What Is Special About Cloud Security?
While cloud security concerns have consistently ranked as one of the top challenges to cloud adoption, it is not clear what security issues are special with respect to cloud computing. To approach this question, the NIST attempts to derive cloud security issues from various cloud definitions and a reference architecture.
According to the study’s author, this lack of novel security controls for cloud may arise from the fact that cloud computing is the convergence of many different technology areas including broadband networks, virtualization, grid computing, service orientation, autonomic systems and Web 2.0.
Use this study to get facts on cloud security so that you can tailor your current security controls and procedures to accommodate this evolving technology.
