Abstract

At present, sharing of files and other media is a common use case which involves cloud storage services. However, the privacy of cloud services has become questionable as certain free cloud service providers use personal content for analytical purposes. Also, in order to share content over cloud storages, local files must be uploaded to cloud services, even for minor use cases such as directory browsing. This paper presents a novel solution which provides similar sharing capabilities to that of existing cloud services without having to store content in a cloud storage. The solution enables direct content browsing, uploading and downloading using a web interface. The solution also provides the capability to generate links for locally stored content in desktop or personal computers. The presented solution utilizes peer-to-peer networking technologies which are scalable and more secure. Furthermore, the performance measures indicate competitive results in comparison with existing cloud service providers for content sharing.
