Adversarial Fence Patrolling: Non-Uniform Policies for Asymmetric Environments

Yaniv Oshrat, Noa Agmon, Sarit Kraus
We present a patrol strategy with a non-uniform policy along different points of the fence, based on the location and other properties of the point.  ...  In this work we examine the Fence Patrol problem, in which the robots must travel back and forth along an open polyline and the adversary is aware of the robots' patrol strategy.  ...  Advantage of the Non-Uniform P Policy: Theoretical Study As shown in Fig. 4 , the non-uniform P policy yields better results (i.e. higher Minppd) than the uniform p policy for all track configurations  ...

TrustToken, a Trusted SoC solution for Non-Trusted Intellectual Property (IP)s [article]

Muhammed Kawser Ahmed, Sujan Kumar Saha, Christophe Bobda
2022 arXiv   pre-print
The experiment results show that TrustToken can provide a secure, low-cost, and trusted solution for non-trusted SoC IPs.  ...  TrustToken only allows trusted communication between the non-trusted third-party IP and the rest of the SoC world by providing essential security features, i.e., secure, isolated execution, and trusted  ...  We used an asymmetric cryptographic solution that can generate identification tokens in runtime conditions without using any non-volatile memory or any secure boot system.  ...

Facilitated news as controlled information flows: The origins, rationale and dilemmas of 'embedded' journalism

Paul G Buchanan
2011 Pacific Journalism Review – Te Koakoa  
For the post-Vietnam US military, independent news coverage was problematic because it often contradicts the official war narrative and, if left unhindered, undermines public support for the war effort  ...  Since public support is crucial for success in a foreign war, particularly during lengthy engagements, independent news coverage is seen as a threat to the unity of the home front and therefore a threat  ...  To that can be added the return of independent journalists (again, mostly non-US citizens) to difficult-to-control battle spaces such as in Afghanistan, which unlike Iraq cannot be easily ring-fenced or  ...
