Executive Summary

Cloud computing promises to change the economics of the data center, but before sensitive and regulated data move into the public cloud, issues of security standards and compatibility must be addressed including strong authentication, delegated authorization, key management for encrypted data, data loss protections, and regulatory reporting. All are elements of a secure identity, information and infrastructure model, and are applicable to private and public clouds as well as to IAAS, PAAS and SAAS services. In the development of public and private clouds, enterprises and service providers will need to use these guiding principles to selectively adopt and extend security tools and secure products to build and offer end-to-end trustworthy cloud computing and services.
