© 2013 IEEE. In medical cloud computing, a patient can remotely outsource her medical data to the cloud server. In this case, only authorized doctors are allowed to access the data since the medical data is highly sensitive. Before outsourcing, the data is commonly encrypted, where the corresponding secret key is sent to authorized doctors. However, performing searches on encrypted medical data is difficult without decryption. In this paper, we propose two Secure and Efficient Dynamic Searchable Symmetric Encryption (SEDSSE) schemes over medical cloud data. First, we utilize the secure k-Nearest Neighbor (kNN) and Attribute-Based Encryption (ABE) techniques to construct a dynamic searchable symmetric encryption scheme, which can achieve forward privacy and backward privacy simultaneously. These tow security properties are vital and very challenging in the area of dynamic searchable symmetric encryption. Then, we propose an enhanced scheme to solve the key sharing problem which widely exists in the kNN based searchable encryption scheme. Compared with existing proposals, our schemes are better in terms of storage, search and updating complexity. Extensive experiments demonstrate the efficiency of our schemes on storage overhead, index building, trapdoor generating and query.
