The rapid growth of ubiquitous technology has created a tremendous enhancement in the area of mobile computing. Due to the limited storage capabilities on mobile devices, iSCSl (Internet Small Computer Interface), a remote storage access system would be one of the possible solutions to resolve this problem. However, when security of the storage data running over the storage area network is taken into consideration, it invariably raises the issue of security. This paper aims to design a new lightweight secure iSCSI-based remote storage for mobile devices. A security module which is suitable for mobile devices was proposed on top of the solution on the current limitations of default iSCSI security mechanism. Relevant experiments are carried out and the results reveal the efficiency of proposed algorithm in which it introduces over 100% Read/Write performance improvement compared with the IPsec approach.
