Storage Security in Cloud Computing: Data Auditing Protocols

Andrei-Alexandru Brebu, Mihai Iacov, and Emil Simion


Cloud computing has emerged as a necessity for hosting data on cloud servers so that information can be accessed and shared remotely. It was quickly adopted because it provides quality of service for various remotely available, easy-to-configure, and easy-to- use products, such as IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) or PaaS (Platform as a Service). However, this new paradigm of data hosting brings new challenges. Some of the challenges related to the issue of security require independent audit services to verify the integrity of cloud-hosted data. With many end users and companies moving from on-premise to cloud models for their business, cloud data security is a critical concept that needs to be managed. First, we identify security requirements. Second, we look at potential solutions to ensure data integrity in cloud storage. Last, we propose a data auditing solution that can be used to detect corrupt data or file anomalies in the storage system.
