Cloud Computing presents a distinct way to share distributed resources and services with the help of internet. Cloud computing includes sharing of distributed resources via internet-an open network; therefore security becomes an essential issue. A secure data transmission and key management is needed in cloud computing, to overcome such problems. Securing information is the key issue in the field of network security. Cryptography is one of the most effective way to enhance information security. Biometric cryptography is a technique which uses biometric features to encrypt the data and overcome the defects of traditional cryptography. In this paper, a biometric based encryption and decryption scheme, in which a master key is generated using whole/partial hash portion of combined sender and receiver finger print.
