Secure and Efficient Data Sharing for Decentralized DTN

Gauri N. Salodkar | Komal B. Bijwe [4]


Abstract: Nowadays, there have been increasing demands and concerns for distributed data security, One of the most challenging issues in data sharing systems is the enforcement of access policies and the support of policies updates. Cipher text policy attribute-based encryption (CP-ABE) is becoming a promising cryptographic solution to this issue. It enables data owners to define their own access policies over user attributes and enforce the policies on the data to be distributed. Cipher text -policy attribute-based encryption (CP-ABE) is a guaranteeing cryptographic answer for the right to gain entrance control issues. However, the problem of applying CP-ABE in decentralized DTNs introduces several security and privacy challenges with regard to the attribute revocation, key escrow, and coordination of attributes issued from different authorities. Thus a new methodology is introduced to provide successful communication between each other as well as access the confidential information provided by some major authorities like commander or other superiors. The methodology is called Disruption-Tolerant Network (DTN). This system provides efficient scenario for authorization policies and the policies update for secure data retrieval in most challenging cases. Mobile nodes in military environments such as a battlefield or a hostile region are likely to suffer from intermittent network connectivity and frequent partitions. Disruption-tolerant network (DTN) technologies are becoming successful solutions that allow wireless devices carried by soldiers to communicate with each other and access the confidential information or command reliably by exploiting external storage nodes. Some of the most challenging issues in this scenario are the enforcement of authorization policies and the policies update for secure data retrieval. We demonstrate how to apply the proposed mechanism to securely and efficiently manage the confidential data distributed in the disruption-tolerant military network also we propose a secure data retrieval scheme using CP-ABE for decentralized DTNs where multiple key authorities manage their attributes independently.
