In this paper a novel soft computing assisted cryptographic technique, based on synchronization of Grouped Triple Hidden Layer Perceptron (GTHLP), has been proposed. The most important hazard of cryptography is how to firmly swap over the shared secrets between the parties. As a result, key exchange protocols are mandatory for transferring keys in a protected manner. As the same time as key exchange protocols are developed for exchanging key between two parties, many applications do necessitate the need of swapping over a secret key among group of parties. In existing technique each communicating party has to synchronize with other. So, if there are n parties then total number of synchronizations needed is O(n2). This is quite computationally complicated especially in wireless communication where the computational power and the resource constrain is a major issue. GTHLP technique of this paper eliminates all the above stated drawbacks of the existing technique. GTHLP introduces Grouped Triple Hidden Layer Perceptron (GTHLP) synchronization mechanism for offering synchronization of group of parties. Here a key swap over by synchronization among cluster of THLP has been proposed which is a fresh addition to the field of cryptography. The proposed technique implements the key swap over technique with the help of complete binary tree framework which makes the technique scales logarithmically with the number of parties participating in the key swap over protocol. Two parties can swap over a common key using synchronization between their own CTHLP. But the problem crop up when group of n parties desire to swap over a key. Using proposed technique a set of n parties can be able to share a common key with only O(log2 n) synchronization steps. This is logarithmic complexity and feasible in wireless communication with limited amount of resources. Here, CGTHLP based synchronization is performed for tuning of group of parities by placing on the complete binary tree framework. Synchronization initiated between nodei and nodej to construct a common seed value at both sides. The synchronized identical seed value is used to generate the common input vector for nodei and nodej. Two GTHLPs one at nodei and another at nodej start with identical input vector and anonymous random weight vector. In each time both THLPs compute their final output based on input and weight vector, and communicate to each other. If both are be in agreement on the mapping between the present input and the output, their weights are updated according to an appropriate learning rule. After synchronization procedure of all parties (nodes in a complete binary tree) in the group weight vector of the group THLPs become identical. These indistinguishable weight vector forms the session key for a particular session. Authentication steps also get performed parallel to the synchronization steps. This synchronized network can be used for transmitting message using any light weight encryption/decryption technique with the help of session key of the synchronized network.

Researcher and engineers always want faster and faster computing devices, and in general faster devices require more energy. With increasing energy costs, there is an urgent need for energy-efficient computing in Wireless ad hoc and sensor networks at many different levels. This talk focuses on energy-aware resource management in heterogeneous centralized, parallel and distributed computing systems. We address the problem by approximation, generating efficient minimum Connected Dominating Set in wireless ad-hoc networks. The execution time and energy consumption of each node is based on how the task’s computational requirements interact with the node’s capabilities. We have designed models for defining, deriving, and quantifying the degree of robustness of a node behavior using stochastic (probabilistic) information about the execution times of tasks on different nodes. We provide an analysis framework that will allow a system to investigate the tradeoffs between minimum and maximum dominating set and maximizing the computing performance (utility) achieved by a system. The CDS approaches presented can be applied to a variety of computing and communication system environments, including centralized, parallel, distributed, cluster, wireless ad hoc and sensor networks. Furthermore, the approaches can be used with many different system performance metrics and constraints. This talk is intended for undergraduate, postgraduate students, research scholar, faculty and scientists who want to learn how to model and manage resources in parallel and distributed computing systems with energy-aware. In particular, energy can be used as a constraint when trying to optimize a system computing performance metric, or energy can be optimized while meeting a computing performance constraint goal.
