Blockchain security issues in relation to encryption for data privacy and integrity in cloud computing have become challenging due to the decentralized and peer-to-peer systems for securing data storage and transfer in smart contracts. Further, Blockchain technology continues revolutionizing how we handle data, from improving transparency to enhancing security. However, various instances of data breaches, piracy, and hacking attacks have compromised the safety measures employed by these providers. The paper aims to explore Blockchain technology and how encryption algorithms are used to leverage security properties to uphold data privacy and integrity in a cloud environment to enhance security. The novelty contribution of the paper is threefold. First, we explore existing blockchain attacks, vulnerabilities, and their impact on the cloud computing environment supported by numerous cloud services that enable clients to store and share data online. Secondly, we used an encryption approach to detect data security by combining AES encryption, cloud storage, and Ethereum smart contracts in cloud AWS S3. Finally, we recommend control mechanisms to improve blockchain security in the cloud environment. The paper results show that AES algorithms can be used in blockchain smart contracts to enhance security, privacy, and integrity to ensure secure data in transit and at rest.
