Recently, the security of heterogeneous multimedia data becomes a very critical issue, substantially with the proliferation of multimedia data and applications. Cloud computing is the hidden back-end for storing heterogeneous multimedia data. Notwithstanding that using cloud storage is indispensable, but the remote storage servers are untrusted. Therefore, one of the most critical challenges is securing multimedia data storage and retrieval from the untrusted cloud servers. This paper applies a Shamir Secrete-Sharing scheme and integrates with cloud computing to guarantee efficiency and security for sensitive multimedia data storage and retrieval. The proposed scheme can fully support the comprehensive and multilevel security control requirements for the cloud-hosted multimedia data and applications. In addition, our scheme is also based on a source transformation that provides powerful mutual interdependence in its encrypted representation—the Share Generator slices and encrypts the multimedia data before sending it to the cloud storage. The extensive experimental evaluation on various configurations confirmed the effectiveness and efficiency of our scheme, which showed excellent performance and compatibility with several implementation strategies.
