File Tracking For Mobile Devices
Su, Gao 1990-
Since 2010, the smart device has become an integral part of people’s daily lives. The popularity of smart devices has increased dramatically. However, as the number of devices owned by an individual user increases, so does the risk of data leakage and loss. This problem has started to draw attention because the data contained on smart devices tends to be personal or sensitive in nature. Many people have so much data on their devices that they have no idea as to what they are missing when a device is lost. Although there are already some solutions for data recovery, a data backup system on a remote server, these solutions are not accessible in the non-Internet environment. Development of a data recovery system that is accessible in the non-Internet environment is essential because of the constraints of mobile devices, such as unreliable network. This research proposes an architecture that allows the data recovery in both Internet (cloud) and Non-Internet (local) network by using diﬀerent connection technologies. A data tracking mechanism has also been designed to monitor data ﬂow among multiple devices, such as the cloud server, mobile devices, and tablets. Additionally, a synchronization system has been developed to ensure the consistency of tracking information. By designing and implementing this architecture, the two problems regarding to the data: "what is where" and "who has what" are resolved.
