    Abstract

    :

    In our day to day life, the number of mobile users are increasing. The users wants to use the resources on the go and with the help of their mobile devices. The use of the mobile devices and the cloud computing is vulnerable to several attacks and hence, in this paper the secure authentication mechanism using the Smart Card Generator (SCG) services are proposed. The proposed scheme provides the security to the mobile cloud computing environment. The users accesses the cloud computing environment with the mobile devices and hence, they get permissions from the cloud service providers by getting the private keys from the service providers. The security is provided by the multiple service providers to accesses the multiple cloud servers. The security of the proposed authentication scheme is based on the bilinear pairing cryptosystem and the dynamic nonce generation. It has several advantages such as: (1) mutual authentication, (2) user anonymity, (3) user traceability. The Smart Card Generator (SCG) service is the trusted service provided by the cloud computing environment. The verification tables are not essential, when using the SCG. The SCG is responsible for distributing the private key between the cloud servers and the mobile users. The SCG is not responsible for the single user authentication process, the time and the memory space is reduced by the proposed scheme. The performance of the proposed scheme is analyzed by giving the formal security proof and showed that the proposed authentication scheme for the distributed mobile cloud computing environment is secure and efficient.
