Abstract
Cloud computing is a collection of distributed storage Network which can provide various services and store the data in the efficient manner. The advantages of cloud computing is its remote access where data can accessed in real time using Remote Method Innovation (RMI). The problem of data security in cloud environment is a major concern since the data can be accessed by any time by any user. Due to the lack of providing the efficient security the cloud computing they fail to achieve higher performance in providing the efficient service. To improve the performance in data security, the block chains are used for securing the data in the cloud environment. However, the traditional block chain technique are not suitable to provide efficient security to the cloud data stored in the cloud. In this paper, an efficient user centric block level Attribute Based Encryption (UCBL-ABE) scheme is presented to provide the efficient security of cloud data in cloud environment. The proposed approach performs data transaction by employing the block chain. The proposed system provides efficient privacy with access control to the user access according to the behavior of cloud user using Data Level Access Trust (DLAT). Based on DLAT, the user access has been restricted in the cloud environment. The proposed protocol is implemented in real time using Java programming language and uses IBM cloud. The implementation results justifies that the proposed system can able to provide efficient security to the data present in and cloud and also enhances the cloud performance.
