2020 Applied Sciences  
As the scale of the system and network grows, IT infrastructure becomes more complex and hard to be managed. Many organizations have a serious problem to manage their system and network security. In addition, vulnerabilities of hardware and software are increasing in number rapidly. In such a complex IT environment, security administrators need more practical and automated threat assessment methods to reduce their manual tasks. Adversary emulation based automated assessment is one of the

However, it is still inefficient to perform the adversary emulation because adversary emulation requires well-designed attack scenarios created by security experts. Besides, a manual-based penetration test cannot be frequently performed. To overcome this limitation, we propose an adversary emulation framework composed of the red team and blue team agent. The red team agent carries out automated attacks based on the automatically generated scenarios by the proposed framework. The blue team agent deploys defense measures to react to the red team agent's attack patterns. To test our framework, we test multiple attack scenarios on remote servers that have various vulnerable software. In the experiment, we show the red team agent can gain an administrator's privilege from the remote side when the blue team agent's intervention is not enabled. The blue team agent can successfully block the red team's incoming attack when enabled. As a result, we show our proposed framework is beneficial to support routine threat assessment from the adversary's perspective. It will be useful for security administrators to make security defense strategy based on the test results.

Microstructure and Mechanical Properties of Reticulated Titanium Scrolls

Eunji Hong, Bok Y. Ahn, Daisuke Shoji, Jennifer A. Lewis, David C. Dunand
2011 Advanced Engineering Materials  
Titanium and its alloys find widespread use in skeletal implants and biomedical devices (e.g., stents and orthodontic applications) owing to their excellent corrosion resistance, bio-compatibility, static and fatigue strength, and lack of magnetism (an important property for magnetic imaging). [1] Microporous titanium provides two additional advantages for implant applications: first, it reduces the stiffness of the material, thus reducing stress shielding, [2, 3] and, second, it improves

[4] [5] [6] To date, powder metallurgy approaches have been widely used to create porous Ti structures, through partial sintering, [7] [8] [9] inclusion of pore formers, [10] [11] [12] [13] expansion of pores pressurized with argon or hydrogen gas, [14, 15] or replication of cellular polymers. [16, 17] Embrittlement often arises during processing due to the strong chemical affinity of titanium at elevated temperature with atmospheric oxygen, carbon, and nitrogen. Alternate efforts have focused on producing microarchitectured titanium, composed of lattice or truss structures with struts arranged periodically in space. These structures exhibit an outstanding combination of low density, high strength and stiffness, and good damage tolerance. [18] To date, production methods for microarchitectured titanium have focused on replication precision casting, [19, 20] sintering of stacked wire arrays, [21] as well as selective electron beam, [22] [23] [24] or laser [25] sintering of Ti powders. Recently, we introduced a new method for creating 3D microarchitectured Ti structures that combines: [26] (i) direct ink writing (DIW) of planar lattices composed of two layers of orthogonally oriented, patterned TiH 2 filament arrays, followed by (ii) rolling of these pliable lattices into scrolls, or folding into complex three-dimensional shapes, and finally (iii) heat-treating to reduce the hydride to metallic titanium. This new method is characterized by its simplicity, high shape versatility, and ability to control local geometry, as well as scalability to larger structures. [26] Here, we use this novel COMMUNICATION [*] Prof.

2017 Journal of Minimally Invasive Surgery  
Simultaneous laparoscopic surgery for colorectal cancer and coexisting abdominal disease is shown to be feasible. However, simultaneous laparoscopic colorectal resection and nephrectomy is rarely documented, and its feasibility is unknown. We report two cases of simultaneous colorectal resection for colorectal cancer and nephrectomy. In the first case, a 71-year-old female underwent laparoscopic right hemicolectomy for an ascending colon cancer and left nephrectomy for a left non-functioning

2015 2015 17th International Conference on Advanced Communication Technology (ICACT)  
The increase of memory capacity has not kept up with the continuous increase of large memory applications. Therefore, approaches to utilize remote memory like a local memory has been considered as a cost effective way to run large memory application in the cluster environment where computing nodes are connected via high speed network. For the users of HPC cluster to run large memory application without administrator's support, we suggest a user-level remote memory extension method. We designed

It includes userlevel API and page fault handling mechanism, temporal page pool management and remote page prefetching algorithm. We also developed a performance test program to show if the userlevel remote memory extension library works well. From the experimental test, we found that user-level remote memory extension library works well for applications with sequential access pattern.

Association between Metabolic Components and Subclinical Atherosclerosis in Korean Adults

In Cheol Hwang, Sang-Yeon Suh, Ah-Ram Seo, Hong Yup Ahn, Eunji Yim
2012 Korean Journal of Family Medicine  
Many studies have attempted to develop relatively simple and easy noninvasive measurements of atherosclerosis (NIMA), and each NIMA assesses different atherosclerotic properties. We, therefore, investigated the association between metabolic syndrome (MetS) components and different NIMAs. Methods: This study included 1,132 Korean subjects over 20 years of age who had visited a Health Promotion Center in Korea. Carotid injury (increased carotid intima-media thickness or plaques) was evaluated by

The MetS components were assessed according to the Asian criteria of the American Heart Association/National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute. Results: Both arterial stiffness and carotid injury gradually deteriorated with increase in the number of MetS components. Arterial stiffness and carotid injury were associated with different MetS components, each of which had varying impact. After adjustment for all possible confounders such as age, sex, and lifestyle, elevated blood pressure (BP) was found to have the strongest association with arterial stiffness, whereas central obesity, impaired fasting plasma glucose, and elevated BP had comparable connection with carotid atherosclerosis. Conclusion: Individual MetS components were related with subclinical atherosclerosis in different ways. Elevated BP showed the strongest association with arterial stiffness, while central obesity, impaired fasting plasma glucose, and elevated BP showed good correlation with carotid atherosclerosis.

