Cloud security model for e-Healthcare applications is a necessary factor for users in terms of privacy and for cloud service providers for legal purposes due to HIPAA.
Cloud Security (CS) is a very wide topic which has many shades. In this article I will discuss the often neglected part that is Forensic. By Definition “Forensic deals with Preservation, Acquisition and Provenance of digital evidences”.
This submission contains video lectures and related course materials from a series of lectures that was taught to Google software engineering interns during the Summer of 2007.

With the adaption of Cloud computing (CC) specially in Governmental and Commercial sectors raised great concerns about security . On average the lack of trust on privacy and security in CC is one of showstopper to its widespread usage.
One aspect of security which lacks further consideration in CC is Forensic. Mostly Forensic is used by either Law enforcement through guide (1) or by System owner after Incident occurs.
Why the Game in case of Forensic of cloud is more tough is the distributed nature of Cloud . What does it mean ? let me first describe in brief what is Cloud computing .. Continue reading

patches fixing the recently-discussed vulnerability CVE-2010-3847 have
finally been released for RHEL5 and its derivatites (SL5, SLC5,

especially those with user access (compute nodes, UIs, etc.).

Yes we need to fully use the hardware, one way is to divide into pieaces and eat them all . That is what means Virtualization.
In start you had one host machine , which means you have take care of their updates, logs, services etc. But if you launch 10 more Virtual machines on it , now you have to manage x10 times more . Plus the communication between hosts and vms.
This is quite tricky.. Several vendors have solutions for it , specifically as Cloud is in RAW term , virtualization magic . More management platform will pop up in future.
Data taken from interview end users , how and if they want to use cloud computing as a storage . or Lets say in plain words “Storage as a Service”, Their main concern is Security issue.
The decision point is the data-value which one wants to put on cloud .
