Study on Data Security in Cloud Architecture Based on Kerberos authentication System

Authors(1) :-Shital A. Salve

Now Technological expansions in cloud computing due to increased connectivity and exponentially blooming data has resulted in journey towards cloud architecture. Cloud computing is technology where the users’ can use high services in form of software that reside on different servers and access data from all over the world. Cloud storage is allows users to access and store their data anywhere. It also guarantees best usage of the available resources. With a capable technology like this, it certainly abdicates users’ privacy, putting new security threats towards the certitude of data in cloud. The security threats such as preservation of data integrity, data hiding and data safety concerns when the issue of cloud security bring up. In this research paper, we have studied design for cloud computing architecture which ensures secured movement of data at client and server end. We have used the Authentication Kerberos protocol mechanism for Authentication of Client.
