Security concerns are the number one barrier to cloud services adoption. How do we evaluate a vendor's solution? What is an optimal security architecture? What are consumer versus provider responsibilities? What are industry standard patterns in this regard? This article answers some of these questions based on first hand experience dealing with large scale cloud adoption.
In this IEEE article, author Eric Olden discusses an identity fabric that links multiple applications to a single identity to manage the volume of user identities that network administrators must secure and to enable a full-scale cloud adoption.
In this IEEE panel discussion article, guest editors Ivan Arce and Anup Ghosh facilitated the discussion on cloud computing security risks. The panelists are Eric Grosse (Google Security), John Howie (Microsoft), James Ransome (Cisco), Jim Reavis (Cloud Security Alliance) and Stephen Schmidt (Amazon Web Services).
In this article, Michael Poulin elaborates on the differences between of governance and management and tries to explore the 'wonderland' of governance in a service-oriented environment. 3
