Executive Summary

While the economic case for cloud computing is compelling, the security challenges it poses are equally striking. This paper strives to frame the full space of cloud-computing security issues, attempting to separate justified concerns from possible over-reactions. The paper examines contemporary and historical perspectives from industry, academia, government, and "Black hats".

Looking back further to the time-sharing era, many of these problems already received attention.
