The scheme will allow you to place pieces of data in different cloud storages that belong to different owners.
Russian scientists from the South Ural state University (SUSU) has developed a scheme for encrypting and storing data IoT-devices, which allows to protect the transmitted information from cybercriminals, told the news Agency “RIA Novosti”.
According to experts, the attackers can intercept the data transferred between IoT devices, because even a “smart” electricity meter communicates in the house when enable or disable the light. Thus, the offender is able to calculate the period of time when the owners are not present, and to penetrate into the apartment.
“Instead of collecting all data in one cloud, we proposed another encryption scheme. It will allow you to place pieces of data in different cloud storages that belong to different owners. Even if some of the data would be intercepted, an attacker will not be able to recover data from a partial dataset. If some data is lost as a result of the failure, this scheme allows to recover data from those parts that were sent to other locations,” said the experts.
In the future, the researchers plan to test the functionality of the scheme during failure, faults and settings.
