Enabling Cloud Storage Auditing With Key-Exposure Resistance
Abstract— Cloud storage auditing is viewed as an important service to verify the integrity of the data in public cloud. Current auditing protocols are all based on the assumption that the client’s secret key for auditing is absolutely secure. However, such assumption may not always be held, due to the possibly weak sense of security and/or low security settings at the client. If such a secret key for auditing is exposed, most of the current auditing protocols would inevitably become unable to work. In this paper, we focus on this new aspect of cloud storage auditing. We investigate how to reduce the damage of the client’s key exposure in cloud storage auditing, and give the ﬁrst practical solution for this new problem setting. We formalize the deﬁnition and the security model of auditing protocol with key-exposure resilience and propose such a protocol < Final Year Projects 2016 > set of rules. In our design, we employ the binary tree structure and the preorder traversal technique to update the secret keys for the client. We also develop a novel authenticator construction to support the forward security and
the property of block less veriﬁability.
