Cloud computing has become an integral part of everyone's life since it allows us to share our data with anyone at any time and from any location over the internet through a service provider. Cloud computing provides virtualized platforms that enable users to manage and analyze data without having to do it manually. The term "E-Health" is used by hospital executives to describe the electronic monitoring of health-related data. Various e-Health applications have been developed to use e-Health data to monitor patients' health successfully remotely. Patient-sensitive data must be safeguarded at all costs to prevent data manipulation. In the cloud, protecting E-Health data is a serious problem. They have used numerous security algorithms in the existing system and still have much work to do to enhance security levels. This proposed method to secure data for E-Health applications in cloud environments by securing improved versions of secure hash fixed-based output cryptographic algorithms (SHA-512) with a Password-Based Key Derivation Function (PBKDF2), which helps to secure patient data in e-health cloud environments. These methods identify the most common aggressions faced by end users, such as Man in the Middle, Brute Force and Rainbow attacks. Finally, all the cryptographic hash methods were compared in terms of CPU time, Memory space, and Execution time.
