Resource Management: Misbehavior in Dynamic Environment

September 6, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Co-sponsored by: SP01 and School of Computer Sciences and Engineering, FDU

Resource management is essential in distributed systems. How come, when actors are part of a network suddenly behave differently when they realize they can move easily? In this scheme, an actor because of its mobility in the network may change its way of participating on to survival of the network. In this talk, we review the mobile ad-hoc network (MANET) where nodes in the network need to share their resources in order to have a network.

Game theory provides a rich mathematical tool to analyze conflict within strategic interactions and thereby gain a deeper understanding of resource management issues. We introduce bargaining among players as a way to keep the network at flow and the notion of an arbiter. We illustrate how the bargaining model can be utilized in motivating greedy players to be participative and also helped detect misbehaving players (colluding nodes) in a dynamic network.

Speaker(s): Dr. Wenliang Chen,


Dr. Laurent Njilla received his B.S. in Computer Science from the University of Yaoundé in Cameroon, the M.S. in Computer Engineering from the University of Central Florida (UCF) in 2005 and Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Florida International University (FIU) in 2015. He joined the Cyber Assurance Branch of the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), Rome, New York, as a Research Electronics Engineer in 2015. Prior to joining the AFRL, he was a Senior Systems Analyst in the industry sector for more than 10 years. He is responsible for conducting basic research in the areas of hardware design, game theory applied to cyber security and cyber survivability, hardware Trojan, online social network, cyber threat information sharing, and category theory. He is the Program Manager for the Cyber Security Center of Excellence (CoE) for the HBCU/MI at AFRL/RI. Dr. Njilla’s research has resulted in more than 20 peer-reviewed journal and conference papers and multiple awards including Air Force Notable Achievement Awards, the 2015 FIU World Ahead Graduate award and etc. He is a reviewer of multiple journals and serves on the technical program committees of several international conferences. He is a member of the National Society of Black Engineer (NSBE).
