            NB-IoT is the Internet of Things (IoT) technology used for cellular communication. NB-IoT devices deliver much better capability and performance such as increased area coverage of up to one Kilo-meter, massive number of devices up to 200,000 devices per a single base station area..., longer battery lifetime of 10 years, and better indoor and outdoor coverage for area with weak signal such as underground garages. The cellular NB-IoT technology is a challenging technology to use and understand. With more than +30 projects presented in this book, covering many use cases and scenarios, it provides hands-on and practical experience of how to use the cellular NB-IoT for smart applications using Arduino, Amazon cloud, Google map, and charts. The book starts by explaining AT commands used to configure the NB-IoT modem, data serialization and deserialization, how to set up the cloud for connecting NB-IoT devices, setting up rules, policy, security certificates, and NoSQL database on the cloud, how to store and read data on cloud, how to use Google map to visualize NB-IoT device geo-location, and how to use charts to visualize sensor datasets. Projects for Arduino are presented into four parts. The first part explains how to connect the device to the mobile operator and cellular network, perform communication using different network protocols such as TCP, HTTP, SSL, or MQTT, how to use GPS for geo-location applications, and how to upgrade NB-IoT modem firmware over the air. The second part explains the microcontroller unit and how to build and run projects such as 7-segment display or real time clock. The third part explains how NB-IoT can be used with sensor devices such as ultrasonic and environmental sensors. Finally, the fourth part explains how NB-IoT can be used to control actuators such as stepper motors and relays. This book is a unique resource in understanding practical uses of the NB-IoT technology and serves as a handbook for technical and non-technical readers who a

            Analyzing and Securing Social Networks focuses on the two major technologies that have been developed for online social networks (OSNs): (i) data mining technologies for analyzing these networks and extracting useful information such as location, demographics, and sentiments of t...he participants of the network, and (ii) security and privacy technologies that ensure the privacy of the participants of the network as well as provide controlled access to the information posted and exchanged by the participants. The authors explore security and privacy issues for social media systems, analyze such systems, and discuss prototypes they have developed for social media systems whose data are represented using semantic web technologies. These experimental systems have been developed at The University of Texas at Dallas. The material in this book, together with the numerous references listed in each chapter, have been used for a graduate-level course at The University of Texas at Dallas on analyzing and securing social media. Several experimental systems developed by graduate students are also provided. The book is divided into nine main sections: (1) supporting technologies, (2) basics of analyzing and securing social networks, (3) the authors' design and implementation of various social network analytics tools, (4) privacy aspects of social networks, (5) access control and inference control for social networks, (6) experimental systems designed or developed by the authors on analyzing and securing social networks, (7) social media application systems developed by the authors, (8) secure social media systems developed by the authors, and (9) some of the authors' exploratory work and further directions.

            As the number of Internet-based consumer transactions continues to rise, the need to protect these transactions against hacking becomes more and more critical. An effective approach to securing information on the Internet is to analyze the signature of attacks in order to build a... defensive strategy. This book explains how to accomplish this using honeypots and routers. It discusses honeypot concepts and architecture as well as the skills needed to deploy the best honeypot and router solutions for any network environment. Honeypots and Routers: Collecting Internet Attacks begins by providing a strong grounding in the three main areas involved in Internet security: Computer networks: technologies, routing protocols, and Internet architecture Information and network security: concepts, challenges, and mechanisms System vulnerability levels: network, operating system, and applications The book then details how to use honeypots to capture network attacks. A honeypot is a system designed to trap an adversary into attacking the information systems in an organization. The book describes a technique for collecting the characteristics of the Internet attacks in honeypots and analyzing them so that their signatures can be produced to prevent future attacks. It also discusses the role of routers in analyzing network traffic and deciding whether to filter or forward it. The final section of the book presents implementation details for a real network designed to collect attacks of zero-day polymorphic worms. It discusses the design of a double-honeynet system architecture, the required software tools, and the configuration process using VMware. With the concepts and skills you learn in this book, you will have the expertise to deploy a honeypot solution in your network that can track attackers and provide valuable information about their source, tools, and tactics.

            The future of Internet security doesn't lie in doing more of the same. It requires not only a new architecture, but the means of securing that architecture. Two trends have come together to make the topic of this book of vital interest. First, the explosive growth of the Internet... connections for the exchange of information via networks increased the dependence of both organizations and individuals on the systems stored and communicated. This, in turn, has increased the awareness for the need to protect the data and add security as chief ingredient in the newly emerged architectures. Second, the disciplines of cryptography and network security have matured and are leading to the development of new techniques and protocols to enforce the network security in Future Internet. This book examines the new security architectures from organizations such as FIArch, GENI, and IETF and how they'll contribute to a more secure Internet.

            Many enterprises are moving their applications and IT services to the cloud. Better risk management results in fewer operational surprises and failures, greater stakeholder confidence and reduced regulatory concerns; proactive risk management maximizes the likelihood that an ente...rprise's objectives will be achieved, thereby enabling organizational success. This work methodically considers the risks and opportunities that an enterprise taking their applications or services onto the cloud must consider to obtain the cost reductions and service velocity improvements they desire without suffering the consequences of unacceptable user service quality.
