Multi-Object Geodesic Active Contours (MOGAC): A Parallel Sparse-Field Algorithm for Image Segmentation
An important task for computer vision systems is to segment adjacent structures in images without producing gaps or overlaps. Multi-object Level Set Methods (MLSM) perform this task with the benefit of sub-pixel accuracy. ...
Evaluation of Diagonal Confidence-Weighted Learning on the KDD Cup 1999 Dataset for Network Intrusion Detection Systems
In this study, I evaluate the performance of diagonal Confidence-Weighted (CW) online linear classification on the KDD Cup 1999 dataset for network intrusion detection systems (NIDS). This is a compatible relationship due ...
Classifying Network Protocol Implementation Versions: An OpenSSL Case Study
A new technique is presented for identifying the implementation version number of software that is used for Internet communications. While many programs may exchange version numbers, oftentimes only a small subset of them ...
iSeeYou: Disabling the MacBook Webcam Indicator LED
The ubiquitous webcam indicator LED is an important privacy feature which provides a visual cue that the camera is turned on. We describe how to disable the LED on a class of Apple internal iSight webcams used in some ...
Design and Implementation of Views: Isolated Perspectives of a File System
We present Views, a file system architecture that provides isolation between system components for the purposes of access control, regulatory compliance, and sandboxing. Views allows for discrete I/O entities, such as ...
Pseudorandom Number Generators on Atmel AVR AT90USB1287 Microcontrollers
The purpose of this report is to provide exhaustive details of my Computer Security Architecture project this spring 2008 semester. Ultimately, the goal has been to prepare a document that an undergraduate student can ...
