A company allows its staffs in the same groupor department to store and share files in the cloud. By utilizing the cloud, the staffs can be completely released from the troublesome local data storage and maintenance.However, it also poses a significant risk to the confidentialityof those stored files. Specifically, the cloud serversmanaged by cloud providers are not fully trusted by userswhile the data files stored in the cloud may be sensitive andconfidential, such as business plans. To preserve dataprivacy, a basic solution is to encrypt data files, and thenupload the encrypted data into the cloud. Unfortunately,designing an efficient and secure data sharing scheme forgroups in the cloud is not an easy task due to the followingchallenging issues.First, identity privacy is one of the most significantobstacles for the wide
Organizations use the Cloud in a variety of different service models (SaaS, PaaS, IaaS) and deployment models (Private, Public, Hybrid). There are a number of security issues/concerns associated with cloud computing but these issues fall into two broad categories: Security issues faced by cloud providers (organizations providing software-, platform-, or infrastructure-as-a-service via the cloud) and security issues faced by their customers.In most cases, the provider must ensure that their infrastructure is secure and that their clients’ data and applications are protected while the customer must ensure that the provider has taken the proper security measures to protect their information.
Cloud computing has set a trend in the information technology arena that has sparked the interest of all who utilize the internet on purpose and unsuspectingly. Initially, the primary purpose of cloud computing was to provide a centralized data bank that organizations could use for quick data access. Its use has been quickly adapted, however, beyond business use to become the first option for personal use. The advantages and disadvantages of implementing such a shift from business to personal are varied, yet, statistically, according to the CISCO Global Cloud Index: Forecast and Methodology, 2014-2019 White Paper, its public use is on the rise. The report notes that “by 2019, 56 percent of the cloud workloads will be in public cloud data centers, up from 30 percent in 2014 and by 2019, 44 percent of the cloud workloads will be in private cloud data centers, down from 70 percent in 2014”. Though disadvantages with regard to data security is prominent, users have deemed that its implementation will still promote greater benefits than loss.
Cloud computing entails the pooling of computing resources from several computers and devices to enhance computing capability and power. These on-demand accesses to required computing resources have enabled organizations to cut down on costs (such as start-up capital and operational costs) significantly through the pay-as-you-use subscription model. Computing resources are provisioned via the internet with minimal management effort from firms providing the service. While this service has greatly improved the operations of organizations, there are several challenges that is has faced. These include: data ownership challenges; data security; data service levels; data privacy protections; data mobility; and high bandwidth costs. Due to the continued growth and expansion of the internet, more organizations are seeking to leverage such technology advancements to enhance their competitive advantage. This paper focuses on cloud security, which forms a vital component for the growth and enhancement of the technology and service provision. It seeks to propose a comprehensive layered framework solution to the security concerns outlined above.
While Cloud administrations offers adaptability, versatility and economies of scale, there have been equivalent worries about security. As more information moves from midway found server capacity to the Cloud, the potential for individual and private information to be traded off will increase. Accessibility and trustworthiness of information are in danger if suitable measures are not put set up preceding selecting a Cloud seller or executing your own cloud and moving to Cloud administrations. Cloud administrations, for example, Software as an administration, Platform as an administration or Infrastructure as an administration, will have their own security worries that need to be tended to. The cloud organizations or the vendors conduct a survey on the issues related to the Cloud security. This paper audits the best practices to secure the cloud administrations and information, the threats associated with the cloud technologies and counting traditional security methods and working with sellers to guarantee legitimate Administration Level Agreements exist.
Abstract - Cloud Computing is huge computing, it is the internet based computing, where all users can remotely store their data into the cloud so as to enjoy the latest and high quality applications and services. In outsourcing data, users can be relieved from the burden of local maintenance and data storage .Thus, enabling public auditability for cloud data storage security is of difficult, so that users can resort to an external audit party to check the integrity of outsourced data when needed. The management of data, services may not be fully dependable when cloud moves the application software and databases to the centralized data centers and those data center is large. In this we propose a privacy-preserving public auditing for cloud data storage. To enable the TPA to perform audits for multiple users simultaneously and efficiently. And also doing batch auditing for multiple users ' data.
Digital preservation is key in enabling individuals to access, understand, and use information (Meghini). There are many challenges facing digital preservation including limited storage, policies, and cost. To meet these challenges, some have proposed the incorporation of cloud storage in long-term preservation plans; I disagree. This essay seeks to highlight the weaknesses of cloud storage and direct the conversation of digital preservation to more reliable means.
Cloud computing provides a flexible, collaboration and cost efficient way for business to manage computing resource online. However, while cloud services provide potential benefits to business, it also come with increased security risks.
There are clear indications that private data center use may have peaked. Cloud storage faces the same risks as the enterprise network, adding a virtual location that is also vulnerable to hacked APIs, account hijacking, poor key/certificate management and lax authentication. With the cloud/hybrid model as the growing standard, it is critical for companies to secure data and applications in both the physical and virtual locations.
The ever growing need for the data in Information technology organizations has always lead to invent new services to meet the data needs, whether it is in the form of software, platform, hardware or storage. Cloud computing provides this services to organizations with cost effective methodologies like pay per service, network access, on-demand self-service. Organizations no more have to worry about storage overhead. This services has made huge impact on the organizations business process (Q. Wang, C.Wang, and Ren) (2011). At the same time with increase in technological services, the ever growing services are restricted due to security. Organizations use storage as a service to store their data remotely over cloud however the security of data is not guaranteed which leads to problems like data integrity, data availability, and data correctness. Various models has been proposed to address this data integrity concern over cloud (Chakraborty, Dhami, bansal), (2013).
Abstract - Cloud Computing is huge computing, it is the internet based computing, where all users can remotely store their data into the cloud so as to enjoy the latest and high quality applications and services. In outsourcing data , users can be relieved from the burden of local maintenance and data storage .Thus, enabling public auditability for cloud data storage security is of difficult so that users can resort to an external audit party to check the integrity of outsourced data when needed. To securely introduce an effective. The following two fundamental requirements to securely introduce an effective third party auditor (TPA) .1) The third party auditing process should bring in no new vulnerabilities towards user data privacy. 2) TPA introduces no additional on-line burden to the cloud user. TPA should be able to efficiently audit the cloud data storage. 3) TPA should audit the data for checking the integrity of that data. In this we propose for privacy-preserving public auditing for cloud data storage.To enable the TPA to perform audits for multiple users simultaneously and efficiently.We also doing batch auditing for multiple users data.
Are cloud storage solutions irrelevant for a large organisation of 1,500 staff? - An evaluation of capabilities and potential for Cloud storage in the enterprise
Usage of remote servers via internet to store, manage and process data instead of using a personal computer is known as Cloud computing. It’s a set of Information Technology services with the ability to scale up or down their service requirements. Most of the cloud services are provided by a third party service provider. In cloud computing, organizations can utilize IT services without in advance investment. Despite its benefits obtained from the cloud computing, the organizations are slow in accepting it due to security issues and challenges. Security is one of the major problems which hinder the growth of cloud. It’s not wise to handing over the important data to another company; such that clients need to be vigilant in understanding the risks of data infringement in this new environment. This paper discusses a detailed analysis of the cloud computing security issues and challenges. (Ayoleke)
