ABSTRACT
Cloud computing is one of the today’s most excitingtechnology because of its cost-reducing associated withcomputing while increasing flexibility and scalability forcomputer processes. In the past few years, cloud computing hasgrowing from being a promising business idea to one of thefastest growing parts of the IT industry. Even there are greatbenefits to be gained from cloud computing, it also enables newcategories of threats to be introduced. Many IT companies haveexpresses concern about critical issues (like security) that existwith the widespread implementation of cloud computing.In rebuilding, considering the facet of cloud as a socialinfrastructure, security is a critical problem of clouds. Most ofinsecurity against clouds can be summarized as a socialinsecurity, which classified into multiple stakeholder problems,the open space security problem, and the mission critical datahandling problem. Security, in particular, is one of the mostargued issues in cloud computing. Several enterprises look atcloud computing warily because of projected security issues incloud computing. These threats are a result of the cloud virtualinfrastructure complexity created by the adaptation of thevirtualization technology. This paper gives a brief introduction tothe cloud computing platform and the services it provides. Inparticular, we discuss some of the key security issues as well asthe research challenges to secure cloud
