Cryptography provides techniques that can be used to implement core security services such as confidentiality and data integrity. We review some fundamental cryptographic mechanisms and identify some of the limitations of traditional cryptography with respect to cloud computing environments. We then review a number of relatively new cryptographic tools that have the potential to provide the extended security functionality required by some cloud computing applications.
