Cloud computing model is an advanced framework which utilizes consolidated idea of “utility
computing” and “software-as-a-service”, providing convenient and on-demand services to
requested end users. Security in cloud figuring is a basic angle confronting a few issues that must be
mulled over. Safety from any sort of external threats must be taken into care by the cloud service
provider and consumer so that any data theft issue is not faced by the customer afterwards. A
probability emerges that a noxious customer can invade the cloud by having honest customers,
therefore defiling the entire cloud and affecting various customers who are sharing the tainted cloud
in the meantime. This exploration covers the parameters that impact the security of the cloud and it
in this way it also examines cloud security issues looked by cloud expert centres and purchasers of
cloud, for instance, data integrity and other security issues.
