Privacy Enhanced DigiLocker using Ciphertext-Policy Attribute-Based Encryption

Puneet Bakshi, Sukumar Nandi


Recently, Government of India has taken several initiatives to make India digitally strong such as to provide each resident a unique digital identity, referred to as Aadhaar, and to provide several online e-Governance services based on Aadhaar such as DigiLocker. DigiLocker is an online service which provides a shareable private storage space on public cloud to its subscribers. Although DigiLocker ensures traditional security such as data integrity and secure data access, privacy of e-documents are yet to addressed. Ciphertext-Policy Attribute-Based Encryption (CP-ABE) can improve data privacy but the right implementation of it has always been a challenge. This paper pressents a scheme to implement privacy enhanced DigiLocker using CP-ABE.
