The phenomenon of cloud computing has been driven largely these days. Personal Cloud, as the cloud computing for personal usage, has come to the forefront. Compare with traditional operating system, personal cloud shifts individual computing "From being device-centric to information-centric", which create a bridge between operating system-based computing and the more service-oriented approach to IT. Also, the mobile thin-client has brought mobility to cloud computing. In this paper, the authors provide a reference base for the development of methodologies tailored for personal cloud computing. Besides, they also provide security architecture for personal cloud based on the security requirement analysis.
