Advances in cloud computing have allowed volume rendering tasks, typically done by volume ray-casting, to be outsourced to cloud data centers. The availability of volume data and rendered images (which can contain important information such as the disease information of a patient) to a third-party cloud provider, however, presents security and privacy challenges. This paper addresses these challenges by proposing a secure cloud-based volume ray-casting framework that distributes the rendering tasks among the data centers and hides the information that is exchanged between the server and a data center, between two data centers, and between a data center and the client by using Shamir's secret sharing, such that none of the data centers has enough information to know the secret data and/or rendered image. Experiments and analyses show that our framework is highly secure and requires low computation cost.
