Abstract: New mathematical software tools in "IDStS" are developed for differential stochastic systems (DStS) with Wiener and Poisson noises with complex finite, differential, and integral nonlinearities and hereditary StS (HStS) reducible to DStS. Algorithms of analytical modeling based on the normal approximation method (NAM) and the statistical linearization method (SLM) are given. Numeral and symbolic algorithms for NAM (SLM) are developed in MATLAB for typical nonlinearities in DStS. Test examples are given. Special attention is paid to the problems of analytical modeling in HStS with complex nonlinearities based on NAM and SLM.

Abstract: Distributed components of an enterprise information system (IS) interact among themselves through a network, providing information about production activity of an enterprise or an organization. There is a class of vulnerabilities creating threats to correct and safe execution of the functions of IS. Often, hackers look for vulnerabilities using a malicious code which independently extends between hosts of IS while getting to the least protected
nodes. Let V be the set of components of the distributed IS and E be the set of possible interactions between components, then G = (V, E) is the architecture of the distributed IS. The following decomposition of architecture of the distributed IS is considered as a hierarchy of architecture of classes of components. The architecture of the network of the distributed IS represents the bottom level of decomposition. The following levels of hierarchy are the architecture of applications and the architecture of information technologies. The top level of hierarchy is the architecture of the distributed IS. Architectural threats are the transit through hosts of the malicious code and information leakage through information technologies. Secure architecture is such architecture which within available means reduces risks of implementation of architectural threats. The architecture of IS is secured if there are no direct interactions between high- risky and high-valuable components. Necessary and sufficient conditions of existence of secure architecture of a distributed IS are found. It is defined under what condition it is possible to insert new tasks or information technologies to a distributed IS or to make other changes safely.
Keywords: information security of a distributed system; virtual system; risks; valuable information resources; architecture of a distributed information system
COVERT CHANNELS ON THE WIRELESS NETWORKS OF THE STANDARD 802.11
Abstract: The paper studies the possibility of building a covert channel using the header of the 802.11 standard frame and some features of functioning of wireless networks based on these standards. To construct a covert channel, the principles of a wireless network, the connection and disconnection processes of wireless clients, and the structure of the network frame have to be described. To confirm the possibility of using the header of the network frame and the mechanism of deauthentification of a wireless client for covert communication, the paper describes the layout, which includes the necessary hardware and software, and experiments. The experimental results confirm the possibility of building covert channels in 802.11 wireless networks. Authors propose a way of using covert channels described in the article as well as the methods of eliminating them.

Abstract: The paper presents approaches to designing self-timed (ST) equipment and analyzes conditions of in-system integration of synchronous and ST units in a supercomputer network taking the ST Fused Multiply-Add (FMA) unit as an example. Self-timed FMA complies with the IEEE 754 Standard and performs either one double precision FMA operation or one or two single precision operations simultaneously under three operands. It utilizes the ST-ternary encoding and the 65-nanometer CMOS (complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor) technology as the implementation basis. Depending on realization, it works with asynchronous or synchronous environment and provides not less than 1 GFlops performance with latency not more than 6 ns with respect to input data arrival.

Abstract: Paper presents the results of designing Speed-Independed Fused Multiply-Add (SIFMA) variants compliant with the IEEE 754 Standard. SIFMA performs either one double precision FMA operation or one or two single precision operations simultaneously under three operands. SIFMA was designed for the standard 65-nanometer CMOS (complementary metall-oxide- semiconductor) technology. It uses both a standard cell library and a self-timed cell library designed in IPI RAS. One SIFMA variant operates with a synchronous environment, while another works with an asynchronous environment.
Both variants provide an average performance up to 1 GFlops for 1 -volt supply and environment temperature of 25 °C. At these conditions, energy consumption does not exceed 970 mJ/GHz.

TWO-PARAMETRIC ANALYSIS OF MAGNETIC-RESONANCE IMAGES BY THE MAXIMUM LIKELIHOOD TECHNIQUE IN COMPARISON WITH THE ONE-PARAMETRIC APPROXIMATION
- T. V. Yakovleva
- N. S. Kulberg
Abstract: The paper considers a method of the two-parametric analysis of magnetic-resonance image's data which allows getting a joint estimation of both the useful signal and the noise within the image being analyzed on the basis of the maximum likelihood principle. This technique presents an essentially new approach to data processing in the conditions of the Rice distribution and can be efficiently used in information technologies for solving a wide range of tasks connected with the Rician signals' filtering. Solving the two-parametric task is based on measured samples' data only and is not connected with a priori suppositions concerning the noise value which inevitably limit the precision of the one-parametric method. By means of computer simulation, a comparative analysis of the traditional one-parametric method and the elaborated two- parametric method is made for estimation of the useful component of the signal forming the magnetic-resonance image. The statistical data for the shift and the spread of the sought-for signal and noise parameters are calculated. The advantages of the two-parametric technique of data analysis are shown.

PROPERTIES OF WINDOW DISPERSION OF MYOGRAM AS A STOCHASTIC PROCESS
Abstract: Nowadays, the research of brain activity is conducted by many scientists. One of the approaches is the method of caused potentials: the testee repeats some actions, his brain activity and some additional signals are registered and then are analysed in order to detect necessary dependences. A number of works of the author and his collegues consider algorithms of localization of reference points in a myogram (and some other signals) corresponding to the movement beginnings in the experiment in which a person makes movements by a hand finger. Accuracy of localization of these points is critical for further processing of magnetoencephalogram. The paper covers some theoretical aspects of these algorithms such as models of a myogram and its window dispersion as stochastic processes.

ON LOGISTICS OF MOBILE ELECTRONIC TEXTBOOKS IMPLEMENTATION AND USE
- D. A. Bogdanova
- A. A. Fedoseev
Abstract: Taking into consideration the current situation of supply of broadband access in the schools in Russia, based on reviews in international and national publications regarding introduction of electronic textbooks, the authors identify a number of issues inherent to this process, inhibiting its successful implemen-tation and needing a proper resolution. The authors introduce the concept of ideal availability of an electronic textbook, based on which the authors suggest a number of ways of distribution of electronic textbooks. The authors introduce the notion of lifecycle of an electronic textbook, which helps to identify the pro-cesses of modernization and of creation of new textbooks. The authors also clarify the meaning of the notion of mobility of an electronic textbook. As a result, the authors managed to coin a prototype of an electronic textbook, which, when realized, allows minimizing its dependence on availability of broadband access. Therefore, this solution differs from its analogues both in Russia and globally.
