Nowadays, Recent developments shows that, Cloud computing is a milestone in delivering IT services based on the Internet. Storage as a Service is a type of business model which rents storage space for smaller companies or even for individuals. The vendors are targeting secondary storage by promoting this service which allows a convenient way of managing backups instead of maintaining a large tape library. The key advantage of using Storage service is cost savings of hardware and physical storage spaces. In securing Storage as a Service model, there is a need for a middleware to monitor the data transmission among cloud storage and various clients. The objective of the system aims at developing a smart and integrated dynamic secured storage model which acts as a middleware in supporting all the primary security goals such as confidentiality, data integrity, and accountability. This proposed model will provide secured data dynamics, access controls and auditability. The secured data dynamics is done by Boneh Franklin-Identity Based Cryptography. This model enhances the accounting model in adding indexing policies and provides security in the audit logs through password based cryptography along with AES. This is a generic middleware assisting the basic security features for any cloud environment, so that it can be equipped for any type of system. The main advantage of the proposed system is to reduce the time complexity in encryption and decryption process and also to provide higher degree of security. We also leveraged the implementation of this middleware in a mail server environment with drive option which poses file storage and enables file sharing among the drive users.
