Privacy-Aware Verification of Aggregate Queries on Outsourced Databases With Applications to Historic Data Integrity
Source: Rutgers University
It is often desirable to be able to guarantee the integrity of historical data, ensuring that any subsequent modifications to the data can be detected. It would be especially convenient to extend such proofs of integrity to certain computations performed later using the historic data. The authors raise this question in the context of outsourced databases, where a data owner delegates the ability to answer users' queries to a service provider, and distrustful users may desire to verify the integrity of responses to their queries on the data.
