Despite the apparent advantages of cloud computing, the fear of unauthorized exposure of sensitive user data and non-compliance to privacy restrictions impedes its adoption for security-sensitive tasks. For the common setting in which the cloud infrastructure provider and the online service provider are different, end users have to trust the efforts of both of these parties for properly handling their private data as intended. To address this challenge, in this paper, the authors take a step towards elevating the confidence of users for the safety of their cloud-resident data by introducing Cloudopsy, a service with the goal to pro-vide a visual autopsy of the exchange of user data in the cloud premises.
