Privacy, security and trust issues are current challenges in cloud storage,  hence organisations and individuals are hesitant to adopt the cloud. Several approaches have been proposed to mitigate these security challenges including use of encryption schemes, multi-cloud architectures, secure authentication and authorization schemes,  and advanced identity management protocols. Nevertheless, some attacks against cloud storages are still successful hence the need for more secure approaches. In this seminar, we consider current secure storage proposals such as proof-of-ownership file access, crypto-currency secure cloud storages and peer-to-peer networking.
