Vidhya.  2018.  TIGER HASH KERBEROS BIOMETRIC BLOWFISH USER AUTHENTICATION FOR SECURED DATA ACCESS IN CLOUD. 2018 2nd International Conference on 2018 2nd International Conference on I-SMAC (IoT in Social, Mobile, Analytics and Cloud) (I-SMAC)I-SMAC (IoT in Social, Mobile, Analytics and Cloud) (I-SMAC). :145–151.

Cloud computing is a standard architecture for providing computing services among servers and cloud user (CU) for preserving data from unauthorized users. Therefore, the user authentication is more reliable to ensure cloud services accessed only by a genuine user. To improve the authentication accuracy, Tiger Hash-based Kerberos Biometric Blowfish Authentication (TH-KBBA) Mechanism is introduced for accessing data from server. It comprises three steps, namely Registration, Authentication and Ticket Granting. In the Registration process, client enrolls user details and stores on cloud server (CS) using tiger hashing function. User ID and password is given by CS after registration. When client wants to access data from CS, authentication server (AS) verifies user identity by sending a message. When authenticity is verified, AS accepts user as authenticated user and convinces CS that user is authentic. For convincing process, AS generates a ticket and encrypted using Blowfish encryption. Encrypted ticket is sent back to user. Then, CU sends message to server containing users ID and encrypted ticket. Finally, the server decrypts ticket using blowfish decryption and verifies the user ID. If these two ID gets matched, the CS grants requested data to the user. Experimental evaluation of TH-KBBA mechanism and existing methods are carried out with different factors such as Authentication accuracy, authentications time and confidentiality rate with respect to a number of CUs and data.

The objective of the Honeypot security system is a mechanism to identify the unauthorized users and intruders in the network. The enterprise level security can be possible via high scalability. The whole theme behind this research is an Intrusion Detection System and Intrusion Prevention system factors accomplished through honeypot and honey trap methodology. Dynamic Configuration of honey pot is the milestone for this mechanism. Eight different methodologies were deployed to catch the Intruders who utilizing the unsecured network through the unused IP address. The method adapted here to identify and trap through honeypot mechanism activity. The result obtained is, intruders find difficulty in gaining information from the network, which helps a lot of the industries. Honeypot can utilize the real OS and partially through high interaction and low interaction respectively. The research work concludes the network activity and traffic can also be tracked through honeypot. This provides added security to the secured network. Detection, prevention and response are the categories available, and moreover, it detects and confuses the hackers.
Kaaniche, N., Laurent, M..  2017.  A blockchain-based data usage auditing architecture with enhanced privacy and availability. 2017 IEEE 16th International Symposium on Network Computing and Applications (NCA). :1–5.

Recent years have witnessed the trend of increasingly relying on distributed infrastructures. This increased the number of reported incidents of security breaches compromising users' privacy, where third parties massively collect, process and manage users' personal data. Towards these security and privacy challenges, we combine hierarchical identity based cryptographic mechanisms with emerging blockchain infrastructures and propose a blockchain-based data usage auditing architecture ensuring availability and accountability in a privacy-preserving fashion. Our approach relies on the use of auditable contracts deployed in blockchain infrastructures. Thus, it offers transparent and controlled data access, sharing and processing, so that unauthorized users or untrusted servers cannot process data without client's authorization. Moreover, based on cryptographic mechanisms, our solution preserves privacy of data owners and ensures secrecy for shared data with multiple service providers. It also provides auditing authorities with tamper-proof evidences for data usage compliance.
