Cloud computing is a trending technological phenomenon, the possibilities of what may be achieved in the services are making many organizations to follow the trend. With storage facilities available on the cloud, many users prefer storing their data on the cloud. Since more than one users are available in managing or using group data, proper access control needs to be put in place to prevent unlawful access. Encryption of data is another form of providing security for data to prevent both insider and external threat. Researchers have proposed different schemes for group key management. The scheme proposed in this paper provides access control using user attributes (a derivation of cipher-text attribute based encryption) with proper key management. The scheme provides dynamic access control using proxy based key management.
