Cloud computing provides people a way to share large amount of distributed resources belonging to different organizations. That is a good way to share many kinds of distributed resources, but it also makes security problems more complicate and more important for users than before. Cloud cartography could be used by an attacker who wanted to place his own VM next to a target's VM and exploit vulnerabilities. To create the map, the attacker would deploy a large number of VMs in the service provider's cloud.
