Hardware Trust Model in Cloud Security


Presenter: Nevrus Kaja (University of Michigan - Dearborn)


Cloud computing is a model for enabling ubiquitous, convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction [9]. The objective of this poster is to provide a clear view of the work that has been done regarding the security of data in the cloud. Currently, there are many methods and provisions for cloud security but due to the “big data” nature of the cloud, most of them are software implementations. In a different approach, we have implemented the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) using hardware (H-AES) to provide a solution for data security in the cloud. This solution provides one of the fastest and most secure methods to receive, transmit and store data. According to our results we are able to implement this solution 16 times faster than other software implementations and 51 times faster than other hardware implementations.
