Abbas Y. Al-Bayati; Runak M. Abdullah

AL-Rafidain Journal of Computer Sciences and Mathematics, Volume 8, Issue 2, Pages 35-41
DOI: 10.33899/csmj.2011.163639

In this paper a new class of Quasi-Newton update for solving unconstrained nonlinear optimization problem is proposed. In this work we suggested a new formula for the variable metric update with  a new quasi-Newton condition used for the symmetric rank two formula.
Finally, a numerical study is reported in which the performance of this new algorithm is compared to that of various members of the unmodified family. Numerical experiments indicate that this new algorithm is effective and superior to the standard BFGS and DFP algorithms, with respect to the number of functions evaluations (NOF) and number of iterations (NOI).

DOI: 10.33899/csmj.2011.163648

This research is dedicated for analyzing the stability of a system of flow equations for soap film that has opposed for disturbance, and this analysis was done by using Galerkin method which enable to find disturbance growth from its nonexistence after making the system linearization. It was shown through the results of analysis that these equations were in stable state when the real part of wave velocity (a)  is a negative quantity, and it is  unstable state when the real part of this velocity is a positive quantity, i.e. a < 0 we get stability and this happens when the distance (do) and the source (uo) in two similar signs and when a > 0 we get unstable state and this happens when do , uo  have two different  signs.

The covert channels of type covert storage channels were used in this research to hide textual data or an (image hiding secrete data) in the transmission protocol layer and the internet protocol layer of TCP/IP module. We use IP protocol in designing covert channel by using Identification field, and use TCP protocol in designing covert channel by using Urgent Pointer  field, and UDP by using Source Port field. Finally ICMP protocol by using Echo request message and Message field.
 The result of Covert channel after analyzing the protocols (IP, TCP, UDP, ICMP) header depends on the field that used in the designing the Covert channel. The access ratio of hidden data in the two protocols TCP/IP was %100. UDP protocol on the other hand depends on a mechanism of unsafe communication. ICMP protocol provided a good transmission, though unreliable, in that the message structure can be unreliable or clear.

Classical encryption methods depend on two basic encryption method, namely MONO ALPHABET and POLY ALPHABET.
            In this research, we developed a hybrid encryption algorithm to overcome the weaknesses in both methods and  employed  the basic methods  of themselves. The output  ciphertext is characterized  with the high security  when it does not give the expected results using the basics to break the code, namely, (adoptig the frequencies of the language used i.e. Frequency Analysis, besides Coincidence and Kasiski test).
            The problem of  distributing the secret key has been also overcome by adopting a new technique to  hide the  key inside the encrypted text in a nearly proposed way. Experimental result has been demonstrated that it is difficult to determine  the used encryption method ,in this algorithm we used MATLAB.

With science developing and techniques used in Information hiding, there are another techniques wall together for Steganalysis.
Steganography is considered as the new and the complementary system of Cryptography that took a long time in transferring secret and important messages through the networks Internet. Then there was the emergence of what complements Steganography as a science that analysis and discover the content of the secret messages and this science is Steganalysis.
This study tackled and manifested the ideas of analysis processes that can be followed to interpret the secret messages and discovering them either by means of knowing about their existence only or the capability of extracting them in full.
The work relied on two important technologies; the first is called the Support Vector Machine (SVM) and the second is called Fisher Linear Discriminator (FLD). The SVM technology has been used with the blind application idea while FLD has been used with the blind and non-blind application ideas using colored images which are PNG and BMP.
Results proved the high efficiency of the two technologies in detecting the image that includes the secret messages and comparisons were varied between the two technologies in terms of detection rate, fault and the execution time.

CASE Tools play a significant role in the field of software engineering development processes where they are utilized in system modeling and analysis, in system design and in generating automatic software codes based on system design models.
In this research the (ERToOracle10g) tool has been designed and implemented as a CASE Tool. Hence it is used to construct a data modeling using ER Model, then transforming the graphical model to (Oracle 10g) SQL instructions and executing it automatically inside an (Oracle 10g) server. XML has been used  to transform graphical ER model to SQL instructions. The graphical ER model includes symbols and shapes that are difficult to analyze or to directly generate SQL instructions. The graphical model is transformed to descriptive text using XML which is easy to analyze and transform to SQL instructions.
