Secure File Storage On Cloud Using Hybrid Cryptography

Download Document/Synopsis
Now a day’s cloud computing is used in many areas like industry, military colleges etc to storing huge amount of data. We can retrieve data from cloud on request of user. To store data on cloud we have to face many issues. To provide the solution to these issues there are n number of ways. Cryptography and steganography techniques are more popular now a day’s for data security. Use of a single algorithm is not effective for high level security to data in cloud computing. In this paper we have introduced new security mechanism using symmetric key cryptography algorithm and steganography. In this proposed system AES, DES, RC2 algorithms are used to provide block wise security to data. LSB steganography technique is introduced for key information security. Key information contains which part of file is encrypted using by which algorithm and key. File is splited into 3 parts. Each and every part of file is encrypted using different algorithm. All parts of file are encrypted simultaneously with the help of multithreading technique. Data encryption Keys are inserted into cover image using LSB technique. Stego image is send to valid receiver using email. For file decryption purpose reverse process of encryption is applied.

  • The file is completely secure as the file is being encrypted not by just using one but 3 encryption algorithm.
  • The key is also safe as it embeds the key in image using LSB.
