Abstract

The increasing use of cloud computing has raised concerns about the security of sensitive data. Quantum computers pose a serious threat to the security of traditional encryption schemes, as they could be used to break these schemes in a relatively short amount of time. Quantum cryptography offers a promising solution to this problem, as it provides a secure way to exchange keys that cannot be broken by quantum computers. In this paper, we propose a novel data security scheme for cloud computing that uses quantum key distribution (QKD). The scheme uses a QKD protocol to establish a shared secret key between the cloud server and the client. This key is then used to encrypt the data before it is sent to the cloud server. The scheme also proposes a new method for verifying the integrity of the data after it has been decrypted. The proposed scheme is secure against both classical and quantum attacks. It is also efficient, as it does not require the transmission of large amounts of data. The scheme is also scalable, as it can be easily implemented in cloud computing environments.
