Born and raised distributively: Fully distributed non-interactive adaptively-secure threshold signatures with short shares

Benoît Libert, Marc Joye, Moti Yung
2016 Theoretical Computer Science  
In this paper, we construct practical fully distributed (the private key is born distributed), non-interactive schemeswhere the servers can compute their partial signatures without communication with other  ...  Threshold cryptography is a fundamental distributed computational paradigm for enhancing the availability and the security of cryptographic public-key schemes.  ...  They also suggested an adaptively secure and non-interactive threshold variant [54] of a signature scheme due to Lewko and Waters [51] .  ...

Quantum Cryptography: Key Distribution and Beyond

Akshata Shenoy-Hejamadi, Anirban Pathak, Srikanth Radhakrishna
2017 Quanta  
We review the progress of quantum cryptography in the last decade, covering quantum key distribution and other applications.</p><p>Quanta 2017; 6: 1–47.</p>  ...  We first begin with a short introduction of classical fiber optical communication [313, 314] and then its adaptation for quantum communication.  ...  But even a classical client can perform blind quantum computation by interacting with two entangled (but non-communicating) servers.  ...

2001 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Acknowledgements The authors would like to thank Jack Oden for distilling and Mary Ellen Leishear for editing the original report into this article.  ...  This result was borne out in our testing, with some small variance.  ...  Temporal/Interaction constraints are specified based on the permitted interaction between processes and shared resources. This constraint type includes atomicity, serialization, and mutual exclusion.  ...

A Distributed Cognitive Map for Spatial Navigation Based on Graphically Organized Place Agents

Douglas Rodney
2008 Frontiers in Neuroinformatics  
Animals quickly acquire spatial knowledge and are thereby able to navigate over very large regions.  ...  We have now developed a novel system for mobile robotic navigation that like its biological counterpart decomposes explored space into a distributed graphical network of behaviorally significant places  ...  Finally, for a robot that shall operate in vastly different environments such a threshold might best be learned and adapted based on feedback from the environment: a wrong fusion leads to non-traversable  ...

Performance Provisioning and Energy Efficiency in Cloud and Distributed Computing Systems [article]

Nikzad Babaii Rizvandi
2014 arXiv   pre-print
Second, we propose two algorithms for modelling and resource provisioning of MapReduce applications (a well-known parametric distributed framework currently used by Google, Yahoo, Facebook and LinkedIn  ...  To evaluate the algorithms, we have conducted extensive simulation and real experiments on a 5-node physical cluster with up to 25 virtual nodes, using both synthetic and real world applications.  ...  Raising the value of probability threshold will reduce the number of applications in the candidate pool, and consequently, increases the similarity selection accuracy.  ...

2015 2015 IEEE Innovative Smart Grid Technologies - Asia (ISGT ASIA)  
Contrary to contemporary practices, this philosophy is compatible with the low data recording and transmitting rates which smart meters are operated with.  ...  Unlike other benchmark forecasting models, this non-parametric approach does not introduce any assumptions regarding the system model and is solely based on past observations.  ...  This philosophy, which is based on non-parametric machine learning techniques, is automated and adaptable, therefore, being fundamentally compatible with TVPP requirements.  ...

The Fourier Theory of Vision

Gerald Westheimer
2001 Perception  
Non-classical surround zones with complex interacting properties would not be revealed because they are covered by the single overall grating pattern.  ...  Fourier arguments in vision that deal only with power spectra fall short of this goal because an image cannot be fully reconstructed from the power, ie the square of the amplitude, in the Fourier spectrum  ...
