Abstract: Cloud computing security is a fast-growing service that provides many of the same functionalities as traditional IT security. This includes protecting critical information from theft, data leakage and deletion. One of the benefits of cloud services is that you can operate at scale and still remain secure. It is similar to how you currently manage security, but now you have new ways of delivering security solutions that address new areas of concern. Cloud security does not change the approach on how to manage security from preventing to detective and corrective actions. But it does however give you the ability to perform these activities in a more agile manner. This paper provides a survey on generic architecture of cloud and the challenges in making the cloud secure.
Keywords: Cloud Architecture, Security issues, challenges
