A Secure Data Sharing and Query Processing Framework via Federation of Cloud Computing

Speakers: Sanjay Kumar Madria
Topic(s): Cloud and Infomation Retrieval,Databases & Information,Mobile Computing,Security & Information Protection


Due to cost-efficiency and less hands-on management, data owners are outsourcing their data to the cloud which can provide access to the data as a service. However, by outsourcing their data to the cloud, the data owners lose control over their data as the cloud provider becomes a third party service provider. At first, encrypting the data by the owner and then exporting it to the cloud seems to be a good approach. However, there is a potential efficiency problem with the outsourced encrypted data when the data owner revokes some of the users’ access privileges. An existing solution to this problem is based on symmetric key encryption scheme but it is not secure when a revoked user rejoins the system with different access privileges to the same data record. In this talk, I will discuss an efficient and Secure Data Sharing (SDS) framework using homomorphic encryption and proxy re-encryption schemes that prevents the leakage of unauthorized data when a revoked user rejoins the system. Next, I will present modification to the underlying SDS framework and present a new solution based on the data distribution technique to prevent the information leakage in the case of collusion between a revoked user and the cloud service provider. A comparison of the proposed solution with existing methods will be provided in detail. Furthermore, I will demonstrate how the existing work can be utilized in the proposed framework to support secure query processing. I will also provide a detailed security as well as experimental analysis of the proposed framework on Amazon EC2 and highlight its practical value.
