A Survey on Integrity Auditing for Data Storage in the Cloud: From Single Copy to Multiple Replicas
IEEE Transactions on Big Data
The rapid advancement of cloud computing has promoted the development of cloud storage services. One of the biggest concerns of cloud users is whether the completeness and recoverability of data can be guaranteed when cloud servers encounter problems. Only when the integrity of data is fully guaranteed can users consume cloud storage with confidence, especially in a complicated cloud environment with multiple clouds. However, the literature still lacks a thorough survey on cloud data integrity auditing for both single copy and multiple replicas. In this article, we survey and compare existing auditing schemes for single copy and multiple replicas based on a set of criteria. Based on our review and analysis, we discuss open issues, potential applications and future directions in the field of the integrity auditing in the cloud, including the implications of such trendy topics as merging blockchain and edge computing into data integrity auditing.
