Increase in cloud users raise different issues in cloud computing. Among them one of the crucial issues is security. Due to the increase in users of cloud computing in several areas, the size of data stored in the cloud also increases drastically. Data Security in the cloud is raising challenges for Cloud Service Providers (CSP) and Cloud Service Consumer (CSC). There is a lot of research happening to make data secure in the cloud but researchers are still not able to set a standard requirement for data security in the cloud because of technological advancement and the use of the cloud in different fields and purposes. This paper is based on a review of the different state-of-the-art in cloud computing data security. Further, those approaches are analysed with security requirements for data security in cloud computing.
