Yohtaro Miyanishi (Graduate school of system information science, Future University-Hakodate)

Recently, computer and computer network technologies have been developed rapidly, and individual information and company secret are flowing on the Internet. According to it, the technology of the illegal intruder to networks, such as a cracker, and a destroyer also progresses, and a crime is turning wicked. Therefore, security is becoming important, in order to prevent tapping or alteration etc. Moreover, the personnel system of a company etc. is the hierarchical database with which only in person and a superior can see data, and security is important also here. Then, in this paper, we propose construction technique of the hierarchical database of high security when creating a hierarchical database, using encryption program called PGP, it performs not only access control but also data authentication and data protection and data decision.

(2) A User Initiative Content Exchange Method for Secure Peer-to-Peer System

Kenichi OKADA (Department of Instrumentation(Information), Faculty of Science and Technology, Keio University)

Peer-to-peer systems have the feature that distributes contents autonomously, and be in the spotlight for the new contents distribution system. But for the actual P2P system, there are problems about copyright, illegal copy and so on, so for not only content holders but also P2P users have the risk in the P2P system. Therefore we propose a content secure P2P system in which contents contain the information about the permission and they are distributed according to the poliscy set by P2P users. Moreover we implements the prototype, and evaluate it.

A Time-Stamp is issued by Time-Stamping Authority (TSA) and is evidence of Time-of -existence of digital documents. Time-of-existence is used by a local clock of TSA. In order to keep accuracy of TSA's local clock, TSA synchronizes time of Time Authority (TA). But it is difficult to verify time guaranteed by synchronized time. A method of identifying TA is a task in "A Method of Time Certification using Time Evidence" [3]. In this paper, we propose method of identifying TA.

(4) Server-aided digital signature system
Kimihiko Sekino (NTT DoCoMo, Inc.)

With the introduction of JPKI service, growth of digital signature is expected. Also, with the availability of mobile phones with SSL functionality, focus will be on PKI technology. In this paper, with the limitation of functionality of mobile phones, we propose server-aided digital signature system that generate digital signature by using SSL function of a mobile phone, and cooperative server.

(5) Genuineness Guarantee Method at Server-aided Digital Signature System
Kimihiko Sekino (NTT DoCoMo,Inc.)

With the growth of e-commerce, to insure security, use of digital signature is becoming popular. Still, there are some difficulties in using digital signature on small terminals such as mobile phones because XML which is common form of digital signature is not supported on these terminals. For this reason, server-aided digital signature system which transforms XML into HTML, which can be used by mobile phones, was proposed. In this paper, we discuss threats for the system, and then propose a guarantee method to overcome these threats.

In object-based systems, objects are distributed in multiple object servers like database servers interconnected with communication networks. Objects are manipulated only through their own methods. Methods are procedures for manipulating an object. We first extend traditional lock modes for read and write on simple objects like files and tables to methods on objects. We introduce new types of conflicting relations among methods, availability and exclusion ones. Then, we define a partially ordered relation on lock modes showing which one is weaker than another for a pair of modes. We discuss a moderate concurrency control algorithm for concurrently manipulating distributed objects. Before manipulating an object through a method, the object is locked in a weaker mode than a an intrinsic mode of the method. Then, the lock mode is escalated to the method mode. The weaker the initial mode is the more concurrency is obtained but the higher frequently deadlock occurs.

(8) Multi-Striping: Multicast Protocol with Network Striping Approach on Grid Computing Environment

Makoto Takizawa (Dept. of Computers and Systems Engineering Tokyo Denki University)

This paper discusses a novel type of high-performance data transmission protocol for multicasting multimedia messages in a Grid network. A Grid network is composed of various types of computers interconnected in types of networks. There can be multiple routes from a sender process to each of destination processes in a Grid network. Multimedia data can be in parallel transmitted to multiple processes by using multiple routes. In addition, messages can be replicated by not only in a same route but also in different routes. Some packets lost can be recovered from the redundant parity packets. We evaluate the protocol in terms of jitter and effective packet loss ratio, compared with traditional tree routing.

The Japanese government promotes the "e-Japan strategy II" and the deregulation of electricity market. They aim at higher-level services, which require real-time telemetering from huge number of consumers. We propose distributed data management and collection mechanism through information distribution boards described on the e-Japan strategy II. The proposal consists of two components; the first is hierarchical data management for huge number of distributed data, and the second is distributed snapshot to enable time-aligned data collection. We have implemented the basic functions of the former and checked the behavior and the feasibility. Finally, we mention on subjects to be solved for practical use.

