Self Destructive Data Security System: Towards an Improved Platform for Data Protection

Akpan Abasiama G, Umeakuka Chinelo Victoria


Today’s technical and legal landscape presents formidable challenges to personal data privacy. Data protection attempts to ensure the security of computer-processed data from unauthorized access, from destructive user actions and from computer failure. This paper validates a self destructive data security system using files of different formats and a secure server to make an improvement on the existing system. All the data and their copies become destroyed or unreadable when an attempt to copy the file from the secure server is made. This is implemented using php programming language and a prototype methodology. The performance evaluation of the system shows a faster way to upload and download data to be stored and encrypted on the server.
