The certificate based digital signature technology overcomes the key escrow problem in identity based digital signature technology and the secret key transmission problem in the digital signature technology. The aggregate signature schemes combine a great deal of signatures signed by different signers on different messages into one short signature. However, the more the number of signer and bilinear pairing operations, the lower the efficiency of the aggregate signature scheme. In this paper, we present a scheme of certificate based aggregate signature without bilinear pairings, assuming the hardness of Computational Diffie-Hellman Problem. We then prove the security of the proposed scheme in the random oracle model. © 2016.

We report on the electromagnetic (EM) properties in high-frequency domain (HF) of multiferroic Bi2FeCrO6 (BFCO) thin films. The films were epitaxially grown on SrTiO3 substrates by pulsed laser ablation. Typical 50 nm-thick BFCO films having both (111) and (001) orientations were investigated. The films exhibit systematically deep EM absorbance narrow bands, localized in the HF X-band domain, with an attenuation reaching as high as-24 dB. The magnitude and the shape of EM absorption depend on the crystal orientation of the film. BFCO thin films show a promising potential for microwave application as specific frequency bands notch filters. © 2011 American Institute of Physics.

Solar energy is under push to reach "grid parity" without additional subsidies and favorable policies. While cost and reliability are major concerns for both photovoltaic (PV) panels and PV inverters, comparable or exceeded grid functions and power quality can further help solar power become competitive to conventional generation technologies in the wholesale electricity market. This paper gives an overview of future development trends of PV inverters and proposes new requirements for next generation PV inverters under smart grid and/or microgrid environments. Approaches to address these requirements are also discussed from the research methodology perspectives. The goal of this paper is to draw the interests of the industry and academia in the new technical challenges of next generation smart PV inverters in addition to the "dollar per watt" overall PV system cost target. © 2011 IEEE.

Smart Applications Are the Future of Communication SmartIS City Ltd. has launched its Smart Voice application. Municipalities, citizens, and companies can now use it in their everyday business and private life. The application allows the exchange of ideas, problems report, communication with local businesses, etc. Clients are warmly invited to test this solution in their environment. Ljubljana, Slovenia, December 15, 2016 --( An important part of smart cities today is the Internet of Things (IOT), through which billions of things will be connected to the Internet over the next few years. These "things" can be anything, such as buildings, water supply, street lights ... IoT brings increased level of automation and cost savings for cities all around the world. Smart devices enable people to stay connected to the Internet 24/7, which is why the use of Internet is rising sharply every year. How many people keep track of how much time per day they spend in front of electronic devices connected to the Internet and Web browsers? According to the research from early 2013, the average European Internet user devotes 27 hours monthly to Internet browsing. But despite all the tools dedicated to work and education, the internet is still mainly used for entertainment, reading the news and small ads, shopping, movies, and music. What if a part of the time that they spend on the Internet for entertainment was devoted to improving the quality of the living environment in their town and municipality? For example, if instead of browsing through social networks, they could browse among the development projects of their city and news from their municipality, and instead of "liking" Facebook posts and commenting on them, they could “like” the content of the planned development projects of their city or municipality? Instead of sharing ideas on the city development only with a neighbor over coffee, people could propose a project or an easy, quick, or even better solution for the planned project site to the city administration. How would people that live in the city feel if they could promote the local economy, connect with local businesses, and with that create two-way communication? It sounds simple and easy. And so it is with application Smart Voice, which allows all of the above in a simple way. According to a survey by the European Commission, the greatest obstacle of effective e-government services lies particularly in their complexity and opacity, which often prevents people from using them. Human population has to be prepared for the major technological changes that are unavoidable and, firstly, has to understand them. Using technology to participate in the city management procedures brings many benefits: lower costs, greater flexibility, and simplified administrative procedures. Cities should be aware that adequately informed residents who wish to participate in decision-making, are the significant added value of the city. Such residents contribute new and innovative ideas and report problems. A city that knows the wishes of its people, can make better decisions and more effectively allocate investment funds and carry out relevant projects. Therefore, investing in the process of building and strengthening mutual confidence and investing in appropriate technology tools should not be seen as a cost but as an investment in a better future. Many smart ideas on how to improve communication with the general population with the help of smart technologies already exists. Many tools were approved by both sides involved, but it is the most important that one and the other begin to use them. Many agree that the idea of smart cities is certainly important and it is not just a trend in an era when younger generations are replacing traditional media with smartphones. However in introducing the system and construction of "smart cities" the world is unfortunately still at the beginning. Technology is advancing rapidly and smart cities with the adequate support system can be "build" soon, people just need to change the perspective from observation into action. Therefore the real challenge of smart cities really lies in acceptance of smart lifestyle/smart city and a new perspective on communication.
