Project Title: Simulation of Secure Data Storage Using Third Party Auditor (TPA)
Semester: 2 2014
Committe Chair: Dr. Mario Garcia
Committee Member 1: Dr. Long-zhuang Li
Committee Member 2: Dr. David Thomas
Project Description: Cloud computing enables the sharing of services over a network. Many Internet users store their data in the cloud. Despite cyberspace users having no physical retention of huge amounts of their outsourced data, data integrity security in cloud computing is a difficult task, especially for users who have only partial computing capabilities and resources. Cyberspace users should be able to use network storage as if it is in the local system, without worrying about the verification of integrity. Hence, allowing public analysis for cloud storage is important so that users can use an alternative to a third-party auditor (TPA) to check the integrity of the outsourced data. To securely initiate the services of an efficient TPA, the auditing process must not introduce new vulnerabilities to users’ data privacy or further burden users’ online load. In this research, data storage in the cloud system that is secure and also supports privacy is recommended. The implemented system performs audits for multiple users concurrently and in an efficient manner.
