A Survey on Security Issues in Cloud Computing

Authors(2) :-Raghvendra Kumar, Arti Pandey

Cloud computing is a natural evolution for data and computation centers with automated systems management, workload balancing, and virtualization technologies. In this paper, the authors discuss security issues, privacy and control issues, accessibility issues, confidentiality, integrity of data and many more for cloud computing. Current solutions for these security risks are also discussed. In addition, we make a list of security items that all users should be aware of before opting to use cloud based services and discuss methods for allowing the user to select specific security levels of security for items. This paper aims to present a survey in cloud computing, which gives solutions for challenges faced by cloud .Further this helps to find out the solution for the drawbacks found in given methods and come up with new solution or method to secure the cloud.
