Cloud computing has become the burning research topic in the present as it seems to fulfill the current business needs by making the resources of hardware, software, platform and infrastructure available to the consumers as per their requirement and demands whenever and wherever they want. This leads to a lot of implementation challenges that come across, of which the most eminent are trust and security. This paper tries to find out the trust elements which could promote the use of cloud computing among users at large. An attempt is being made to find out the existing trust models and their drawbacks so as to lead to new trust models in the near future to bring more confidence in the use of cloud computing.
