Abstract

Cloud computing is considered as one of the most exciting technology because of its flexibility and scalability. The main problem that occurs in cloud is security. To overcome the problems or issues of security, a new technique called fog-computing is evolved. As there are security issues in fog even after getting the encrypted data from cloud, we implemented the process of encryption using AES algorithm to check how it works for the fog. So far, to our analysis AES algorithm is the most secured process of encryption for security. Three datasets of different types are considered and applied the analysed encryption technique over those datasets. On validation, entire data over datasets is being accurately encrypted and decrypted back as well. We took android mobile as an edge device and deployed the encryption over datasets into it. Further, performance of encryption is evaluated over selected datasets for accuracy if the entire data is correctly encrypted and decrypted along with the time, User load, Response time, Memory Utilization over file size. Further best and worst cases among the datasets are analysed thereby evaluating the suitability of AES in fog.
