Risk-Based Dynamic Access Control for a Highly Scalable Cloud Federation
Cloud computing is already a successful paradigm for distributed computing and is still growing in popularity. However, many problems still linger in the application of this model and some new ideas are emerging to help leverage its features even further. One of these ideas is the cloud federation, which is a way of aggregating different clouds to enable the sharing of resources and increase scalability and availability. One of the great challenges in the deployment of cloud federations is Identity and access management.
