Description

Applying software engineering to Cloud computing is a primary aspect to obtain a systematic approach to the development, operation and maintenance of software. As a result, there is a need to examine and propose security solutions for cloud computing in order to improve the quality and security of all services, applications, and tools based on cloud computing.

Security Engineering for Cloud Computing: Approaches and Tools provides a theoretical and academic description of Cloud security issues, methods, tools and trends for developing secure software for Cloud services and applications. This book is a comprehensive collection including a wide range of existing problems and challenges that would be useful in both the academic and research world.

Topics Covered

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Agile Software Development
  • Cloud computing
  • Cloud systems
  • Developments of cloud systems
  • Security analysis
  • Security Challenges
  • Security Goals
  • Security risks
  • Software engineering

Reviews and Testimonials

Exploring approaches to security in cloud computing services, computer scientists and software engineers in Spain, elsewhere in Europe, and the Americas cover cloud architecture and patterns; risks and vulnerabilities; and hardware security, secure storage, and policy management. Among their topics are dynamic security properties monitoring architecture for cloud computing, three misuse patterns, a software tool to support risk analysis about what should or should not go into the cloud, a goal-driven risk management approach to support security and privacy analysis of cloud-based systems, and securing cloud storage.
