Cost-Efficient Data Privacy Protection in Multi Cloud Storage


Artem Matveev, Buryat Institute of Info communication (branch of) Siberian State University of Telecommunication and Information Science, Russia


Data privacy in the cloud is a big concern for all of its users, especially for public clouds. Modern trends in studies utilise multiple clouds to achieve data privacy protection. Most of the present studies focus on business-oriented solutions, but current study aims to create a solution for individual users which would not increase the cost of ownership, and provide enough flexibility and privacy protection by combining password protection, key-derivation, multilayer encryption and key distribution across multiple clouds. New design allows to use single cloud to store protected user data, meanwhile use free plans on other clouds to store key information on others and thereby does not rise a cost of the solution. As a result, proposed design gives multiple layers of protection of Data Privacy while having a low cost of use. With some further adaptation it could be proposed as a business solution.
