Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In the era of the Internet of Things (IoT) and big data, widespread applications of various intelligent terminals and wearable sensing devices promote many novel information transmission approaches and information service modes. Currently, 5G-enabled derivatives, such as smart city, smart transportation, connected healthcare and smart energy, are developing rapidly. While it provides enhanced convenience to peoples’ lives, it also faces severe security and privacy challenges. Various data-driven intelligent applications should be combined with diversified privacy protection technologies, attach importance to personal and organizational identity and data privacy protection, and strive to build a secure ecological environment for the whole lifecycle of information flow.

This Special Issue organizes the latest intelligent data processing strategies, trust management, privacy protection techniques, and attack and defense methods for IoT, Blockchain and 5G ubiquitous networks. Technical contribution papers, industrial case studies and review papers are welcome. The proposed topics include (but are not limited to):

  • Intelligent data processing, algorithm, and model;
  • Security, trust and privacy in IoT, big data and 5G networks;
  • Multimedia networking, communication and security;
  • Data fusion of heterogeneous sensor data and multi-mode data;

Accurately and efficiently predicting elephant flows (elephants) is crucial for optimizing network performance and resource utilization. Current prediction approaches for software-defined networks (SDNs) typically rely on complete traffic and statistics moving from switches to controllers. This leads to an extra control channel bandwidth occupation and network delay. To address this issue, this paper proposes a prediction strategy based on incomplete traffic that is sampled by the timeouts for the installation or reactivation of flow entries. The strategy involves assigning a very short hard timeout (Tinitial) to flow entries and then increasing it at a rate of r until flows are identified as elephants or out of their lifespans. Predicted elephants are switched to an idle timeout of 5 s. Logistic regression is used to model elephants based on a complete dataset. Bayesian optimization is then used to tune the trained model Tinitial and r over the incomplete dataset. The process of feature selection, model learning, and optimization is explained. An extensive evaluation shows that the proposed approach can achieve over 90% generalization accuracy over 7 different datasets, including campus, backbone, and the Internet of Things (IoT). Elephants can be correctly predicted for about half of their lifetime. The proposed approach can significantly reduce the controller–switch interaction in campus and IoT networks, although packet completion approaches may need to be applied in networks with a short mean packet inter-arrival time.
