Due to the rapid advances in the networking technologies and the continued growth of the internet have triggered a new trend of cloud computing towards outsourcing data to the cloud service providers. The ever cheaper and most powerful database as a service (DaaS) computing paradigm that enables organizations to minimize their operational cost in a way that they no longer need to purchase infrastructure and hire human resources. In this paper, we need to present a secure model that provides data security at cloud and anonymization of data in a way that satisfies e-differential privacy.
