Some members of the TClouds team were invited to write the following book chapter that will be published in May:
Glott, RÃ¼diger, E.Husmann, A. Sadeghi, and Matthias Schunter (2011): Trustworthy Clouds underpinning the Future Internet, to appear in J. Domingue et al. (Eds.): Future Internet Assembly, LNCS 6656, Springer-Verlag, pp. 209â€“221, 2011.
Cloud computing is a new service delivery paradigm that aims to provide standardized services with self-service, pay-per-use, and seemingly unlimited scalability. This paradigm can be implemented on multiple service levels (infrastructures, run-time platform, or actual Software as a Service). They are are expected to be an important component
in the future Internet.
This article introduces upcoming security challenges for cloud services such as multi-tenancy, transparency and establishing trust into correct operation, and security interoperability. For each of these challenges, we introduce existing concepts to mitigate these risks and survey related research in these areas.t:
