Cloud computing is envisioned as the next-generation technology. It is an Internet based technology where quality services are provided to users including data and software, on remote servers. Advantages of cloud computing includes creating and storing data at remote servers, hence utilizing the client resource to the minimum level. But this advantage implicitly contains drawback of data security and privacy vulnerabilities. There are a number of algorithms and methodologies available for achieving data security in cloud computing. In this paper, the authors look at the current researches related to data security issues like integrity and confidentiality. In particular, they will discuss how to secure client's data on remote cloud servers.
