Cloud computing has gained paramount attention and most of the companies are adopting this new paradigm and gaining significant benefits. As number of applications and business operations are being facilitated by the cloud computing paradigm, it has become the potential target to attackers. The importance of well-organized architecture and security roles have become greater with the growing popularity.

[/b] [b]Cloud Security: Attacks, Techniques, Tools, and Challenges, provides an in-depth technical description about various key essential aspects of cloud security. We have endeavored to provide a technical foundation that will be practically useful not just for students and independent researchers but also for professional cloud security analysts for conducting security procedures, and all those who are curious in the field of cloud security

The book offers comprehensive coverage of the most essential topics, including:

  • Basic fundamentals of Cloud Computing
  • Cloud security concepts, vulnerabilities, security standards and reference models
  • Cloud security goals, key issues and privacy requirements
