Subject: Analysing Professional Journal
The purpose of this assignment is to analysis the peer reviewed article “Security Rule Checking in IC Design,” which was published in the journal Computers in August 2016. This memo will focus on the readability, writing qualities, and scientific methodologies.
Computers is an annual journal that publishes by IEEE Computer Society. It is peer reviewed journal that can be found online and hardcopy. Most of the articles which were written by computer researchers were about all stuff about computer such as hardware, software, new applications, etc. The target audiences are computer …show more content…
Moreover, as everyone knows that mathematics is the basic knowledge of computer science and engineering, I want to see the connection between all these subjects.
We will follow Markel’s Characteristics of a Technical Document in Ch.1 page 6 to analysis this article’s readability by six characteristics
Addresses Particular Readers
Helps readers Solve Problems
Reflects the Organization’s Goals and Culture
Is Produced Collaboratively
Uses Design to Increase Readability
Consists of Words or Images or Both
In the first and second page, the authors addressed out the articles aims to help IC designers to build less risk IC boards. “Hardware vulnerabilities can also result from design mistakes, often because the designer does not sufficiently understand security problems,” the authors point out that not only software, but also hardware will cause the vulnerabilities, and designers must understand the methods how to measure, design, and find the weaknesses. Moreover, some jargon was used in the article. For example, in the “Vulnerabilities from design mistakes and CAD tools” section, the authors introduced the CAD tools as “used extensively in logic synthesis, DFT insertion, placement and routing, and so on.” (4) It was hard to understand what it is if readers did not have the basic knowledge

“Focuses on the aesthetic aspects of the text (e.g., plot, character development, setting, length and complexity of sentences, word choice, word order, figures of speech, and illustrations)” (Botelho & Rudman, 2009, pg. 25).
Analyzing is one effective reading strategy a reader can use. This method is most effective by thinking about the writer’s arranged ideas. For example, viewing the developed topics and the structure of the paragraph is a way of analyzing. Annotating is beneficial to the reader who is analyzing the text. When using annotating, a reader
It is not uncommon to find various organizations complaining about security flaws in their information systems. Failing to prevent or mitigate the security flaws may lead to system breakdown, errors, and loss of crucial information. This is why it is important for users of information systems to find the right solutions that can help counter and mitigate security flaws. One common problem with security flaws connected with information systems or networks is that the security flaws occur in multiples. Technological advances have, fortunately, made it possible for people and organizations to prevent and detect such security flaws using security strategies. Layered Security and Defense in Depth are two strategies that can help prevent attacks and protect information systems against security flaws. The two strategies are similar but are based on completely two different concepts. This paper compares and contrasts the Layered Security and Defense in Depth Strategies by explaining how each of the two functions. Additionally, the paper includes an explanation about the advantages and disadvantages of the two strategies.
1. This document teaches student how to read the word, by showing a specific point of view of the author. By sourcing it, the students can understand that the document represent the perspective of the author.
Providing safety & security for the device from MAC flooding and Network spoofing by designing and implementing security & safety mechanisms which are essential for Network design.
The heading of the article gives clear information about the content of the article and study purpose. Research article has a formal appearance. The source is well structured in a good order with a graph and three tables. It has a decent length and rich content. The origin of the source is well-known as well as the names of the contributing authors.
Readability is defined as the ease at which a reader can understand a written text. An English professor by the name L. A. Sherman explained that "No man should talk worse than he writes, no man should write better than he should talk...." We
Are technology and mathematics related? Dr. Ahrendt replied with an absolute, “yes!” Dr. Ahrendt then further explained how you can’t have one without the other and that “math fuels technology.” More specifically, math is driven by patterns and technology builds off these patterns.
In the past, academic and administrative computer systems were isolated, either for security reasons or as a result of limited interconnectivity with other computers. Today, nearly any information that an administrator, teacher, student or parent might is available through a network connection. Course lectures are presented are viewed and students submit their assignments via the internet school class shell. Student and parents can view their grades online, administrative paperwork and other information can be shared through a variety of systems. The internet is an awesome and convenient way to communicate, but it introduces
I. Computer 's are an integral part of our daily lives. Just about anywhere you go, a computer is present. Hospitals, banks, even the gas pump you frequent, relies on computer 's to figure out how much gas you pump, how much it is per gallon, and where to get that money from. As you can see from this line graph, computer 's are in more demand than ever peaking at 350 million sold in a year. (Computer Sales Statistics)
NIST SP800-82 states, "A single security product or technology cannot adequately protect an ICS." Do you agree or disagree with this statement and why?
The writing has been written in a very subject specific term where the audience is expected to already have at least a medium understanding on the topic. For example, in the article the following is said; “Conclusions: The unique associations between affective response to exercise and affective, but not cognitive, factors elucidate key predictors of affective response during- and post-exercise…,” though this language is not exceptionally complex it shows the depth that a reader would need to understand the article. Key words like anticipatory and anticipated are common throughout the article, however, they are not commonly used or known words, this shows that the langue in the article is specific and specialized to that particular type of scientific journal. The article is also extremely concise and doesn’t dibble continuously on and off topic. This can be seen by the amount of information and explanation that is in the article. The article is approximately 7,000 words which is not that many words for a journal article however, the text is written in such a way that large amount of information can be
Security at hardware level is a new trend in security industry; it will accelerate the security at the processor and chip-set level (Vaquero, Rodero-Merino and Moran, 2011:112). Antivirus solution with Computers and Hardware will eliminate antivirus and Firewall security solutions industry. (Bruce Schneier accessed January/9 2013). Intel is planning to move computer security to the hardware level from its current software level, by incorporating security features onto their chips and processors (MEED 2010).This will also hit the IT Security devices market.
My interest towards mathematics made me to take Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry as the main subjects during my intermediate (10+2). After obtaining 94% marks in Intermediate and securing a top 6% rank in engineering entrance test, I opted for Computer Science Engineering in JNTU College of Engineering. Immediately after my Bachelor’s degree, I secured the job in Wipro Technologies and this offered me numerous opportunities to learn about the technical aspects of Software industry.
