SeCloud- A secured Cloud Model
Department Of computer Science Jamia Hamdard ,New Delhi Samwasim2002@gmail.com
Abstract² Could Computing is emerging as a enticing field in IT sector because of its numerous
benefits ranging from its efficiency to scalability . It changes the total scenario of today's IT infrastructure because of its flexibility and computational performance and have major advantages by providing low manpower load on software updates and maintenance. Since cloud computing share resources via the network. This arises security problems to protect cloud computing application. The tag "access anywhere" gives the security concern a boost. This paper propose a secure cloud model known as SeCloud which covers the cloud security details like its loopholes, its vulnerabilities , effective exploits ,possible backdoor may used in it and the effective way to prevent all of the above using SeCloud. Keywords-cloud computing; trusted computing; cloud security
Cloud Computing represents one of the most important shifts in information technology. Cloud gives the power to the consumer to access related data anywhere with much more computational power without any extra hardware cost. Cloud computing is a increased level of Virtualization, grid computing and SOA. The reason of why cloud computing is a hot topic in IT is its flexibility and amazing computational power. But still cloud computing implementation in an enterprise is low because of security reason. Security is the main fact of the low implementation of clouds in an enterprise. Almost 70% of consumers before adoption show there concerns on cloud's security. Some of the reasons are:y Confidentiality:- The biggest problem people sought is the data stored in a third party may give rise to data leakage or data breach. y Access control and identity management:- as clouds are highly virtualized the need of access control is much important to secure data flow. y Data segregation: cloud is typically in a shared environment, so it is mandatory to encrypt the data. On the client side the costumer planning to have a cloud of there business have complications which are:y Data location: Costumer don¶t have a knowledge of there data whereabouts. In fact, they even don¶t know which country it will be stored in. y Recovery: He should know that what will happen to his data and service in case of a disaster. Thus a secure cloud have all the above mentioned solution. Although there are various Cloud Model which provide security, but each of them have its own pro/cons. SaaS (Software As a service):- these are used to manage applications in the clouds. The advantages are : High Adoption and Upgrades and maintenance¶s are managed by clouds service provider where as it have

its counterpart which is: Risk of data loss while accessing software and Dependence on high speed internet.
