Cloud computing is an auspicious computing model that empowers on-demand network access to a shared pool of computing resources. One of the services offered by cloud is moving data into the cloud. Cloud Providers offer storage space to consumers for storing their data. Data moves between cloud providers and consumers can be compromised by any malicious user.
