AbstractPeople across the globe are very much interested in using latest technology at a lower cost. This is the reason for popularity of cloud services with the help of Internet across the globe. Storing of data in cloud is one of the major functions as outsourcing reduces the burden of local storage and issues related to them. The research focus is on protection of data stored on cloud which is usually sensitive data or private data as well. The protection mechanisms should be in such a way that the mechanisms for protection should be stringent thereby preventing access by the attackers. Manipulation by intruders should also be prevented. Cryptography helps in changing the critical data to a unreadable form so that manipulation by outsiders is not possible. In order to provide security, several approaches and algorithms are available. These algorithms are used based on the requirement of the user or the organization. The paper compares various algorithms available to secure the sensitive data stored in cloud. Key size of the algorithms are compared along with the performances based in the expenses produced in their usage. The results are shown in table which show the algorithms suitable for the purpose of encryption in cloud.
