Regulatory Compliant Oblivious RAM
Source: Stony Brook University
The authors introduce WORM-ORAM, a first mechanism that combines Oblivious RAM (ORAM) access privacy and data confidentiality with Write Once Read Many (WORM) regulatory data retention guarantees. Clients can outsource their database to a server with full confidentiality and data access privacy, and, for data retention, the server ensures client access WORM semantics. In general simple confidentiality and WORM assurances are easily achievable e.g., via an encrypted outsourced data repository with server-enforced read-only access to existing records (albeit encrypted).
