By Yuri Romanenkov Vadym Mukhin Viktor Kosenko Daniil Revenko Olena Lobach Natalia Kosenko Alla Yakovleva

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Apr. 2024

The study solves the problem of improving the methodological and algorithmic support of the decision-making process by developing a model of the preference criterion for interval evaluations of alternatives. The aim of the study is to improve the efficiency of decision-making based on interval expert data under conditions of uncertainty and risk by developing a criterion for the preferences of interval evaluations of overlapping alternatives. The object of the study is the decision-making process based on the classical efficiency matrix with interval elements, the subject is the model of decision maker's (DMP) preference criteria for interval evaluations of alternatives. The relevance of the task is stipulated by the urgency of the problem of adapting classical decision-making methods and models to practical problems of gray analysis, in particular, with interval uncertainty of primary expert data. A multifactorial model of the normalized preference criterion for interval evaluations of alternatives is proposed. Due to the additional consideration of the degree of preference of the DMP for the width of interval estimates, it allows ranking interval estimates of alternatives that overlap and are considered classically incomparable. A single analytical form of the normalized criterion model for ranking interval, weighted interval and point estimates makes it possible to increase the degree of automation of processing interval expert estimates in the decision-making process. Recommendations for the practical application of the proposed model are formulated. The developed model and corresponding algorithms can be used in automated expert decision support systems.

By Vadym Mukhin Pavlo Anakhov Viktoriia Zhebka Vladislav Kravchenko Aksieniia Shtimmerman Valerii Zavgorodnii Yurii Bazaka

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Oct. 2022

A hybrid network, which consists of the sections of communication lines with the transmission of signals of different physical nature on different transmission media, has been considered. Communication lines respond differently to threats, which allows to choose the line with the best performance for the transmission of information. The causal diagram of events that determine the state of the information transmission network, such as changes in emergency/accident-free time intervals, has been presented. The application scheme of the protection measures against dangerous events has been shown. To verify the measures, a matrix of their compliance with typical natural disasters has been developed and relevant examples have been given. It is suggested to evaluate the flexibility of the telecommunication network by its connectivity, characterized by the numbers of vertex and edge connectivity, the probability of connectivity. The presented scheme of the device for multi-channel information transmission in a hybrid network allows the choice for the transmission of information to the channel with the best performance. Using this device is the essence of the suggestion about increasing the flexibility of the network.

By Andrii Rybalochka Vasyl Kornaga Daria Kalustova Vadym Mukhin Yaroslav Kornaga Valerii Zavgorodnii Sergiy Valyukh

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Jun. 2022

In this paper, aspects of obtaining white colour hues for displays/monitors and lighting by using three- and four-components LED systems are discussed. Photometric equipment developed by us for multichannel LEDs control is used in an experimental study to verify theoretical calculations. Three-component RGB and four-component RGBW LED systems, which utilise the same RGB light sources and two white LEDs with warm and cold hues, are investigated. Results of testing of luminous efficacy of such systems at different values of light intensity and comparison of the corresponding circadian action factor as the value of impact of summarized RGB and RGBW white light on human circadian rhythms are presented. It is demonstrated that the four-component RGBW LED systems are more preferable for lighting and displays than the three-components RGB LED systems, because of significant higher luminous efficacy and slightly lower circadian factor over the entire range of correlated colour temperature from 2500K to 7000K studied.

Method of Parallel Information Object Search in Unified Information Spaces

By Alexander Dodonov Vadym Mukhin Valerii Zavgorodnii Yaroslav Kornaga Anna Zavgorodnya Oleg Mukhin

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Aug. 2021

The article describes the concept of a unified information space and an algorithm of its formation using a special information and computer system. The process of incoming object search in a unified information space is considered, which makes it possible to uniquely identify it by corresponding features. One of the main tasks of a unified information space is that each information object in it is uniquely identified. For this, the identification method was used, which is based on a step-by-step analysis of object characteristics. The method of parallel information object search in unified information spaces is proposed, when information object search will be conducted independently in all unified information spaces in parallel. Experimental studies of the method of parallel information object search in unified information spaces were conducted, on the basis of which the analysis of efficiency and incoming objects search time in unified information spaces was carried out. There was experimentally approved that the more parameters that describe the information object, the less the time of object identification depends on the length of the interval. Also, there was experimentally approved that the efficiency of the searching of the incoming objects in unified information spaces tends to a directly proportional relationship with a decrease in the length of the interval and an increase in the number of parameters, and vice versa.

Performance Study of Spread Spectrum Systems with Hard Limiters

By Oleksandr Pliushch Viktor Vyshnivskyi Volodymyr Tolubko Vadym Mukhin Serhii Ishcheryakov Mykhailo Okhramovych Vitalii Loza

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Oct. 2020

Use of spread spectrum systems in telecommunications is studied. It is shown that spread spectrum techniques can substantially enhance noise and interference immunity in the currently deployed information transmission networks. Primitive polynomials are proposed to obtain respective spreading codes. A spreading code consisting of 1023 chips is synthesized and its characteristics are studied.
It is deduced that powerful interferences can exceed dynamic range of the receiving part of the system and, as a result, deteriorate information transmission. To overcome this problem, utilization of limiters is proposed, in which limitation level equals that of the internal noise of the receiving part. Computer simulation is employed to test the performance of the proposed solution. Performance of the spread spectrum system for information transfer is studied both without the limiter and with the limiter.
Research results show that, for binary modulation, performance of the system with limitation and without limitation is nearly identical while limiters can substantially reduce requirements for the dynamic range.
Compared to the existing approaches, it is proposed to use the synthesized spreading coding sequence with the limitation technique in practical implementations of those telecommunication networks, in which noise immunity and transmission concealment are required, such as in unmanned aerial vehicles. This can replace currently used approaches, such as frequency hopping, transmission power adjustment and antenna pattern changes.

