|Abstract||Cloud computing is all the rage. “It’s become the phrase du jour,” says Gartner senior analyst Ben Pring . While some consider it as a future derived technology that will not only help organisations to gain more profit but will also have a positive impact on the environment, others consider it as a past derived technology which is a refined version of Timesharing model from late 1960’s and nothing new. Whatever the words be, Cloud computing has gained a lot of attention in the recent years and has a wide scope in the IT industry and the big IT giants are all set to provide cloud services to the clients, as they require. Beside its wide possibilities, one threat that cloud faces is of its security issues. As in cloud computing, the data resides in the third party data centers, and the data is always vulnerable to attacks and changes. The changes or modification of data can be in from of a third party attack where a unauthorised person makes unwanted modification in the data or it can be a insider attack where an authorised person makes unauthorised changes in data. In this paper we identify some areas where cryptography can help a rapid adoption of cloud computing. Although secure storage has already captured the attention of many cloud providers, offering a higher level of protection for their customer’s data, we think that more advanced techniques such as searchable encryption will become popular in the near future, opening the doors of the Cloud to customers with higher security requirements.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and 9 other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