CFD를 이용한 천음속 날개-동체 형상 해석

Younghwa Kim, Eunji Kang, Hyokeun Ahn
2017 Journal of the Korean Society for Aeronautical & Space Sciences  
The flowfield around transonic wing-body configuration was simulated using in-house CFD code and compared with the experimental data to understand the influence of several features of CFD(Computational Fluid Dynamics) ; grid dependency, turbulence models, spatial discretization, and viscosity. The wing-body configuration consists of a simple planform RAE Wing 'A' with an RAE 101 airfoil section and an axisymmetric body. The in-house CFD code is a compressible Euler/Navier-Stokes solver based on

For the spatial discretization method, the central differencing scheme with Jameson's artificial viscosity and Roe's upwind differencing scheme were applied. The results calculated were generally in good agreement with experimental data. However, it was shown that the pressure distribution and shock-wave position were slightly affected by the turbulence models and the spatial discretization methods. It was known that the turbulent viscous effect should be considered in order to predict the accurate shock wave position. 초 록 본 연구에서는 전산유체역학의 특징에 대한 이해를 위해 천음속 날개-동체 주위의 유동장을 In-house 전산유체 코드로 해석하여 시험 결과와 비교하였다. 날개는 RAE 101 익형 단면을 가 진 RAE Wing 'A'이며 동체는 축대칭 형상이다. In-house 코드는 비정렬 격자 기반의 압축성 Euler/Navier-Stokes 해석 코드이다. 격자에 대한 의존도, 난류 모형, 공간차분 기법, 점성/비점 성의 영향을 시험 결과와 비교하여 살펴보았다. 난류 모형은 k-ω 모형, Spalart-Allmaras 모형, k--ω SST을 적용하였고, 공간차분 기법은 Jameson의 인공 점성를 도입한 중앙 차분 기법과 Roe의 풍상 차분 기법을 적용하였다. 대체적으로 시험 결과를 잘 예측하였으나, 압력분포 및 충격파의 위치가 난류 모형 및 공간 차분 기법에 따라 조금씩 다르게 예측되었으며, 정확한 충 격파 위치를 예측하기 위해서는 난류 점성 효과가 고려되어야 함을 알 수 있다.

Of them, 30 patients underwent the operation under LA and the others underwent the operation under GA. Except for the anesthesia method, the same surgical technique was adopted for all patients. All medical records were retrospectively reviewed. (3) Results: the total operation time and total hospital days were relatively shorter, post-chest tube drainage was significantly shorter (0.04), and visual analog scale (VAS) scores in the outpatient clinic were significantly lower in the LA group than in the GA group (p = 0.01). The incidence of postoperative recurrence after discharge in the LA group (3.3%) was also lower than in the GA group (18.67%) (p = 0.001). In the LA group, there were no cases of conversion to intubation. (4) Conclusions: our results showed relatively better clinical outcomes in VATS under LA with sedation than under GA in the treatment of PSP. Hence, LA with sedation can be considered as a robust anesthetic technique for VATS and as applicable in the surgical treatment of PSP.

2019 Biomedical Optics Express  
In vivo, longitudinal observation of tumorigenesis in a live mouse model over an extended time period has been actively pursued to obtain a better understanding of the cellular and molecular mechanism in a highly complex tumor microenvironment. However, common intravital imaging approaches based on a conventional laser scanning confocal or a two-photon microscope have been mostly limited to the observation of superficial parts of the solid tumor tissue. In this work, we implemented a small

IRA for the 2020 Incentive Scheme for Quality Evaluation of Hospital Services were used as data collection sources.Results: The NQAP analysisrevealed that the overall average scores were higher for public rather than private hospitals, while the Incentive Scheme for Quality Evaluation of Hospital Services analysis reported that the proportion of higher grades (i.e., grades 1 and 2) was higher in public hospitals. Therefore, it was revealed that public hospital quality levels were notlowerthan that of private hospitals.However, itis necessary to improve the quality levelsin terms ofthe quality distribution.Conclusions: The quality levels of public hospitals are notlowerthan that of private hospitals. However,the high average quality level, we identified certain areas that required improvement in their quality level throughout the distribution. Currently, public hospitals that are particularly located in the lower ranks should strive to achieve the average quality level demonstrated by same level private hospitals, thereby, achieving progressive quality levels and minimizing the between institutions. Thus, furtherresearch should focus on identifying the trends of differencesin quality levels, and they should determine the causes by controlling for the characteristics of medical institutions.
