Abstract

With the rise of blockchain technology, peer-to-peer network system has once again caught people's attention. Peer-to-peer (P2P) is currently being implemented on various kind of decentralized systems such as InterPlanetary File System (IPFS). However, P2P file sharing network systems is not without its flaws. Data stored in the other nodes cannot be deleted by the owner and can only be deleted by other nodes themselves. Ensuring that personal data can be completely removed is an important issue to comply with the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) criteria. To improve P2Ps privacy and security, we propose a monitorable peer-to-peer file sharing mechanism that synchronizes with other nodes to perform file deletion and to generate the File Authentication Code (FAC) of each IPFS nodes in order to make sure the system synchronized correctly. The proposed mechanism can integrate with a consortium Blockchain to comply with GDPR.
