— This paper represents a method to build a CloudSecurity by giving concept of X.509 authentication services. Weare discussing theory of cloud computing, feature of cloudcomputing and cloud security .We proposed a X.509 format toenhances data security in cloud (Public). Cloud computing is anew computational paradigm that offers an innovative businessmodel for organization.
Cloud computing is relay on internet, which have hardwareand software base with provision of computing infrastructure.Clouds concept based on existing technologies such asvirtualization, utility computing or distributed computing.Cloud computing provides effective IT service delivery andmanagement with efficient lower cost.
Service Layers in Cloud Computing
Software as Service (SaaS): Saas is at the highest layerand offer application such as service on demand viamultitenancy i.e. means a single instance of softwareserves multiple clients in organization. The example of SaaS is salesforce.com2)
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)- Cloud outsources theprovision of the computing infrastructure which isrequired to host service. This infrastructure is providedas a service storage and computing resources such asnetworking, operating system, Load balancers as acloud service. The high Profile Iaas operation isAmazon’s Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2).3)
Platform as a Service (PaaS)- Cloud computing canprovide software platform where systems run onexecution of services is made in a transparent manner.Clouds systems provide additional abstraction levelinstead of supplying a virtualized Infrastructure. A wellKnown example is the Google Apps Engine.
Forms of Cloud
Cloud computing can be categories in three types:1.
Private Cloud: Private clouds are on demand infrastructure.It is owned by single customer who controls the applicationrun, and where they have their own servers, networks.Hence the security risk is reduced in Private cloud. Cloudremains behind the firewall to virtualizing the servers.2.
Public Cloud: Public cloud does not depend on anyorganization; the services provided in Public clouds can beaccessed by any organization. Chances of security risk areslightly higher in public cloud.3.
Hybrid cloud computing is a platformwhich acts as interface between private cloud and publiccloud. It depends on the organizations, which do not wantto put everything in the external cloud (public cloud)while we are hosting some servers in their own internalcloud infrastructure.
Advantages of Cloud Computing
Faster, simpler and cost effective servicesii.
Highly elastic because resources are occupied on thebasis of demandiii.
Optimized utilization of computing resourcesiv.
User virtualizes more resource than they have. Forexample unlimited storagev.
Energy efficient as less power consume on hardwareand software
Securites issues in Cloud
Each type of cloud has certain securities issues. Fewsecurities concern is discussed below.i.
Many organizations share the resources so there is noabsolute control on physical security in cloud model.
