Confidentiality, Cloud storage, Cryptography, Privacy preserving, Security


Cloud computing environment is a network centered computing technique delivered to the users as a service. It mainly involves computing over the network where the program file or any application, run upon server in various locations at the identical time. Cloud computing accommodates huge data storage and computing capabilities to its users. The cloud storage service is considered to be the best quality cloud maintenance service. Cryptography is known as the skill of securing the confidential information from third party hackers. Both the parties over the insecure network can transfer files with each other by the ways of cryptographic techniques of the sensitive data files for maintaining the security and also privacy. The secrecy and concealment of data are considered an important issue of concern in cloud field.
