Abstract

This paper addresses the issue of securing information stored on a distributed storage system from a passive eavesdropping attack. The security notion is perfect secrecy, i.e., the system is said to be secure only if the mutual information between the stored information and the observations at the adversary is zero. The paper summarizes state of the art on securing repair-efficient distributed storage systems. Then, storage systems that employ locally repairable codes with minimum bandwidth regenerating codes as local codes (MBR-LRCs) are investigated. A secure file size upper bound and a construction of secure MBR-LRCs are provided. These two are shown to match under special cases, establishing the secrecy capacity of these systems.
