Yan Yan, Elisabeth Oswald, Theo Tryfonas
2016 2016 IEEE International Workshop on Information Forensics and Security (WIFS)  
Our study finds that whilst cryptographic algorithms for confidentiality and authenticity are supported in hardware on a popular class of devices, there is no adequate support for random number generation  ...  We consider this reading as a generic office use case and the result of randomness test as evidence to the sampling method.  ...  He can then recover the secret signing key d by computing: e = SHA − 1(m) d = r −1 (sk − e) mod n (6) ECDHE ECDHE [17] is a key exchange protocol that allows two party to derive a shared secret.  ...

Collaborative open strategic planning: a method and case study

Alireza Amrollahi, Bruce Rowlands
2017 Information Technology and People  
Abstract This study employs a design science perspective to propose a methodology for open strategic planning (OSP).  ...  Design principles are explained through a blueprint of the system and process. The proposed methodology is applied and evaluated in two cases.  ...  First, a case study protocol, containing each of the interview guides was used. Second, reliability was further increased through the maintenance of a case study data base.  ...
