In a cloud data storage system, the data owners would wish to specify the policies as to who can access their data and the cloud providers are required to correctly enforce the policies that the data owners have specified. In order to enforce the specified access control policies before putting the data onto the cloud, the data owners can encrypt the data in the way that only users that the owners wished to allow as specified in the access control policies are able to decrypt and access the data. In this paper, we propose trust models to reason about and to improve the security for stored data in cloud storage systems that use cryptographic RBAC schemes. The trust models provide an approach for the owners and roles to determine the trustworthiness of individual roles and users, respectively, in the RBAC system. The proposed trust models consider role inheritance and hierarchy in the evaluation of trustworthiness of roles. We present a design of a trust-based cloud storage system, which shows how the trust models can be integrated into a system that uses cryptographic RBAC schemes. We have also considered practical application scenarios and illustrated how the trust evaluations can be used to reduce the risks and to enhance the quality of decision making by data owners and roles of cloud storage service.
