P2E: Privacy-preserving and effective cloud data sharing service

Abstract

Data sharing in the cloud, fueled by favorable cloud technology trends, has emerging as a promising pattern in regard to enabling data more accessible to users in a convenient manner. To achieve data sharing, enterprises and customers in increasing numbers keep their data stored into cloud server. In this paper, we focus on seeking a solution that allows secure and effective access to the cloud data. We propose an effective and flexible privacy-preserving data policy, P2E, utilizing ciphertext policy attribute-based encryption (CP-ABE) and combining it with technique of identity-based encryption (IBE). In addition to ensuring strong data sharing security, the policy succeeds in pre­ serving the privacy of cloud users. Security analysis indicates that the proposed policy is security and enforces fine-grained access control and full collusion resistance simultaneously. Furthermore, our performance analysis and experimental results show that P2E is as light as possible.
