Security architecture and protocol for trust verifications regarding the integrity of files stored in cloud services

Have you considered the security of your files hosted in the cloud? Of course you have, and reputable providers provide a solid guarantee of safety. But what if you could monitor the status of your files as well as the behavior of your cloud service provider? In this 2018 paper published by Pinheiro et al., such a proposition is proven as practical. The authors demonstrate just that using architecture that includes a "protocol based on trust and encryption concepts to ensure cloud data integrity without compromising confidentiality and without overloading storage services." They conclude that not only is such monitoring able to be done efficiently and rapidly, but also the "architecture proved to be quite robust during the tests, satisfactorily responding to the fault simulations," including unplanned server shutdown.

Introduction to Laboratory Informatics

This is a collection of free online introductory laboratory informatics courses developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Association of Public Health Laboratories (APHL). The first two courses follow the journey of a specimen through the laboratory and explores the generation and transmission of data and results within and outside of the laboratory. A third course on laboratory informatics systems is in development. Participants can earn Professional Acknowledgment for Continuing Education® (P.A.C.E.®) credits upon completion.
