Mobile Data Offloading – Challenges and Solution
Mobile cloud computing is emerging at the rapid rate with evolutions in IT industries but various challenges are also coming up during data and task migration from mobile devices to cloud. Major issue confronted by mobile cloud computing is security of data during offloading It requires awareness of growing security threats associated with data offloading and strategic planning to resolve the issue. In this paper, we bring out various security issues subjected to mobile data offloading and challenges during computational data offloading on clouds. By virtue of our study on mobile cloud computing and its related threats and the avenues to tackle these issues we developed an agent based framework for data offloading in a secure and energy efficient manner. Using this proposed framework we can enhance the level of security and use this as a tool to address many security issues arising during computational data offloading from mobile to cloud.
