Abstract -
Cloud computing technology extended data centers to the cloud; adding new possibilities for devices to access information in anytime and anywhere with reduced costs, faster deployment and maximized flexibility. Although, ensuring high levels of performance that would raise a new security challenges and concerns to be handled. However, most of the cloud computing service providers deploy security policies for data protection. But, in the client side many security approaches can be used to ensure high levels of security, which would assure security of data in the client and provider sides. In this article, security challenges are defined and security model is proposed for handling realistic security holes for cloud computing. The proposed model relies on applying high secure mechanism by using strong factor authentication and encryption process using ElGamal algorithm. Also, a new security rule is proposed by using Serpent encryption algorithm for encrypting data before being uploaded to the cloud storage. Moreover, a Secure Authentication System (SAS) was Implemented, Applying the proposed security approaches, SAS proved to provide more security compared to recently used ones.
