Privacy and security challenges in cloud: A review
Dr. Mukesh Singla
Cloud computing is growing in popularity due to its ability to offer dynamically scalable resources provisioned as services regardless of user or location device. However, moving data to the cloud means that the control of the data is more in the hands of the cloud provider rather than the data owner. This is a great challenge that continues to hinder cloud computing from successfully achieving its potential. This is due to the fact that with cloud computing, the storage and processing of private information is done on remote machines that are not owned or even managed by the cloud consumers. This brings about significant security and data privacy concerns that impede the broader adoption of cloud computing, which compromises the vision of cloud computing as a new IT procurement model.
