Battery-powered mobile devices are convenient to use anywhere and anytime. Nowadays maximum people using the mobile device, such as Smartphone, Tablet computers to use mobile services anytime and anywhere. Moreover, most of the Smartphone having wireless communication like Wi-Fi and 4G. For some applications, the requirement of computing power may be very high, but the actual configuration of mobile devices are very limited, such as CPU, memory, storage, and battery. Among these computational resources, bandwidth and battery are the most significant problems for Smartphone. Efficient Computational Offloading is the best solution for extending the usage of Smartphone by executing the resource-intensive task to offload from mobile to the remote cloud servers can extend processing capability and support for multiple categories of application. However, this technique is having difficulty in offloading the process to a remote cloud server without the proven security of entity verification. To deal with these challenges, here we are proposing new security protocol to authenticate mobile and cloud server with zero knowledge proof of authentication to verify the communication entities and recommends to offload the service. The proposed protocol will get verify by the University of Oxford developed verification tool Scyther.
