An Analysis on Security Concerns in Cloud Computing

Cloud computing is the emerging technology that is used worldwide for storage as well as distributed data processing. In the cloud technology, client's data is stored on the cloud service provider's domain. The concept of this new technology i.e. cloud computing is adopted by many clients, but is receiving criticism from many people, who observe that; in this cloud technology, client loses control on computing processes. This paper mainly aims to the fundamental security issues that existing in present cloud computing environments. The fundamental issues that affect the trust between client and service provider are security, privacy, accountability, auditability and fault recovery. These issues are the major restriction factor in the development and adoption of cloud computing. In this proposed trusted framework for cloud computing, the authors consider the above mentioned trust issues (security, privacy, auditability, accountability and fault recovery) as the trust component.
