Abstract

Jigsaw Distributed File System (JigDFS) [3] is a secure P2P distributed file system. However, observations during implementation conveyed that JigDFS [3] has certain limitations. It [3] deals with all the files in a preprogrammed manner (which is rather obsolete) and takes impractically high file encoding time. This paper introduces "CASE-JigDFS", an improved JigDFS [3] network that is smart enough to distinguish between file attributes so as to dynamically manipulate data encryption and IDA parameters to intelligently utilize system’s resources.  The optimized network is best suited for mobile network devices viz.  Smart phones and PDAs. The results have been arrived at, by comparing processing time vs. file size plots for different file types for ’JigDFS’[3] and ’CASE-JigDFS’ networks.
