Special Issue Information
Outsourcing data to public clouds provides an effective solution for large-scale data storage management in the face of explosive data growths. However, putting all data in the cloud raises a multitude of security concerns, such as confidentiality (i.e., data is kept secret against unauthorized access), storage efficiency (i.e., data occupies small footprints), fault tolerance (i.e., data can be recovered against failures), integrity (i.e., data is uncorrupted), and even confidential computing (i.e., data can be effectively used without information leakage).
The purpose of this Special Issue is to improve the security of public cloud storage in both industry and research communities. Authors are encouraged to submit both theoretical and applied articles that address the security issues of cloud storage via new approaches, conduct case studies about the emerging cloud storage systems, or present the lessons and experiences that are learnt from the practices of cloud storage.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Vulnerabilities in cloud infrastructure;
- Secure data sharing and management in the cloud;
- Multitenancy related security/privacy issues;
- Privacy-preserving data retrieval;
- Fault tolerance;
- Trusted hardware-based cloud architecture;
- Blockchain technology in cloud storage;
- Secure cloud data management;
- Differential privacy;
- Privacy-preserving computation.
