Authentication and integrity in outsourced databases
Einar Mykletun, Maithili Narasimha, Gene Tsudik
Pages: 107-138
DOI: 10.1145/1149976.1149977
In the Outsourced Database (ODB) model, entities outsource their data management needs to a third-party service provider. Such a service provider offers mechanisms for its clients to create, store, update, and access (query) their databases. This...

Using MEMS-based storage in computer systems---device modeling and management
Scott A. Brandt, Bo Hong, Darrell D. E. Long, Ying Lin, Ethan L. Miller
Pages: 139-160
DOI: 10.1145/1149976.1149978
MEMS-based storage is an emerging nonvolatile secondary storage technology. It promises high performance, high storage density, and low power consumption. With fundamentally different architectural designs from magnetic disk, MEMS-based storage...

On incremental file system development
Gopalan Sivathanu, Nikolai Joukov, Charles P. Wright, Erez Zadok, Rakesh Iyer
Pages: 161-196
DOI: 10.1145/1149976.1149979
Developing file systems from scratch is difficult and error prone. Using layered, or stackable, file systems is a powerful technique to incrementally extend the functionality of existing file systems on commodity OSes at runtime. In this article, we...

Spin MOSFETs as a basis for spintronics
Satoshi Sugahara, Masaaki Tanaka
Pages: 197-219
DOI: 10.1145/1149976.1149980
This article reviews a recently proposed new class of spin transistors referred to as spin metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistors (spin MOSFETs), and their integrated circuit applications. The fundamental device structures, operating...
