"Privacy and the Cloud"

 

 

Abstract

 

Cloud computing offers a huge potential both for efficiency and new business opportunities (especially in service composition), and is almost certain to deeply transform our IT. However, the convenience and efficiency of this approach comes with a range of potential privacy and security risks. Indeed, a key barrier to the widespread uptake of cloud computing is the lack of trust in clouds by potential customers. This concern is shared by experts: the European Network and Information Security Agency (ENISA)'s cloud computing risk assessment report states "loss of governance" as a top risk of cloud computing, and "data loss or leakages" is one of the top seven threats the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) lists in its Top Threats to Cloud Computing report.

In this talk I will assess how privacy, security and trust issues occur in the context of cloud computing and explain how complementary regulatory, procedural and technical provisions can be used to help address these issues. In particular, accountability is likely to become a core concept in both the cloud and in new mechanisms that help increase trust in cloud computing. It is especially helpful for protecting sensitive or confidential information, enhancing consumer trust, clarifying the legal situation in cloud computing, and facilitating cross-border data transfers. I will also talk about some of the innovative technical solutions that we are developing in HP Labs to enhance privacy in the cloud.
