Oblivious RAM (ORAM) is a well-established technology to hide data access patterns from an untrusted storage system. Although research in ORAM has been spurred in the last few years with the irruption of cloud computing, it is still unclear whether ORAM is ready for the cloud. As we demonstrate in this short paper, there are still some important hurdles to be overcome. One of those is the standard block-based ORAM interface, which can become a timing side-channel when used as a substrate to implement higher level abstractions such as filesystems, personal storage services, etc., typically found in the cloud. We analyze this form of leakage and discuss some possible solutions to this problem, concluding that thwarting it in an efficient manner calls for further research.
