In current cloud services, users put their data and resources into the cloud so as to enjoy the on-demand high quality applications and services. Different from the conventional services, users in cloud services lose control of their data which is instead manipulated by the large-scale cloud. Therefore, Cloud Service Providers (CSP) guarantee that the cloud which they provide is of high confidence in accuracy and integrity. Traditional penetration test is carried out manually and has low efficiency. In this paper, the authors propose FPTC, a novel framework of penetration test in cloud environment.
