High security is one of leading restriction for shining up bright eras and vision of Cloud computing. In latest trend of Cloud, all the sensitive applications and data are moved towards cloud infrastructure and data center which run on virtual computing resources in the form of virtual machine. The large scale usage of virtualization to achieve cloud infrastructure brings additional security burden for tenants of a public cloud service. In this paper, we primarily aim to achieve better data integrity verification technique and help users to utilize Data as a Service (Daas) in Cloud computing. The experimental results are included in order to show the effectiveness of the proposed method for data integrity verification.
