Cloud computing has increased the need for sound and sophisticated 
security strategies. Although encryption is the primary mechanism to 
provide security in data transmission, cloud computing offers both 
advantages and disadvantages to enhancing the encryption process. 
Encryption algorithms currently available are robust, but are well 
known and require a “key” to make a session unique. Therefore, if 
the key is compromised the encryption can be unlocked no matter how 
robust the algorithm. In the classical model, a node in a network 
contains the entire key, and if compromised, then potentially the 
entire cloud’s security could be breached. Also, if the key were 
destroyed then all the data it protects could be lost, because the 
data couldn’t be unencrypted. Therefore, splitting the key and 
storing portions on multiple nodes within a cloud would make it more 
difficult to compromise or lose the key. Further, the key could be 
striped (like a RAID, Redundant Array of Independent Disks) so if 
distributed across multiple nodes some could fail and the key could 
still be recovered. This methodology could create greater security, 
while providing greater fault tolerance by allowing retrieval of the 
entire key even if some nodes were compromised or destroyed.
