Secure Cloud Storage Scheme Based On Hybrid Cryptosystem

Atanu Basu and Indranil Sengupta


This paper presents a secure cloud storage scheme based on hybrid cryptosystem, which consists of Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC), Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), and one-way hash function. Here, the data owner exports large volume of encrypted data to a cloud storage provider. The exported encrypted data is over-encrypted by the cloud storage provider, and the data is sent to the requesting user. An existing hybrid cryptosystem based dynamic key management scheme with hierarchical access control has been incorporated in our scheme. The key management scheme groups users in various security classes, and helps to derive efficiently, as well as directly the secret keys of the lower order security classes. The incorporated key management scheme in our proposed scheme incurs low computational, communication, and storage overheads for key generation, and derivation purposes. The security analysis, and the simulation results run on the AVISPA tool (formal security verification tool) show that the proposed scheme is protected from the adversaries. This scheme is useful in `owner-write-users-read' application areas, and the end users may use resource-constrained wireless mobile devices securely in this proposed scheme.
