Granule Based File Storage System with Secure Transparent Availability
The main aim of many security algorithms is to provide security to the data that users store. These algorithms provide security only untill the intruder gets hold of the file. With advancements in technology, any security mechanism can be cracked within a specified time period. In the authors' paper, they propose an alternative mechanism to this kind of security provision. They propose that the file be splitted into n number of particles and these particles be distributed within the system providing transparency to the user. The GFMS makes sure that the file is splitted and distributed inside the system in such a way that, even if some part of the file is retrieved no information can be recognized.
