Abstract: Currently, an increasing number of data owners prefer to store their data on remote servers due to a number of appealing advantages of cloud storage, say convenience and simplicity, scalability of the service and ubiquitous network access. However, outsourced data's transfer becomes a critical requirement for cloud users because of the emergence of various cloud storage services with different qualities of services. Therefore, the users might not only be anxious about the status of their data on cloud servers but also care whether the data are transferred entirely to the new cloud without corruption and whether the data on original cloud are discarded. To address these challenging issues, in this paper, we propose a novel auditing scheme for cloud storage services characterised by secure data transfer, provable data erasure, high error detection probability, confidential data storage. The proposed scheme can guarantee the integrity of remote data when the data are hosted on cloud servers and are transferred between two clouds, and secure deletion of the transferred data on the original cloud.

 

Keywords: cloud storage; data integrity; data deletion; data transfer.
