Abstract: - Number of users stores their data on Cloud. Data storage security refers to the security of data on the storage media. So, Security is an important factor in cloud computing for ensuring clients data is placed on the secure mode in the cloud. Data must not be stolen by the third party so authentication of client becomes a mandatory task. In this paper, we proposed a new security scheme by using RSA & Twofish algorithm. In this work, both these techniques help to generate a secure key & this key is sending to user by mail service. One more feature of security is added and that is Signature. In this when user stores their data they have to enter a unique signature which will make our scheme more secure and hence the new security scheme helps to increase the security at cloud.
