ABSTRACT

As the wireless technologies are becoming more and more popular and the number of cloud providers increases due to the growing demand of services and new emerging concepts like "Cloud computing", security concerns are gaining a leading role. Data storage follows deprecated systems which make the cloud more vulnerable to data leakage. Besides, commmon cellphones have evolved to small pocket computers known as smart-phones, running their own Operating System. These devices are suffering every year an increment of cyber-attacks owing to weaknesses regarding the Operating System policy and the fact of using wireless standards such as GSM, UMTS, LTE, Wifi or Bluetooth. Over this document, we propose a new access control solution based on a cryptographic system managed by the end-user to add extra security to one's personal information on the cloud. It is orientated to smart-phones and takes into account the computational limitations these devices may have.
