Cloud Computing Assignment On Big Data Security Issues

s The first research question deals with the way in which big data can be processed efficiently alongside secure through incorporation of Amazon Cloud, Mapreduce framework and Hive whereas the second question deals with effectiveness of MetaCloudStorage Framework in processing and securing the data. How can BigData be processed faster and secure integrating Amazon Cloud, Mapreduce framework and Hive? How effective is MetaCloudStorage Framework in processing and securing the data? Methodology The research is based upon finding out the security challenges faced using Big Data in Cloud Computing, the experimental method has been deemed accurate for this study. In this study proposed research, the chosen research method would aid in experiencing certain benefits as well. Firstly, the chosen method is cost-effective as it would use the AWS (Amazon Web Services) for understanding the categorization of the Data into three levels. Furthermore, using MetaCloudDataStorage security architecture can be proposed for the research to protect the Big Data in Cloud Computing. The classification of the Data includes Normal, Critical and Sensitive and each categorized data would be stored in a different data center. The chosen interface of the MetaCloudDataStorage will redirect the user request efficiently towards the appropriate datacenter available in the Cloud that is offered by varied vendors. To process the log files, the AWS CloudTrail has been incorporated in the proposed methodology and the AWS Key Management Service (KMS) is integrated with the former. It aids in delivering the log files into an Amazon S3 bucket. With the help of effective API, the CloudTrail can be integrated with any kind of application. The AWS CloudTrail also helps in maintaining the API call time and the IP address of the caller. In this methodology, the datacenters have been divided in the form of a sequence of n parts and each part is represented by part k (k (1, n)), and m different storage providers will be used to store this and each provider is identified in the form of provider l (l (1, m)). Furthermore, m (number of providers) is always far lesser than n (parts of the datacenter) and belongs to organizations such as Google, Amazon, and Salesforce. Storing Big Data would form a unique storage path- Mapping Storage Path = {Data ((P1(M1, M2 ... Mr.)) (P2(M1, M2 ... Ms.)) ... (Pn (M1, M2 ... Mt))}; where P- storage provider M- physical storage media Due to the large size of Big Data, encrypting is impossible and hence the proposed methodology has suggested a cryptographic value known as cryptographic virtual mapping of the Big Data. Therefore, this proposed research has suggested protecting the mapping of the various data elements to each providers using the MetaCloudDataStorage interface instead of securing the Big Data itself.

With the help of Map function, the huge size of input data is split into key, value> pairs.

The Apache Hive is an open source software running on top of Hadoop in the Amazon EMR. The architecture Hive has been used to process the stored log files that have been stored in the Amazon S3 such as- 05:05:2020,56,address 05:05:2020,67,index 06:05:2020,47,sponsored The data from the AWS would be fetched using the following Hive command- hive> select count(*) from bank details where Time >= 40; Research Constraints The time for completing was less and hence it could not be properly conducted. Furthermore, there was a lack of data availability and accessibility. There was also elasticity and scalability of the data issues and it is yet to be determined whether the proposed framework would work for all sectors or not.

The Map Reduce framework has been used to gain information regarding the number of users that were logged on into the cloud data center. It has suggested protecting the mapping of various data elements for each provider with the use of MetaCloudDataStorage security interface. The future work is the extension of the proposed MetaCloudDataStorage security Architecture for real-time processing for the streaming of data. Total word count: 3909?
