Efficient Dynamic Provable Possession of Remote Data via Update Trees
Source: University of Northern Iowa
The emergence and wide availability of remote storage service providers prompted work in the security community that allows a client to verify integrity and availability of the data that she outsourced to an untrusted remove storage server at a relatively low cost. Most recent solutions to this problem allow the client to read and update (i.e., insert, modify, or delete) stored data blocks while trying to lower the overhead associated with verifying the integrity of the stored data. In this paper, the authors develop a novel scheme, performance of which favorably compares with the existing solutions. Their solution enjoys a number of new features such as a natural support for operations on ranges of blocks, revision control, and support for multiple user access to shared content.
