SoloEncrypt: A Smartphone Storage Enhancement Security Model for Securing users Sensitive Data


Objectives: To enhance the storage space of smart phones by using cloud infrastructure for storage. However, the biggest challenge is data security. Methods/Statistical Analysis: Existing Android smart phones are studied and a new security model named Solo-Encrypt security architecture is proposed. Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) algorithm of 256 bits key length was used to encrypt and decrypt user sensitive data using cloud. Findings: Three (3) Android devices were used and the experimental results are presented based on encryption time, decryption time and throughput on each device. The results showed that the proposed work can effectively protect user sensitive data with speed using cloud. Application/Improvement: Smart phones data are moved to cloud storage in encrypted form, smart phones storage are enhanced by making more storage spaces available for use and security of user sensitive data is improved.
