Unearthing Stealthy Program Attacks Buried in Extremely Long Execution Paths
Modern stealthy exploits can achieve attack goals without introducing illegal control flows, e.g., tampering with noncontrol data and waiting for the modified data to propagate and alter the control flow legally. Existing ...
Opinion: Mathematical models: A key tool for outbreak response
The 2014 outbreak of Ebola in West Africa is unprecedented in its size and geographic range, and demands swift, effective action from the international community. Understanding the dynamics and spread of Ebola is critical ...
Monitoring Disease Trends using Hospital Traffic Data from High Resolution Satellite Imagery: A Feasibility Study
Challenges with alternative data sources for disease surveillance include differentiating the signal from the noise, and obtaining information from data constrained settings. For the latter, events such as increases in ...
Thermoelectric properties of DC-sputtered filled skutterudite thin film
(American Institute of Physics, 2015-03-28)
The Yb filled CoSb3 skutterudite thermoelectric thin films were prepared by DC magnetron sputtering. The electrical conductivity, Seebeck coefficient, thermal conductivity, and figure of merit ZT of the samples are ...
Toxicity of Particulate Matter from Incineration of Nanowaste
(The Royal Society of Chemistry, 2015-01-13)
Disposal of some nanomaterial-containing waste by incineration and the subsequent formation of particulate matter (PM) along with hazardous combustion by-products are inevitable. The effect of nanomaterials on the toxicity ...
GC-on-chip: integrated column and photoionization detector
(The Royal Society of Chemistry, 2015-02-04)
This paper reports a unique GC-on-chip module comprising a monolithically integrated semi-packed micro separation column (μSC) and a highly sensitive micro helium discharge photoionization detector (μDPID). While semi-packed ...
Microbial composition of purified waters and implications for regrowth control in municipal water systems
(The Royal Society of Chemistry, 2015-08-25)
The limits of water treatment to control microbial regrowth were examined using highly purified waters. Measurable microbial genetic material was detected in the product water in a survey of thirteen laboratory pure water ...
Results of a digital library curriculum field test
The DL Curriculum Development project was launched in 2006, responding to an urgent need for consensus on DL curriculum across the fields of computer science and information and library science. Over the course of several ...
Effects of wall roughness on turbulent junction flow characteristics
(Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2015-12-26)
Global measurements of turbulent flows at wall–cylinder junctions are employed to quantify the effects of wall roughness on the behavior of the horseshoe vortex system (HVS). Two laboratory setups were considered: one with ...
High correlations between temperature and nitric oxide in the thermosphere
