password functions based on the user behavior.

Adaptation in Genetic Algorithm

Sangeeta kumari, Girdhar Gopal


The behavior of genetic algorithm is determined by exploration and exploitation relationship kept throughout the run of algorithm. The reason for developing adaptive genetic algorithm is to build a relation between exploitation/exploration to avoid the premature convergence and to improve the final results. Widely used approach for adaptation in genetic algorithm is adaptive parameter setting techniques. This paper describes an adaptive mechanism to control the use of control parameters of GA. We believes that the AGA is the first step in realizing a class of self organizing GAs that are capable of adapting themselves in locating the global optima in multimodal landscape.

A Perspective of Concurrency Control in Distributed Database

Ranjana Jhala, Kamaljit I. Lakhtaria and Sanjay Gaur


In the age of information technology data is prime concern because data are base of information. Database management system is requirement for manage the data in efficient way. With the rapidly increasing database size the amount of transactions in the database get increased. In the distributed database it becomes more critical. There is an escalating demand for higher throughputs in transaction processing systems which directly result into higher degrees of transaction concurrency. Concurrency control in Database management systems make sure that transactions which are performed on database concurrently are of without violating the data integrity. Therefore concurrency control is vital factor for correctness in any system where two or more transactions are executed with time overlap, can access the same data. Such circumstances are cause of origin of Deadlock and Livelock kind of situations. To overcome such problems several techniques have been anticipated for managing concurrent execution of transactions in database systems. Here a technique for concurrency control in distributed database management system is explained which will look up system performance by plummeting the probability of deadlock and livelock.

Abin Roy , Anna Varghese,Joel Raju and Shaiju Paul


This project describes the design and implementation of radio streaming on the Raspberry Pi. Internet radio services are usually accessible from anywhere in the world and the quality of these services do not degrade over distance. These features have made Internet radio service popular among radio providers. Audio streaming is a continuous data transferring and receiving. Internet radio involves streaming media, presenting listeners with a continuous stream of audio that typically cannot be paused or replayed, much like traditional broadcast media. There is also a provision for the listener to playback the saved content in the system. The broadcaster can also add audio advertisement in between the live stream. This opens up a new medium for advertisement. The tracks can be sorted according to a genere and viewed accordingly. A speaker is enabled with wifi using raspberry pi.

Network Traffic Balancing Using Token Based Traffic Distribution (TBTD)

K.T.Preethi and P.Karunakaran


Single core processors have high flexibility but lack in performance. In order to compensate the lack of performance multi-core processors that can manage network packet in parallel are used. The processing load and the network traffic must be properly balanced to make the best inter core communication and to capably utilize multi-core architectures. The performance of the Linux Bridge networking device is verified and the traffic distribution is analysed packet wise and based on flow. The packet based and flow based traffic distributions are combined by a proposed method called traffic-distribution method. Two test cases are used for the experimental validation such as worst case and the backbone link. In worst case, with one dominant flow, the performance in traffic throughput is improved by a factor of 2.8 by appealing four processing cores. In backbone link, with a large number of flows that have a similar packet rate, the performance remains same to the existing flow based methods. DPDK Open switch is used in the future technique to reduce the IRQ overhead and the scalability is increased with the help of polling based network traffic reception and transmission. Clustering and hashing techniques are used to increase the fast packet transmission.

Survey on Stream Data Mining: A Technique for Intrusion Detection

Shanmugam. R. and Karunmoorthi .R.


An Intrusion detection System (IDS) is defined as “The problem of identifying individuals who are using a computer system without authorization (i.e., ‘crackers’) and those who have legitimate access to the system but are abusing their privileges. The goal of IDS is to detect malicious traffic. Many IDS has been designed and implemented using various techniques like Data Mining, Fuzzy Logic, and Neural Network etc. In this project, myself investigates the problem of existing normal Data Mining Techniques like association rule mining, classification, clustering which is not efficient enough for the IDS performance. The main drawback of implementing intrusion detection in data mining is that it is not effective while handling huge, heterogenetic and dimensional dataset. In my project, Stream Data Mining and Drift Detection Method which is more suitable for Machine learning technique to model efficient Intrusion Detection Systems is proposed. By implementing Stream Data Mining ensemble with intrusion detection, the major drawbacks are overcome by detecting the types of denial-of-service attack.
