Quality-assured Secured Load Sharing in Mobile Cloud Networking Environment
Abstract— Quality-assured Secured Load Sharing in Mobile Cloud Networking Environment. In mobile cloud networks (MCNs), a mobile user is connected with a cloud server through a network gateway, which is responsible for providing the required quality-of-service < Final Year Projects 2016 > QoS to the users. If a user increases its service demand, the connecting gateway may fail to provide the requested QoS due to the overloaded demand, while the other gateways remain underloaded. Due to the increase in load in one gateway, the sharing of load among all the gateways is one of the prospective solutions for providing QoS-guaranteed services to the mobile users. Additionally, if a user misbehaves, the situation becomes more challenging. In this paper, we address the problem of QoS-guaranteed secured service provisioning in MCNs. We design a utility maximization problem for quality-assured secured load sharing (QuaLShare) in MCN, and determine its optimal solution using auction theory. In QuaLShare, the overloaded gateway detects the misbehaving gateways, and, then, prevents them from participating in the auction process. Theoretically, we characterize both the problem and the solution approaches in an MCN environment. Finally, we investigate the existence of Nash Equilibrium of the proposed scheme. We extend the solution for the case of multiple users, followed by theoretical analysis. Numerical analysis establishes the correctness of the proposed algorithms.
