EDITORIAL: Does Every Cloud have a Silver Lining? Part 2

In Part 2 of this 3 Part Series, Why Cloud Computing is a Bigger Hurdle for B2B versus B2C Applications, we will discuss security and privacy in the cloud.

Cloud computing security issues typically refer to sensitive data access, data segregation, privacy, bug exploitation, recovery, accountability, malicious insiders, management console security, account control, and multi-tenancy issues.  While many Chief Technology Officers point to a lack of security as one of the main reasons they are reluctant to migrate to cloud computing, the fact is that improved security is one of the biggest benefits to migrating.  According to an article in TechNet Magazinea cloud computing infrastructure can actually increase your overall security.

Of particular importance is Privacy, and compliance with, privacy standards. In December 2011, the Computer Security Division, Information Technology Laboratory of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) published Guidelines on Security and Privacy in Public Cloud Computing. This 80-page publication sets forth guidelines and recommendations for organizations to follow when planning, reviewing, negotiating, or initiating a public cloud service outsourcing arrangement.  NIST has made the issue of security easy to overcome by giving clear cut and easy to understand recommendations related to governance, compliance, access management, data protection, and more.

This report is an excellent tool to have on-hand, especially when meeting with potential service, infrastructure and/or platform vendors. For a copy of this report please  visit http://csrc.nist.gov/publications/nistpubs/800-144/SP800-144.pdf.  Refer to page 36 and 37 for full recommendations.

Other, more general recommendations to cloud computing security include cryptography, particularly public key infrastructure (PKI), use of multiple cloud providers, standardization of APIs, and improving virtual machine support and legal support.  Additionally, according to InfoWorld, “Many cloud service providers can deliver the security that enterprises need and SSL (secure sockets layer) certificates are part of the solution. More specifically, SSL is the solution for securing data when it is in motion”.

If you are involved with planning a migration, this in-depth article, Planning your Cloud Computing Strategy, published by PricewaterhouseCoopers, is an outstanding source for further information on security and privacy planning.

Part 3 of this 3 part series will be posted on the eNamix.com blog the last week of September with a discussion on the topic of application performance in the cloud.
