I am proud to announce you that RESCUEIT received two best paper awards at WSNSCM’11 workshop for the following publications:
- M. Khalfaoui, K. ELkhiyaoui, R. Molva “Privacy Preserving Products Tracking in Clustered Supply Chain“
Abstract:One of the main applications of supply chain management is product tracking. We deﬁne it as tracing the product path along the supply chain. In this paper, we propose
a solution to track the product while preserving the privacy of the supply chain actors involved and the path traced. More precisely, this solution allows to identify which path a product has taken in the supply chain, without disclosing sensitive information. To allow product tracking, the product are attached to a sensor node. This latter stores a trace of the product path along the supply chain. The trace is computed
using polynomial based signature techniques. We restrict the visibility of the manager of the supply chain by organizing the supply chain facilities into clusters. Also, we encrypt the path traces to ensure security against adversaries. To perform access control in the sensor nodes we use randomized Rabin scheme which is known for being efﬁcient and lightweight. In this paper, sensor nodes are not required to perform heavy computation, which makes our solution feasible. The main achievement of this work is a cryptographic mechanism that allows to the supply chain manager to trace the supply chain
entities that product went through, without disclosing the identity of those entities.
- L. Gomez, M. Laurent, E. El Moustaine, “Integration of RFID and Wireless Sensor Networks into a Supply Chain Management System“.
Abstract: Wireless Sensor Networks together with Radio Frequency Identification are promising technologies for supply chain management systems. They both provide supply chain players with goods tracking and monitoring functions along the chain. Whereas RFIDs are rather focusing on identification of goods (e.g., identification, classification), WSNs are meant to monitor and control the supply chain environment. Nevertheless, despite the interest for the supply chain management systems, their integration is often deterred due to the lack of interoperability. In this paper, we propose a software framework which makes easier the integration of both RFIDs and WSNs into supply chain management systems.
In addition, the paper has been invited to the “Sensors and Transducers” and IARA journal.
Those publications are available upon request.
