With the rapid advancement of emerging technologies, a huge amount of data is created and processed in daily life. Nowadays, Cloud Computing (CC) technology is one of the frequently adopted technologies to access and store data over the internet. CC mainly provides on-demand and pay-per-use services to users. However, access control and security are two major issues that users face in a cloud environment. During data access from a cloud server, the searching time of a Data Owner (DO) and the data accessing time are high. Therefore, users utilize more cloud services and pay more. High system overhead is another issue of a cloud environment. In this paper, a novel access control model has been proposed to overcome all these concerns. Here, the Cloud Service Provider (CSP) maintains a temporary table based on the data type and popularity value of the DO for fast and efficient data accessing. The cloud service provider can easily search the data owner by using the table and the data accessing time is remarkably reduced. Experimental results and theoretical analysis of the proposed scheme prove its efficiency over the existing schemes.
