The order of input is an important reason for a fault to take place. Most specifically, in the even driven software where multiple events run one after another and action of one event depends on another one. In such a system, a fault is usually identified on a state when some events have already been occurred. To identify this fault, a sequence covering array is created ensuring that a sequence of a required t-way or pairwise (interaction) events are covered. However, generation of optimum sequences appeared to be a NP-hard problem. In the paper, we adopted swarm intelligence to generate the sequence covering array and a novel technique known as SISEQ is proposed. In the end, the SISEQ is compared with other technique. Finally, the analysis section shows that our technique is more acceptable.

Conference2017 International Conference on Applications and Techniques in Cyber Intelligence (ATCI)
OtherThe 2017 International Conference on Applications and Techniques in Cyber Security and Intelligence focuses on all aspects on techniques and applications in cyber and electronics security and intelligence research. The purpose of ATCI 2017 is to provide a forum for presentation and discussion of innovative ideas, cutting edge research results, and novel techniques, methods and applications on all aspects of cyber and electronics security and intelligence.
As in previous years, the conference intends to attract the cyber security and cyber intelligence (e.g. big data) research community from around the world. Each submission will be reviewed by at least three independent experts, and the acceptance rate will be below 30%. We will invite three internationally renowned keynote speakers for this conference.
