Cloud computing has great prospective of benefitting rigorous computational supremacy to the civilization society at reduced price. It facilitates consumers amid restricted computational assets to subcontract their bulky computational work assignments to the cloud, and cost-effectively have the benefit of the immense computational supremacy, bandwidth, storage, and even suitable software that can be pooled in a pay-per-use manner. Regardless of the tremendous acceptance, security and privacy is

Delighting the cloud since an inherently timid insecure computing stage from the perspective of the cloud consumers, in this work we devise cloud computing life cycle model to facilitate not only to defend confidential information by permitting computations with encrypted records, but also shield consumers from malevolent performances by permitting the validation of the computational outcome. Such a scheme of broad-spectrum of protected computational subcontracting lately shown to be viable in hypothesis, but to devise method to facilitate practically efficient also remains as an extremely challenging task. Focusing on engineering and computing approach for minimization tasks, this paper proposes widely applicable method through proper design of the secure model for implementing the security measures in the cloud life cycle model using the software engineering approach. Cloud computing is an maturing fashion of computing where applications, information and resources are provided to users as a services over the network and these services are accessed over the web, personal computers, notepads, tablets, main frame computers and mobile apps connected to communication network, while the business related application software and customer data are stored on servers at a isolated geographical location different from customers location, where the control is vested with the service provider. Cloud Computing services are categorized as SaaS, DSaaS, IaaS and PaaS[1] .
