Design and implementation of a monitoring framework

Kuz, Kadir
In this thesis work, the symptoms in Windows XP operating system for fault monitoring are investigated and a fault monitoring library is developed. A test GUI is implemented to examine this library. Performance tests including memory and CPU usage are done to see its overhead to the system and platform tests on the current version of Windows operating system series (Windows Vista) are done to see for compatibility. In this thesis, fault monitor-fault detector interface is also defined and implemented. To monitor a symptom that is not implemented in the monitoring library, projects can implement their own monitors. A monitoring framework is designed to control and coordinate these monitors with the main one. To create monitors for Java projects easily, a monitor creator library is developed.


Design and implementation of an open security architecture for a software-based security module
Kaynar, Kaan; Özgit, Attila; Department of Computer Engineering (2009)
Main purpose of this thesis work is to design a comprehensive and open security architecture whose desired parts could be realized on a general-purpose embedded computer without any special cryptography hardware. The architecture provides security mechanisms that implement known cryptography techniques, operations of some famous network security protocols and appropriate system security methods. Consequently, a server machine may offload a substantial part of its security processing tasks to an embedded com...
Specification and verification of confidentiality in software architectures
Ulu, Cemil; Oğuztüzün, Mehmet Halit S.; Department of Computer Engineering (2004)
This dissertation addresses the confidentiality aspect of the information security problem from the viewpoint of the software architecture. It presents a new approach to secure system design in which the desired security properties, in particular, confidentiality, of the system are proven to hold at the architectural level. The architecture description language Wright is extended so that confidentiality authorizations can be specified. An architectural description in Wright/c, the extended language, assigns...
Identifying architectural concerns from non-functional requirements using support vector machine
Gökyer, Gökhan; Şener, Cevat; Department of Computer Engineering (2008)
There has been no commonsense on how to identify problem domain concerns in architectural modeling of software systems. Even, there is no commonly accepted method for modeling the Non-Functional Requirements (NFRs) effectively associated with the architectural aspects in the solution domain. This thesis introduces the use of a Machine Learning (ML) method based on Support Vector Machines to relate NFRs to classified "architectural concerns" in an automated way. This method uses Natural Language Processing t...
Architectural design of an access control system for enterprise networks
Kirimer, Burak; Özgit, Attila (2007-11-09)
Client computers in enterprise networks have the potential to be the source of serious security problems, especially when their hardware and software components are out of physical administrative control. Besides, services in the network may have client configuration requirements. We propose a system composed of a policy management and enforcement server and client agents, which authenticates the client users and checks their computer configurations before allowing their access to services. The information ...
An approach for including business requirements to soa design
Ocaktürk, Murat; Doğru, Ali Hikmet; Department of Computer Engineering (2010)
In this thesis, a service oriented decomposition approach: Use case Driven Service Oriented Architecture (UDSOA), is introduced to close the gap between business requirements and SOA (Service Oriented Architecture) design by including business use cases and system use cases into decomposition process. The approach is constructed upon Service Oriented Software Engineering (SOSE) modeling technique and aims to fill the deficits of it at the decomposition phase. Further, it aims to involve both business vision...
