Book Description :

This book provides solutions for securing important data stored in something as nebulous sounding as a cloud. A primer on the concepts behind security and the cloud, it explains where and how to store data and what should be avoided at all costs. It presents the views and insight of the leading experts on the state of cloud computing security and its future. It also provides no-nonsense info on cloud security technologies and models. Securing the Cloud: Security Strategies for the Ubiquitous Data Center takes the position that cloud security is an extension of recognized, established security principles into cloud-based deployments. It explores how those principles can be put into practice to protect cloud-based infrastructure and data, traditional infrastructure, and hybrid architectures combining cloud and on-premises infrastructure. Cloud computing is evolving so rapidly that regulations and technology have not necessarily been able to keep pace. IT professionals are frequently left to force fit pre-existing solutions onto new infrastructure and architectures for which they may be very poor fits. This book looks at how those "square peg/round hole" solutions are implemented and explains ways in which the pegs, the holes, or both may be adjusted for a more perfect fit.

Book Description :

This comprehensive resource presents a highly informative overview of cloud computing security issues. This book focuses on relevant approaches aimed at monitoring and protecting computation and data hosted on heterogeneous computing resources. The most critical security aspects are thoroughly discussed, highlighting the importance of reliable secure computation over remote heterogeneous cloud nodes. This book shows that present cloud computing is inherently insecure therefore advanced execution models have to be developed to prevent unauthorized users from accessing or affecting others' data and computation. The cloud approach enables on-demand scalable services that allow performing large computations without the costs and maintenance/management issues of costly server farms (thus enabling a novel kind of outsourced computing). Essential reading for software and computer engineers as well as data architects and IT professionals to better understand the complexity and heterogeneity of modern cloud- based scenarios.

Book Description :

For cloud users and providers alike, security is an everyday concern, yet there are very few books covering cloud security as a main subject. This book will help address this information gap from an Information Technology solution and usage-centric view of cloud infrastructure security. The book highlights the fundamental technology components necessary to build and enable trusted clouds. Here also is an explanation of the security and compliance challenges organizations face as they migrate mission-critical applications to the cloud, and how trusted clouds, that have their integrity rooted in hardware, can address these challenges. This book provides: Use cases and solution reference architectures to enable infrastructure integrity and the creation of trusted pools leveraging Intel Trusted Execution Technology (TXT). Trusted geo-location management in the cloud, enabling workload and data location compliance and boundary control usages in the cloud. OpenStack-based reference architecture of tenant-controlled virtual machine and workload protection in the cloud. A reference design to enable secure hybrid clouds for a cloud bursting use case, providing infrastructure visibility and control to organizations. "A valuable guide to the next generation of cloud security and hardware based root of trust. More than an explanation of the what and how, is the explanation of why. And why you can’t afford to ignore it!" —Vince Lubsey, Vice President, Product Development, Virtustream Inc. " Raghu provides a valuable reference for the new 'inside out' approach, where trust in hardware, software, and privileged users is never assumed—but instead measured, attested, and limited according to least privilege principles." —John Skinner, Vice President, HyTrust Inc. "Traditional parameter based defenses are in sufficient in the cloud. Raghu's book addresses this problem head-on by highlighting unique usage models to enable trusted infrastructure in this open environment. A must read if you are exposed in cloud." —Nikhil Sharma, Sr. Director of Cloud Solutions, Office of CTO, EMC Corporation What you’ll learn Usage models, hardware and software technology components to enable trusted clouds.

Securing Cloud Services - A pragmatic guide gives an overview of security architecture processes and explains how they may be used to derive an appropriate set of security controls to manage the risks associated with working in the Cloud. The book: Introduces the concepts of Cloud computing and the associated security threats; Explains key security architectures and how they can be applied to Cloud services; and Covers security considerations for the different Cloud service models: IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service), PaaS (Platform as a Service), SaaS (Software as a Service) and FaaS (Function as a Service). Cloud computing represents a major change to the IT services landscape, but it also introduces changes to the risk landscape, which need to be understood and addressed. The flexibility of Cloud computing does not come without compromise or risk. Security remains a major concern for CIOs (chief information officers) considering a move to Cloud-based services. This book gives organisations pragmatic guidance on how to achieve consistent and cohesive security across their IT services - regardless of whether those services are hosted on-premises, on Cloud services or using a combination of both. This guidance in Securing Cloud Services - A pragmatic guide is provided through the application of a Security Reference Model to the different Cloud delivery models - IaaS, PaaS and SaaS - and also considers the changes in approach required to work securely with the newer FaaS model. Part 1 introduces the concepts embodied within Cloud computing, describes the associated security threats and lists some of the leading industry initiatives dedicated to improving the security of Cloud services. Part 2 introduces security architecture concepts and a conceptual Security Reference Model. This model is then applied to the different Cloud service models to show how the conceptual security services within the reference model can be delivered for each Cloud service model. This book will help organisations looking to implement Cloud services aimed at the enterprise - such as Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform and Salesforce - and to do so in a risk-managed manner. It is aimed at business decision makers, senior IT stakeholders, enterprise architects, information security professionals. Manage the risks associated with Cloud computing - buy this book today!

Book Description :

Cloud computing is a method of delivering computing resources. Cloud computing services ranging from data storage and processing to software, such as customer relationship management systems, are now available instantly and on demand. In times of financial and economic hardship, this new low cost of ownership model for computing has gotten lots of attention and is seeing increasing global investment. Generally speaking, cloud computing provides implementation agility, lower capital expenditure, location independence, resource pooling, broad network access, reliability, scalability, elasticity, and ease of maintenance. While in most cases cloud computing can improve security due to ease of management, the provider’s lack of knowledge and experience can jeopardize customer environments. This chapter aims to discuss various cloud computing environments and methods to make them more secure for hosting companies and their customers.
