Private Information Protection in Cloud Computing - Laws, Compliance &Amp; Cloud Security Misconceptions
Cloud Computing (CC) is a distributed computing technology and thus is not new. Similar approach has been implemented in multiuser mainframe environment and in client-server architecture. What is completely new is that the technology is based on distributed legal entities' environment. Interfering computing resources and intersecting legal boundaries create completely new environment, which challenges security research. However, CC has been pushed and promoted by numerous providers as ready to use, without adequate security research.
