Abstract: In this study, a stack of three level security, the security mechanism are proposed on top of Secure Socket Layer (SSL) Virtual Private Network (VPN) with Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) applied for XML web services in cloud computing and the authentication of user that avoid the privacy risk in VPN. It provides a secure logging mechanism. The connection is established seamlessly when the user connects VPN on the cloud ensuring data security and privacy of users. On the existing SSL based VPN, ECC encryption enhances the security level of users private data to create an encrypted key that is difficult to decrypt and thereby making it difficult to hack the network. Same digital ECC key is being archived by the web services component. By this mechanism, the security of data transmission from the VPN client to the server is assured. The servers data processing speed is effectively upgraded. This technique is analyzed and compared with the existing scheme. The process is more reliable and rapid based on the outcome of the groundwork.
