The prominence of the place of cloud computing in future converged networks is incontestable. This is due to the obvious advantages of the cloud as a medium of storage with ubiquity of access platforms and minimal hardware requirements on the user end. Secure delivery of data to and from the cloud is however a serious issue that needs to be addressed. We present in this paper the security issues affecting cloud computing and propose the use of homomorphic encryption as a panacea for dealing with these serious security concerns vis-à-vis the access to cloud data.
