Cloud computing is an Internet-based computing and next stage in evolution of the internet. It has received significant attention in recent years, but security issue is one of the major inhibitor in decreasing the growth of cloud computing. It essentially shifts the user data and application software to large datacenters i.e., cloud, which is remotely located, at which user does not have any control and the management of data may not be completely secure. However, this sole feature of the cloud computing introduce many security challenges which need to be resolved and understood clearly.
