  • This study aims to help address concerns about the growing demand of wider bandwidth Internet connection in the Philippines. Using articles and research of international organizations and content from official websites of the Philippine government, this paper has carefully examined the slow Internet connectivity and the high cost that the end-users pay for it. This paper suggests that this inefficiency hampers the motivation of users to innovate in a way that could contribute to inclusive growth and the development of an inclusive information society. Through a comparison of the current global ICT situation with the current situation in the Philippines, this paper shows that the country's Internet infrastructure lags behind among those of contemporary developing countries in Asia, particularly in terms of Internet connectivity. In 2015, Thailand had an average Internet speed of 7.4 Mbps, Sri Lanka 7.4, and Malaysia 4.3. Meanwhile, the Philippines had a meager average Internet speed of 2.8 Mbps, placing the country at 104 among 160 countries, with developed countries in Asia such as South Korea (23.6 Mbps) and Singapore (12.9 Mbps) ranking 1 and 12, respectively. Findings show that the lack of competition in the Internet connectivity market, among other reasons, is at the root of the dilemma of slow and costly Internet connection. Assessing the accomplishments of the Republic of Korea and other broadband-leading countries has provided practical insights and recommendations that can promote competitiveness. Furthermore, related literature argues how ISP practices may affect Internet speed and cost. This study offers an approach in improving Internet connectivity in the Philippines by bridging the gap between the Internet infrastructure market and government policies.

  • The continuous information technology and telecommunication (ICT) developments inspire several Saudi Arabia citizens to transact and interact online. However, when using online platforms, several people are likely to lose their personal information to cybercriminals. In the survey, 553 Saudi Arabia citizens and 103 information technology (IT) specialists confirm the expansion of digital economy and the need for smart cities with various services, including e-commerce and solid cyber security. 96.6% of the participants believe Saudi Arabia is digitalizing its economy; yet, 33.3% of the participants believe that residents are uninformed about living and operating in smart cities. Several people (47.29%) with medium internet speed are more aware about smart cities than those with fastest internet speed (34%). Besides, online transactions via credit cards subjected 55.5% of the participants to privacy and security issues. These findings validate the essence of cyber security awareness programs among Saudi Arabia citizens and IT professionals to boost public trust and acceptance of cybersecurity frameworks.

  • Following the increase in the supply of smartphones and the increase in the use of wireless Internet, the online shopping environment is also changing into mobile shopping. However, the domestic mobile shopping services fall short of people's expectations compared to desktop Internet shopping malls. These are mainly due to the restricted screen size and inconvenient data entry of mobile devices, the slow Internet speed, and other restrictive conditions. Accordingly, in this paper, the usability of three main domestic mobile shopping malls was evaluated using a heuristic evaluation method. The factors that must be considered when producing a mobile website, the consideration for the mobile users, and the main functions of a shopping mall, were considered to define an evaluation form. The results of the evaluation were then analyzed to propose the problems of mobile shopping malls and the directions for their improvement.

  • It was well known that how much seriously the Internet worm such as the Code Red had an effect on our daily activities. Recently the rapid growth of the Internet speed will produce more swift damage us in a short term period. In order to defend against future worm, we need to understand the propagation pattern during the lifetime of worms. In this paper, we analyze the propagation pattern of the Code Red worm by a computer simulation. In particular, we show that an existing simulation result about the number of infectious hosts does not match the observed data, and then we introduce a factor of revised human countermeasures into the simulation. We also show the simulation results presenting the importance of patching and pre-patching of the Internet worm.

  • Recently, as the internet speed is getting faster, in the cloud environment, the service receiving device is changing from a general PC to a compact device such as a mobile phone or a tablet PC. Since handheld devices such as mobile phones or tablet PCs are often used in wireless rather than wired, there are many problems that personal information may be exposed maliciously from a third party. In this paper, we propose a user privacy protection scheme through a duplicate duplicate key generation process which can safely protect user 's privacy from third party among cloud services being served through various wireless media. The proposed scheme is used to synchronize the duplicated key between the server and the intermediary device, and aims at shortening the time of the authentication process protecting the user 's privacy. In this case, the proposed scheme uses Interleave() function and random number to synchronize the server and the intermediary device, so it can safely prevent the malicious attack of the third party.

  • The purpose was to examine the association between healthy weight and physical activity, screen time, and nutrition based on community characteristics in mountainous region. The sample consisted 1,620 middle school students in West Virginia, the United States. A logistic regression and in-depth interview were conducted. Moderate to Vigorous Physical Activity and consumption of vegetables and fruits were associated with healthy weight, while screen time was not associated with healthy weight. Regional limitations may cause that students had too much exposure to screen time and should be minimized by using school facilities during weekend. In particular, schools need to provide regular health seminars and parents education to overcome regional isolation and slow internet speed. Therefore, it suggests the cooperation between schools and parents may be required in order for students to be healthy in mountainous region.

  • Recently with the explosive growth of Internet applications, the attacks of hackers on network are increasing rapidly and becoming more seriously. Thus information security is emerging as a critical factor in designing a network system and much attention is paid to Network Intrusion Detection System (NIDS), which detects hackers' attacks on network and handles them properly However, the performance of current intrusion detection system cannot catch the increasing rate of the Internet speed because most of the NIDSs are implemented by software. In this paper, we propose a new high performance network intrusion using Network Processor. To achieve fast packet processing and dynamic adaptation of intrusion patterns that are continuously added, a new high performance network intrusion detection system using Intel's network processor, IXP1200, is proposed. Unlike traditional intrusion detection engines, which have been implemented by either software or hardware so far, we design an optimized architecture and algorithms, exploiting the features of network processor. In addition, for more efficient detection engine scheduling, we proposed task allocation methods on multi-processing processors. Through implementation and performance evaluation, we show the proprieties of the proposed approach.
