Abstract
Mobile devices are prevalent for numerous military and commercial applications, and require secure peer-to-peer file sharing without a centralized authority. With risk of device compromise, complete system files cannot be stored on a device, since an adversary can attack the data-at-rest, and eventually obtain the original file. McQ has developed an approach using an innovative secret sharing approach, custom distributed file sharing system, and lightweight communications security to provide a complete solution to the data-at-rest problem for resource constrained embedded systems. This innovative approach scales to large number of network devices, without a single point of failure, and without burdening the user. This approach will be refined during Phase I by selecting and optimizing the required secret sharing technique, refining the file storage system design, and developing a conceptual design of the system.
