Network coding-based storage has recently received a lot of attention in the network coding community. Independently, another body of work has proposed integrity checking schemes for cloud storage, none of which, however, is customized for network coding storage or can efficiently support repair. In this paper, the authors bridge the gap between these currently disconnected bodies of work, and they focus on the (novel) advantage of network coding for integrity checking. They propose NC-Audit - a remote data integrity checking scheme, designed specifically for network coding-based storage cloud.
