Cloud technology provides the convenience of access to data from anywhere in a time- and cost-effective manner. Due to the recent security breaches, users' fear of losing control of their own data has increased. Data-security is a significant barrier to the wide adoption of Cloud services. In this paper, we introduce a highly decentralized information accountability framework to keep track of the actual usage of the user data in the Cloud. In particular, a line-centered approach is proposed to enable enclosing logging mechanism with user data and policies. A line to line security of file authentication using the Rivest-Shamir-Adleman (RSA) and message digest 5 (MD5) algorithms are used to create a dynamic and a secure Cloud environment. In case of any attempts to access data by an unauthorized person, the framework triggers an authentication error message and automates logging details to the data owner.
