Security architecture and protocol for trust verifications regarding the integrity of files stored in cloud services
Have you considered the security of your files hosted in the cloud? Of course you have, and reputable providers provide a solid guarantee of safety. But what if you could monitor the status of your files as well as the behavior of your cloud service provider? In this 2018 paper published by Pinheiro et al., such a proposition is proven as practical. The authors demonstrate just that using architecture that includes a “protocol based on trust and encryption concepts to ensure cloud data integrity without compromising confidentiality and without overloading storage services.” They conclude that not only is such monitoring able to be done efficiently and rapidly, but also the “architecture proved to be quite robust during the tests, satisfactorily responding to the fault simulations,” including unplanned server shutdown.
