Cloud computing is a space on the web where the users can remotely store data on the cloud. The user relies solely on the services of the cloud service provider to ensure the security and privacy of his data. The confidential and critical data is prone to unauthorized access by third party APIs, employees of the cloud service provider or security agencies to serve their vested interests. In this paper to ensure the security of data stored over public cloud discussed as a novel two-tier approach where the data is stored in an encrypted format and only the owner of the data can have access to the original data shared across the cloud. The algorithm OwnData: Encryption and Decryption is based on AES file encryption, which has the flexibility to be implemented across different cloud platforms. We have developed the application of our architecture on the Google Drive platform. Against the existing services, as provided by various Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) as listed in their (SLA) Service Level Agreement, we have presented a perspective on how a customer can monitor and maintain the security of private data.
