Abstract

Computation offloading to the Cloud for energy efficiency in portable devices is an emerging area of research triggered by the widespread use and acceptance of smart phones. A number of architectures have already been proposed in this context. However, security issues in the cloud still remain a concern that can play an important role in deciding whether offloading really helps to achieve energy efficiency in mobile phones. Our framework is based on a layered data approach together with user selected security policies. This motivated us to develop a mathematical model to depict the energy consumption when performing a security-enhanced computation in the cloud. The model demonstrates the potential energy saving in the event of user or organization specified policy for secure computing and data storage in the Cloud.
