Abstract: Security is one of the most crucial aspects in cloud computing, in order to provide security in cloud computing there are many cryptographic and non-cryptographic techniques [2][3] are used. Most of the non cryptographic approaches suffer from security breaches and the main drawback of cryptographic algorithms is computation time incurred in encryption and decryption of data. A methodology is proposed to implement unique approach to provide a security in cloud computing. Where text file will be fragmented based on random number generation. From the random number generation algorithm lower range and higher range values will be calculated so that the new random number which needs to compute should be within the lower and higher range of random number. Fragments can be obtained based on the new random number. With reference to the random number, block size or fragment size will be calculated. Hence text file will be divided into fragments.
