Abstract [en]

Data geolocation in the cloud is becoming an increasingly pressing problem, aggravated by incompatible legislation in different jurisdictions and compliance requirements of data owners. In this work we present a mechanism allowing cloud users to control the geographical location of their data, stored or processed in plaintext on the premises of Infrastructure-as-a-Service cloud providers. We use trusted computing principles and remote attestation to establish platform state. We enable cloud users to confine plaintext data exclusively to the jurisdictions they specify, by sealing decryption keys used to obtain plaintext data to the combination of cloud host geolocation and platform state. We provide a detailed description of the implementation as well as performance measurements on an open source cloud infrastructure platform using commodity hardware.
