Outsourcing data to external providers has gained momentum with the advent of cloud computing. Encryption allows data confidentiality to be preserved when outsourcing data to untrusted external providers that may be compromised by attackers. However, encryption has to be applied in a way that still allows the external provider to evaluate queries received from the client. Even though confidential database-as-a-service (DaaS) is still an active field of research, various techniques already address this problem, which we call confidentiality preserving indexing approaches (CPIs). CPIs make individual tradeoffs between the functionality provided, i.e., the types of queries that can be evaluated, the level of protection achieved, and performance.In this paper, we present a taxonomy of requirements that CPIs have to satisfy in deployment scenarios including the required functionality and the required level of protection against various attackers. We show that the taxonomy?s underlying principles serve as a methodology to assess CPIs, primarily by linking attacker models to CPI security properties. By use of this methodology, we survey and assess ten previously proposed CPIs. ... mehr
