Securing Cloud From Attacks Based on Intrusion Detection System
Cloud Computing provides a framework for supporting end users easily attaching powerful services and applications through Internet. Cloud Computing is increasingly becoming popular as many enterprise applications and data are moving into cloud platforms. Because of their distributed nature, cloud computing environments are easy targets for intruders looking for possible vulnerabilities to exploit. However, with the extensive use of cloud computing, security issues came out on a growing scale. It is necessary to solve these security issues to promote the wider applications of cloud computing. To provide secure and reliable services in cloud computing environment is an important issue. Therefore, a Cloud computing system needs to contain some Intrusion Detection Systems (IDSs) for protecting each virtual machine against threats.
