Abstract


Cloud based service provider are at its top of its services for various applications, as their services are very much reachable from anywhere anytime in current days. It is responsibility of the company that the Cloud storage is owned and maintained by themselves keeping the data available and accessible, and the physical environment protected and running. Could storage provider seem to be uncertain of confidentiality in many cases, as we need to limit ourselves on trust to a third party. Keeping our sensitive data ready to access any time anywhere with preventing any information leakage is a challenging task. Cryptography in this scenario plays an important role, providing security for information to protect valuable information resources on intranets, Internet and the cloud. In addition, Homomorphic cryptosystem is a form of Cryptography where some specific computation can be performed over the cipher text producing a resultant cipher text which, when decrypted, equals the result of operations carry out on the plaintext. With help of this unique property of homomorphism cryptography we proposed a system to keep sensitive information in encrypted form in the cloud storage/service provider and used those data as whenever we require. The scheme proposed here is designed for a secure online voting system on Android platform and voted information is encrypted and stored those in the cloud.
