Research Interests- Archival Storage, Storage Security, Information retrieval, cloud storage architecture, data privacy in cloud and Cryptography
Current Projects: To avoid the complexities of key management and constant updates due to encryption algorithm deprecation, authentication is preferred over encryption to securely store archival data. Secret-Splitting is a method that not only improves data reliability, but also reduces risks of insider threats. SSRC has had projects like POTSHARDS in the past that has been used to reconstruct a secret-split archival datastore. We are currently working on improved solutions for reconstruction of secret-split datastores.
The Secret-Split Secure Hash Method - used to quickly reduce reconstruction space of secret-split datastore required to identify sibling shares.
