Abstract

Cloud computing technologies have been rapidly adopted by organizations to lower costs and to enable flexible and efficient access to critical data. As these new cloud technologies emerge, cyber security challenges associated with these technologies have increased at a rapid pace. One of the critical areas that needs attention for secure cloud computing is identity management where the multiple identities of cloud users operating possibly in a federated environment have to be managed and maintained. In this paper, we first explore identity management technologies and secure cloud computing technologies. We will then discuss some of the security balances for cloud computing with respect to identity management.
