Cloud computing has been considered a revolutionary approach towards the computing and a promising solution to increasing demand for using resources provisioned over the Internet which becomes more risky than ever. The cloud computing is a powerful technology in IT environment to provide cost effective, easy to manage, elastic, and powerful resources over the Internet. by eliminating the need to maintain expensive computing hardware, The cloud computing increases the capabilities of the hardware resources through optimal and shared utilization. Even though there are innumerable advantages to approaching the cloud computing, it also contains various problems lie in data security, data confidentiality, Authenticity and Privacy. The prominent barrier to adopt the cloud computing is security. This paper comprises the elaborated study on various security issues related to cloud storage in order to protect the data stored in the cloud.
