      We propose a new approach that practically and effectively detects IP prefix hijacking based on network reachability. The proposed method use a fingerprinting scheme in order to determine the network reachability of a specific network. We focus on fingerprinting two ASes with the same IP prefix in order to distinguish IP prefix hijacking events from legitimate routing updates.

    2. A cognitive accountability mechanism for penalizing misbehaving ECN-based TCP stacks (pages 16–40)

      This article presents an accountability mechanism that detects and penalizes misbehaving ECN based TCP stacks, which ignore congestion warnings. To detect misbehaving connections, a cognitive algorithm is presented that combines machine learning algorithms to classify connections into misbehaving and well-behaving profiles. The performance of the cognitive accountability mechanism has been characterised both in terms of the accuracy of the detection algorithm and the impact of the mechanism on the network fairness.

      This paper proposes a framework for providing a systematic view of how to manage and deploy network-wide Quality of Service (QoS) across Wireless Mesh Networks. Our proposed solution considers network-planning aspects, including node placement, node clustering and frequency assignments, route discovery between ingress-egress nodes and appropriate QoS provisioning across the network. Route level QoS provisioning was designed as the process of allocating resources to nodes along the identified routes to meet a-priori known aggregated traffic demands for specified QoS classes.

    4. Heterogeneous uncoordinated deployment of WLANs: an evolving problem for current and future Wi-Fi access (pages 66–79)

      Development of protocols and policies for managing WLANs in Heterogeneous deployments is crucial. Coordinated operation has been found to boost the performance of WLANs in such deployments.
