Com­mon En­cryp­tion Meth­ods on Cloud Stor­age Ser­vices

THE EN­CRYPTED CON­NEC­TION METHOD One of the most com­monly-used meth­ods em­ployed by cloud stor­age ser­vices is en­crypt­ing the com­mu­ni­ca­tion chan­nel be­tween your com­puter and the cloud ser­vice. This means that the data is only en­crypted dur­ing trans­mis­sion, which pre­vents any unau­tho­rized par­ties from view­ing your data dur­ing the data trans­fer. How­ever, this also means that the data is de­crypted when it ar­rives on your cloud stor­age ser­vice’s server, so staff which have ac­cess to the server could pos­si­bly view your data. Se­cure Sock­ets Layer is an ex­am­ple of this en­cryp­tion method.
