Securing Data Storage in Cloud with Generating OTP using SHA Algorithm

Authors(2) :-Dr. T. Lucia Agnes Beena, S. Jegan Benish

Cloud services have grown very quickly over the past couple of years, giving consumers and companies the chance to put services, resources and infrastructures in the hands of a provider. There is a big security concern when using cloud services. Security is very important in Cloud Computing since people and companies store confidential data in the Cloud. It must also be easy to use the services provided, since cloud services have so many users with different technical background.Since Cloud Computing is rest on internet, various security issues like privacy, data integrity, confidentiality, authentication and trust are encountered. This paper describes an enhanced approach for the data security model in cloud environment. The proposed data security model includes generation of onetime password (OTP) using SHA(Secure Hash Algorithm)for user authentication process.
