Abstract: In information and telecommunication technology has infiltrated deep into the human lives and is influencing human lifestyle in diverse aspects. The fast growth in information and telecommunication technology has embarked progress in computing devices and computing techniques. At present cloud computing is one of the most hyped improvements. It has several constructive impacts like reduced cost, augmented throughput, ease of use but it also had certain security problems that must be dealt with cautiously. There are several techniques that can be used to overcome this major setback. Cloud computing is offering a platform for sharing resources, services and information between the people and organizations across the world. The current developments in cloud computing technology illustrate an increase in security, privacy and trust related issues in many ways which havent been visage by the ones who have been designing cloud environments. Still, most of the organizations are not moving to cloud computing due to lack of trust in the cloud environment. To overcome such issues authentication and data protection have to be enhanced. In this study novel, iris based authentication has been combined to cryptography for reduction of above-said issues.
