Outsourcing data into the cloud promises several advantages like reduced costs of hardware and maintenance, scalability and flexibility and accessibility from virtually everywhere. Security of data however is still a major open issue, in particular, when looking at data confidentiality and privacy. These concerns are an obstacle for a wide-spread use of cloud computing for example for companies (who might want to outsource business-critical data) or patients (who might want to use electronic health records). This course discusses several theoretical approaches to achieve data confidentiality and privacy for data outsourcing.
