Abstract—Owing to the convergence of home network, smart home technologies have been developing rapidly. However, all data generated from smart homes which might imply valuable information and be able to bring value-added outcome are not well utilized. Since it contains very private information, smart home users might want to avoid the chance to expose data from their living place. Moreover, few work concerns with how to deal with those valuable tentative but private data for further use. Motivated by this, we adapt cloud computing technology to smart home domain and design a framework which delivers a platform as a cloud computing service. The integrated framework we propose stores data generated from smart homes and provides these data for various services on the platform in a safer way to protect private data.
