A virtual unlimited in size, and secure file system embedded in a smart card

Abstract : With the convergence of technologies and the increasing number of mobile terminals, users will be more and more willing to access their files from everywhere. There thus should be : (1) a way to have a virtual globally accessible location to store data; (2) a way to carry an entry point to this virtual system on the go ; (3) a trust system to make this storage secure. This is what we achieve in the FSOnCard project by providing a virtual secure File System On Card. The resulting system is virtually unlimited in size, it is accessible from everywhere, and it is secure. You can carry it in a smart card in your pocket while on the go. The project relies on two main things: the Fuse framework and a Smart Card. The basic principle is to allow a Java Card to encrypt and decrypt the contents of files in a transparent manner for the user. The resulting cyphered files are stored either on a local file system or on a remote location, in which case it can be accessed from anywhere provided the smart card is available.
