Cloud computing is rising enormously due to its advantages and the adaptable storage services being provided by it. Because of this, the number of users has reached the top level. The users will share the sensitive data through the cloud. Furthermore, the user can't trust the untrusted cloud server. Subsequently, the data access control has turned out to be extremely challenging in cloud storage framework. In existing work, revocable data access control scheme proposed for multi-authority cloud storage frameworks which supports the access control in light of the authority control. The authorized users who have desirable attributes given by various authorities can access the data. However, it couldn't control the attacks which can happen to the authorized user who is not having desirable attributes. In this work, they propose a new algorithm named Improved Security Data Access Control which beats the issue exists in the existing work. And furthermore, incorporates the efficient attribute revocation strategy for multi-authority cloud storage.

Keywords: Access control, multi-authority, attribute revocation, cloud storage.
