- In this paper we are going to discuss about the security issues of cloud computing which includes storage security, data security and network security. The major security challenge with clouds is that the possessor of the data may not have control of where the data is sited. This is because if one wants to use the features of cloud computing, one must also utilize the resource allocation and scheduling provided by clouds. Therefore there is need to protect the data in the midst of un-trusted processes. The emerging cloud computing model attempts to address the explosive growth of web-connected devices, and handle massive amounts of data.
