In Database-as-a-Service (DAS) computing paradigm, data owners delegate database management tasks to service provider. Since the service provider is untrusted, query authentication becomes an essential issue before database outsourcing. In previous research, various Authentication Data Structures (ADS) have been proposed. However, most of them are either disk-based or static. Considering service provider usually owns large memory and powerful processors, in this paper we propose a dynamic main
