Study of Implementing Available Security Controls of Wireless Computer Networks

This article will present an analysis of security levels of wireless home networks based on IEEE 802.11 standard. The analysis of security implementation will be done on the basis of activated security checks available to end users in order to protect their own wireless system to the full. The analysis will encompass average users as regards to their knowledge of network communication systems and implemented security checks. The end result, i.e. a realistic picture of the way end users think about wireless computer network security, which in turn will have an impact on science and society in general, will enhance the awareness of possible ways wireless networks can be abused.

Guidelines for Developing e-Learning System for Visually Impaired

According to the last “People with Disabilities Report” (cro. Izvješće o osobama s invaliditetom) in Republic of Croatia lives 529 103 persons with disability which is more than 10 % of total population. There is 18 317 persons with impaired vision (blind and visually impaired). Compared to previous years this number has increased by 2044 people. According to estimates 10%, with a tendency to increase, of blind people is using the Internet. Estimates are based on documents and reports that are currently derived from the project “Communication Rod to Independence” (cro. Komunikacijskom štapom do neovisnosti). This paper will discuss described definitions and standards that will be im-plemented in learning management system (LMS) as a module for visually im-paired. LMS developed at the Faculty of Transport and Traffic Sciences has been in use since 2004. System is composed of five modules: Document Management System (DMS), The Authorization and Supervision System (cro. Sustav Autorizacije i Nadzora; SAN), students module e-Student, SMS module SMSCentar and mobile learning module FPZMobile.

Reminder Based on the User’s Location

The sense of technology and its future development has been primarily led by the idea of finding ways in which to make life for people easier. Simplicity, practicality and functionality represent characteristics of good products. Mobile information and communication technology determines the society and behaviours since it represents an element of individual quality and a way of communicating and doing business. The potential provided by hardware can be fully used only by adapting to the users’ requirements by improving the software side. Today’s development of the information and communication technology has to be created with the focus on the humans and with technology transparent for the user.
Regarding the mobile information and communication technology, the problem has traditionally been that the mobile applications focused too much on the technology, which means that applications had been developed for certain purposes or for special technologies. The new standpoint has been led by the idea that the application has to provide the users with what they want, anywhere they want it and in the best possible way. The user has to be able to employ the mobile device and software based on the installed applications in different environments and independent of the environment.
Developing an application that may make everyday life easier is a sufficient motive to turn an idea into reality. The topical feature of the application development technology for mobile devices called for an idea that would take into consideration the users’ requirements and satisfy them by providing a simple solution for their everyday life. This idea is a reminder based on the user’s location.

XaaS Services as Modern Infrastructure of e-Goverment in the Republic of Croatia

The paper gives an overview of the impact of significant changes within the ICT sector and the ability to deploy new services in the e-business. The emphasis of research on the analysis of features, and effects of new innovative services ICSP’s in Croatia, based on XaaS paradigm, the function of implementing the necessary e-communications infrastructure and services for good governance, development and competitiveness of the Republic of Croatia.

Conceptual Model of Developing a New LMS System of the Faculty of Transport and Traffic Sciences

The e-Learning system of the Faculty of Transport and Traffic Sciences has been continuously developed since 2004 for the study requirements according to the German study concept of the Fachhochschule and according to the specific study characteristics in the Republic of Croatia, using a modular approach. Currently there are five modules functioning (DMS, SAN, e-Student, SMSCentar and FPZmobile) which together form the Learning Management System (LMS) of the Faculty of Transport and Traffic Sciences.
DMS (Document Management System) is a system for managing documents and processes which is used for authorized access by the Faculty staff members to modules: control of work of the computer laboratories (check of access to exercises, etc.), e-Learning system administration (publishing of teaching materials, control and grading of seminar papers, etc.) and the module for documents and processes management within the Faculty (orders for equipment, report on failures, updated on-line directory, etc.)
SAN (cro. Sustav autorizacije i nadzora, eng. The authorization and control system) is a set of applications which applies the advanced IT technologies to allow supervising the work of students on the computers at the computer laboratories of the Faculty of Transport and Traffic Sciences and personalization of the working environment in the Windows operation system, regardless of which computer is being used by the student.

EMERGING 2010: The Second International Conference on Emerging Network Intelligence

Next-generation large distributed networks and systems require substantial reconsideration of exiting ‘de facto’ approaches and mechanisms to sustain an increasing demand on speed, scale, bandwidth, topology and flow changes, user complex behavior, security threats, and service and user ubiquity. As a result, growing research and industrial forces are focusing on new approaches for advanced communications considering new devices and protocols, advanced discovery mechanisms, and programmability techniques to express, measure and control the service quality, security, environmental and user requirements.

The event EMERGING 2010, The Second International Conference on Emerging Network Intelligence, constitutes a stage to present and evaluate the advances in emerging solutions for next-generation architectures, devices, and communications protocols. Particular focus is aimed at optimization, quality, discovery, protection, and user profile requirements supported by special approaches such as network coding, configurable protocols, context-aware optimization, ambient systems, anomaly discovery, and adaptive mechanisms.

Application Development for Geo-Referenced Audio Video Recording of the Traffic System Using Mobile Phones

The paper analyzes the development feasibility and the possibilities of using the application for mobile terminal devices with the aim of generating geo-referenced audio-video recordings of the traffic network. The application has been developed at the Faculty of Transport and Traffic Sciences in Zagreb, in J2ME environment. The application is meant to create a geo-referenced audio-video recording of the traffic network, and can therefore be efficiently applied by all who are involved in activities regarding the general condition of roads, road signage, road environment, in short, by anyone who may benefit from the geo-referenced audio-video recording of the traffic network in order to operate more efficiently.

Microsoft Open Days 2009: How it was

The Microsoft Open Days 2009 at Faculty of Transport and Traffic Sciences were held at 24th of November 2009. With auditorium crowded with students some might say it went really well :) Students could attend lectures thought out the entire day and in between lectures students could sense a part of the history with first Pocket PC […]
