  • Abstract

    In the present digital world, different types of organization generate a huge volume of sensitive data comprising with financial data, health records, electronic health records, personal information and so on. The volume of digital data is tremendously improving at a staggering rate and it is expanding almost each and every year  and outperforming the ability of storage restriction. These data often required to be stored at multiple locations for a long time because of the regulatory compliance and operational purposes. The local management of such great volume of cloud data is costly as well as problematic because of the needs of qualified personnel capability and great storage capacity. While there is a secure drop in the cost of the storage management and hardware storage, cost has become more complex. The Storage-as-a-Service (SaaS) provided by CSPs is a developing solution to lessen the load of huge local data storage and data maintenance cost in terms of outsourcing data storage. In the scenario of outsourcing data, the organization delegates the management and storage of their data to a CSP in the exchange of already declared fees and it has been metered in GB per month. The number of outsourced data is stored on the remote server instead of using private computer systems. This research paper concentrates to provide secure cloud auditing process within the multiple groups of users. In addition this improves the data integrity, provable security and data recovery process. Thus it minimizes the communication complexity and storage cost. The proposed research work based on Enhanced Salted Challenge Response Authentication Mechanism (SCRAM) which is used for secret key authentication and sharing process.
