1 Mrs.Jayashree A Patil Prof.S.M.Bhagat On Demand Load Balancing and Distribution Routing Protocol in Mobile Adhoc Networks Mobile ad hoc network (MANET) is a resource constrained randomly deployed network, in which almost all the nodes are battery constrained. Data communication in such a network is possible along multiple hops, nodes that are in communication range of each other nodes to relay the packets. Generally, wireless ad hoc networks are deployed in emergent and can communicate directly, while the nodes that are spatially disjoint uses other intermediate temporary situations such as accidents or public gatherings. In Mobile ad hoc networks are routing protocols are vital for the proper functioning of ad hoc networks. In the present routing protocols, data is transmitted after choosing shortest path without any consideration of any particular node's traffic which raises the problem of delay of transmission and unbalanced energy consumption. We propose new routing metric which selects the lightest loaded path with the largest residual energy for data routing all of the time, thus improve the packet delivery rate and lower the average delay. A comprehensive simulation study has to be conducted to evaluate the performance of the proposed scheme. BCUD-RPS UOP 50000 2014-2016 2 Yeass Ongoing
2 Mrs.Pranali P Chaudhari Mr.Amit S Sonawane Optimization of Hadoop Map Reduce on Clouds Data Analytics is becoming increasingly prominent in a variety of application areas ranging from extracting business intelligence to processing scientific data. Also the peoples are more interested in performing their data analytics tasks in the cloud environment due to the heavy resources and cost required for the analysis. Map Reduce framework has proved to be an effective solution to such data intensive analytics jobs due to its parallel processing capability. As cloud platform is based on pay-as-you-go model, end user has to pay for all resources involved in execution even though resource are not fully utilized. If Map reduce application is not well organized then it might affect the overall execution cost.  In this proposal we are going to provide an optimized solution for organizing the map reduce in such way that end users has to pay minimum cost while obtaining the best performance.

3 Mr.Amit S Sonawane Mrs.Pranali P Chaudhari StegFS: A File System that withstand against Plausible deniability Attack
 Users of some systems are at risk of being compelled to disclose their keys or other private data, and this risk could be mitigated if access control mechanisms supported an element of plausible deniability. However, existing plausible deniability mechanisms, such as the one-time pad, are of rather limited scope. The steganographic file system is a storage mechanism designed to give the user a very high level of protection against being compelled to disclose its contents. It will deliver a file to any user who knows its name and password; but an attacker who does not possess this information and cannot guess it, can gain no information about whether the file is present, even given complete access to all the hardware and software.

1 Prof.S.M.Bhagat Mrs.Jayashree A Patil Development of VANET Routing Protocol for ITS Vehicular Ad-hoc Network (VANET) is a network of vehicles (wireless mobile nodes) which is formed when vehicles came in to range. In VANET, topology is not fixed, it changes periodically. Since there is a change in the topology due to high speed of vehicles, unpredictable behavior of driver, hidden node problems, VANET becomes the interesting domain for the researchers to provide safety to general public on road.The work throws light on study and analysis of routing protocols AODV and New routing algorithm in V2I for various parameters like packet delivery ratio, throughput, end to end delay, Data packet loss and Energy consumption. Simulation for highway scenario was performed for 12 vehicles and 4 base stations with variable velocity in QualNet Simulator and WiMAX (8012.16) was used for the VANET infrastructure.

3 Mr.Amit S Sonawane Mrs.Asha P Choudhary A file System that Securely Hides Data and its Retreival using Reversible Data Embedding Techniques The advances of the internet and World Wide Web have brought a great innovation to data management technologies. Data is no longer stored locally and processed centrally. On the contrary, data is shared in various forms over the internet. It is distributed among remote storages and processed by remote processors. Thus, researchers begin to explore new methods to manage the huge amount of data shared over the internet, in order to use them more efficiently and safely. Security is increasingly recognized as a key impediment of the emerging data management technologies, especially when data is shared over the internet and thus exposed to higher risks. Many research projects are in progress addressing various problems on data security, such as remote data access control, copyright protection, privacy protection and trust management.  BCUD-RPS UOP NA NA 2 Years Submitted
