Abstract

Cloud computing services are increasingly being adopted by individuals and companies thanks to their various advantages such as high storage and computation capacities, reliability and low maintenance costs. Yet, data security and user privacy remain
the major concern for cloud customers since by moving their data and their computing tasks into the cloud they inherently lend the control to cloud service providers. Therefore, customers nowadays call for end-to-end security solutions in order to retain full control over their data.
