The massive jumps in technology led to the expansion of cloud computing as the most accepted medium for communication but it has also increased the scope of attacks as well. So security has become a major issue for cloud computing. In this paper the authors proposed a single IDS controller creating and managing multiple instances for each user. A multi-threaded NIDS protects the cloud efficiently and avoids the traffic congestion for large volume of data. In order to detect encrypted and fragmented data, HIDS is also deployed in the hypervisor for detailed monitoring over server.
