Cloud computing platforms deliver critical business applications in large part because of sales commitments to security and privacy. With the help of cloud computing, large pools of resources can be connected via private or public networks to provide dynamically scalable infrastructures for application, data and file storage. Additionally, the costs of computing, application hosting, content storage and delivery can be significantly reduced. However, problems arise with cloud computing concerning data privacy, security and authenticity. Hence, our research paper presents an efficient method for providing data-storage security in cloud computing using a new simple symmetric key algorithm. This algorithm includes such important security services as key generation, encryption and decryption that are provided in cloud computing systems. The main scope of this paper is to solve the security issues in both cloud providers and cloud consumers using new cryptography methods.
