Cloud storage is described as a place to store data on the net as opposed to on-premises arrays. It is well-known that cloud computing has many ability advantages and lots of organization applications and big data are migrating to public or hybrid cloud storage. However, from the consumers’ attitude, cloud computing safety issues, particularly records protection and privacy safety problems, continue to be the number one inhibitor for adoption of cloud computing services. This paper describes the problem of building secure computational services for encrypted information in the cloud storage without decrypting the encrypted data. There are many distinct sorts of attacks and threats executed on cloud systems. Present day cloud storage service companies inclusive of Google Drive and Dropbox utilizes AES-256 encryption algorithm. Although, it is far nonetheless considered a secure algorithm to use presently, a brief look through history shows that each algorithm gets cracked subsequently. Therefore, it meets the yearning of computational encryption algorithmic aspiration model that could enhance the security of data for privacy, confidentiality, and availability of the users. The research method covers two principal levels, which are literature assessment and randomness tests on large number of data using NIST Statistical Test Suite which has been developed by National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). A studies assessment in this paper is made to decide if the research challenge has effectively able to mitigate common cloud storage carrier assaults. The outcomes from this paper affords insights to cutting-edge protection implementation and their vulnerabilities, as well as future enhancements that may be made to further solidify cloud storage solutions.
