Our life nowadays relies much on technologies and online services net banking, e-voting and so on. So, there is a necessity to secure the data that is transmitted through the internet. However, while performing decryption, it sometimes led to privacy violation so there is need to operate on users encrypted data without knowing the original plaintext.
This paper represents the implementation of two-layer cryptosystem using paillier and elgamal algorithm both following asymmetric encryption. It is mainly focusing the challenges of privacy protection and secure utilization of information, where homomorphy encryption is gaining attention. Additive homomorphism is used in paillier cryptosystem which is used in fields like secure biometrics and electronic voting. Elgamal ensures that paillier encrypted data is secured that ensures two-layer encryption.
