Mahmoud K.I Umar


Cloud computing in the last few years has elevated to become a promising business concept to a lot of IT industries and even corporate industries too. It has raised IT to a higher level by offering environment data storage and a flexible computing processing power that is capable to help industries to be elastic to demand and supply, while reducing capital expenditure. However, the problem now is organizations are cautious about security; concerns always arise as soon as one begins to run applications that are far from within its own network. It has been shown that there exist a lot of security risk with cloud computing. This paper proposes a solution that can be adapted by large corporate networks. The existing authentication infrastructure will be used to enhance security of the cloud services.
