Trust and Role Based Access Control to Mitigate the Malicious Activities of Authenticated Users in Mobile Cloud Computing
One of the emerging technologies of recent years is the mobile cloud computing, which aims to
provide the vital need for richer applications and services of constrained resources. The major
challenging issue of the mobile cloud computing is to provide the security with less overhead. In
literature various authenticated key agreement mechanisms have been designed to address the
security issues, as authenticated key agreement is the simple vital process to incorporate the security
in computing technologies. However, there is a need to consider the authorization of the users, as the
authenticated users may behave maliciously. Thus, the paper aim is to design the access control
mechanism to mitigate the malicious activities causes by authenticated users by the computing the
trust based on the user behavior. The results are showing that the proposed access control
mechanism accurately detect and remove the malicious users.
