Trust Mechanisms for Cloud Computing

Trust is a critical factor in cloud computing; in present practice it depends largely on perception of reputation, and self assessment by providers of cloud services. The authors begin this paper with a survey of existing mechanisms for establishing trust, and comment on their limitations. They then address those limitations by proposing more rigorous mechanisms based on evidence, attribute certification, and validation, and conclude by suggesting a framework for integrating various trust mechanisms together to reveal chains of trust in the cloud.
