RFID Security – Threats and Solutions

Radio frequency identification (RFID) systems are widely applied to identify an object from its digitalized information attached and the associated information stored in a server. RFID systems are facing various security threats due to lack of protection. Protecting RFID systems against external attacks is a very challenging task, since the computational power of RFID systems is generally very weak. In this talk, I will firstly outline major security threats to RFID systems in various RFID environments. Then, I will describe current research toward practical solutions to RFID security.

Web Community Mining

Due to the inherent correlation among Web objects and the lack of a uniform schema of web documents, Web community mining and analysis has become an important area for Web data management and analysis. The research of Web communities spans a number of research domains such as Web mining, Web search, clustering and text retrieval. In this talk we will present some recent studies on this topic, which cover finding relevant Web pages based on linkage information, discovering user access patterns through analyzing Web log files, co-clustering Web objects and investigating social networks from Web data. The algorithmic issues and related experimental studies will be addressed. Some research directions are also to be discussed.
