Cloud computing is an emerging paradigm offering companies (virtually) unlimited data storage and computation at attractive costs. It is a cost-effective model because it does not require deployment and maintenance of any dedicated IT infrastructure. Despite its benefits, it introduces new challenges for protecting the confidentiality of the data. Sensitive(More)
We design a content-centric privacy scheme for Information-Centric Networking (ICN). We enhance ICN's ability to support data confidentiality by introducing attribute-based encryption into ICN and making it specific to the data attributes. Our approach is unusual in that it preserves ICN's goal to decouple publishers and subscribers for greater data(More)
With the ever increasing number of connected devices and the over abundance of data generated by these devices, data privacy has become a critical concern in the Internet of Things (IoT). One promising privacy-preservation approach is Attribute-Based Encryption (ABE), a public key encryption scheme that enables fine-grained access control, scalable key(More)
Digital ecosystems is the new paradigm for dynamic IT business integration. A digital ecosystem consists of institutions that compete, collaborate, and form stable or unstable federations. Such a dynamic environment becomes a bottleneck for identity management solutions. Existing solutions are either too restricting and not flexible enough to support the(More)
The publish/subscribe model offers a loosely-coupled communication paradigm where applications interact indirectly and asynchronously. Publisher applications generate events that are forwarded to subscriber applications by a network of brokers. Subscribers register by specifying filters that brokers match against events as part of the routing process.(More)
The publish/subscribe model offers a loosely-coupled communication paradigm where applications interact indirectly and asynchronously. Publisher applications generate events that are sent to interested applications through a network of brokers. Subscriber applications express their interest by specifying filters that brokers can use for routing the events.(More)

Cloud storage offers the flexibility of accessing data from anywhere at any time while providing economical benefits and scalability. However, cloud stores lack the ability to manage data provenance. Data provenance describes how a particular piece of data has been produced. It is vital for a post-incident investigation, widely used in healthcare,(More)
