Securing Distributed Database Using Extended Blowfish Algorithm
Data is an asset for any dynamically operating organization and their business in today’s world. The data to be secured is normally stored in a database. As this data is considered as an asset, it is to be secured from the unauthorised access and the intruders which is the major concern. Cryptography is considered as an efficient way for securing the data in the distributed database specifically in the organisations having a possibility of higher risk factor. In this paper, Blowfish encryption algorithm which is considered as the best algorithm among others is implemented with the educational dataset. The elongated version of the Blowfish algorithm is implemented as the proposed work for securing the data in the distributed database.
