Cloud computing is a model for enabling ubiquitous, convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications, and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction. Cloud computing provides the new way of storing data in cloud servers. Customers store the data in the cloud data centers and they are not informed about loss and damage. Third party auditing is important in creating an on line service-oriented economy, because it allows customers to evaluate data integrity risks in cloud servers. In this paper, the authors going to analyze various methods and protocols used in the auditing of data stored in the cloud.
