Engineering and Technology Journal, 2016, Volume 34, Issue 4, Pages 787-796

The purpose of this research to create an application on Mobile allows volunteers and official staff sends information about various environmental problems suffered by the Iraqi individual in his environment and sends it to the relevant environmental authorities for the purpose of storage and archiving electronically with the ability to display this data and retrieved and modified or deleted. The application is a client - server system and the application development for mobile device is Android Studio while environmental database created on the local host xampp server with web php pages to view reports and search or by using the Capabilities of the local host xampp server itself. Use the application allows the participation of the largest number of volunteers and environmental staff and notification directly about the problems and environmental damage at low cost, and improve the interaction between society and environmental authorities and to increase environmental awareness and improve the popular environmental control and provide the possibility of environmental remediation faster and achieve a something of Sustainable development social and environmental dimensions .

A Secure Mobile Banking Using Kerberos Protocol

Because the network is an open environment, a lot of care must be taken when
transferring sensitive information especially when related with financial data. This depends
on the principals to be trusted which is a problematic and since the first step in network
security is the authentication, this paper presents a proposed modal for secure mobile
banking (m-banking) applications using Kerberos (the network authentication protocol).
The aim of this paper is to establish a secure communication between the clients and
mobile-bank application server in which they can use their mobile phone to securely access
their bank accounts, make and receive payments, and check their balances.
The integration of smart card into classic Kerberos enhances the security for client
authentication by storing the cryptographic keys and perform dual factor authentication.
Other enhancement to Kerberos is the PKINIT in which the shared key is mapped with
public- private key. To build a robust client authentication the client uses his/her mobile
phone to author Kerberos's messages, process the replay and establish secure
communication with the application server.
