Online Banking: Information Security vs. Hackers Research Paper[[References]


In this paper I will discuss four scenarios regarding cyber crimes specifically directed at financial institutions and give specific examples. Also, I will discuss the malicious Zeus and URLzone bank malware Trojans that is currently causing security issues and threats to some financial institutions. Expected results from study and research is to bring awareness of increased activity of cyber-attacks directed at financial institutions, call for a global alliance against cyber-pirates, and point out that financial institution's have a responsibility to protect and secure information as custodians of their customer's sensitive/legacy data online.

Server Consolidation: An Approach to Make Data Centers Energy Efficient and Green[] [References]


Data centers are the building blocks of IT business organizations providing the capabilities of centralized repository for storage, management, networking and dissemination of data. With the rapid increase in the capacity and size of data centers, there is a continuous increase in the demand for energy consumption. These data centers not only consume a tremendous amount of energy but are riddled with IT inefficiencies. All data center are plagued with thousands of servers as major components. These servers consume huge energy without performing useful work. In an average server environment, 30% of the servers are "dead" only consuming energy, without being properly utilized. Their utilization ratio is only 5 to 10 percent. This paper focuses on the use of an emerging technology called virtualization to achieve energy efficient data centers by providing a solution called server consolidation. It increases the utilization ratio up to 50% saving huge amount of energy. Server consolidation helps in implementing green data centers to ensure that IT infrastructure contributes as little as possible to the emission of green house gases, and helps to regain power and cooling capacity, recapture resilience and dramatically reducing energy costs and total cost of ownership.

FPGA Implementation of Optimized DES Encryption Algorithm on Spartan 3E[] [References]


Data Security is an important parameter for the industries. It can be achieved by Encryption algorithms which are used to prevent unauthorized access of data. Cryptography is the science of keeping data transfer secure, so that eavesdroppers (or attackers) cannot decipher the transmitted message. In this paper the DES algorithm is optimized using Xilinx software and implemented on Spartan 3E FPGA kit. The paper deal with the various parameters such as variable key length, key generation mechanism, etc used in order to provide optimized results.
