American College of Commerce and Technology Title: Privacy Challenges in Cloud Computing Submitted by: Chandana Satti Amareswar Reddy Balinadi Roster Numbers: 3,10 Course: CIS 549 Cloud Computing Environments Instructor: Dr. Mehdi Rashidian Date: 05/07/2016
ABSTRACT Privacy is a core issue in today’s online world. The secure release, management and control of personal information into cloud is a big challenge. Many organizations not feel safe to store their data and applications on systems which reside outside of their on-premise datacenters. Privacy issue is a greatest fear of cloud clients. Storing the workloads in shared infrastructure, customer’s private information faces high risk of potential unauthorized access and exposure. Cloud service providers must ensure their customers and provide high degree of transparency into their operations and privacy assurance. It is very important to know who created a piece of data, who modified it and how, and so on. Balancing between data provenance and privacy is a huge challenge in clouds where physical perimeters are abandoned. Privacy, in this paper refers to right to self-determination, which means the right of individuals to ‘know what is known about them’, be aware of the stored information about them in cloud, control how information is communicated and prevent its abuse. In other words, it refers more than just confidentiality of information. This Paper analyses challenges posed by cloud computing and standardization work being done by various standards development organizations to mitigate privacy risks in cloud. Keywords: Cloud Computing, Privacy, Privacy Challenges, Privacy risks in cloud.
