Paper accepted by TSC

Our paper “Shifting to Mobile: Network-based Empirical Study of Mobile Vulnerability Market” is just accepted by IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON SERVICES COMPUTING, one of the flagship journals in service computing, software engineering. In this paper, a comprehensive empirical analysis is presented to understand the growth of the mobile vulnerability market as well as the interactions between mobile and other PCs platforms. Based on the results, we identify five issues and their recent progresses for further security improvement: security evaluation of codes or library for code reuse, methodology for data leaking protection and permission overuse identification, understanding about hunters’ behavior and strategy, involving information sharing and hiring external workforce to enhance the security capability for the organizations, as well as the cross-platform vulnerability digging approaches. The pre-printed version will be online soon.

Our paper “Accurate Identification of Ontology Alignments at Different Granularity Levels” has been accepted by IEEE Access and now it is online. Here is the link. In this paper, to address the problem “the uncertainty in ontology matching due to the decentralized characteristic of ontologies”, we propose a Four-stage Ontology Matching Framework (FOMF) to enhance ontology matching performance. It is built upon the commonly accepted claim that an external comprehensive knowledge base can be used as a semantic bridge between domain ontologies for ontology matching. First, FOMF semantically maps domain ontologies to a knowledge base and then produces different types of alignments including equivalence, subclass, sameas, and instance alignments. Similarities between two domain ontologies are next employed to enhance the equivalence and sameas alignments discovery. Finally, based on acquired alignments, inferred alignments are deduced to guarantee the completeness of matching results.

Our paper “Optimizing Semantic Annotations for Web Service Invocation” has been accepted by IEEE Transactions on Services Computing as a regular paper. In this paper, to enhance the Quality of Semantic Annotation (QoSA), we have developed a technique to incrementally assess and correct semantic annotations of web services. Aiming at supporting web service interoperation, we have formalized the QoSA of input and output parameters. Based on such formalism, test cases are automatically generated to validate service annotations. Learned semantic instances are then accumulated to iteratively validate semantic annotations of other services. Furthermore, a three-phase optimization methodology including local-feedback, global-feedback, and global-propagate is developed to improve the QoSA by incrementally correcting inaccurate annotations. Experiments over a real-world web services repository have demonstrated that our technique can effectively improve QoSA of services, gaining a 78.68% improvement in input parameters annotations and identifying 36.47% inaccurate output parameters annotations. It will be online soon.
