The emergence cloud computing in the computing arena has had major effect in way of the people utilize computing resources. It is being heralded by many as the new computing paradigm, coming with disruptive technologies which are expected to foster all sorts of innovations. However, further investigations suggest that cloud computing it is nothing new, rather an evolution of different existing technologies creatively integrated together. Therefore, it has inherited strengths and weaknesses of existing technologies, but has lowered the entry bar to computing making it an interesting proposition. In this paper, the authors propose a security wrapper, which affords enough protection to the classified data as it flows in the cloud.
