    ‘Cloud Security’ Excerpt

    With the openness of Cloud Computing, security can’t be an afterthought-it has to be built into the DNA of cloud applications from the outset. This book chapter covers the basics, whether your shop or a vendor is doing the coding.

    In “Cloud Security: A
    Comprehensive Guide to Secure Cloud Computing
    ,” authors and security
    experts Ronald L. Krutz and Russell Dean Vines take a look at the advantages of cloud
    computing while outlining the security risks presented by these services.

    Our excerpt comes from the first chapter, entitled “Cloud Computing Software
    Security Fundamentals.” This chapter emphasizes the importance of building security
    measures into the software development life cycle for cloud computing, whether code is
    being created by the cloud provider or the customer.
