An Overview of Public Cloud Security Issues

Atefeh Heydari, Mohammad Ali Tavakoli, Mohammad Riazi


Traditionally, computational needs of organizations were alleviated by purchasing, updating and maintaining required equipments. Beside expensive devices, physical space to hold them, technical staffs to maintain them and many other side costs were essential prerequisites of this matter. Nowadays with the development of cloud computing services, a huge number of peoples and organizations are served in terms of computational needs by large scale computing platforms. Offering enormous amounts of economical compute resources on-demand motivates organizations to outsource their computational needs incrementally. Public cloud computing vendors offer their infrastructure to the customers via the internet. It means that the control of customers’ data is not in their hands anymore. Unfortunately various security issues are emerged from this subject. In this paper the security issues of public cloud computing are overviewed. More destructive security issues are highlighted in order to be used by organizations in making better decisions for moving to cloud.
