Analysis and Assessment of the Vulnerabilities in Cloud Computing

Nailah Afshan


The field of cloud computing has become a highly popular means for the smooth provision of various Information Technology (IT)-enabled business services. In today's dynamic and rapidly changing computing era, most of the organizations have chosen it as basic technology resource. Consequently, due to the expansion in usability and functionality unique security vulnerabilities and threats are emerging which act as the most substantial roadblock for cloud computing thereby, requiring timely attention. It is the need of hour to understand and mitigate such threats and vulnerabilities so as to gain a better insight into the required techniques and infrastructure. This would help in making the cloud architecture less vulnerable which in turn will make our future easier and technologically more sound. This paper focuses on exploring the various threats and vulnerabilities associated with the cloud computing technologies.
