Cloud Security: Concepts, Applications and Perspectives

Gupta, Brij B.


Cloud computing is an indispensable part of the modern Information and Communication Technology (ICT) systems. Cloud computing services have proven to be of significant importance, and promote quickly deployable and scalable IT solutions with reduced infrastructure costs. However, utilization of cloud also raises concerns such as security, privacy, latency, governance, etc., that keep it from turning into the predominant option for critical frameworks. As such, there is an urgent need to identify these concerns and to address them.

Cloud Security: Concepts, Applications and Perspectives is a comprehensive work with substantial technical details for introducing the state-of-the-art research and development on various approaches for security and privacy of cloud services, novel attacks on cloud services, cloud forensics, novel defenses for cloud service attacks, and cloud security analysis. It discusses the present techniques and methodologies, and provides a wide range of examples and illustrations to effectively show the concepts, applications and perspectives of security in cloud computing. This highly informative book will prepare readers to exercise better protection by understanding the motivation of attackers and to deal with them to mitigate the situation. In addition, it covers future research directions in the domain.

This book is suitable for professionals in the field, researchers and students who are want to carry out research in the field of computer and cloud security, faculty members across universities, and software developers engaged in software development in the field.
