Cloud computing is a progressive computing worldview, which empowers adaptable, on-request, and ease use of Information Technology assets. However, the information transmitted to some cloud servers, and various protection concerns are arising out of it. Different plans given the property-based encryption have been proposed to secure the Cloud Storage. In any case, most work spotlights on the information substance security and the get to control, while less consideration towards the benefit control and the character protection. In this paper, a semi-anonymous benefit control conspires AnonyControl to address the information protection, as well as the client character security in existing access control plans. AnonyControl decentralizes the central authority to restrain the character spillage and accordingly accomplishes semi-anonymity. Furthermore, it likewise sums up the document get to control to the benefit control, by which advantages of all operations on the cloud information managed in a fine-grained way. Along these lines, display the AnonyControl-F, which ultimately keeps the character spillage and accomplish the full secrecy. Our security assessment demonstrates that both AnonyControl and AnonyControl-F are secure under the decisional bilinear Diffie-Hellman presumption, and our execution assessment shows the attainability of our plans.

Index Terms: Anonymity, multi-authority, attribute-based encryption.
