While the many economic and technological advantages of cloud computing are apparent, the migration of key sector applications onto it has been limited, in part, due to the lack of security assurance on the Cloud Service Provider (CSP). However, the recent efforts on specification of security statements in service level agreements, also known as \"Security Level Agreements\" or SecLAs is a positive development. While a consistent notion of cloud SecLAs is still developing, already some major CSPs are creating and storing their advocated SecLAs in publicly available repositories e.g., the Cloud Security Alliance's \"Security, Trust & Assurance Registry\" (CSA STAR).