(10) Subjects and Solutions on Huge-Scale Distributed Equipment Management System

Yasushi TAKAHATA

Recently, as for factories and plants, costs for maintenance such as inspections and exchange of equipment rise more than the introduction costs of new equipment. To reduce these costs, the mentenance policy changes from time-based to condition-based. And the demand for management centers that serve with online-monitoring, remote maintenance, diagnosis and so on is increasing. In this paper, the subjects and solutions to realize these new management centers are studied and the considered implementation is described.

Disclosures of information have been a serious issue in computer systems that store classified information such as personal data. Especially, the countermeasure for fraud caused by inside person is difficult. Mandatory file encryption will be able to solve the problem of taking hard disk or removable media includes classified information, but also limit the usage of unclassified information. We propose a system that has capabilities to separate unclassified information from classified information, encrypt classified files only, and prevent intentional plaintext transfer from classified files to unclassified files.

In this paper, packet loss rate control of continuous multimedia communication system under heterogeneous envi-ronment by the wired and the wireless networks is presented and analyzed. In our suggested system, as channel coding, FEC (Forward Error Correction) method with Reed-Solomon coding is introduced to reduce the packet error rate on the wireless network. In order to verify the functionality and the efficiency in our suggested system, numerical simulation for packet loss on wireless network was carried out. As the result, packet loss could be im-proved by increase of the number of FEC redundant packet.

So far, we have developed effective Wide area Disaster information Network (WDN) using Internet over the combination of both wired and wireless network. In this information network, two important functions including resident safety information system and bi-directional video communication system between evacuation places and disaster information center are provided. However, in this WDN, system failure of network and computing facilities by disaster was not considered. In order to recover the information system as soon as possible from the system failure, network protocol has to deal with those requirements. In this paper, we introduce Wireless Recovery Protocol (WRP) to temporally recover WDM with minimum configuration as soon as possible even though some of network and computing facilities were damaged by disaster, using network management and GPS functions. The design and implementation of the WRP is precisely described. The prototype system and its hardware and software environment to evaluate its functionality are also precisely described.

This paper proposes an autonomous topology optimization and recovery mechanism for peer-to-peer networks. The general topology of peer-to-peer overlay networks is constructed randomly without considering the characteristics of physical links. Thus searching and routing between peer nodes is influenced. In our research, peer nodes optimize the topology of peer-to-peer networks based on the metrics of physical links. And under the assumption that peer nodes leave the network or fail, how to recover the split of the network topology by neighbor peer nodes is discussed.

DNS (Domain Name System) plays an important role in the Internet. It provides the mechanism for translating internet domain names for network hosts into IP addresses. As the Internet has grown to become a business infrastructure, security extensions to the DNS have been discussed and developed. However, any sort of access control lists or other means to differentiate inquirers are not provided in these extensions. Therefore, the authors have been proposed the access control mechanism for DNS, which authenticates inquirers. In this paper, we show the development of the DNS with access control and the estimation results.

Kouichi SAKURAI (Faculty of Information Science and Electrical Engineering, Kyushu University)

Compared with IDS installed on a network, IDS installed on a host can use more information for intrusion detection. However, IDS installed on a host can detect intrusion into only the host. Therefore, when a host is newly connected to the network, it is necessary to newly install IDS into the connected host. In this paper, Agent-based IDS is proposed. The system can automatically install IDS into the connected host On the proposed system, the mobility of mobile agents can save the time and effort of introduction of IDS. Moreover, by simultaneous distribution of upgraded agents, efficient maintenance management is realized.

(21) A Cooperative P2P Environment for Network Intrusion Detection

In this project, we are trying to design, implement and deploy a cooperative P2P environment for Network Intrusion Detection. The P2P environment consists of multiple peers running the same NIDS (Network IDS); we called CoIDS (Cooperative IDS). CoIDS is a signature based NIDS using Snort rules, that we fully implemented in Java. CoIDS offers 3 types of functions namely packets analysis and intrusion detection in the local network, P2P functionalities using JXTA API, and Information sharing for cooperative intrusion detection.

(22) A quality improvement of anomaly-based network intrusion detection
Toru KONNO

In anomaly-based network intrusion detection, the accuracy of detection rate is critical to quality. By applying Taguchi method, we succeeded at 1) reducing the false detection rate to half, 2) enhancing the robustness of software design, and 3) optimizing the system parameters with opposite effect, such as successful detection rate and false detection rate, with measuring "the standardized S/N ratio of digital data".

