Storing of data in the cloud (Cloud Computing) offers an effective and quick way of granting access to ones information from a third party service provider, providing business expansion at a lesser cost. Cloud data storage systems provide means to store bigger data in storage servers [1]. The data stored in the cloud are stored and accessed from the internet over a longer time, making data exposed to hackers to steal stored and transmitted data over the cloud environment, leading to data integrity loss and users of cloud data unhappy. This paper proposed a novel cryptographic techniques to enhance the security in cloud environment and reduce the time associated with cryptographic encryption to a minimum.
