Evaluating Cost and Performance Of Adaptive Encryption Architecture for Cloud Database

MD. Rafi Yuddin, Mr. Shah


The cloud database as a service is novel paradigms that can be support several Internet-based applications, its adoption requires the solution of the information confidentiality problems. We proposed a novel architecture for adaptive encryption of public cloud databases that offers an interesting alternative to the tradeoff between the required data confidentiality level and the flexibility of the cloud database structures at time. We demonstrate the feasibility and performance of the proposed solution through a software prototype. We propose an original cost model that is oriented to the evaluation of cloud database services in plain text and encrypted instances and that takes into account the variability of cloud prices and tenant workloads during a medium-term period.
