Data sharing is a essential functionality in cloud storage .With the Internet technology and the usage of it in different smart devices, the sharing of data has become very easy.  Data sharing has become an important feature to be considered in cloud Computing. The users who use cloud want their files, folders, pictures and other confidential things to be available for their utilization in cloud storage. It is essential to safely, productively, and adaptable impart important information to others in distributed storage. A special type of public-key encryption which is called Improved Key-Aggregation Cryptosystem is designed to outline an effective scheme that helps in flexible delegation by a constant-size decryption key. The uniqueness of this approach is that one can aggregate any set of secret keys and make assemble as compact as a single key, but passing the decryption power of all the keys that is being aggregate. In cryptography, a fundamental problem is influence the secrecy of a small piece of knowledge into the capability to perform cryptographic functions multiple times. Here the efforts are taken for developing the powerful decryption key, which permits decryption of different cipher texts without expanding the size of aggregate. This scheme performs well in the standard model and can be applicable in cloud storage anytime.
