Abstract: Secure storage and easy retrieval of data is major concern for patients when medical data is stored over cloud platform. The unique features of cloud environment are high performance, data availability and security among which security of data stored in cloud environment is sensitive it can be easily attacked by intruders. Concerning medical images, while storing data, proper secure authentication method should be applied in order to avoid misuse of medical data. When this medical image is retrieved, the clarity of retrieved image should be high in order to determine the exact cause of sickness. This paper focuses on proposing a secure storage and retrieval of medical images stored in cloud with visual cryptographic technique using AES algorithm. The experimental results show that the proposed system is able to store images securely and retrieve medical images with high clarity.
