About this Textbook

This textbook introduces new business concepts on cloud environments such as secure, scalable anonymity and practical payment protocols for the Internet of things and Blockchain technology. The protocol uses electronic cash for payment transactions. In this new protocol, from the viewpoint of banks, consumers can improve anonymity if they are worried about disclosure of their identities in the cloud. Currently, there is not a book available that has reported the techniques covering the protocols with anonymizations and Blockchain technology. Thus this will be a useful book for universities to purchase. 

This textbook provides new direction for access control management and online business, with new challenges within Blockchain technology that may arise in cloud environments. One is related to the authorization granting process. For example, when a role is granted to a user, this role may conflict with other roles of the user or together with this role; the user may have or derive a high level of authority. Another is related to authorization revocation. For instance, when a role is revoked from a user, the user may still have the role. Experts will get benefits from these challenges through the developed methodology for authorization granting algorithm, and weak revocation and strong revocation algorithms.

Yanchun Zhang

 

Yanchun Zhang is a Professor of Computer Science at Victoria University, Australia. Dr. Zhang obtained a PhD degree in Computer Science from The University of Queensland in 1991. His research interests include databases, data mining, web services and e-health. He has published over 300 research papers in international journals and conference proceedings including ACM Transactions on Computer and Human Interaction (TOCHI), IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering (TKDE), VLDBJ, SIGMOD and ICDE conferences, and a dozen of books and journal special issues in the related areas.  Dr. Zhang is a founding editor and editor-in-chief of World Wide Web Journal (Springer) and Health Information Science and Systems Journal (Springer), and also the founding editor of Web Information Systems Engineering Book Series and Health Information Science Book Series. He is Chairman of International Web information Systems Engineering Society (WISE).

 

His research has been supported by various competitive funding, including 7 prestigious ARC Discovery and ARC Linkage Projects. In addition to high quality research output/publications (in Pattern Recognition, IEEE TKDE, Information Systems, JCSS, etc), Prof Zhang has made strong impact through his leadership in applied research and collaborations with government and industry organizations such as World Health Organization and Tasmanian Department of Health and Human Services, Australian e-Health Research Centre. Their multidisciplinary research into e-health in collaboration with World Health Organization and Tasmanian Department of Health and Human Services have produced software systems and mapping tools to help the government/industry organizations establish health needs, allowing it to base policy on firm evidence. Representative work on gait classification in children with cerebral palsy is published in Pattern Recognition (2009, ERA A*). Recent collaborations with World Health Organisation (WHO) and Tasmania Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) have produced several software systems adopted by WHO and Tasmania DHHS.
