Abstract: The data security in cloud has been well studied towards the data present in the cloud environment. Number of techniques has been discussed earlier and each produces different performance results in data security. But still there are gaps in performance in security which should be optimized. To improve the security performance, an efficient class based encryption (CBE) with User profile (UP) is presented. The proposed CBE-UP method groups the cloud data at attribute level based on the importance mentioned in the taxonomy. The data taxonomy covers various information related to the attribute of any data point like their sensitivity, importance in different class and so on. According to the taxonomy, the method estimates the Class Sensitivity Measure (CSM) for each attribute, which has been used to classify the data attribute. Further, for each Attribute class, the method generates different key from the key set and assigns various scheme to perform encryption and decryption. The selection of key and method has been iterated at each time window. The performance of data security has been improved and reduces the network overhead in distribution of keys to the registered users.
