Abstract: - The difficulty of how to provide proper security and privacy protection for cloud computing is very important, and as yet not solved. In this paper we review the cloud information accountability framework for the data sharing in which procedural and technical solutions are co-designed to demonstrate accountability by the various researchers to resolving privacy and security risks within the cloud. Cloud computing is a set of services that are provided to a end user over on a leased basis over a network. Usually cloud computing services are delivered by a third party provider who owns the infrastructure. It moves the application software and databases to the most data centers, where the controller of the data and services may not be fully trustworthy which have not been well understood. This paper presents a review on new way to supplement the current consumption and delivery model for IT services based on the Internet, by providing for dynamically scalable framework and often virtualized resources as a service over the Internet. By the time there are a number of notable commercial and individual cloud computing services, including Google, Microsoft and Yahoo. Details of the services provided are abstracted from the users who no longer need to be experts of technology infrastructure. Moreover, users may not know the machines which actually process and host own data. While enjoying the convenience brought by this new technology, end users also start worrying about security of their own personal and important data. The data processed on clouds are often outsourced, leading to a number of issues related to accountability, including the handling of personally identifiable information.
