Barhamgi, Mahmoud; Bandara, Arosha K.; Yu, Yijun; Belhajjame, Khalid and Nuseibeh, Bashar (2016). Protecting Privacy in the Cloud: Current Practices, Future Directions. Computer, 49(2) pp. 68–72.



Cloud computing has emerged as a popular datastorage and computation paradigm. One of its major benefits is the pay-per-use pricing model, in which users pay only for the resources they consume with no upfront hardware or software infrastructure costs. In addition, cloud computing gives users scalable and unlimited storage and computation resources to meet changing business needs with minimal management overhead.

On the other hand, cloud users lose control of the systems that manage their data and applications, increasing security and privacy concerns.
