With the development and application of blockchain technology, more and more fields are beginning to use blockchains for industrial innovation, In recent years. At the same time, the data integrity verification techniques based on blockchain have also attracted wide attention of researchers. However, the state-of-the-art schemes are only using the structure of the blockchain on centralized server which cannot leverage the characteristics of the blockchain and resist malicious modification attacks. In addition, the centralized blockchain structure introduces additional storage and computing costs. In this paper, we propose a decentralized verifiable outsourcing framework based on blockchain networks, in which no administrators are required to be in charge of auditing and recording data changes.
