The idea of this publication is to integrate a transaction management into the cloud provider interface that enforces the invariant that cloud storage areas can only be released to other customers after they have been securely wiped (i.e., unrecoverably deleted eliminating all traces of confidential data). We propose to integrate the transaction facility in the management software of cloud storage (or storage area networks) to make the wiping routine transparent to any other service and therefore require minimal changes in the cloud infrastructure. We include an Leakage Resilient Object Storage as preferred embodiment, yet stress that the idea works for any storage type.
