Innovative and secure ways to store data on Cloud/Edge environments

Focus: Computer Science

Data security is one of the hottest topics in the Information and Communication Technologies research area. Nowadays, several threats, including data leakage and ransomware, reduce the proliferation of distributed Cloud/Edge storage systems.

The goal of the course is to provide innovative solutions able to provide both data security and data redundancy allowing the diffusion of distributed Cloud/Edge storage systems.
The topics of the course include:

Introduction to cloud computing, including the model of services (IaaS, PaaS, SaaS);
Storage as a Service (including block storage) and DataBase as a Service;
Introduction to Edge Computing and differences between Cloud and Edge;
Omomorphic encryption;
Data Partitioning;
Secret sharing (SS) techniques
Shamir’s schema
Redundant Residue Number System
Case study1: Applicability of SS in distributed storage systems
Case study2: SS and eHealth
Nested Secret Sharing (NSS)
Case study3: Applicability of NSS for multi-drones storage system

It could be interesting if the student has a Computer Networks and Cryptography background, but it is not mandatory. We would like to show practice some concepts introduced by this course, so it could be pertinent if we have computer resources available in a lab for demonstrations, but it is not mandatory too.
