Considerations for the Cryptographic Cloud

March 11, 2011

Members of the Microsoft Research Cryptography Group describe the complexities of building a secure cloud storage service on top of a public cloud infrastructure, which is often not fully trusted by the user. Dr. Kamara and Dr. Lauter also shed light on key architectures that combine recent and non-standard cryptographic primitives and survey the benefits such rchitectures would provide to both cloud providers and their end users.
