Authorized Private Keyword Search Over Encrypted Data in Cloud Computing
In cloud computing, clients usually outsource their data to the cloud storage servers to reduce the management costs. While those data may contain sensitive personal information, the cloud servers cannot be fully trusted in protecting them. Encryption is a promising way to protect the confidentiality of the outsourced data, but it also introduces much difficulty to performing effective searches over encrypted information. Most existing works do not support efficient searches with complex query conditions, and care needs to be taken when using them because of the potential privacy leakages about the data owners to the data users or the cloud server.
