Cloud provides an easy platform for users for the purpose of accessing and storing data from anywhere using the internet. Hence in spite the data being private, sensitive as well as confidential, the user decides to reside the data using the cloud by trusting the cloud. But, the privacy of this data resting on the cloud often gets compromised due to various issues, leading towards the security breach of the cloud and affecting the integrity of the data. This research paper contributes a methodology of encryption and decryption for securing the data on cloud. Traditionally, encryption process generates a cipher-text from a private text using a key, but the methodology proposed generates a cipher image from private text. Using this proposed methodology, the user can store any kind of data on the cloud without worrying about its breach or its integrity being affected.
