Cloud storage is a service involving cloud service providers providing storage space to customers. Cloud storage services have numerous advantages, including convenience, high computation, and capacity, thereby attracting users to outsource data in the cloud. However, users outsource data directly via cloud stage services that are unsafe when outsourcing data is sensitive for users. Therefore, cipher text-policy attribute-based encryption is a promising cryptographic solution in a cloud environment, and can be drawn up for access control by data owners (DO) to define access policy. Unfortunately, an outsourced architecture applied with attribute-based encryption introduces numerous challenges, including revocation. This issue is a threat to the data security of DO. Furthermore, highly secure and flexible cipher text-based attribute access control with role hierarchy user grouping in cloud storage is implemented by extending the KUNodes (revocation) storage identity-based encryption. Result is evaluated using Cloudsim, and our algorithm outperforms in terms of computational cost by consuming 32 MB for 150-MB files.
