Authentication, Authorization, integrity, availability and confidentiality are important aspects in cloud computing services. Cloud services market demands can be increased by enhancing the authentication, data confidentiality and customer trust. To achieve strong authentication, security and to earn customer trust, we had proposed and published secure cloud transmission protocol (SecCTP) which describes SecCTP techniques in detail. In this paper, we evaluated the SecCTP and presented the GUI implementation. We discuss the applicability, usefulness and advantages of SecCTP techniques i.e. multi-dimensional password generation and multi-level authentication in comparison with existing cloud authentication and confidentiality techniques. We describe how SecCTP improves the identity, access management, integrity and confidentiality in existing cloud service access. We evaluated SecCTP resistance in multiple attacks.
