Cloud Computing is storing and accessing data and programs over the Internet instead of personal computers. It is a computing paradigm shift where computing is moved away from personal computers or an individual server to a cloud of computers. Its flexibility, cost-effectiveness, and dynamically re-allocation of resources as per demand make it desirable. As desirable as it is, it has also created security challenges such as information leakage, account hijacking and denial of service. The

The proposed work is to develop a Software as a Service application to prevent information leakage by providing multifactor authentication, risk assessment, encryption using enhanced elliptic curve cryptography where a cryptographically secure random number generation is used to make the number unpredictable, data integrity, key management and secure disposal of information. The platform for deployment of the application is Google App Engine.