Method for Determination of Cyber Threats Based on Machine Learning for Real-Time Information System

By Volodymyr Tolubko Viktor Vyshnivskyi Vadym Mukhin Halyna Haidur Nadiia Dovzhenko Oleh Ilin Volodymyr Vasylenko

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Aug. 2018

This work is about the definition of cyber threats in the information system. The cyber threats lead to significant loss of network resources and cause the system disability as a whole. Detecting countermeasures in certain threats can reduce the impact on the system by changing the topology of the network in advance. Consequently, the interruption of a cyberattack forces the intruders to seek for alternative ways to damage the system. The most important task in the information system work is the state of network equipment monitoring. Also it’s the support of the network infrastructure in working order.
The purpose of the work is to develop a method for detecting cyber threats for the information system. The system can independently detect cyber threats and develop countermeasures against them. The main feature of the counteractions is to protect network nodes from compromising.
To ensure the functional stability, the most important issues are providing safety metrics. This technique allows to increase the functional stability of the system, which works in real time.

The Method of Hidden Terminal Transmission of Network Attack Signatures

By Igor Ruban Nataliia Lukova-Chuiko Vadym Mukhin Yaroslav Kornaga Igor Grishko Anton Smirnov

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Apr. 2018

This article is proposes a new approach to the transmission of signatures of network attacks onto a remote Internet resource. The problem is that the known protocols that are used for transfer data and control actions from an administrative resource to a network agents are poorly protected. Even in case of use of cryptographic mechanisms for organization of secure connections, it is possible to form behavioral patterns of interactions such as "administrative resource - network agents." Such templates allow to predict the actions taken in accordance with the security policy in order to maintain the required level of functionality of a remote Internet resource. Thus, it is necessary to develop a new protocol for the transfer of designated information, based on information technology, which level out the existence of opportunities for the formation of behavioral patterns of network interactions. As such technology, it is proposed to use a set of means of network interaction and some methods of hidden (steganographic) data transmission in information and telecommunication networks.

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Jul. 2017

In this paper, we present the development of a decentralized mechanism for the resources control in a distributed computer system based on a network-centric approach. Intially, the network-centric approach was proposed for the military purposes, and now its principles are successfully introduced in the other applications of the complex systems control. Due to the features of control systems based on the network-centric approach, namely adding the horizontal links between components of the same level, adding the general knowledge control in the system, etc., there are new properties and characteristics. The concept of implementing of resource control module for a distributed computer system based on a network-centric approach is proposed in this study. We, basing on this concept, realized the resource control module and perform the analysis of its operation parameters in compare with resource control modules implemented on the hierarchical approach and on the decentralized approach with the creation of the communities of the computing resources. The experiments showed the advantages of the proposed mechanism for resources control in compare with the control mechanisms based on the hierarchical and decentralized approaches.

By Zhengbing Hu Vadym Mukhin Yaroslav Kornaga Yaroslav Lavrenko Oleg Barabash Oksana Herasymenko

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Dec. 2016

The article deals with the issues of the security of distributed and scalable computer systems based on the risk-based approach. The main existing methods for predicting the consequences of the dangerous actions of the intrusion agents are described. There is shown a generalized structural scheme of job manager in the context of a risk-based approach. Suggested analytical assessments for the security risk level in the distributed computer systems allow performing the critical time values forecast for the situation analysis and decision-making for the current configuration of a distributed computer system. These assessments are based on the number of used nodes and data links channels, the number of active security and monitoring mechanisms at the current period, as well as on the intensity of the security threats realization and on the activation intensity of the intrusion prevention mechanisms. The proposed comprehensive analytical risks assessments allow analyzing the dynamics of intrusions processes, the dynamics of the security level recovery and the corresponding dynamics of the risks level in the distributed computer system.

By Vadym Mukhin Artem Volokyta

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Feb. 2013

Today, there are known the basic principles of decision-making on the safety control of distributed computer systems in the face of uncertainty and risk. However, in this area there are no practical methods for the quantitative risk analysis and assessment, taking into account the dynamic changes of security threats, which is typical for distributed computer systems.
In this paper is suggested an approach to assesment and minimization of the security risks, which allows to reduce the potential losses due to the realization of threats, to analyze the dynamics of intrusions into computer systems and to select the effective security tools.
As a result, there is designed the structure of the tools for risk minimization in the distributed computer systems and are formalized the main functions of this structure. Also, in the paper is suggested the assessment of risk factors of the security threats and the probability of the threats realization, which are based on their division into appropriate groups. The proposed tools for security risk minimization allow effectively identify, classify and analyze threats to the security of the distributed computing systems.
