Nowadays, many individuals and organizations tend to outsource their data to a cloud storage for reducing the burden of data storage and maintenance. However, a cloud provider may be untrustworthy. The cloud thus leads to a numerous security challenges: data availability, data integrity, and data confidentiality. In this paper, we focus on data availability and data integrity because they are the prerequisites of the existence of a cloud system. The approach of this paper is the network coding-based Proof of Retrievability (POR) scheme which allows a client to check whether his/her data stored on the cloud servers are intact. Although many existing network coding-based PORs have been proposed, most of them still incur high costs in data check and data repair, and cannot prevent the small corruption attack which is a common attack in the POR scheme. This paper proposes a new network coding-based POR using the dispersal coding technique, named the ND-POR (Network coding - Dispersal coding POR) to improve the efficiency in data check and data repair and to protect against the small corruption attack.
