Using the Cloud: Keeping Enterprise Data Private
Cloud computing has overcome the computing industry within the past few years. Exciting prospects such as sharing resources, reducing costs, and increasing efficiency have made the cloud computing model highly attractive. In this paper, the authors will focus briefly on the privacy and security concerns of outsourcing the hosting of a virtual infrastructure, often referred to as Infrastructure as a Service. Also, they will analyze two different methods of encrypting data and the performance degradation that is caused by leveraging encryption in an effort to prevent a cloud provider from accessing one information.
