EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This work provides guidelines for the practical implementation of security architecture in a particular corporate cloud. The authors are mathematicians and specialists in data modeling and security. Experience of scientific collaboration with industry inspired the authors to attempt to conceptualize the common processes and strategies in cloud security, in order to make security system deployment as simple and transparent as possible. The deployment is broken into several essential steps that allow the functionality of security architecture for any cloud to be split into a set of modules. The continuous verification of security support on all levels (data, processes and communication channels) helps to avoid common security breaches and protect against the most dangerous attacks. Additionally, performing the proposed optimization of the selected set of mechanisms will enhance the efficiency of the security system.

Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This book presents a range of cloud computing security challenges and promising solution paths. The first two chapters focus on practical considerations of cloud computing. In Chapter 1, Chandramouli, Iorga, and Chokani describe the evolution of cloud computing and the current state of practice, followed by the challenges of cryptographic key management in the cloud. In Chapter 2, Chen and Sion present a dollar cost model of cloud computing and explore the economic viability of cloud computing with and without security mechanisms involving cryptographic mechanisms. The next two chapters address security issues of the cloud infrastructure. In Chapter 3, Szefer and Lee describe a hardware-enhanced security architecture that protects the confidentiality and integrity of a virtual machine’s memory from an untrusted or malicious hypervisor. In Chapter 4, Tsugawa et al. discuss the security issues introduced when Software-Defined Networking (SDN) is deployed within and across clouds. Chapters 5-9 focus on the protection of data stored in the cloud. In Chapter 5, Wang et al. present two storage isolation schemes that enable cloud users with high security requirements to verify that their disk storage is isolated from some or all other users, without any cooperation from cloud service providers. In Chapter 6, De Capitani di Vimercati, Foresti, and Samarati describe emerging approaches for protecting data stored externally and for enforcing fine-grained and selective accesses on them, and illustrate how the combination of these approaches can introduce new privacy risks. In Chapter 7, Le, Kant, and Jajodia explore data access challenges in collaborative enterprise computing environments where multiple parties formulate their own authorization rules, and discuss the problems of rule consistency, enforcement, and dynamic updates. In Chapter 8, Smith et al. address key challenges to the practical realization of a system that supports query execution over remote encrypted data without exposing decryption keys or plaintext at the server. In Chapter 9, Sun et al. provide an overview of secure search techniques over encrypted data, and then elaborate on a scheme that can achieve privacy-preserving multi-keyword text search. The next three chapters focus on the secure deployment of computations to the cloud. In Chapter 10, Oktay el al. present a risk-based approach for workload partitioning in hybrid clouds that selectively outsources data and computation based on their level of sensitivity. The chapter also describes a vulnerability assessment framework for cloud computing environments. In Chapter 11, Albanese et al. present a solution for deploying a mission in the cloud while minimizing the mission’s exposure to known vulnerabilities, and a cost-effective approach to harden the computational resources selected to support the mission. In Chapter 12, Kontaxis et al. describe a system that generates computational decoys to introduce uncertainty and deceive adversaries as to which data and computation is legitimate. The last section of the book addresses issues related to security monitoring and system resilience. In Chapter 13, Zhou presents a secure, provenance-based capability that captures dependencies between system states, tracks state changes over time, and that answers attribution questions about the existence, or change, of a system’s state at a given time. In Chapter 14, Wu et al. present a monitoring capability for multicore architectures that runs monitoring threads concurrently with user or kernel code to constantly check for security violations. Finally, in Chapter 15, Hasan Cam describes how to manage the risk and resilience of cyber-physical systems by employing controllability and observability techniques for linear and non-linear systems.

Security For Cloud Storage Systems

Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Cloud storage is an important service of cloud computing, which offers service for data owners to host their data in the cloud. This new paradigm of data hosting and data access services introduces two major security concerns. The first is the protection of data integrity. Data owners may not fully trust the cloud server and worry that data stored in the cloud could be corrupted or even removed. The second is data access control. Data owners may worry that some dishonest servers provide data access to users that are not permitted for profit gain and thus they can no longer rely on the servers for access control. To protect the data integrity in the cloud, an efficient and secure dynamic auditing protocol is introduced, which can support dynamic auditing and batch auditing. To ensure the data security in the cloud, two efficient and secure data access control schemes are introduced in this brief: ABAC for Single-authority Systems and DAC-MACS for Multi-authority Systems. While Ciphertext-Policy Attribute-based Encryption (CP-ABE) is a promising technique for access control of encrypted data, the existing schemes cannot be directly applied to data access control for cloud storage systems because of the attribute revocation problem. To solve the attribute revocation problem, new Revocable CP-ABE methods are proposed in both ABAC and DAC-MACS.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This book addresses topics related to cloud and Big Data technologies, architecture and applications including distributed computing and data centers, cloud infrastructure and security, and end-user services. The majority of the book is devoted to the security aspects of cloud computing and Big Data. Cloud computing, which can be seen as any subscription-based or pay-per-use service that extends the Internet’s existing capabilities, has gained considerable attention from both academia and the IT industry as a new infrastructure requiring smaller investments in hardware platforms, staff training, or licensing software tools. It is a new paradigm that has ushered in a revolution in both data storage and computation. In parallel to this progress, Big Data technologies, which rely heavily on cloud computing platforms for both data storage and processing, have been developed and deployed at breathtaking speed. They are among the most frequently used technologies for developing applications and services in many fields, such as the web, health, and energy. Accordingly, cloud computing and Big Data technologies are two of the most central current and future research mainstreams. They involve and impact a host of fields, including business, scientific research, and public and private administration. Gathering extended versions of the best papers presented at the Third International Conference on Cloud Computing Technologies and Applications (CloudTech’17), this book offers a valuable resource for all Information System managers, researchers, students, developers, and policymakers involved in the technological and application aspects of cloud computing and Big Data.
