Tutorial 1

Design Challenges in the Wireless Sensor Communications Networks

Tutorial Speaker

Dr. Vivek Deshpande
Associate Professor, Dean (Research and Development), MIT College of Engineering, Pune

Now-a-days Wireless Sensor Networks plays predominant role in the communication domain. The data to be disseminated from multiple sources to the destination base station or sink is having vital significance. There are many problems with which data can be conveyed up to the sink. The congestion, reliability, delay, fairness, etc. are of main concern. These can be treated as Quality of Service parameters that govern the performance of the WSN. Above all the Energy s consumption is the main constrain for WSN node. It is very difficult to obtain good QoS by keeping energy consumption low. Even if response of one of QoS parameter will depends on the many other QoS parameters. We have to take care of all QoS parameters to improve the performance of the wireless sensor networks. This Quality of Services may improve the application base of the WSN. With the QoS parameters the data dissemination along with energy optimization is get affected. We have to check the performance of the WSN against the QoS metrics for different data inputs. This may contain the periodic- non periodic data, event based data, transient or bursty data. For all these different types of inputs data we are checking the performance of QoS parameters like congestion, reliability and fairness. This may lead to new researcher to verify their results and excel their research work accordingly.
This tutorial will will able the audience to design and develop the wireless sensor network. They must able to analyze the performance of sensor network and would possibly build an applications based on the WSN for national and social interested activities.

Cryptographic Techniques for Secure Communication: Historical Perspective to Secret Sharing

Tutorial Speaker

Dr. Prakash D. Vyavahare
Senior Member IEEE, Professor and Head, Department of Electronics and Telecom. Engg.

Cryptographic techniques have been used for more than 2000 years to achieve confidentiality and authenticity in secure information transmission. Over the period of time various (cryptographic) codes have been designed (and broken) by employing mathematical structures and their properties. The field got impetus after the establishment of Kerckhoff’s principle (1883) and mathematical structures like Galois field (1832). The notion of confusion and diffusion by Claude Shannon (1949) and Shamir’s public key cryptography (1978) opened up new areas of research and development in the field of cryptology. The proliferation of internet and mobile technology during the last two decades has extended the applications of cryptography from traditional military applications to that of public (society) use such as secure e-payment over internet etc. This has lead to establishments of various standards such as 3DES, AES and RSA. The advancements in the processing speed of computers also necessitates design of new standards. Recently, the field has obtained a new dimension in the area of secret sharing (Shamir 1979) and multiple secret sharing (Li Bai 2006). The talk aims to cover the panoramic view conventional and asymmetric key cryptography and some of the developments in the field of secret sharing and possible areas of research in this emerging field.
