The term data security refers to the degree of resistance of protection given to information from unintended or unauthorized access. The core principles of information security remain the same - confidentiality, integrity and availability also referred as CIA triad. With cloud adoption the confidential enterprise data is moved from organization premises to untrusted public network and due to this the attack surface has increased manifold. Several cloud computing platforms like OpenStack, Eucalyptus, Amazon EC2 offer users to build and configure public, hybrid and private clouds.
