Cloud computing, a rapidly developing information technology has becoming a well-known the whole world. Cloud computing is Internet-based computing, whereby shared resources, software and information, are provided to computers and devices on-demand, like the electricity grid. Cloud computing is the product of the fusion of traditional computing technology and network technology like grid computing, distributed computing parallel computing and so on. Companies, such as Amazon, Google, Microsoft and so on, accelerate their paces in developing Cloud Computing systems and enhancing their services to provide for a larger amount of users. However, security and privacy issues present a strong barrier for users to adapt into Cloud Computing systems. It is a new technology that satisfies a user’s requirement for computing resources like networks, storage, servers, services and applications, without physically acquiring them. It reduces the overhead of the organization of marinating the large system but it has associated risks and threats also which include – security, data leakage, insecure interface and sharing of resources and inside attacks.
