Introduction to cloud computing Architecture of cloud computing system Security modules for cloud computing Problems associated System analysis System design Advantages Conclusion References

Cloud computing is known as Internet based computing, with shared resources, software and information are provided to computers and other devices based on requirement. Cloud computing is a simple concept , software and services are delivered over the web and through a browser, with no server or client software to install. Cloud Computing is a technology used to access services offered on the Internet cloud.




Various security aspects and modules are integrated in to the cloud computing which provides security to the cloud. This system contains the following modules to provide security for our cloud computing system.

i)Authentication ii) Access control iii) Data security iv) Mechanism to trace user behavior in the cloud

- The Service provider(administrator) of Cloud computing
System provide security for the cloud resources and cloud users. - The service provider can generate the master id to the users to become cloud users and provide role. So that cloud users have an authentication to utilize cloud resources. - He can trace out the users information, cloud history along with session information. - Also he can interact with the cloud users through mail.

- Cloud users can use the cloud resources based on their access control. Cloud users may have accessibility like read and write. - The cloud user who has read accessibility can only use the resources which are available in the cloud and the cloud user who has write accessibility can have permissions to upload files into cloud and also he can utilize the already available resources. - These cloud users can interact with cloud service provider to get change of their accessibility.

The Service provider can provide security to the data (resources of cloud and cloud users). Encryption key and session keys are used for encryption of data to sustain the security of data for a session. Cloud users can provide security through their private master id.


Service provider can view users profile and he can trace out the cloud users behavior through Cloud history. Service provider can also view the session information.

EXISTING SYSTEM: In the existing system, the authentication and confidentiality was not provided in a better way. PROPOSED SYSTEM: Here a method to provide the security for cloud computing system by integrating the several security aspects into cloud computing system. We propose a model system in which cloud computing system is secured in several stages.

To provide flexibility to the users, the interfaces have been developed that are accessible through a browser. The GUIS at the top level have been categorized as 1)Administrative user interface 2)The operational or generic user interface

SYSTEM DESIGN 1)Administrative user interface:

The administrative user interface concentrates on the consistent information that is practically, part of the organizational activities and which needs proper authentication for the data collection.

These interfaces help the administrators with all the transactional states like Data insertion, Data deletion and Date updation along with the extensive data search capabilities.

2)operational or generic user interface:

The operational or generic user interface helps the end users of the system in transactions through the existing data and required services. The operational user interface also helps the ordinary users in managing their own information in a customized manner as per the included flexibilities.

Flexible scaling of resources (resource optimization) Lower computer cost Improve performance Reduce software cost Unlimited storage capacity Universal Document access Easier group collaboration Easy to access Portable and secured service provider Predictable any time, anywhere access to IT resources Rapid, request-driven provisioning

Here, we analyzed the various security aspects of the cloud computing systems at various stages and security threats of the cloud computing system. We analyzed the various kinds of accessing control and authentication and tracing the behavior of the users Mechanism to trace user behavior in the cloud and data security.
