A Survey on Homomorphic Encryption in Cloud Computing
Rana M Pir,  Rumel M S Pir,  Imtiaz U Ahmed
Cloud Computing is the delivery of service rather than product. You can share information to the clients on the cloud. Cloud provider can be of service provider, data provider and platform provider. There is major and challenging issue of cloud like security. The advantage of cloud is reduced cost, easy maintenance and providing of resources. In this paper I have survey the approach of Homomorphic encryption in cloud. Homomorphic encryption is the technique through which we can apply the algebraic operation on ciphertext without converting it in plaintext. Homomorphic encryption is the method which performs operation on encrypted data which will provide result without decrypting that data. This method provides the same result as operation performs on row data. The scheme is said to be “fully Homomorphic’’ when we can perform (a sequence of operations) both addition and multiplication, whereas, it is “somewhat Homomorphic’’ if it supports a limited number of operations.
