Data security is a major concern in cloud computing. It must satisfy three goals of security in computing—integrity, confidentiality, and availability. User or cloud service provider (CSP) can perform operations on cloud data without performing decryption by using homomorphic encryption. Many algorithms are available for homomorphic encryption. These algorithms are generating large size cipher text. In this chapter, small-size cipher text homomorphic encryption algorithm is proposed. This scheme is a modified scheme proposed by Dijk et al. The experimentation is performed on data stored on DynamoDB of Amazon Web Services (AWS) public cloud. All arithmetic computations are performed on low-size encrypted data. Data can be downloaded on users machine as per the requirement and then decrypt it.
