Cloud storage public services changed the way of the user access in the internet i.e. (1) Click (2) Download (3) Install (4) Use (time taking 4 steps) to click and use (time saving 2 steps). This easier accessibility for wider users lead to a threat of data confidentiality. Encrypting the data before uploading into public clouds is not possible all the times. So to provide the confidentiality of stored public cloud data, the encryption mechanism inside the cloud should be able to support the access of encrypted data. For balancing the security and efficiency we are proposing a public key encryption scheme for generating a secret key for both encryption and decryption using ASCII codes in the encrypting process.
