SURVEY ON CLOUD COMPUTING VULNERABILITY AND CYBER ATTACKS: A DEFENSIVE APPROACH
Cyber attacks against cloud computing discourage users to migrate to cloud computing. Cloud computing currently has weaknesses in terms of securing data. Unprotected data and weak storage security are potential threats to cloud computing. There are security risks and they should be considered carefully before enterprises migrate to cloud computing. Specifying cloud computing vulnerabilities and defining cyber attacks against infrastructure of the Cloud are the targets of this research. Mitigation of the non-technical problems may decrease the security problems. However, cryptographics, distributed denial of service and flooding attacks damage the servers and services. In this research, my aim is to demonstrate cloud computing vulnerability and the threats against data and storage. Once the cloud security problems are defined, the next step is to look for a solution. Using forensic methods to inspect intrusion attempts, implementing an online forensic workstation monitoring the login details of cloud authentication server, providing evidence of cyber crime are recommended.
