Research Issues and Scope of Data Security by Self Destruction Mechanism in Cloud Computing

Jadala Vijaya Chandra, Dr. Gyaderla Ranjith Sirupa Vijaya Laxmi


Cloud computing is used not only for storage, different services and applications are emerging day by day, protecting data is becoming challenge and life time research issue, data security is the major issue in the cloud computing, as the cloud user does not have any idea where his sensitive confidential data is placed. As the requirement of storage capacities are increasing drastically, the users requirements are forcing to adopt cloud and security is the major issue. We discussed implementation of time based self-destruction for data privacy. We focused on different attacks such as hopping attack, Sybil attack, sniffer attack and advanced persistent attack. Cryptography is playing a major role in securing data from ancient time addressing the solution for problems from intruders. Encrypted data is stored in different storage servers and data centers all over the world while secret keys are retained by the data owners. Time Based Self Destruction Mechanism destroys electronic data automatically without human interaction, after certain period of the time period, if the data owners wants the data retrieved based on the authentication and authorization the data will be reconstructed from log-files. If the key is destroyed the data in cloud will be useless and an easy prey for the intruders. Time based self-destruction mechanism design and implementation issues are discussed along with the mathematical and statistical analysis. An experimental analysis is given with results.
