Cloud computing is the recent trend in computing service provision, from being provided locally to being provided remotely and en masse, by third-party service providers. Functionality such as storage, processing is now offered on demand, as a pay-per-use service. Data, housed under the consumer's administrative and security domain, has now been extracted and placed under the domain of the Cloud Service Provider (CSP). The consumer has effectively lost control over how their data is being stored, shared and used, and also over the techniques used to protect their data.
