Clearing Linux disk cache

For experimentation, it’s very convenient to be able to drop the disk cache. For this, we can use the special file /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches. By writing 3 to it, we can clear most of the disk cache: $ free -m total used free shared buffers cached Mem: 1504 1471 33 0 36 801 -/+ buffers/cache: 633 871 […]

Socket::SetIpTos in NS-3 ver.3.26

One of the changes between ns-3 ver 3.25 and ver 3.26 is that now it is possible to set TOS value to the address. Yes, you read it right, TOS value to the address. Official Doxygen states following: https://www.nsnam.org/docs/release/3.26/models/html/sockets-api.html The native sockets API for ns-3 provides two public methods (of the Socket base class): void […]

Crypto++ VMAC issue

Well, I tried code available on http://www.cryptopp.com/wiki/VMAC in my NS-3 project on the following way: inputString = base64_encode (inputString); byte* Kkey = key->GetKey(); byte digestBytes[key->GetSize()]; byte digestBytes2[key->GetSize()]; CryptoPP::VMAC vmac; vmac.SetKeyWithIV(Kkey, key->GetSize(), m_iv, CryptoPP::AES::BLOCKSIZE); vmac.CalculateDigest(digestBytes, (byte *) inputString.c_str(), inputString.length()); //VMAC Verification vmac.SetKeyWithIV(Kkey, key->GetSize(), m_iv, CryptoPP::AES::BLOCKSIZE); vmac.CalculateDigest(digestBytes2, (byte *) inputString.c_str(), inputString.length()); std::string outputString = std::string( (char*)digestBytes, sizeof(digestBytes […]
