Zero Data Remnance Proof in Cloud Storage
In a cloud environment where Storage is offered as a service, a client stores his data with a provider and pays as per the usage. Once the contract ends, the client, as the data owner, may like to see, due to privacy reasons and otherwise that the data is properly shredded in the provider storage. In this paper the authors propose a scheme for Zero Data Remnance Proof (ZDRP) - a comprehensive proof given by the cloud data storage provider as regards to zero data remnance post the SLA period. In absence of such shredding the provider can consume the data to his benefit without coming in legal framework.
