A Framework to Enhance Cryptographic Parameter for Data In Cloud
Cloud computing is a forthcoming revolution in information technology (IT) industry because of its performance, accessibility, low cost and many other luxuries. It provides gigantic storage for data and faster computing to customers over the internet. Cloud computing is a computing model in which tasks are assigned to a combination of connections, software and services accessed over a network. It essentially shifts the data base and application software to the large data centre where the management of data and services may not be completely trustworthy. A CSF (Cloud Security framework) comprising of different techniques and specialized procedures is proposed that can efficiently protect the data from the beginning to the end, i.e., from the owner to the cloud and then to the user .This strategy followed to protect the data, utilizes various techniques such as classification, Indexing of data. Encrypting the data carry forward by through 256-bit AES of SSL, Generation of MAC and XML signature. In this CSF approach, certain drawbacks in the existing system have been overcome by using cluster based index algorithm instead of sensitive rating and 256-bit AES instead of 128-bit RC4 of SSL.
