Indian Foreign and Security Policy in South Asia: Regional Power Strategies

This booklet examines Indian international coverage and defense family members in its japanese local neighbourhood.

Indian international and protection coverage in South Asia conducts an in-depth research into India’s international coverage in the direction of the 3 major nations in India’s jap neighbourhood – Sri Lanka, Nepal, and Bangladesh. particularly, it offers with India’s position within the ultimate years of the civil battle in Sri Lanka, its method of the peace and democratisation technique in Nepal, and Indian overseas coverage in the direction of Bangladesh on more than a few matters together with Islamist militancy, migration, border safeguard, and insurgency.

MPEG-7: Formally named ‘‘Multimedia Content Description Interface,’’ the MPEG-7 standard provides a set of standardized tools to describe multimedia content. The main elements of the standard are description tools (Descriptors [D] and Description Schemes [DS]), a Description Definition Language (DDL) based on the XML Schema Language, and system tools. The DDL defines the syntax of the Description Tools and allows the creation of new Description Schemes and Descriptors as well as the extension and modification of existing Description Schemes.

Generation of digital signatures is a costly process in terms of computation and communication. A high rate of join or leave requests may result in a performance degradation. One particular study attempts to minimize these problems with periodic batch rekeying [87]. In this approach, join or leave requests are collected during a rekey interval and are rekeyed in a batch. The out-ofsync problems are alleviated by delaying the use of a new group key until the next rekey interval. Batch processing also leads to a definite 32 Protection of Multimedia Content in Distribution Networks performance advantage.

Area i performs a KEKi rekey and area j performs a KEKj rekey. The only KEK held by a group member is for the area in which it currently resides. Unlike the baseline algorithm, no DEK is generated and data transmission continues uninterrupted. In IR, when a member leaves the group, a notification is sent to its current AKD. Delayed rekeying (DR): The member sends one notification to AKDi and one notification to AKDj. Area j performs a KEKj rekey, but area i does not perform a KEKi rekey. AKDi adds the member to the Extra Key Owner List (EKOL).
