Abstract: -The “lower costs” of cloud services, “flexibility” and the “speed of deployment” are all vastly demanded by most of the organizations in today’s world. However, a common concern remains amongst large enterprises is about the handover of the control of data to cloud providers. It is true that many technology hosting businesses are equipped to provide basic cloud services, but it is necessary for users to be satisfied that the host can protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data with controls and measures that are extensive, efficient and sophisticated. However, the perception of complicating a cloud’s architecture, simply because of apparent security risks, should be resisted; a fine line has to be drawn between practicality and security. This paper gives an insight into the understanding on CLOUD, the service models available, Key challenges in setting up the CLOUD, focuses on the Security Issues related to CLOUD and describes the Security reference model.
