Real time System, Scheduling, Security Services, Clusters
In today arena security critical real time applications running over clusters are growing very rapidly. As an application running on clusters demand both timeliness and security thus, an efficient scheduling algorithm is needed that have better performance in terms of both number of task accepted and security value received. This paper modifies the security aware scheduling approach [5] by utilizing the concept of task criticality and adaptive threshold value. Also, this paper discus the system architecture used, mathematical model, lemmas and modified scheduling approach. Further, simulation studies have been carried out in MATLAB (module for Real-time) to measure the performance of modified approach. The modified approach is applicable over wide range of application differing in there requirement and have better performance.
