Abstract: Cloud computing is the next big thing in information technology after the internet; some say it's a metaphor for the internet. It is an Internet-based computing technology in which software, shared resources, and information is delivered to consumers and devices on-demand and on a pay-per-use basis. Even though the cloud is becoming increasingly popular, usability and respectability issues, data protection and privacy issues, and other security issues continue to be major roadblocks in the field of cloud computing. The primary concern for cloud storage is privacy and security. Encryption is a well-known technology for safeguarding sensitive information. The use of a combination of public and private key encryption to conceal sensitive user data, as well as cipher text retrieval. The paper investigates the viability of using an encryption algorithm for data security and privacy in cloud storage.
Keywords: Online storage, cypher text retrieval, Privacy and encryption techniques.
