Cloud computing is an emerging trends, which promises to make the utility computing model comprehensively implemented by using virtualization technologies. It holds the potential to eliminate the requirements for setting up of high cost computing infrastructure for the IT-based solutions and services that the industry uses. An increasing number of organizations have started providing and using Cloud enabled infrastructures and services. In a cloud environment, the entire data reside over a set of networked resources, enabling the data to be accessed through virtual machines. Since these data centers may lie in any corner of the world beyond the reach and control of users, there are multiple privacy and security issues to be considered and taken care of. This paper aims to summarize the security counter measures that cloud computing face.
