Abstract

With the increasing rate of adoption of cloud services for storage of personal files, there is a need of protecting the data, especially those in media format to avoid intrusion of external attackers as well as the cloud storage providers, preventing them from using it otherwise. This paper briefly describes the concept of base64 encoding and its use along with Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) as a crypto-system, to store media files on cloud in an encrypted digital form. The paper also includes a comparative study of ECC and RSA.
