Ventzislav Nikov, Svetla Nikova, Bart Preneel
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper we extend the linear algebra approach from Nikov et al. in order to build robust unconditionally secure general metering schemes.  ...  In order to decide on advertisement fees for web servers, Naor and Pinkas introduced (threshold) metering schemes secure against coalitions of corrupt servers and clients.  ...  In this paper we have revisited the robust threshold metering schemes from [12, 13] ; we have proposed two solutions to build robust general metering schemes based on the linear algebra approach.  ...

An Auditable Metering Scheme for Web Advertisement Applications [chapter]

Liqun Chen, Wenbo Mao
2001 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This mechanism has the following property: knowing a secret, one can validate a piece of metering evidence in constant units of time while without the secret the job of generating a valid piece of evidence  ...  We will address the use of this mechanism in building an auditable metering scheme for finding the popularity of web sites.  ...  In Eurocrypt'98, Naor and Pinkas proposed a secure but inefficient metering scheme [6] . In that paper, they studied methods for performing secure web metering using robust secret sharing schemes.  ...

Location-Based Optimized Service Selection for Data Management with Cloud Computing in Smart Grids

C., Padmanaban, Eklas, Holm-Nielsen, Hemalatha
2019 Energies  
Instant electric meters are equipped with remote gadgets which communicate with a central cloud administration to produce electric bills for the client.  ...  A hardwired electric meter transmits the electric readings, which in turn access the particular service to make an entry for the particular connection on the cloud.  ...  Finally, they describe the inadequacy of the conventional network robustness metrics to appropriately evaluate the DCN robustness and propose new procedures to quantify DCN robustness.  ...
