A Proposed Model for Data Security of Cloud Storage Using Trusted Platform Module
Cloud Computing is one of the emerging technologies in Computer Science. Cloud provides various types of services to them. Storage as a Service is generally seen as a good alternative for a small or mid-sized business that lacks the capital budget and/or technical personnel to implement and maintain their own storage. But the main issue is to maintain CIA (Confidentiality, Integrity and Authentication) to the data stored in the cloud. So the authors have proposed a Trusted Cloud Storage Architecture which applies the specification of Trusted Computing Group (TCG). TCG is a global industry standard, supportive of a hardware-based root of trust, for interoperable trusted computing platforms. They use TPM to encrypt data before storing it to the cloud.
