Security in cloud computing and virtual environments
MetadataShow full item record
Cloud computing is a big buzzwords today. Just watch the commercials on TV and I can promise that you will hear the word cloud service at least once. With the growth of cloud technology steadily rising, and everything from cellphones to cars connected to the cloud, how secure is cloud technology? What are the caveats of using cloud technology? And how does it all work? This thesis will discuss cloud security and the underlying technology called Virtualization to better understand the security from a technical point of view. We will show how some vulnerabilities can be utilized to steal personal information, and how an attacker can exploit vulnerabilities to take control of a system.
