Cloud computing is an emerging technology where all the computing resources are shared on the cloud rather than having local servers or personal devices to handle applications. Encrypting data residing on the cloud database is required to prevent unauthorized access of confidential and critical information and the subsequent modification of the information for personal benefit. As all the organizational information resides on the computers, security of this data is of utmost importance. Shamir's secret sharing algorithm is one successful way of encrypting the data.
