In this paper, the authors present a study on the challenges and issues of security in Cloud computing. First they look into the critical fifteen domains in Cloud security, namely Domain: Cloud Architecture to Domain 15: Virtualization. Then they analyze the cloud traditional best practice security solutions and the security levels (i.e.) Encryption, Physical security, Authentication & access control, Separation of duties, Configuration, Change control and path management, Intrusion detection and prevention. Furthermore they discuss deployment models (Public, Community, Private and Hybrid models) of cloud security and the taxonomy for security issues in cloud computing; finally they summarize the cloud computing security challenges.
