Abstract:
Cloud computing emerges as an attractive solution that can be delegated to store and process confidential data. However, several security risks are encountered with such a system as the securely encrypted data should be decrypted before processing them. Therefore, the decrypted data is susceptible to reading and alterations. As a result, processing encrypted data has been a research subject since the publication of the RSA encryption scheme in 1978. In this paper we present a relational database system based on homomorphic encryption schemes to preserve the integrity and confidentiality of the data. Our system executes SQL queries over encrypted data. We tested our system with a recently developed homomorphic scheme that enables the execution of arithmetic operations on ciphertexts. We show that the proposed system performs accurate SQL operations, yet its performance discourages a practical implementation of this system.