These days, the Internet accessibility makes it vulnerable in terms of security. Above all, Denial-of-Service (DoS) attacks have become one of the most serious threats. DoS attacks consume a network or remote host's resources and degrade service to legitimate users. Recently, it has been tried to introduce 'Kolmogorov Complexity' into a method to detect DoS attacks. Kolmogorov Complexity is a concept to measure the size of the smallest program capable of representing the given piece of data. In our study, we present availability of applying Kolmogorov Complexity to detect DoS attacks by introducing some estimation of Kolmogorov Complexity.

It is effective to take measures at the network devices as close to DDoS agents as possible before attack starts, in order to protect not only target servers but also infrastructure of the Internet. In this paper, we propose a system which blocks DDoS attacks at the closest network devices to DDoS agents following forecasts issued by DDoS forecast system. And we present the results of applying our prototype to a pusedo Internet in our laboratory. The paper concludes by discussing the potential and limitation of this approach.

Spam filters are commonly used for a kind of protection measures of spam mail, which is one of the most serious problems on e-mail environment. As a kind of filtering methods, distributed cooperative filter is remarkable since its false positive rate is very small. However, this method has a significant drawback that its accuracy is considerably low. In this paper,in order to improve the accuracy of distributed cooperative filters, we propose a delayed evaluation technique such that filtering is performed when a Mail User Agent (MUA) has access to the mail server. This method can generate an additional period for registration of new spam mails received by other users, therefore we expect it improves the accuracy. We have also implemented the proposed method as a POP proxy, and shows that the accuracy may be improved in small overheads.

In late years, cellular phones that can access the Internet have spread explosively. However, the amount of information obtained from the Internet access using cellular phones is by far smaller than that obtained from the Internet access using PC. This arises from that cellular phones can not display a lot of web pages for PC. In this paper, we implement a system that enables acquisition of information from web pages for PC using cellular phone easily.

(27) A Proposal of Message Distribution Service with Incubation Period
Junpei Hato (Information Technology R&D Center, Mitsubishi Electric Corp.)

Masashi Saito (Information Technology R&D Center, Mitsubishi Electric Corp.)

According to recent wireless network technology, we can dynamically connect our own mobile terminals to the Internet and access many kinds of information. In addition to this, wireless LAN enables us to communicate with other terminals directly. However, it is difficult for us to choose some valuable information from so much information in the Internet. In addition, direct e-mail messages bother us and often deal them with spam. In this paper, we propose message distribution service with incubation period. All messages are received using some push technologies, but it does not leads the notification of message receives to the users. These messages are set to dormant, and when some events which increase the value of messages occurs, then the receiving events are notified. To use this method, we can access valuable information timely.

Along with the rapid spread of broadband, streaming style animation are being adopted in the field of internet commercial As proven by many studies, the current application of the animated internet commercial is quite effective. By considering the application from viewpoints such as cost and use case, however, there are still a lot of problems. This paper presents a new method of commercial broadcast and its implementation. Generally, traditional methods only read scheduled commercial contents and do commercial broadcast within a specified region. By contrast, the proposed method enables commercial broadcasting under various use cases and detailed timing for different users(customers).

Recently many communication systems based on three dimensional spaces are proposed. In those systems, in order to support many users in the same space, QoS control function based on the distance among the avatars is mainly applied. For this reason, the computing and network resources in the communication systems are wasted as the number of the users increases. In this paper, we propose a new QOS control to take account of user's interest and status information in addition to the distance among the avatars. Using this method, un-necessary communication and resources can be reduced and more interested communication can be attained with higher priority in the large communication space.

(30) Implementation and Evaluation of Feeling Communication System Based on Individual User Model

Yoshitaka Shibata (Faculty of Software and Information Science, Iwate Prefectural University)

Recently, as advent of Internet and broadband network technologies, remote communication system such as video conference system, has been popular to communicate each other at the remote places. In such system, although understanding of the real feeling of the partner can be usually understood from his facial expression, the difference of the individual facial expression is always generated and prevents them from the mutual understanding. This difference becomes more serious specially when both are not familiar each other. On order to resolve this problem, we suggest a feeling communication system to attain real and smooth communication by feeling in consideration of individual user model. In our system, the real feeling of the partner is extracted by recognition part, transmitted through the network and synthesize into the facial expression using individual user model. This paper describes the system architecture and design issued and methodology to realize a total system. In order to verify the usefulness of suggested method, a prototype system is constructed to evaluate its functionality and performance.

