Diversification is a favorable word for anyone in finance management. And as data becomes more valuable, the same can be said for the cloud—at least according to researchers in Beijing whose new multi-cloud storage framework could improve storage reliability and reduce spending on cloud services by 20 percent. The scheme...

As the amount of data being generated and transmitted over to the cloud increases, so too do research proposals to combat security issues with advanced cryptography. Often these proposals involve complex policy algorithms and new infrastructures, which work in theory, but would require high overhead in reality. Dr. Mazhar Ali,...

University of South Florida researchers recently set out to find a way to give consumers more bandwidth. What they stumbled upon, however, may very well become a valuable hardware network security tool. An article in IEEE Journal on Emerging and Selected Topics in Circuits and Systems details how the team...

Millions of people share sensitive information over the digital cloud, yet with a new data-breach scandal in the media every week, few trust its security. One team of university researchers has taken the latest in encryption methodology and enhanced it – protecting users against even the server authorities. The Illinois...

Advanced sensors are viewed as important for improving operations in critical facilities such as power plants – but can they ultimately undermine cyber defenses? New research recently published in IEEE Transactions on Power Systems prepares for not if, but when that day will come. In the wake of large government ...
