Cloud Computing and Homomorphic Encryption

Contributed by Vicki Holzknecht

Cloud Computing has recently gained quite a bit of momentum throughout the technology community. The Cloud is intertwined in everyday living via mobility platforms, social networking, email, accessing cloud based applications, the list goes on for miles. Cloud Computing allows for services to be delivered by simply having an Internet connection. When encrypted data is sent to the cloud is it truly secure? How safe is the Cloud? The research within this paper will explain how a form of encryption known as homomorphic can be interlaced into the software for truly encrypting data without it ever being decrypted when stored within the cloud.
