Cloud computing offers various services in form of infrastructure, platform, and software to meet the consumer requirements. It is radically changing how information technology services are created, delivered, accessed, and managed. However, this swift has prompted concerns regarding security and privacy due to cloud computing characteristics such as the multi-tenancy, elasticity, and layered architecture. One of the major challenge is to offer accountability in cloud services across all the…

Cloud computing features, service models, and security issues are discussed and a DNA based encryption algorithm for securing data in cloud environment is proposed which will be cost effective and secure by using bio-computational techniques.


Accountability as a Service for the Cloud
A novel design to achieve Trustworthy Service Oriented Architecture (TSOA) in the Cloud through enforcing strong accountability is proposed and the testing figure indicates the cost of incorporating the design to SOA in the cloud is acceptable.
Seeding clouds with trust anchors
A cloud verifier service that generates integrity proofs for customers to verify the integrity and access control enforcement abilities of the cloud platform that protect the integrity of customer's application VMs in IaaS clouds is proposed.
Accountability for cloud and other future Internet services
The A4Cloud project will create solutions to support users in deciding and tracking how their data is used by cloud service providers, by combining methods of risk analysis, policy enforcement, monitoring and compliance auditing with tailored IT mechanisms for security, assurance and redress.
Cloud Security and Privacy - An Enterprise Perspective on Risks and Compliance
This book, written by recognized authorities in the tech security world, addresses issues that affect any organization preparing to use cloud computing as an option and provides the detailed information on cloud computing security that has been lacking, until now.
A Metamodel for Measuring Accountability Attributes in the Cloud
The goal of this metamodel is to act as a language for describing accountability properties in terms of actions between entities, and metrics for measuring the fulfillment of such properties, and allows the recursive decomposition of properties and metrics.
Trust but verify: accountability for network services
The foundation of the approach is to preserve digitally signed records of actions and/or internal state snapshots of each service, and use them to detect tampering, verify the consistency of actions, and prove responsibility for unexpected states or actions.
An Analysis of the Cloud Computing Security Problem
