Abstract -
The fascinating world of Cloud computing has definitely changed the way of using computers and the Internet. The impact it has left so far on how IT and business services are delivered and managed is undeniable. However, the evolutionary change that Cloud computing has left on the IT landscape has given rise to a range of concerns by Cloud providers and customers. The current study introduces and examines two major problems in Cloud computing system. The first one is the Cloud internal and external data security and client’s privacy, and the tasks mobility and resources utilization. The study also provides practical solutions to the two aforementioned problems and a prototype, called SPI, which has been successfully tested. The present study suggests using SSL with proxy server and secured access to members control panel for Cloud external data security. As for internal security and client’s privacy, multiple approaches have been applied.