(31) A Detection Method for MITM Attack against Public-key Protocols and Its Appllication to SSH

It is well known that the protocols to which public-key cryptography is naively applied are vulnerable to the so-called "{\em \{Man,MIG,Monkey\}-In-The-Middle (MITM)\/}" attack, which is conducted by an adversary sitting between the sender and the receiver and mediating transfered data with modification at her/his will. We present a neat method to counter such MITM attacks without relying upon the possibly overkilling frameworks such as PKI. The experimental results with its application to an Internet secure protocol SSH is also exhibited.

(32) TPod - Trusted Platform on demand

In service-centric, "on demand" computing, establishing stronger trust on networked platforms is a key requirement because these remote platforms are often owned and managed by separate entities. The research described in this paper is an architecture and implementation called Trusted Platform on Demand (TPod), which increases the trustworthiness of networked platforms by combining dedicated security hardware, a secure operating system kernel and an open security protocol, to provide a secure software platform that may host a diverse range of distributed applications. Especially significant is the fact that the applications are better protected even if there are vulnerabilities in the application software or in the system software, or the system administrator is not completely trustworthy.

(33) The buffer overflow attack detection and the attack traces extraction in a binary program
MAKOTO IWAMURA (NTT Information Sharing Platform Laboratories, NTT Corporation)
DAI KASIWA (NTT Information Sharing Platform Laboratories, NTT Corporation)

The cases where vulnerabilities in PCs are abused via a network are increasing by the increase in the number of PCs connected to a network. The buffer overflow is one of the most serious vulnerabilities since the buffer overflow in such vulnerabilities is abused as the method of an intrusion or a DoS(Denial Of Service) attack. Especially in the Windows environment, the worm using the uniformity of the application code assignment, such as Slammer and Blaster, with high infection capability appeared. In this paper, the buffer overflow detection technique in the Windows environment and the experiment result by actual attack and its validity are described. Furthermore, we work on the further measures interlocked with the buffer overflow detection function, and describe their realization method.

Although password can be very useful and widely used in all kind of authentication, one problem with password is the human limitation to remember secure passwords. In recent years, several user authentication systems such as image-based authentication and episodic-memory-based authentication have been studied for reducing the load to human memory. Here we focus on another kind of human characteristic: the second trial is easier than the first trial. In general, when people face some task again which he/she has complete before, he/she would be able to finish the task faster than before. In this paper, this human characteristic is exploited to make authentication systems more effective.

(35) Customizable Hardware Implementation of IPsec With Respect to Its Function and Performance

In this paper, we propose a method to customize the IPsec system, enabling to include/exclude each of the IPsec components and to predict the performance and area cost of the resulting entire hardware implementation. The customization is based on a design framework where IPsec functions are modularized and the interfaces between them are well defined. We illustrate the usefulness of our proposal by designing some of the hardware components satisfying the definitions and using them to customize the system for several specific applications. Evaluations of the effectiveness of the customizing in terms of making design tradeoffs among IPsec hardware realization with respect to the performance and area costs are also given.

With the popularity of mobile internet service for mobile phones, wide range of contents is becoming available. Information tied to the contractor and which is held by the communication operator can increase convenience for the user and variation of services. In this paper, we propose a method to provide attributes on behalf of the user. We define essential conditions of providing attributes and types of attributes held by the operator. We also show the system structures and the providing sequence of the two methods called "the push method", requested by the mobile phone, and "the pull method", requested by the contents provider. Moreover we show the basis and the operation method of the privacy control by which the user can reflect his/her own policy of providing attributes.

At present, as increase of the needs of long life learning, remote education systems have important increased as one of the educational techniques. Along with the popularization of the Internet and broadband, many people are exchanging more and more using video among remote sites. Even now communication by High definition video is possible and various remote educational systems are proposed. However, by order to realize a type of sophisticated lesson involving by exercise and practical training distantly, it is necessary to grasp during the lesson. Moreover, in the case where more interactive communication is performed on real time, high speed network is needed. In this paper, multiple video images with various angle are require, during the lesson is grasped using a panorama video. And Real time interactive communication is realized on IP network using by a transcoding function. The prototyped remote educational support system is constructed to evaluate described.

By reason of spread of cellular phones that can accesss the Internet, the opportunity of web browsing by a cellular phone has been increased. However, the web pages that was made for the PC are not suited for browsing by cellular phones. Moreover, we can not browse the web site by cellular phones, in some cases. Ordinarily, website developers have to make over the web pages for cellular phone. But, this task is inefficient for administration of website. In this paper, to tackle this problem, we implement an automatic conversion system of the web pages for cellular phone.
