Systems Engineering incorporates systematic and comprehensive approach to modelling, designing, and developing enterprise systems includes software and service based systems. Caminao project (2013) provides a comprehensive framework for systems engineering methods and concepts. The Internet technology has revolutionised the way we live on daily basis. The use of Internet is growing rapidly from devices, appliances and cloud computing which has emerged to address cost-effective solution for businesses. However, security is the most common security concerns of all. Therefore, security for cloud computing is the main aim of this article. The everyday cloud applications and apps can be protected using commonly available anti-security software packages. However, it is harder to protect us from security related attacks which emerges unexpectedly and are often hard to predict. This isn’t sufficient for cloud service providers who offer three different types of services such as Software as a Service (SaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). Therefore, there is a need for going beyond boundaries of existing security techniques such as password protection, virus checks, secured financial transaction techniques, etc. The following are categories of broad spectrum of security related research that are under taken:

Key Terms in this Chapter

Build Security In (BSI): Is the process of identifying service security requirements right from beginning of the service identification to the complete life cycle.

Service Reuse: Is the process of reusing services when composing new services.

Cloud Data Security (CDS): Security of maintaining and preserving client’s data that are kept in the cloud.

Business Process as a Service (BPaaS): Is the set of process related to managing process related activities of a service business.

Software Security Engineering (SSE): Is the new discipline of applying engineering principles to develop security requirements to engineer software applications including cloud services such as SaaS is essentially a software application which is delivered as a service.
