Abstract: Cloud technology offers on-demand access/allocation of resources (such as storage, computing) as guaranteed and reliable services. Cloud users valuable and confidential data is stored on a virtual server that may be shared by multiple users. This stored data is prone to attacks (access or alteration) for malicious intentions by an unauthorized users or program. So, security of data is a big challenge for cloud computing. However, such an instance can be prevented if the stored data is encrypted. Existing encryptions employ algorithms that are towards the end of life, thanks to ever improving computing technologies. This paper proposes an encryption algorithm which is efficient and optimized for data security in cloud computing. The proposed Algorithm performs multiple rounds of encryption operations based on the length of the encryption key, harnessing the power of parallel processing to ensure better performance. The main features of this algorithm are that it uses a larger key and is designed in a way that fragment of code can also be executed in parallel.
