Provenance is a vital requirement for the success of Clouds, and it is associated with many challenges that are difficult to deal with. In this paper, we explore this area, we identify the problems in current Cloud provenance, we identify the challenges of having trustworthy secure Cloud provenance, and we identify the requirements which could address the identified challenges. We then propose a foundation framework for establishing trust in Cloud provenance. Finally, we draw our research agenda in this direction.
