Abstract

Mobile cloud computing has emerged as one of the most promising technologies, which can greatly enlarge the application range of mobile devices by moving data storage and processing to powerful and centralized computing platforms located in clouds. However, how to keep data security and data privacy is an important and challenging issue when users outsource their sensitive data to mobile cloud for sharing. In this paper, we present a novel lightweight and fine-grained data access control scheme based on attribute-based encryption for mobile cloud computing. The analysis shows that the proposed scheme can meet the security requirement of mobile cloud computing, and provide flexible and expressive data access control policy. Furthermore, it has less computation cost compared with other schemes.
