Cloud computing-an expeditiously growing area. It's observed continuous growth in trend of utilization of cloud for usage of massive database storage. This has resulted in increase of security related issues to control and/or to avoid unauthorized accessibility of data/database that is stored on cloud. Various encryption techniques and algorithms are used to facilitate confidentiality. Drawback is only cryptographic techniques are not satisfactory. This paper sketches an architecture where techniques of cryptography in combination with access control policies are utilized strengthen security.
