SCFS: TOWARDS DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF A SECURE DISTRIBUTED FILESYSTEM

Juan Vera-del-Campo, Juan Hernández-Serrano, Josep Pegueroles

Abstract

Our digital world creates lots of data than users desire to preserve from malfunctioning, local disasters or human errors. Current nodes in the internet has enough intelligence and processing power to allow the deployment of distributed services on common nodes. This is the case of peer-to-peer networks and services. There are several proposals in literature to deploy a distributed filesystem over the internet. This paper presents and analyses the security of a prototype based on Cooperative File System.
