Cloud computing is considered as one of the most prominent paradigms in the information technology industry, since it can significantly reduce the costs of hardware and software resources in computing infrastructure. This convenience has enabled corporations to efficiently use the cloud storage as a mechanism to share data among their employees.
In this talk, I will describe two new directions on cloud computing security. The first issue deals with the extension of public key encryption with equality test. We revisit the notion and introduce the case where multi-ciphertext equality test is required. The second directon is with focussing on the effort to use cloud computing as a mechanism for data sharing. We consider a new direction where a malicious data publisher is involved.
