With the explosive growth of mobile applications and extensive praxis of cloud computing, mobile cloud computing has been introduced to be a potential technology for mobile services. But privacy is the main concern for a mobile user in the modern era. In the current study, we address the privacy challenges faced by mobile users while outsourcing their data to the service provider for storage and processing. However, a secure mobile user is required to protect these fundamental privacy factors such as their personal data, real identity, current location and the actual query sent to the cloud vendor server while availing different cloud services. Under these privacy metrics, we evaluated the existing approaches that are counting privacy challenge in mobile cloud computing. The primary focus of this study is to presents a critical survey of recent privacy protection techniques. Leading to objective, the current study conduct a comparative analysis of these state of the art methods with their strong points, privacy level and scalability. After analysis, this paper suggests the pseudo-random permutation method could be a promising solution that can be taken into consideration for preserving user personal information and data query privacy in MCC more efficiently. Primarily, the purpose of the survey was to focus on further advancements of the suggested method. Furthermore, we present the future research directions in the mobile cloud computing paradigms.

DOI: https://doi.org/10.5815/ijeme.2020.04.02, Pub. Date: 8 Aug. 2020

The concept of Big Data become extensively popular for their vast usage in emerging technologies. Despite being complex and dynamic, big data environment has been generating the colossal amount of data which is impossible to handle from traditional data processing applications. Nowadays, the Internet of things (IoT) and social media platforms like, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, WhatsApp, LinkedIn, and YouTube generating data in various formats. Therefore, this promotes a drastic need for technology to store and process this tremendous volume of data. This research outlines the fundamental literature required to understand the concept of big data including its nature, definitions, types, and characteristics. Additionally, the primary focus of the current study is to deal with two fundamental issues; storing an enormous amount of data and fast data processing. Leading to objectives, the paper presents Hadoop as a solution to address the problem and discussed the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) and MapReduce programming framework for storage and processing in Big Data efficiently. Future research directions in this field determined based on opportunities and several emerging issues in Big Data domination. These research directions facilitate the exploration of the domain and the development of optimal solutions to address Big Data storage and processing problems. Moreover, this study contributes to the existing body of knowledge by comprehensively addressing the opportunities and emerging issues of Big Data.

Data Security in Mobile Cloud Computing: A State of the Art Review

By Rida Qayyum Hina Ejaz

DOI: https://doi.org/10.5815/ijmecs.2020.02.04, Pub. Date: 8 Apr. 2020

Due to tremendous use of smartphones the concern of cloud computing in mobile devices emerges, which is known as Mobile Cloud Computing (MCC). It involves the usage of mobile devices and cloud computing to perform resource intensive tasks using the internet with minimum impact on cellular resources. Nowadays, people are relying on mobile devices due to their small size and user friendly interface but due to its limited storage capacity, people can no more rely on internal RAM. Therefore, this promotes a drastic need for technology to make it possible for anyone to access their data anywhere anytime. As a result, Mobile Cloud Computing facilitates mobile users with its enticing technology by providing its on-demand and scalable services. But privacy and security are the main concern for a mobile user in the modern era. Thus, issues regarding security can be divided into cloud security and mobile network user’s security, respectively. However, the primary focus of this study is to analyze how to secure the user's data in a mobile cloud. Leading to objectives, the current study presents a comprehensive analysis of existing techniques that can be considered for securing data in MCC efficiently. Moreover, this work will contribute a state-of-the-art roadmap to research and development communities for the right selection of proposed approach.
