Thesis
Full-text available
Security in cloud computing is a relevant topic for research. Multiple branches of industry are embracing this paradigm to reduce operational costs, improve scalability and availability. Surprisingly, several techniques are still missing to properly preserve privacy on the cloud. Employing encryption for data storage and transport is not enough onc...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Privacy guarantees are still insufficient for outsourced data processing in the cloud. While employing encryption is feasible for data at rest or in transit, it is not for computation without remarkable performance slowdown. Thus, handling data in plaintext during processing is still required, which creates vulnerabilities that can be exploited by...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
No contexto da computação na nuvem, a aplicação de métodos criptográficos exclusivamente no armazenamento e transporte dos dados não é suficiente, uma vez que precisam ser revelados ao serviço para ocorrer processamento. Esquemas de cifração homomórfica são candidatos naturais para computação sobre dados cifrados, o que os torna capazes de satisfaz...
Article
Full-text available
Cloud computing is a ubiquitous paradigm responsible for a fundamental change in the way distributed computing is performed. The possibility to outsource the installation, maintenance and scalability of servers, added to competitive prices, makes this platform highly attractive to the computing industry. Despite this, privacy guarantees are still i...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
Under the dominant cloud computing paradigm, employing encryption for data storage and transport may not be enough. Security guarantees should also be extended to data processing. Homomorphic encryption schemes are natural candidates for computation over encrypted data since they are able to satisfy the requirements imposed by the cloud environment...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
Under the dominant cloud computing paradigm, employing encryption for data storage and transport may not be enough. Security guarantees should also be extended to data processing, to preserve the privacy of data owners and contractors. Ho-momorphic encryption schemes are a natural candidate for computing over encrypted data, satisfying these new se...
