Immutable Log Storage as a Service

by   William Pourmajidi, et al.

Logs contain critical information about the quality of the rendered services on the Cloud and can be used as digital evidence. Hence, we argue that the critical nature of logs calls for immutability and verification mechanism without the presence of a single trusted party. In this paper, we propose a blockchain-based log system, called Logchain, which can be integrated with existing private and public blockchains. To validate the mechanism, we create Logchain as a Service (LCaaS) by integrating it with Ethereum public blockchain network. We show that the solution is scalable (being able to process 100 log files per second) and fast (being able to "seal" a log file in 23 seconds, on average).
