User data on cloud may contain personal information like phone numbers, e-mail id, passwords, ATM pin numbers and etc., which may be misused by miscreants. With growing technology and increasing number of users, the risk to the data also increases. Traditional security techniques include encrypting the user data before uploading which may not work quite efficient for some applications. To overcome this disadvantage, the self destructing data systems came into light. Self destructing system integrates cryptographic techniques to ensure data security.
