Data: Centric integrity control system for cloud based structured databases


Okozor Nkeiruka Petrolina, Okezie Christian Chikodili, Inyiama Hycinth Chibueze

Data –centric integrity control system for cloud based structured databases has been developed in this paper. The issue of data integrity in the cloud based database is important, in the sense that compromised data is of no use to any organization. Literature review has shown that there are gaps in the data integrity measures being used at the moment hence there is need to augment them with further innovation. The integrity measure being recommended is based on the use of supervisory software to ensure that only valid data is stored. The valid data is digitally signed at the record level and encrypted using symmetric- key encryption before it is sent to the cloud for storage. Similarly data retrieved from the cloud is first decrypted after which the digital signature it contains on record by record basis is used to authenticate the integrity of each record. Only the data that passes this integrity check is passed to the user. Data that fails integrity check is first reconstructed before being released to the user. Thus the user never gets anything but the correct originally stored data. This method ensures that data remains accurate through-out its life span. This enhanced model ensures that data owners are in total control of their data without even the cloud provider having a clear text to understand the data in the cloud.
