Abstract

Mobile Cloud Computing joins two complementary paradigms by allowing the migration of tasks and data from resource-constrained devices into remote servers with higher processing capabilities in an approach known as offloading. An essential aspect of any offloading solution is the privacy support of the information transferred among mobile devices and remote servers. A common solution to address privacy issues in data transmission is the use of encryption. Nevertheless, encryption algorithms impose additional processing tasks that impact both on the offloading performance and the power consumption of mobile devices. This paper presents a study on the impact of using cryptographic algorithms in the CAOS offloading platform. Results from experiments show that the encryption time represents 2.17% to 5.35% of the total offloading time depending on the amount of offloaded data, encryption key size, and the place to run the offloaded task. Similar behavior occurred regarding energy consumption.
