Paper: Measuring the effect of AES encryption on VoWLAN QoS

ABSTRACT This paper focuses on the quality parameters of Voice over Wireless Local Area Network (VoWLAN) and how they are affected by the addition of end-to-end encryption using Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) of 128-bits and 256-bits block sizes. An experimental setup was made to evaluate mean and maximum delay and jitter, and packet loss. These… Read More »

Paper: Testing Randomness in Ciphertext of Block-Ciphers Using DieHard Tests

ABSTRACT One of the important aspects of the security of block ciphers is the randomness of the cipher text. One criterion used to evaluate the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) candidate algorithms was their demonstrated suitability as random number generators. In this paper, we introduced a new approach to interpret the results of tests of randomness.… Read More »

Paper: DES96 – Improved DES Security

ABSTRACT The Data Encryption Standard (DES) has shown noticeable signs of aging during the last two decades. In this paper we develop a system that is a DES-variant with more resistance towards the possible attacks against DES. The developed system has a sub-key generation algorithm that is completely different from the original DES. The developed… Read More »

Paper: Development of a VoIP Security System Based on H.323 Protocol

ABSTRACT In this thesis a secure IP-Telephony framework is proposed. This framework relies on H.323 and covers two of the most important weaknesses that were in the original H.323 and were not covered in an efficient and easily implementable way. These two weaknesses are secrecy of voice data traveling from one EndPoint to another, and… Read More »

Paper: Design of H.323 Secure IP-Telephony Framework

ABSTRACT The paper is aimed to provide a secure IP-Telephony system based on H.323 set of protocols. H.323 is a standard that specifies the components and procedures that provide multimedia communication services—real-time audio, video, and data communications—over packet networks, including Internet protocol (IP)–based networks. H.323 is part of a family of ITU—T recommendations called H.32x… Read More »
