Cloud computing security or cloud security is a growing sub-domain of network security, computer security and more broadly information security. It refers to a set politics, technologies and controls deployed to protect the data, applications and the associated infrastructure of cloud computing.
Cloud computing importance is increasing and gaining scientific attention and industrial communities. Cloud computing is one among the top 10 most important technologies and with a better prospect in successful companies and organizations. Cloud computing permit convenient, on-demand network access to a share pool of configurable computing resources that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal service and effect provided interaction.
Cloud computing acts as distribution architecture as well as computational paradigm and the main idea of the cloud computing is to provide quick, secure, net computing services and convenient data storage with all computing resources visualized as services and delivered on the internet. Cloud computing binds number of technologies and computing concepts like as Service Oriented Architecture, Virtualization and other similar technologies that dependent on the internet, providing similar business applications online on web browsers to satisfy the needs of the customer while their information and software are stored on the server.
The cloud provides three services to the user, they are
1. Software as a Service (SaaS)
2. Platform as a Service (PaaS)
3. Infrastructure as a Service (Iaas)
1. Software as a Service (SaaS) :
The credentials provided to the user is use to provider’s application running on the cloud infrastructure. The client can access these applications from various client devices through thin client interface like as wed browser.
2. Platform as a Service (PaaS) :
The credentials provided to the user to install onto the cloud infrastructure to use own applications without installing any platform or software on their local machines. PaaS refers to giving platform layer resources that includes operating system support and software development frameworks that are used to construct high-level services.
3. Infrastructure as a Services (IaaS) :
The credentials provided to the user is to provide processing, networks, storage and other fundamental computing resources where the client able to install and arbitrary software which can include operating system and applications.
Cloud computing security issues :
The cloud computing security issue is main concern with Cloud Development Model
Cloud Deployment Model :
In this model platform, storage, networking and software infrastructure are provided as services that grows up and down depending on their demand. The Cloud Computing Model has 3 main deployment model , they are
1. Private Cloud
2. Public Cloud
3. Hybrid Cloud
1. Private Cloud:
The term private cloud new the vendors use to describe that corresponding cloud computing on the...
