Enhancing the Security Framework Secure cloud With the Swift Identity Management Framework
SecureCloud is a comprehensive security framework for cloud computing environments consisting of different modules that handle the security and trust issues of key components. One of the modules is responsible for authentication and IDentity Management (IDM). In SecureCloud, the author suggest, to implement the security solution for the Authentication and IDM module, it is important to ensure IDM services in the cloud can be integrated with the existing IDM framework. Existing techniques for use of pseudonyms and accommodating multiple identities to protect users' privacy can help build a desired usercentric federated IDM for clouds.
