Cloud computing is a new type of service which provides large scale computing resource to each customer. Cloud Computing Systems can be easily threatened by various cyber attacks, because most of Cloud computing system needs to contain some Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) for protecting each Virtual Machine (VM) against threats. In this case, there exists a tradeoff between the security level of the IDS and the system performance. If the IDS provide stronger security service using more rules or patterns, then it needs much more computing resources in proportion to the strength of security. So the amount of resources allocating for customers decreases. Another problem in Cloud Computing is that, huge amount of logs makes system administrators hard to analyze them.
