Quantum computing has emerged as a transformative technology with the potential to revolutionize various domains, including cryptography. This research paper addresses the pressing issue of enhancing cryptographic protocols in cloud security through the integration of quantum computing. The main objective of this study is to develop and evaluate novel cryptographic protocols that leverage the computational power of quantum systems to enhance security measures in cloud environments.To achieve this objective, we employed a hybrid methodology that combines classical cryptographic techniques with quantum algorithms. Specifically, we designed a framework incorporating quantum key distribution (QKD) and post-quantum cryptographic (PQC) algorithms to ensure robust security against quantum attacks. The framework was implemented and tested in a simulated cloud environment to assess its effectiveness and performance.The results indicate that the proposed quantum-enhanced cryptographic protocols significantly improve the security and resilience of cloud systems. Our findings demonstrate that the integration of QKD and PQC provides a higher level of security compared to traditional cryptographic methods, effectively mitigating potential threats posed by quantum computers. Additionally, the performance analysis shows that the proposed protocols are computationally feasible and can be integrated into existing cloud infrastructures with minimal overhead.In conclusion, this research highlights the potential of quantum computing to address critical security challenges in cloud computing. The proposed quantum-enhanced cryptographic protocols offer a promising solution for protecting sensitive data in cloud environments against emerging quantum threats. Future work will focus on refining these protocols and exploring their practical applications in real-world cloud systems.
