The best characteristics of DES and RSA algorithms can be combined to form a hybrid encryption algorithm to provide the desired properties […]

Homomorphic Encryption

Abstract Homomorphic encryption has been created to improve services in cloud computing. The encryption will enable organizations to use cloud computing in analyzing and mining data. Public cloud providers need the intervention of homomorphic encryption to promote security on the access of information. Researchers have suggested that this system has the ability of analyzing information […]

Over and above that, the paper lists strategic steps on how to assimilate Salesforce Backup frameworks into micro-organisations for data […]

Program Evaluation: Outcomes-Based Evaluation

Description Outcomes-based evaluation involves systematically gathering and analyzing data to assess program outcomes, benefits or changes and their effectiveness in meeting objectives. Outcome-based evaluation is ideal for short-term, intermediate term and long-term evaluations. Outcome-based evaluation measures how and whether a program has affected people’s lives. Outcome-based evaluation has certain basic components, which include inputs, activities/processes, […]

Procedural Programming Language

Programming languages are used by software developers to design applications that can be run on computers. The choice of programming language depends on various factors including the “response time requirements of the system, time restriction of the project, and budget allocated for development and maintenance support” (Reilly, 2003). Other determining factors are the requirement for […]

Quality and Rapid Application Development

Introduction Software development projects differ from development projects in other fields. The main difference lies in the relatively low or inexistent losses experienced when a software project fails to follow a rigid design process. Unlike a civil engineering project where all the design work must be completed before moving on site, software development projects are […]

ArchiMate Architecture, ArchiMate Series, and Related

Background of ArchiMate Architecture ArchiMate is a language designed to offer information technology architects, a common language for analyzing, visualizing, and describing enterprise architectures. The language had been under development since 2002, when “the Dutch Telematica Institute” in collaboration with various government organizations, enterprises, and research institutes (Peňa and Villalobos 80) founded it. Since its […]

Review of Wordfast: Strengths and Weaknesses of This Translation Memory Tool

With the recent advancements in the sphere of computer technologies and the advent of ICT translation productivity tools, translation can be regarded as not only craft, but also a rapidly growing industry. Whereas the translations are paid by the word count, the translator’s productivity is defined as the greatest number of words translated at the […]

The computer-mediated learning module

Methods of Assessment This study develops a computer mediated module in project assessment, utilizing several design techniques to enrich the learning experience. The computer-mediated learning module will be used via a handheld device or through a computer, which will represent content in linear fashion (not very different from how people read online publications). Static processes […]

Web Development

Introduction At the outset, web designing emerged as an easier and simple way of exchanging information. It was a better means of communication and had better networking benefits compared to the commercial reasons. Later on, the Web became an avenue for making profits, and the information space that was prior for providing free exchange thus […]

Ten Programming Languages

Introduction Computer programming dates back to half a millennium after the end of antiquity. Until the invention of electronic computers in the twentieth century, it was not possible to run complex high level programming languages on a machine. The discovery and meteoric development of the computer enabled the development of the modern high-level programs, which […]

Evaluating Security Software (Firewall)

Introduction A firewall is precisely a combination of specific hardware and software’s, which performs a major role in preventing all types of unauthorized users from accessing private networks. Additionally, firewalls also control the tremendous flow of all incoming and outgoing private networks traffics (Laudon & Laudon, 2009). Firewall is specifically put in a central position […]

Everest simulation report

Executive Summary The Everest simulation was a web based group exercise of a group of students with an aim of reaching the peak of Mount Everest. This simulation powerfully exemplified the concepts of the importance of attitudes, power, communication, perception and personality and group structures in influencing the dynamics in a group and the success […]

Effects of computer programming/technology on human behavior

The continued use of computers in our everyday life is beginning to alter how we as humans behave. For instance, “multitasking, output and efficiency” (Ullman 2) concepts that ideally just work for machines are slowly defining “human thought and imagination” (Ullman 2). Computers have a way of actively engaging an individual or seeking their attention […]

Ethos of Hacking

Introduction Research questions. Is hacking an internationally accepted concept? Can hacking be positive for security systems of different corporations and how? How the global community can encourage hackers to cooperate in improvement of security systems? What are the main goals of hackers when they break security systems of international corporations? What are potential threats of […]

Game designers have the responsibility to design less video game

Ethics is the field of moral philosophy involving systematic defending as well as recommendations of behavior either as wrong or right(Gunter,234). Currently, philosophers have classified ethics into several categories such as metaethics which is concern with investigating the origin of ethical principles and normative ethics which helps to regulate what is wrong or right within […]

Security requirements engineering

Security requirements can be elaborated as any procedures and devices used to in a specific system to provide protection. They can however be discussed in the context of well established implementation mechanisms such as password protection, firewalls and virus detection tools. There are a number of approaches to the study of security requirements engineering for […]

Reasons why developing software for wireless devices is challenging

Developing software for wireless devices is challenging for a number of reasons. One of the reasons arises from the fact that the various components of the wireless mobile devices are relatively small (Mahmoud, 2002, para. 7). This means that developing the software requires the developers to constraint themselves in accordance with the device. For example, […]
