Abstract

Cloud computing technology is a relatively new concept of providing scalable and virtualized resources, software and hardware on demand to consumers. It presents a new technology to deliver computing resources as a service. It offers a variety of benefits like services on demand and provisioning and suffers from several weaknesses. In fact, security presents a major obstacle in cloud computing adoption. In this paper, the authors will deal with security problems in cloud computing systems and show how to solve these problems using a quantitative security risk assessment model named Multi-dimensional Mean Failure Cost (M2FC). In fact, they summarize first security issues related to cloud computing environments and then propose a generic framework that analysis and evaluate cloud security problems and then propose appropriate countermeasures to solve these problems.
Article Preview

Literature review was shown that there are many works that studied cloud security issues (Zissis & Lekkas, 2012; Ukil, Jana & De Sarkar, 2013; Hu, Wu & Cheng, 2012; Sun, Chang, Sun, Li & Wang, 2012; Sun, Chang, Sun, Li & Wang, 2012). All works provide a qualitative discussion of security related issues in CC environments submitting a quick analysis and survey of security issues. In fact, they develop and deploy a qualitative security management framework on cloud computing environment by proposing some security strategies (countermeasures).
