Secure and Oblivious Cloud Storage and Deletion

Status: Active project

Project Description:
Cloud based storage services are increasingly being used by consumers for their enterprise storage needs. Cloud storage service should provide confidentiality and integrity along with high availability and reliability. These often contradicting requirements results in research challenges that this project aims to address.

This project addresses the open issues with developing an Oblivious Cloud storage architecture.

This project is a result of joint collaboration between UMBC and USNA. This project is sponsored by Office of Naval Research.
